5th Anniversary Dinner at Honeypie in Bay View

Craig and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on Friday! I can't believe how quickly time has flown by. It seriously feels like we we just got married last year or something. 

He was super hungry on Thursday night, so we opted to go out to eat then to celebrate!

I wanted to try Honeypie in Bay View and he found something on the menu he liked ahead of time (he's a bit of a picky eater compared to me). Honeypie was voted as one of the top 30 restaurants in Milwaukee in 2013. 

We took a selfie, complete with a Trivial Pursuit card. 

I come from a family who loves Trivial Pursuit and my siblings and I have a lot of useless facts in our heads. Craig's family is the exact opposite, so he doesn't really love the game. He quizzed me a bit and then we chatted the rest of the time.

I enjoyed a Green River Razer cocktail. It had Green River soda, a splash of lemon and Ginger Brandy. It was tasty!

Craig looked at the menu online before we arrived at the restaurant and had his heart set on a Spicy Chicken sandwich, but it wasn't listed on the menu in-person. He was kind of disappointed and opted for a "Klug" sandwich with Field Roast (veggie protein), jalapeƱos, etc. I had the Veggie Grinder.

Both of us loved our sandwiches. In fact, while eating his leftovers at work the next day, Craig e-mailed me with the subject line "god I love my sandwich." I teased back, "what about god, I love my wife of five years?"

Naturally, we had to end our meal with pie! I had the pistachio, which I had only tried a bit of before thanks to Karis. Craig had the Black Bottom Banana Cream. Both were indulgent and delicious. We had to take the leftovers home too because we were stuffed. 

We walked off dinner and dessert by strolling down Kinnickinnic Avenue after. I liked this sign outside of a very vintage looking gym. Great way to sell personal training, huh!?

We also found a really weird bookstore, where the owner seemed to live out of the middle of the store floor. He had couches, medicine, a TV, etc. setup right in the middle. Oh Bay View, you're so quirky. 

What a fun night celebrating our wedding anniversary! 


  1. I love Honeypie! We've been to brunch there once and to their sister restaurant Comet Cafe for dinner. Loved them both. Happy Anniversary!

  2. I know what you mean about time flying by. We'll celebrate 9 years in October. Happy to hear you had a great dinner at Honeypie!
