I must say, while I'm at it, that the artistic atmosphere of The Art Bar is not the only art-friendly place in Milwaukee. Rather, it is reflective of what you will find in a number of eating and drinking establishments in this part of town. Just today, in fact, on our way back from a trip to the Central Library downtown, Ruth and I stopped at one of my favorite coffeehouses, Brewed Cafe, on Brady Street. You simply must see the diverse art that fills the walls, and even the ceiling of one of the rooms, at Brewed. It's a great place to get fueled up, have a snack, get a little reading or writing in, or converse with friends.
We all live busy lives, but sometimes one must stop and smell the coffee.
