The 2017 edition of the 24 Hour Project was the first time I have participated so I was a bit unsure what to expect. I took the afternoon off from work on Friday with hopes of getting a few hours of sleep. I did lay down for a bit and got some rest but sleep was elusive as the excitement of the pending 24 hours was too much to overcome. What this meant was that I was about to be up for 42 hours before falling asleep early Sunday.
I met up with my friend Jake at 11:30 Friday night and we drove into Milwaukee. Our planned first stop was the area around Oakland and North. I posted my first photo of the night in Von Trier at 12:13am and enjoyed a tasty Founders Breakfast Stout. Second shot of the night happened just outside Von Trier as we left at 1:03am. From there we took some photos around the donut shop on the corner of North and Oakland and then had a drink at the Eastsider.
Bars in Wisconsin close at 2am so we wandered the area a bit but quickly decided to find people at Ma Fischer’s Diner. This was my third photo, outside the restaurant at 2:31am, and my fourth inside at 3:29am.
