Wooster Square Blossom Blogs Two! First: Brews, Brats, Baseball, and Hog Heaven in Milwaukee Wisconsin

Meanwhile, here in New Haven a Whole World of things to do with the International Festival for Arts and Ideas!!

If you are looking for fun in Wooster Square and New Haven this week, you won't have to look far. There's a free concert on The New Haven Green.. Friday, Singer/songwriter Lucinda Williams.

 Some may not know but her father, who died on January 1st, 2015, was an accomplished Poet and author, Stanley Miller Williams. Mr Williams read one of his poems at President Clinton's Inauguration. (Bill, not Hillary if you are reading this in 2 years.) 

And the fun is just not on the Green, there are tons of things to do with over a week left of International Arts and Ideas Festival running all over our well planned and loved, Elm City.

 Why Milwaukee Wisconsin? 

Why not? And we use this annual migration to some City with a baseball stadium to meet up with family from Midland, Ann Arbor and Plymouth Michigan. Cheryl's Mom (who grew up in Milwaukee), nephews, Aunt, Cousin and Brother and sister in law meet up with for a long weekend. We usually find time to check out the Baseball parks too. The home of Miller beer was the Michigan vote. 

Also, we were supposed to go to see the Cubs and White Sox last year, but the Sox were rained out.
However, the front office of the Chicago White Sox gave us Tickets to a game this year. So flying into and out of Chicago and seeing the White Sox is the second of The Wooster Square Blossom Blogs Two!

Check out some of Milwaukee sights!

Follow the yellow brick road!

...or the Milwaukee River Walk.

it goes on and on.

Downtown Digs. 

Cool yellow flowers, even cooler temps!
(it seemed like it rained 5 days in a row...
I am told, it rained 5 days in a row!)

If you are heading to Milwaukee, be sure 
to bring at least a light jacket and
a sweatshirt. The breeze off the lake make
it feel like its in the 40s and 50s.
