What’s happening Milwaukee?! Anyone else ready for this weather to change into beach worthy weather?? I know we are!! While we enjoy our late spring here are some things happening around town!!
Eric’s Music Mania
So this weekend a band is playing that I’m very familiar with. I was very hesitant at first when my then girlfriend and now wife introduced me to them. They are the Indigo Girls and if you haven’t heard of them or seen them live you should no matter if you are guy or girl.
Lyrically they have some amazing songs and they truly know how to play to a crowd. If my wife when we were in college didn’t tell me to just listen, I never would have realized the talent and incredibly powerful music the Indigo Girls produce. So thank you my wife!!!! So guys if you are out there and someone ask you to go with them…go you won’t be disappointed! They are at the Marcus Amphitheater on Saturday at 10:30pm on Saturday.
Everybody get FOOTLOOSE..FOOTLOOSE!! Another concert taking place is Kenny Loggins another one I have seen and he is a ton of FUN to see!! 8pm at the Northern Lights Theater on Friday..Danger Zone another classic featured in Top Gun. He plays the classics and still can fire up a crowd!
Music lovers get out there this weekend and if you have some music you would like to share or concerts that are great let us know!!

Jennie’s Unique to Milwaukee
Milwaukee Gallery Nights
Although amazing artwork isn’t unique to Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Art Dealers Association’s Gallery night adds a bit of spunk and beauty to downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. Area restaurants, bars, salons, galleries, and stores create spaces for local artists to display and market their art. These pieces range from abstract sculptures to small charcoal drawings to blown glass pieces. Not only do these local businesses pledge their support to the artists but also to the patrons and Milwaukeeans who come in droves to support this event. Restaurants and bars usually have specials and often complimentary beverages to Gallery Night goers.
Gallery Night is a unique experience for art lovers and community members who merely enjoy experiencing a small piece of what makes Milwaukee one of the Midwest’s best cities. So make plans to attend the next Gallery Night which will be in Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward on July 26th & 27th so mark your calendars and get ready to be blown away by Milwaukee’s art scene!

is coming your way!
You already know that Bunny Gumbo fills the stage with a ton of talent. But did you know that talent can sing? We’ve had plays with songs in the past, but this is the first Combat in which half of the shows will be musicals. Our superb cast of Milwaukee talent will create 16 brand new shows in just 48 hours.

Lori’s Adrenaline Junkies: BEWARE!!
I am not sure how much of an adrenaline rush it is, but what of the coolest things I have ever done was take a Hot Air Balloon ride. You arrive early in the morning, wind conditions have to be just right, and dress about 20 degrees cooler than the outside temperature. When the balloon fires up and starts to fill with air, your excitement will mount. Then UP, UP AND AWAY you will go! The most relaxing and beautiful ride of a lifetime.
In the Milwaukee area, Milwaukee Balloon Rides offers a full spectrum of different Hot Air Balloon Ride Packages. Going on a shared balloon is a less expensive way to experience the joy of balloon flight. Most hot air balloon baskets will hold 2-8 passengers during a single ride. In a shared ride, you will basically share the ride with other passengers if your group doesn’t fill a basket.
In case a shared basket is not for you….
Private tours and balloon rides are available at a slightly higher cost. Rather than sharing the basket with others, the pilot will reserve the whole basket for yourself and that special someone. It’s hard to compare any Milwaukee Balloon Ride to another, but an exclusive basket makes your balloon ride that much better. Spend up to 1 hour floating over Milwaukee in a private hot air balloon made for two. Either way, call today to book – both experiences will last a lifetime!
Milwaukee Balloon Rides can be reached at 1-877-822-7484

Toni’s Bon Appetit
Oooooo lala!! Maurice…THE BAGETTE HURRY UP to Le Reve (www.lerevecafe.com) in the adorable downtown Tosa. Whether you are taking a mid day shopping break, or having a nice intimate dinner Le Reve is a must do for all you food lovers. Their fabulous appetizers (I highly recommend the Crostini de Brie) their lovely meat and cheese plates, their rich and flavorful entrée’s and their lovely selection of wine make this a true Milwaukee gem. If you are like me, and have a sweet AND savory tooth, then this is the place for you. Their bakery case is full of decadent goodness that isn’t too be skipped. Open Mon-Saturday, closed on Sunday check out Le Reve for breakfast lunch or dinner. Or stop in to rest your feet, sip a glass of wine, and read a good book…and imagine you are sitting in café on a rainy day Paris. The atmosphere with the close tables, in a narrow room, and dim lighting with crisp clean décor it is truly transporting. So enjoy! And Bon Appetit!
Kristin’s Run/Walking in a Wisco Wonderland:
If you consider yourself a “Milwaukee-an,” someone that enjoys fun and an opportunity to socialize, as well as someone that wants to get in shape without working TOO hard, then this is YOUR week. While this week is no different than any other week in terms of opportunities to find a local stroll or jog through the area neighborhoods, there is one event for those of you that really are ultimately looking for fun.
I’m someone that enjoys physical activity of any kind, but prefer the physical activity that doesn’t require me to work too hard. More than this though, I really enjoy a good beer. Why not combine the two? After all, we are in Milwaukee, right? Locust Street Days is celebrating its 37th year and River West Beer Run or Walk (maybe crawl) on Sunday, June 9th at 11:30AM. This is a 1.8 mile run with 4 beer stops. With sponsors like Lakefront Brewery and Miller, you will not be disappointed with the selection. I’m personally hoping for Lakefront Brewery’s Riverwest Stein, an Amber Lager, named after the hardworking neighborhood where Lakefront Brewery was founded.
So who’s in with me? While I’m willing to do it alone, I’m confident that I will not be alone. With a minimal entrance fee for late registration of $20 I’m certain that the 900 runner max will be met. Get to the intersection of Booth and Locust by 10:00AM if you haven’t already registered to ensure your spot on the beer, I mean, running route.
