I have to say the room we got at the Hampton Inn-Downtown was not my fave. Harsh lighting and bare decor with one small high window that looked up an air shaft. It felt damp and dungeon-y. But our focus was the James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt concert that evening, so shan't dwell on the room.
We needed a bite, so we walked a few blocks to the Miller Time Pub and Grill. We enjoyed lunch here a few years back when we attended the Milwaukee Bead and Button Show and it did not disappoint. Burgers were the top pick and really good per comments of my pals. I had something veggie.
After lunch Mike took a nap and we other three meandered our way to the waterfront Summerfest ticket office where our tickets were on hold. We enjoyed the sights along the way.
This was a huge mural on the side of a multi-story building. One day I'll try to decipher the rebus or maybe a blog reader can figure it out and let me know what it says.
Artist Hank Willis Thomas titled this one "Liberty." This is an arm with finger "spinning" a basketball, inspired by a 1986 photo of the Harlem Globetrotters.
Buildings were historic and interesting. This is a beaut!
We picked up our tickets and headed back to the hotel to refresh.
