Botanicals & Bloodies - Waitlist Only
Wednesday, March 13
Designed by Milwaukee architect, Donald L. Grieb, and dedicated in 1965 by Lady Bird Johnson, the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory is most commonly and affectionately known as ‘The Domes.’
The original conservatory at Mitchell Park was opened in 1899 and closed in the mid 1950s due to decline in both the structure and number of visitors. A competition was held to find a new design for the conservatory and Grieb’s beehive-shaped domes became the now iconic landmark in Milwaukee. Each dome features a different botanical theme - tropical, floral, and desert - with the floral dome used to feature different exhibits throughout the year. During March, the winter show features a miniature train display that winds its way on tracks throughout the dome. There will be a guided tour plus time on your own for botanical exploration.
After our visit to Mitchell Park Domes, we’ll head over to Sobelman’s Pub & Grill on St. Paul Avenue. Sobelman’s is housed in one of the original Schlitz taverns and known for their burgers and their outrageous Bloody Marys. Enjoy a Bloody Mary with beer chaser or Virgin Mary with root beer chaser with your lunch. Meal choices are The Loser Burger topped with Colby-jack cheese, smoked bacon, and caramelized onions or Chicken Wrap featuring grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato, red onion, cheddar cheese, and ranch sauce or Wisconsin Fish Fry. Cash bar available.
Our final stop for the day will be the Milwaukee Public Market to browse among the almost twenty different vendors selling prepared foods, bakery, sweets, spices, and fresh seafood.
Good Life Club will host a gathering at Brooklife Church in Mukwonago on the second Tuesday of every other month from 10:00AM - 11:30AM. Tuesday Talks will bring in a speaker - or two - to present various topics of interest. Or, we may just have a fun activity. The talks will be free of charge and open to members and their guests. Registration is necessary, however, due to space availability.
