Steve played a little battle of the bands with his friend Subourbon Son at Kochanskis-Concertina-Beer-Hall. It was two –one man bands set up at either end of the bar and they took turns playing sets. It was a very interesting night to say the least. After yet another very short night we woke up early the next morning and I have to admit I was a little crabby and not too excited to see Milwaukee, but once we started driving around I eventually had to get excited about it! What an interesting and beautiful city, I wish we could have spent more time there. One stop was the Pabst Mansion it had incredible iron, wood, and stone work. The craftsmanship was unbelievable, I was snapping images left and right! This is someplace I would highly recommend visiting while in Milwaukee. We also walked by the Pabst Theater. We checked out the Pabst brewery of course. With rockabilly music fans being such huge PBR drinkers how could we not swing by there. We visited the gift shop but didn’t have time for the tour, we did grab some lunch however at a street vendor and set on a very old stoop to eat -talk about getting in the city spirit! There is so much more to say about this trip but I have rambled long enough for now. I haven’t even mentioned the Kenosha Pierhead Lighthouse. This may be a two parter.
