Milwaukee Winter Hot Chocolate Hop

By Eva Schons Rodrigues

With the imminent arrival of winter, we are all looking for ways to stay warm… and still get a break from campus for a little while. Although the cold might be bitter, a warm and sweet hot chocolate can serve as a delicious consolation for the weather. This winter, take the time to visit these places and treat yourself to a warm drink. Forget Starbucks! This winter you have a lot more places to visit, and so many different drinks to try.
