Lemon Lounge (2)

[Last winter/spring I went here a lot, basically too much. I’ve made one visit in the past 6 months. I still like it, but it’s better with company. More later.]

Oh lemon lounge.  What a cozy little place. I first bumped into you when I went to check out Exotic Milwaukee and it wasn’t quite “open” yet so I got a drink next door and found this wonderful establishment.

The beers were not the reason I went.  It was Michael and Clair that listened to my sob stories, my excitements, my  letdowns, my drunken tirades, my sob stories, repeat. The stories told, the music shared, the Forrest Gump-esque lives if the sequel spanned recent decades came alive there.

I made an intimate spot into a private watering hole for myself and wanted to bring something more intimate back to it.  Once I did a couple times, it wasn’t mine anymore.  The place is buried in my heart with the life I lived in those cold months of 2009. When I resurrect in 2010 I hope I can share stories with the owner, a SAG for you film buffs, the glory of those months, but with the right company; in the love nest, with wine. 🙂
