📍Il Bar Coffeehouse & Bistro, Kimberly ☕️

If you are looking for the perfect way to enjoy some brunch with friends, try new types of coffee drinks, or even a glass of wine and charcuterie on the weekends - you have got to check out the new bistro on the block, il Bar. Known to “awaken your international senses”, il Bar provides dishes and drinks that are both familiar but also that keep things exciting and new. They also feature tasty homemade pastries and dishes with fresh ingredients. 🥐

One of their newest additions to their menu is their coffee flights! You can taste and try four different coffees that are selected by their baristas, to get a little taste of it all. Pair with some sunny side up eggs, and your day is sure to be bright. Have you visited il Bar yet?! 😋

Wine Down, Wisconsin! 🥂
Today we're visiting a unique and local wine bar that you'll find yourself wanting to visit periodically in Neenah - Xe 54: a Wine & Cocktail Lounge.

A funky and fresh lounge that features around 15 reds and 15 whites, sparkling wines, port wines, cocktails, beer, and more. They even offer eight of their wines on tap for that perfect and crisp first sip. Whether you choose to enjoy your wine indoors while sitting on one of the groovy purple couches, or outdoors on their quaint patio or dog-friendly terrace - you are sure to be impressed by the vibes Xe54 gives off.

Accompany your wine with a BYO cheese board or ask some questions from their wine guru, Candice, while you're there to get the full experience. They offer flights and samples if you're the indecisive type, and their menu is organized to help you find the perfect wine you're looking for. If you haven't yet made a trip out to check out Xe, summer is a great time to do so! They offer live music most weekends, and throughout the week on their patio as well. 🧀🍎🍯

What's your favorite thing about Xe54? Cheers! 🍷

In the spirit of summer, we’re featuring a food almost no one can deny… ice cream. More specifically, ice cream from Scoops Ice Cream House in Chilton. 🍦

Scoops Ice Cream House features high quality, premium hard ice cream handcrafted in small batches. Featuring 24 unique flavors with their “Sweet 16” that stays at Scoops year round, with the rest of their flavors being seasonal delights. Scoops also features homemade ice cream cakes, homemade bubble waffle cones, grilled cheese sandwiches, varying soups, ice cream pints and half gallons of ice cream! The perfect place to take a visit on a hot summer day, or on a chilly winter afternoon - after all, ice cream really never gets old. 😉

Featured below is their large and beautiful banana split. The classic banana split recipe made with chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream tucked in between a split ( ) banana. Topped with caramel, strawberry, chocolate, and pineapple topping with nuts and a maraschino cherry on top. Don’t forget the dollop of whipped cream!

Have you visited Scoops before? What’s your ice cream go-to?

The Story of the Craft Music Showcase at Paperfest 2021

This truly took a village. This Local Showcase episode goes through the history of Paperfest, you get to know the Downtown Appleton breweries, and it really tells the story of the Venture Wisconsin stage at Paperfest this weekend.

We've had such a blast creating the Paperfest Craft Music Showcase, it took over 10 groups of people as sponsors and donors to make it happen. 12 Local music acts, 4-5 comedians, and more to make it possible!

Today marks the start of Paperfest 2021 - Combined Locks Centennial Celebration and the festival goes through Sunday. A great place for kids, live music, food trucks, and fun. Our stage has entertainment Thursday through Saturday. There's a parade on Sunday to celebrate Combined Locks Centennial.

Who would you bring down to Memorial Park in Combined Locks to enjoy Paperfest with?

Have you ventured here?!
📍 Bubblelicious, Appleton 🧋

Bubblelicious is a boba, milk, and fruit tea business. This location is in the Fox River Mall in Appleton, but they have other locations throughout Wisconsin as well! With many different options to choose from, Bubblelicious provides a delicious new choice every single time. 🤩

Started by two girls in Milwaukee who shared the same passion for Boba tea, but couldn’t find anything close to the authentic and tasty boba they had in Asia. After one of their dinner dates back in 2016, they had decided to start their journey to Bubblelicious for all the others in the area who were constantly craving boba as much as they were. Eventually things grew, more locations were added, and now they’ve found their way to the Northeast Wisconsin area. Bubblelicious Milk Tea & Fruit Tea has got something great going on - and you’ve gotta try it the next time you see them!

What’s the best thing you’ve tried from Bubblelicious?! 💛

This Monday we’re craving something sweet… but also something salty! So today we’re talking about The Sweet and Salty Pig in Fond du Lac for Monday Munchies! 😋

The restaurant was created out of the owners love for the two flavor profiles of both sweet and salty. They “enjoy experimenting with the savory flavor of bacon in dishes where you may not expect them.” With many of their dishes and baked goods being made from scratch, their menu is filled with items for you to indulge in both smell and flavor wise. With an environment that feels warm and welcoming, and a staff that feels like friends, you’ll always feel comfortable while dining at Sweet and Salty Pig. 🥓

Featured below is their brisket grilled cheese sandwich made with slow roasted beef brisket, smoked gouda, bourbon bacon jam, and sautéed mushrooms on toasted brioche bread. Served with a side of their crispy tots - to make the perfect meal for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! 🧀🥪

What’s your favorite item to order off of the menu at Sweet and Salty Pig?! 😊

Happy Monday, Wisconsin! Today for Monday Munchies we have an Oshkosh fan-favorite supper club - The Roxy Supper Club. 🥃

Every city needs a staple supper club, and in Oshkosh it's the Roxy. Whether you're a regular or enjoying The Roxy for the first time, the staff will always treat you as though you're part of the family. Owned by the Wolf family since 1988, their menu is designed to have something for everyone. All the way from chicken to steaks to pastas - you name it, you can probably find it on their menu! 😁

Pictured below is their Chef Salad: fresh garden salad topped with ham, turkey, swiss and cheddar cheeses and garnishes, served with your choice of dressing. Not only is this a fantastic mixture of flavors and also a low-calorie option, but it's also a gluten free option (of many) throughout their menu! 😋🥗

If you love to visit places that make you feel like family, while also treating yourself to a delicious night out - The Roxy is THE place to go! What's your favorite thing to order from The Roxy? ❤️

Why are there goats at 1000 Islands?

There's goats at 1000 Islands Environmental Center in Kaukauna! They're there for a good reason. Check it out.

1. They are controlling an invasive species called buckthorn.
2. They're opening sunlight for local plants on the forest floor.
3. Their waste is contributing to regenerating healthier soils.

Have you visited the goats yet?

I found it.
This dog has been missing since 1-16-2019! She is likely to be living with a different person/family. Her owners are heart-broken. Please be on the lookout and report any sightings to the number on the flyer. There is a reward for his safe return. I’m a volunteer with a non-profit group, The Retrievers, who assists in locating missing dogs. Please post and share with your friends! Thank you!
