Ready for brisk Fall air, cozy knit sweaters and stockings, and cool weather comfort food (dying to try absolutely all of these recipes). Happy first day of Autumn everyone!
In celebration of his upcoming birthday, my father is taking on Wisconsin’s Tough Mudder today, a hardcore 11.8 mile “obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie.” Though my dad is an experienced triathlete, this is going to be a toughie, boasting obstacle titles such as the “Electric Eel” and “Firewalker.” Seeing as how the longest race I have ever participated in was a 15k, (and sans climbing walls and barbed wire laden mud pits), I am in total awe of my pops. I couldn’t ask for a more inspiring father! Happy birthday Dad, and good luck to all you Tough Mudders competing today!
This Labor Day weekend, Milwaukee will host a monumental celebration for Harley-Davidson’s 110th Anniversary, featuring 60 bands, street parties featuring bikes from all over the world, and a host activities on the Harley-Davidson Museum grounds. If you’ve never visited the Harley-Davidson Museum, it is striking. Truly impeccably designed. Each artfully displayed exhibit explores the history of the Harley, and culture surrounding the iconic company. Whether you have little to no interest in motorcycles, or are a life-long enthusiast, do not miss out on this museum.
If you plan to visit the Harley-Davidson Museum this Labor Day weekend, timed ticketing reservations are highly recommended. As I’ve already toured the museum, I’ll be taking in the celebration at a distance and doing a little people watching (with a cocktail in hand) at The Yard, the fabulous patio at Milwaukee’s boutique hotel, The Iron Horse (appropriately geared toward motorcycle enthusiasts). Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!
