They may look grey, but they’re really matte silver. I say that because my wife and I picked these up at the Milwaukee hotel where we spent a getaway weekend to celebrate our 25th anniversary.
The luxury Pfister Hotel is in Milwaukee’s East Town section, and we ventured out into the nearby Historic Third Ward and Westown neighborhoods, as well. While we were waiting for our brunch table at Café Benelux, groups of red-clad bicyclists — participants from that day’s Santa Cycle Rampage — were seen across the street. Soon some of them would be one table away from us in the restaurant.
This was the first time we’d been away from our high-schoolers for as long as we were, and we greatly enjoyed the hotel and the city. Before heading home, we headed north along Lake Michigan to stop by North Point Lighthouse, snap a couple pictures and enjoy a stroll.
Twenty-five years. It’s a good start.
