Yesterday I put a call out on Instagram for Milwaukee recommendations and people delivered! I did it initially for my own purposes, but there were so many great tips, I thought I should share them publicly. Here they are, below. If you have more information, or if I recorded anything wrong, please let me know! In an ideal world, I'd have more details on each of these, but that might come through new visits.
