A Birthday Party for the Young Foodie in your Life

Do you have a young foodie in your life? Through the years, we've received many requests to offer a birthday party option for children. We're thrilled to share that we recently had an opportunity to test the concept with an 11-year old foodie birthday party! We hosted Nicholas and his friends on our inaugural birthday tour. Afterwards, mom to the birthday boy shared with us, "Nicholas said it was the best birthday party ever, the parents were impressed and some told me the kids were talking about it all the way home."

During the 2.5 hour birthday adventure, we hosted a scavenger hunt through the Historic Third Ward, stopped along the way to make individual gourmet pizzas for attendees, played some ping pong and enjoy soda, and sung Happy Birthday over a cupcake dessert!

Interested in scheduling a similar birthday party for a child or grandchild?  Email us at theresa@milwaukeefoodtours.com for more details.

As a reminder, we host many adult birthday parties too! Often times guests will pick a date and time to attend a public tour from our calendar for their celebration, or you may schedule a private outing for just their friends and family.

Our personal recommendation for which tour to pick for your celebration? We've noticed that our Pizza Bus as well as our new Pre-Prohibition Historic Bar Tour are hot sellers for birthday outings, and they are our winter favorites too!

Delicious Bachelorette Options in Milwaukee

When choosing what to do for your bachelorette party, there are a lot of great choices. But, on one beautiful recent Milwaukee summer night, two separate bachelorette parties realized that a Milwaukee Food Tours outing was the best way to start the night. While the brides and bridal parties were very different, they both were able to share a fantastic night with their girlfriends.

One bride, Katie from Port Washington, was getting excited for her impending nuptials. She was following in the footsteps of her parents and in-laws by continuing a family tradition with a wedding planned for the first weekend in June. Her soon-to-be sister-in-law had attended the Brady Street tour and thought a food touIMG950544r would be a fun way to surprise the bride-to-be, who only knew that she should wear comfortable shoes. Since the group had chosen the Third Ward dinner tour to begin their night, the tour concluded right in the heart of the Third Ward so that they could continue on to The Wicked Hop for drinks and conversation.

Mary was celebrating with a group of girlfriends 10 days before her elopement recently as well. Her maid-of-honor said, “I was looking for an alternative to the bar scene for a bachelorette party that I was hosting. I came across a food tour link and it ended up being the best thing that we did that night. We learned about this awesome city that we live in and went to restaurants that we had never been to before. We left with a full stomach and a want for more....so I for sure will be booking another tour!”

But, these bachelorettes aren’t alone. Milwaukee Food Tours is becoming a destination for more and more bachelorette parties and showers. Popular Milwaukee blogs like Wed in Milwaukee and Married in Milwaukee are writing stories on bachelorette parties that have attended the Milwaukee Food Tours over the past few months.

All of these exciting bachelorette festivities have gotten us thinking, so we give to you... the top five reasons why an outing with Milwaukee Food Tours is the best way to spend your bachelorette party:

1. Perfect for a multi-generational outing with family before continuing on in the night for drinks and dancing. You won’t be embarrassed taking grandma to any of the locations!

2. The night is an all-inclusive experience, so no hidden costs once the night begins (unless of course you decide to go back for that great pair of shoes you saw while window shopping along the way)

3. If you choose to bring your friends on a public tour, you'll make new friends. Who knows, maybe you'll have a couple extra seats and invite them to the wedding!  (Private tours are available as well for bachelorette parties, at no additional cost.)

4. Now you will have a list of great restaurants in Milwaukee to take the in-laws to when they come to town- you’ve got to show off a little, am I right?

5. It's fun!!!!! And isn’t that what your bachelorette party or bridal shower is supposed to be?
