If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that one of my favorite places in Third Ward is The Kimpton Journeyman Hotel (as seen here, here, here and here). Not only is it a beautiful hotel, but Tre Rivali was a welcome addition to the restaurant scene in Milwaukee, and the Outsider has the most incredible rooftop bar with great views of the city.
I was so excited to hear about their floral pop-up shop with Milwaukee’s Belle Fiori, and I had the chance to visit on Saturday. Their offerings ranged from classic red roses to fragrant, fun bouquets. I took the opportunity to get dressed up in what would be a perfect look for tomorrow if you’re going out with a significant other or your girlfriends. To be honest, Bill and I keep it pretty casual, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to put together a white and pink look this year.
If you missed the pop-up this weekend, you’re in luck because tomorrow, Tuesday, February 14 from 12 p.m.-6p.m., they’re hosting the pop-up again! You can stop by the lobby to purchase a variety of different arrangements, and guests even have the option to order flowers to enjoy in their rooms.
And, if you’re looking for a last minute place to grab a drink, stop by the Outsider and try their Pillow Talk cocktail that they crafted for Valentine’s Day. If you’re not able to make it this week but still want to visit soon, I highly recommend starting with a C.L.C and Creamy Balsamic Onion Dip. If you’re with a larger group, my friends and I also love to split the Crispy Pork Belly pizza.
