Doors Open Milwaukee Weekend – A Honeypie Breakfast

I’m so far behind in blogging. Since I took my current role back in February, I haven’t been able to make time to enjoy writing new posts. I have one from a conference in Miami in March to write. I have others from various travel, including Louisville, and I someday hope to get to them!

However, my brother, Adam, is visiting this weekend, as he does every year for Doors Open Milwaukee (#DOMKE) weekend. DOMKE is the perfect mash-up for Adam’s interests in architecture and photography. It also provides me a bit of downtime to actually sit and write!

We started our weekend at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater seeing “In the Heights”, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda back in 2005. It’s a high-energy musical with great vocals, amazing dancing, and a great story line. We then attended an after-party with music and interactions with cast members. One of my friends and I were absolutely fascinated by a particular member of the ensemble (shown here) – those moves she has – WOW!

After that late, fun night along with Mike (pictured above), his wife Christy, and our friend Chuck (who gave us a tour of the newly renovated Stackner Cabaret Theater), Adam and I decided to start #DOMKE in Cudahy, and therefore have breakfast in Bay View. So, Honeypie it was!

I’ve been there once before, with Sweet Phi, and really should visit more often! I couldn’t decide amongst three options on the menu:

BREAKFAST CASSEROLE biscuit, roasted potatoes, mushrooms, sausage gravy, cheddar cheese, bacon, sunny egg $13

BREAKFAST RISOTTO pork belly, Fernwood kale, cranberry beans, radicchio, herb butter, poached egg, parmesan $14

SHRIMP & GRITS bacon, andouille, roasted pepper, tomato, poached egg, gremolata $16

Jordan, our server, was “on it”. She chose the Shrimp & Grits which were full of flavor (and full in the bowl!). She checked in several times, made sure we were all set with beverages, to-go boxes, and even “reserved” the last piece of chocolate fudge bourbon pie for me to take home. Now, I have shrimp & grits for another meal as well as a slice of Honeypie’s famous pie. (PS: Jordan’s choice may or may not have been influenced by my sporting my Clemson Tiger gear)

After breakfast, we were off to see some of the interesting, and beautiful sites in my dear Milwaukee. I know other cities have “Doors Open” weekends. Have you taken part? What are your favorite venues?

Cheers!
