proud they were to have come together to create a flavor that was unique
and special to them was

is a little gem in Wauwatosa. I love its eclectic vibe. In the
summertime, Hart Park in Wauwatosa is a very happening place. There’s a
playground for kids, live music at the amphitheater and tasty local food
trucks. It’s a great hot spot for families and pet-friendly too.
