Every year, from August 26 until Labor Day, hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans gather for the State Fair. I’m not sure if other states share this quality, but at least here in Minnesota, the fair is a big deal. Like…a really big deal. I guess when you deep fry everything, everyone will come. Hmm…deep fried Check Your Six Spring 11′?
Yesterday, the one and only Lance Armstrong was here in Madison for an event called Ride The Drive. What a city to pick for a cycling event, literally one of the most biker-friendly cities in the entire country! A day of festivities and beautiful weather made this day one of the best caps on summer one could ask for.
Yesterday I made the quick drive up to Milwaukee, well…more due east I guess…I learned that driving and taking pictures is fun, gets a lot of great looks from other drivers, and is most successfully pulled off going above 65 mph. Drunk. Just kidding, I was sober. Unless several coffees results in some sort of a caffeine intoxication.
I stopped off first at a skate shop called Sky High, the newest edition to our skate shop department.
Inside the shop is a great selection of shoes, decks, shirts, and jackets. Pretty much anything and everything you’re going to need! Big ups to Aaron for stocking our Fall / Winter Collection, make sure if you’re in the Milwaukee area to stop through and show support! Don’t be loko, shop local!
I then hopped on the road and made my way across town to make another visit. Downtown Milwaukee is really beautiful, it seems to be a perfect blend between historical and modernized buildings.
After some fun picture snapping, I met with our newest streetwear retailer, Flow, and the owner, PJ. Another great shop, stocking everything from 10 Deep to Crooks N Castles and a perfect location right downtown. Until next time Milwaukee, take care, and as always…check your six!
