An Outing on an Outing

the-steaming-cup-at-the-farmers-market

One of the things I love about living smack in the middle of downtown is being able to walk all over the downtown area without having to worry about traffic, parking and all the headaches that come from having to drive to the downtown area.

It also means the local farmer’s market is JUUUUUUST down the street 😀

I usually go down there, get some fresh cheese curd, various veggies I’m gonna use for the week, and stop for my brat-breakfast (brat, kraut, spicy mustard, nekkid (no bun)).  I also grab something bakery for the SQO, and any other odds or ends that strike my fancy.  (found a fantastic smoked tomato sauce a couple of weeks ago, and the DIL almost drooled when she found some pickled okra).

I always finish my Saturday market excursion with a stop at my favorite coffee place for a good cup of cold brew:  The Steaming Cup.

Here’s a longer shot of the building in the background…it’s the building with the conical top on the corner:

Downtown Summer 2016

This morning, when they took my order & gave me the number to hang on to…I was stunned.

HowInHell did they know I hit the big Five-Oh???

    • That’s what I love about downtown Waukesha – it hasn’t degraded to rot.

      It USED to be, from what I’ve read. The only activity on any given weekday night was the drunks staggering out of the bars, and litter blowing down the street.

      It changed about a decade ago. The business owners decided to take things in hand, organized year-round activities (culminating with the Friday Night Live events throughout the summer months), and basically, turned out downtown area into something people WANTED to visit again.
