We aren't arguing controversial points here. If you believe that my 13-month- old son consumes in the same manner as a 20-something professional, I don't know what to say.

They count exactly the same towards neighborhood density calculations, yet my son is highly unlikely to be seen visiting the local hookah bar at 4 AM anytime soon.
I can agree that it was purposefully glib and cartoonish, but not strawman.

What level of favored "urban" qualities a neighborhood possesses is separate discussion. I can understand that people have differing definitions, and stated as such in my first response to you. I don't hold the same notions of what consitutes an urban environment as you may, and that's ok. And the discussion morphed into one about the characteristics of urbanism in city neighborhoods; what amenties, demographics, etc.

Was trying to support that Milwaukee's densely-populated neighborhoods weren't all that "urban" because of their lack of those amenities available in commercial districts that young, affluent people frequent and due to their demographic/ethnic/architectural vernacular then? I don't know... that's what I've been trying to figure out from the beginning.

but seriously, if you wanna know what the pizza experience in milwaukee felt like during the nixon adminsitration, you gotta check this place out, they haven't changed a damn thing (other than upping their beer game a bit, but what old school place hasn't these days?).

Milwaukee has a great urban layout. If Chicago ever got too expensive to move to, this is the next best thing.

Ha! I didn't catch the "titally"... I'm not editing it, and I think I might start using it when the situation calls for it from now on.

I'm heading to Milwaukee for the first time this Spring... thanks, I'm titally checking Barbiere's out.

when in the spring?

if it's late spring, then i HIGHLY recommend renting a kayak and going for a paddle on the milwaukee river. it's one of the coolest ways to experience milwaukee (or really any city with a narrow urban canyon river system).

my wife and i came dangerously close to making such a move, but we ultimately decided to compromise on a couple things and stay put in chicago.

but milwaukee was really tempting for its "you can have it all" allure.

i'm hopelessly chicagoan.

to the bone.

Late April. Might be chilly or it could be perfect, but kayaking is right up my alley.

these guys haven't posted their 2018 schedule yet, but they might be open in late april (weather permitting).

https://milwaukeekayak.com/

but if they're open, do it! you won't regret it. the rivers of milwaukee are eminently kayakable and the city interacts with its waterways in a really intimate and urban way.

Is it worth a trip from Chicagoland?

And does it matter which of the two locations you go to?
