Easter Saturday in Milwaukee of a Lifetime 2010 A
Jelly Belly Factory Tour, Safe House, and Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Saturday I was picked up bright and early by ChrisS and we headed out on a road trip to Wisconsin. It was time for Easter Saturday in Milwaukee of a Lifetime 2010 A! We were going to check out the Jelly Belly Center Tour, watch a Brewers game at Miller Park, and grab dinner at Safe House restaurant.
Jelly Belly Center Tour
Our first stop in Wisconsin was Pleasant Prairie for the Jelly Belly Center Tour! We took a little tram ride around the “factory” and learned all about how Jelly Bellys were made!
Actually not all about…I think they cut the tour a little short. We bypassed a couple of TV screens. I’m pretty sure they were overly busy that day because they had the Easter Bunny there…
Afterwards we got free candy! And more free candy! And then discounted deformed candy!
And I met a giant Jelly Belly. My life is probably complete.

Brewers Game at Miller Park
After the Jelly Belly Factory, we took off for destination number 2: Miller Park!
We were taking in a Brewers pre-season game (with tickets behind home plate for only $10, why not?) I really like Miller Park. Why? They have a dome. And on a rainy chilly day like Saturday that dome made the game awesome.
I got a hot dog (of course) and cheese curds instead of my usual nachos. When in Wisconsin…
Someone asked a girl to prom on the big board…
But he didn’t leave a name. So what if the wrong girl saw it? Or what if she was there with two guys?
And sausages raced!
And we stretched!
And we sang about a barrel but there was no barrel 🙁
The game was actually pretty awesome because in the 9th inning the Brewers were down…but then they came back to win it! Although we were hoping for a tie.
Not that I really care, because I’m a White Sox fan. But, as Mat would put it: “I cheer for whoever I’m in the audience for.” Or, as a normal person would put it: “I cheer for the home team.”
Safe House Restaurant
And went into an importer/exporter business.
And were asked a password at the door of a tiny waiting room.
And when we didn’t know a password we had to dance like penguins before we could go in.
So we were finally let in and we sat down to eat and I had a burger with barbecue sauce and bacon and cheese.
And we walked around looking at all the spy stuff on the walls.
And when it was time to go we took a quarter into a little room and called a phone and were told a password to enter to leave.

And then we left. And we went back to the Land of Lincoln. And ate more Jelly Bellys.
