Day 1: Friday, June 24th

After checking in at the hotel in Milwaukee, the Train headed for the parking lots outside of Miller Park. This is where tailgating would commence for many Twins fans that had made the trip to Milwaukee. The group spent time throwing footballs around, tossing a frisbee, and enjoying each other's company before the start of the game.

Following the tough defeat on Friday night, the Twins Train went downtown to explore some of the local establishments. We found a wide variety of pubs, bars, and dining establishments to entertain ourselves well into the evening. A fitting end to our first day in Milwaukee.
Day 2: Saturday, June 25thThe next day we were allowed to sleep in before we headed to a local restaurant for a patio lunch. Brewski's Sports Club was kind enough to put up with the antics of the members of Twins Train. On a beautiful summer day, we got to sit on the 3000 square foot patio area to soak in the sun. Everyone seemed to enjoy the wide variety of food options. There were some great sandwiches, burgers, salads, and pizza to fit every appetite.

My food selection for day two was a mega-nacho from one of their Mexican stands. I decided on chicken nachos with peppers, salsa, cheese, and sour cream. There was a lot of flavor but the $9.75 asking price was a little high. It was heaped very high and I was able to split the nachos with another person so that made the price a little easier to swallow.
The Twins did not perform up to par for Saturday night's game and we got sick of being in the splash zone for Bernie as he went down the water slide multiple times in the game. Following the game, we explored some different establishments in the downtown area of Milwaukee. There were sports bars, dance clubs, honky-tonks, and many other choices for the members of Twins Train. This offered another fun night on the town.
Overall, it was another great Twins Train experience. The other members of the convoy seemed to be having a great time throughout the trip. It was great to have 13 other NoDak natives along for the journey this time. It just would have been nice for the Twins to be more cooperative in the fun and excitement department.
