As we speak, Andrew Zimmern -- four-time James Beard-award-winner, host of Travel Channel’s "Bizarre Foods" franchise, "Andrew Zimmern’s Driven by Food," "The Zimmern List" and Food Network’s "Big Food Truck Tip" – is at Lakefront Brewery, 1872 N. Commerce St., enjoying a special Wednesday night fish fry.

The experience – which features a fish fry, music from the Brewhaus Polka Kings, and undoubtedly some Lakefront brews – will comprise at least a portion of content for an episode in an upcoming television series.

But Zimmern’s been busy since arriving in Milwaukee yesterday. In fact, if social media is any indication, he’s been loading up on a variety of fun things in the Cream City. 

Here’s where he’s been.

On the lake

That's a pretty nice view of the city, if we do say so ourselves.

Loving the food at Damascus Gate

I'm personally so very pleased he found one of the city's true gems.

Making the rounds at the Milwaukee Public Market

Earlier today, he also spent some time at the Milwaukee Public Market where he is said to have enjoyed a cortado from Anodyne Coffee Roasters, was spied at the ordering counter of Thainamite and made a stop at the West Allis Cheese & Sausage Shoppe.
