Drinking everyday
It's shamed into secrecy, but everyday drinking is a reality for many in Wisconsin. Let's talk about this.
St. Michael's convent
You can see the soaring St. Michael's Catholic Church steeple - the second-tallest in town - from everywhere in its West Side neighborhood. But get close and at least as striking as the church is the 1885 former convent at 2414 W. Vliet St., now home to Acts Housing.
A Taste of Italy
Each April, at the Italian Community Center, 631 E. Chicago St., A Taste of Italy draws Milwaukee in to sample tasty Italian-American treats. This year's 25th annual event takes place Sunday, May 31 from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Admission is free.
The Velvet Whip book
The Velvet Whip's Dan Ball, with fellow band member Henry Steinfort, has created "The Legendary Velvet Whip," a self-published book tracing the revolutionary counterculture Milwaukee band's short but important trajectory.
