June 11: Milwaukee

1. Dodo: I love these restaurant names. I had been describing okonomi pancakes on the way there. Well, lo and behold! Okonomi pancakes.

2. South Side: Dinner and cheap champagne with friends and family at Grand Duke's Restaurant. Mmm, cepelinai!

3. Oasis: We didn't feel like heading to bed, so we headed to Milwaukee. Daiva was a much better negotiator, scoring us a $189 room for $109. Despite her highly effective skills, we decided to return to Chicago overnight, pausing at a rest stop over the freeway to dine on the world's hottest, freshest Filet-o-Fish and fries. We *will* return to Milwaukee!
