Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo have us “All Fired Up” for their visit to Milwaukee on August 5th at The Riverside Theater. So, to celebrate the four-time Grammy winner’s visit to the Cream City, we put together a perfect itinerary sure to "treat [you] right." Warning: the following itinerary may make you feel “Invincible.”
Breakfast - Greet the day at Fuel Café! Located in the Walker’s Point neighborhood, this restaurant is the perfect spot to fuel up for the day ahead with breakfast, coffee, or something…a little stronger like the Coffeetail or Maple Brew cocktails.
Harley-Davidson Museum - Keep the good times rolling at the world’s only Harley-Davidson Museum. Explore Harley-Davidson’s 119-year history including interactive exhibits from the oldest known Harley, Serial Number One, to the reimagined Experience Gallery that spotlights the Harley-Davidson lifestyle. Nothing like the rev of a motorcycle to give you the “Outlaw Blues.”
Lunch - Dine along the Milwaukee River at Blue Bat Kitchen and Tequilaria. Featuring dishes inspired by the flavors of street food from around the world, the restaurant lays claim as Milwaukee’s first tequilaria, offering over 160 tequilas. Savor unique flavor parings such as churro pancakes, poutine with cheese curds, and more!
Milwaukee Boat Line - See the city “Shine” from Lake Michigan on a Milwaukee Boat Line tour. Cruise along the Milwaukee River immersed in Cream City brick and cityscape as the tour’s guide gives you a brief history of the Brew City. Be sure to have your camera ready for the glimmering sights of the city’s skyline from the water as the boat heads out into the breakwater and along Lake Michigan’s stunning shores.
Dinner - Enjoy all the ambiance of a traditional Wisconsin supper club in a new, modern way. Filled with unique takes on classic Wisconsin faire, Buckatabon offers a Central Waters Mudpuppy Porter beer-battered fish fry, delicious prime rib, and more all in a warm, inviting atmosphere. Be sure to sign up for the Milwaukee Cheese Curd Pass before you go to get 50% off a half pound of curds.
Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo - “You Better Run!” ...or at least, “Don’t Walk Away,” from this show! Grab your seats and rock out as Pat and Neil take the stage to the roar of The Riverside Theater’s crowd. Playing selections of Benatar’s 19 Top 40 singles, two RIAA-certified multi-platinum albums, and five RIAA-certified platinum albums, this is sure to be a concert to remember!
Central Standard Crafthouse & Kitchen - After the concert, under the “Shadows of Night,” head over to Central Standard Crafthouse & Kitchen to relive your favorite highlights of the evening, enjoy a nightcap of expertly crafted local spirits, and revel in the feeling that, “In a Crazy World Like This,” “We Belong” in Milwaukee. Try not to stay out too late though to avoid waking up with “Bloodshot Eyes.”
