- Dinner @ El Fuego
Its Monday Fun Day in Milwaukee... Come have food and merriment with us on the back patio on El Fuego. According to the website, "Milwaukee's authentic Mexican cuisine and some of the finest margaritas in the land!" El Fuego has food for meat-a-tarians, vegetarians, gluten free, and Ryan. They have sun, water, and fajitas, like a beach in Florida. They also promised separate checks. If this is not alluring enough for a Monday evening, we can maybe throw in a mariachi band...
