Athleta opening

Yesterday was the grand opening of the Milwaukee Athleta Store at Bayshore Mall, I had received an email a few weeks ago about a special launch party the night before the store opened for business, I RSVP’d not sure if I would go or not, it was on a Tuesday and depending if I was feeling like driving 45min to the store would be a day of decision.

Invite to the opening!

Athleta is a store that I have been to once in Boulder Colorado, I get their catalogs but I have never bought anything because I like to try stuff on first, so I was really excited for the first Wisconsin store to open.  That decision to go was made way easier when I was at the Kenosha Running Club Picnic talking to some of the other ladies, we ended up planning a carpool to shop and be girly!  Which was a lot of fun, the event was PACKED! And the store was HOT! But we shopped, waited in line forever to try stuff on, then all 5 of us shared the large dressing room and helped each other decide what to buy.  Then we stood in the long line to check out, I did think about not buying anything, but after standing in line so so long, I was committed.

The ladies before our shopping extravaganza!

The food, so so good.  They had appetizers from a restaurant in the mall, Devon Seafood and Steak.  I think I ate an entire plate of the shrimp skewers, they were so good!  They were also serving bruschetta, crab spring rolls and key lime pie tarts.  We were in line so long that they kept coming by and we kept eating!

The shrimp was so so good!
