Mini Donut Love
I spent most of the past weekend visiting my brother and his best friend, Ben, who are currently residing at my parent's house (sans parents) in Brookfield, where they are building a Web site, which they hope to launch in the near future. They've been putting in extreme hours, and I thought it might be nice to visit and take them out for a little fun.
When I arrived late in the afternoon on Saturday, we headed to Milwaukee's East side, which offers the area's best and most trendy bars and restaurants. We decided on Pizza Man for dinner, which is a Milwaukee classic and Korevec family favorite. We shared a small basket of garlic bread, which was freshly kissed with fresh garlic and butter, followed by the "Pizza Man Special," a 16-inch thin crust pizza with Cheese, Sausage, Pepperoni, Mushrooms, Black Olives, Green Peppers, and Onions.
Afterwards, we went to a nearby bowling alley for pints of New Glarus Snowshoe Ale, followed by a game of intense bowling. Kelly was the most terrible bowler I've ever seen. Although he did come back strong in the end with strikes in the last two frames, it was obviously too little, too late, because I still won. For dessert, we hit up Sil's Drive-Thru, which is a tiny take-out mini-donut shop located on the corners of North and Oakland avenues in an architecturally unique bus stop structure. Sil's donuts are made while you wait on a fascinating assembly line fryer contraption. It's your choice of cinnamon sugar or powdered donuts, or the combo bag. We opted for the cinnamon sugar bag and a cup of apple cider. Delicious. Sil's is my new Milwaukee favorite, perfect for the early morning commute or late-night munchies.
It was nice to see Kelly and Ben. I enjoyed catching up and hanging out. I'm also very excited to share their new Web site when it goes live!
