We never did DDR....
we should do that next time...


I was in Boston this past weekend and was introduced to a new kind of bowling, completely foreign to me. It's called candlepin bowling, and it's apparently more popular than regular bowling in the Boston area. (Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong... But a Boston-native friend of mine said that she's never actully been regular bowling, only candlepin bowling.)

The concept is the same, but the pins are really thin, and the balls are much smaller, about the size of a bocce ball. Also, the balls have no finger-holes in them, they're completely solid. I thought it would be an easy switch, but it was actually really hard to get used to.

Sorry, this has nothing to do with Milwaukee... but if you ever go to Boston, you should try it! :)


Kristin- thanks for telling us about your Boston bowling experience! I've never heard of candlepin bowling and I'd probably be pretty bad at it.

Anyway, don't hesitate to talk about non-Milwaukee related things. Actually, it's kind of neat to hear what's going on in other cities besides Milwaukee because it’s a good way to see how Milwaukee stacks up against other places.


I enjoy the landmark. they have a great variety of imports. I believe tuesday nights they have specials on imports.
