    Boutique Hotel with Youthful Zest


    The Aloft has a distinctively contemporary vibe that strikes you immediately upon entering the lobby, where the sounds of modern popular music are being played in the backdrop. The front desk is not ensconced in some elegant corner of the lobby, but is rather right up front, with youthful clerks ready to get you checked in. I checked in later in the afternoon on a Friday, and a DJ was mixing sounds in the lobby, as a young crowd listened appreciatively. Clearly, this ain't the Pfister, bud!

    The lobby is post-industrial, with acres of raw concrete, high ceilings with exposed ductwork, and contemporary "clubby" furniture.

    Conveniently located on the north edge of downtown - an easy walk to many popular restaurants and bars, too.

Travel Tips for Milwaukee

Why is Milwaukee famous for beer?

by Dabs

I'm embarrassed to admit that before one of the VT gang asked me why Milwaukee became the "brewing capital of the world", home to some of the largest brewers in the US such as Pabst, Schiltz, Miller and Blatz, that I really hadn't given it much thought. But I did come home and look it up now that my curiousity was piqued.

It didn't have to do with cost advantages for raw materials or labor

Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Veterans Park

by yooperprof

Veterans Park is a lovely gem on Milwaukee's waterfront, just to the north of the War Memorial and to the east of Lincoln Memorial Drive.

The Vietnam Veteran's Memorial was dedicated in 1991. The columns are made of Wausau red granite. Of the three columns, the first represents those killed in action, the second those who returned, and the third those who were MIA/POW.

Vocal Segregation at "Tenor High School"

by yooperprof

I'm not sure how I feel about the Roman Catholic Diocese of Milwaukee having a separate high school just for tenors. On the one hand, we all know that tenors are special people who require careful treatment. On the other hand, I've always felt that "mainstreaming" is a good idea for them, because the more time they spend in the company of "normal voices" the more likely it is that they will become well-adjusted and productive members of society.

I'm not sure where the "Alto High School" is, but the Tenor High School is next to the Cathedral of St. John, at 840 N. Jackson.

Oh, a drinking fountain

by blaird

In Milwaukee you will hear people ask, "where is the bubbler?", or something like that. Bubbler, for all non-native Milwaukeeans, is a drinking fountain or a water fountain. I have no idea the derivation of the name, but that is what they say.

Okay, I just looked it up, here is what Merrian Webster says, "Date: 1914
1 : a drinking fountain from which a stream of water bubbles upward"

"Visit the Milwaukee Zoo"

by tetonski1

The Milwaukee Zoo has more than 2500 different animals in wonderful authentic settings. Right now they have an exhibit about "Dogs", which explores the relationship between man and canine. They have lots of interesting exhibits and facts.

If you visit the zoo, you must be a kid again and ride the zoomobile for $1.50. Also, it's a great idea to bring a picnic lunch and blanket. Not only can you save money from over priced poor cafeteria food, but there are a lot of pretty spots to lay a blanket down and enjoy a nice lunch in the sunshine!

Admission is:

From April 1 - October 31, 2004
Adult: $9.00
Junior (3 to 12): $6.00
Child (2 and under): FREE
Senior Citizens (60 and over): $8.00
