Tank Wall, Harley-Davidson Museum
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!

One of the many things I am loving about married life, is getting to celebrate the little we-just-started-dating-esque anniversaries once again. This week marks our one month anniversary, celebrated with some beautiful fall blooms from the husband, and a little weekend getaway. As we were heading down to the Chicago area for a baptism on Sunday, we decided to extend our little trip and head down Saturday night for a late night drink at Pops for Champagne and dinner at our favorite Chicago restaurant, Quartino Ristorante & Wine Bar, which has the most incredible Italian small-plates.
