Sil’s Drive-Thru was one of my favorite places in Milwaukee, and I am sad to say that today was its last day open. It is a sad day to know that there will be no more delicious doughnuts, bagels or wasted weiners in my life. It it located on the corner of North Avenue and Oakland, just a few steps away from our last apartment, two houses in from what used to be the block where the Pizza Man, Cush and Grecian Delight once were until a terrible fire took out the whole block. I feel like this intersection in particular has been hit with some crazy disasters lately, shortly after the block burnt down in that terrible fire, Wisconsin was hit hard with some flooding and a massive sinkhole collapsed in the middle of that intersection and with it swallowed up an SUV, luckily everyone got out. I am not saying that Sil’s Drive Thru closing is a disaster, it just is another reason that this intersection is cursed (I am glad we moved when we did). I am sad that Sil’d Drive Thru will not be open anymore, it will be missed.
RIP Sil’s Drive Thru 🙁
