If you could create one thing in Milwaukee, what would it be?

I really enjoy the atmosphere at UW- Madison’s Union Terrace. I would love to see something similar built off of Lake Michigan to help gather the community in order to enjoy Milwaukee’s natural beauty.

What local restaurant is at the top of your list?

It’s a tie between Smoke Shack and Honeypie Cafe. My boyfriend and I try to make it to Smoke Shack once a month. We are a fan of the atmosphere, bbq and drinks. As a huge breakfast fan, I thoroughly enjoy Honeypie’s variety and huge portions. Their pies are delicious!

Walks to the lakefront, brunch, outdoor patios and board games.

What neighborhood do you live in and why do you love it?

I live in the Brewers’ Hill neighborhood. It’s a great spot since it tends to be on the quiet side. The Riverwalk is a perfect place to take a stroll and soak in the city view. I’m also within walking distance of Lakefront Brewery, Beerline Cafe and Wolf Beach. I love to support these local businesses!
