Summer in the midwest is difficult. There’s an incredible amount of pressure to enjoy the outdoors and the events and activities while the nice weather is here, yet you are coated in sweat and mosquitoes the second you walk out the door. But I’m just a complainer and I’ll take this weather any day over the sub-zero bullshit that will be here in six months. Basically I’m trying to justify that I’m writing this post almost two months after I participated in the activities this post describes. Whatever, I’ve been busy watching Lady Dynamite, k?
Earlier this summer, Vintown and I rented kayaks from Milwaukee Kayak Company and meandered up the Milwaukee River eventually ending up at Lakefront Brewery. Sure, sure – we had seen all these sights before, but not from this view. Being in the kayak was a tad nerve-wracking; I mean, who wants to have their body that close to any river in Milwaukee? Insert gross-face emoji here, please.
