If you haven't heard, Milwaukee Food Tours has been hosting a citywide foodie scavenger hunt this week in celebration of their 5th anniversary and the finale is tomorrow at Milwaukee Cupcake Company. The first 250 people to stop in between noon and 2pm receive a free mini cupcake (codeword = buttercream).
Also, tomorrow is the drawing for a grand prize consisting of restaurant gift cards valued at over $650! According to a facebook update this morning, they've given away 12 of the 15 golden tickets for entry into the drawing, so it's not too late!
I received Golden Ticket # 5 and am looking forward to celebrating tomorrow and trying out Milwaukee Cupcake Company for the first time. The scavenger hunt is such a cool idea, and the golden tickets are such a great reminder of Willy Wonka and one of my favorite childhood books.
Chris and I have attended two tours in the past - the Third Ward Food Tour and the Photo Walk Tour, which were both great. Tonight, we're doing the Pizza Bus Tour, which I won tickets for by submitting a photo of my mom in a Mother's Day contest.
Here's the photo and the caption I wrote - "I took this photo of my mom last week and it proves why she needs to attend a Milwaukee Food Tour. Her idea of fine dining is Hometown Buffet!"
If you're not familiar, Hometown Buffet is the re-branded name for remodeled Old Country Buffets, or OCB as my husband calls it. This restaurant is a favorite of my parents and Chris, and one of my least favorites. I often get out voted when the four of us decide where to dine :(
This morning I told my mom that I won tickets in a contest using a photo of her, and her immediate reply was "shouldn't the tickets be mine then?" So I have promised to take her on a Milwaukee Food Tour this summer instead. I think she would love the Wauwatosa Tour and it's definitely one of my favorite areas to dine, so I'm looking forward to doing that tour with her.
