This evening, I visited our newly redecorated catering / hospitality area tonight at the Riverside (our biggest venue) and must say - it's sleek, sophisticated and stylish. Felt more like an upscale restaurant than anything! I got to sample one of the desserts, which was some type of lemon creme confection.
Pardon the iPhone photo. That's some gorgeous Milwaukee skyline in the background. This is what the rock stars see when they dine at the table I was sitting at.
Earlier today, I started things off on the right foot with this lovely breakfast.
Plain organic Stonyfield Farms yogurt, one chopped plum, raspberries.
Whole wheat toast, topped with PB&Co honey peanut butter.
OJ in a favorite mug. This b-fast made me feel like a million bucks.
Check out that glorious pile 'o produce in the background. Zak went grocery shopping. I am a lucky lady.
The big activity for the afternoon was a live animal show with 'Jungle' Jack Hanna, at the Pabst! Zak's adorable niece and nephew had their first visit to the theater, and got to meet Jungle Jack himself. Guess who else got to finally meet him?
!!!!! This woman! Can you tell I was super excited?
Jack Hanna is one of my favorite human beings... he has educated so many thousands of people about wildlife conservation through his TV appearances and shows. His sense of humor is one of a kind, he's a gifted communicator as well. He's also quite the humanitarian.
It was a great time with Ben, Elise, and of course the grownups, Taylor and Jen. Hoping to arrange another outing soon.
Later, I enjoyed this super salad prepared by Chef Zak.
It had a little bit of everything, and on the side I made some Texas Toast.
I inhaled it :-) Fresh vegetables and fruit feel so different in my stomach than other foods. Back to that million dollar feeling! Good stuff.
It's now after 10PM and I am thinking of heading home. Sweet dreams, blog friends!
