Milwaukee's own Major Goolsby's scored a spot on yet another list of America's best sports bars.
TheDailyMeal.com's top 10 list places our hometown sports bar among top spots in Chicago, New York and Detroit. Here's what they had to say:
"Opened in 1970 and located less than a block from the Bradley Center, the home of Marquette basketball and the Milwaukee Bucks, Major Goolsby's is a city institution. With 45 HDTVs, it is especially vibrant on NFL Sundays, but is a great place to catch your favorite team every night of the week."
Major Goolsby's also received national attention in 2005 as the No. 4 pick in Sports Illustrated's Top 25 list.

What? Something is clearly wrong with this list. How did that great sports bar McGillycuddy's not make the list??

I see that Wills Northwoods Inn made the list too. It's the best Packer/Badger bar I've been to considering it is in a little residential neighborhood in Chicago.
MY kind of sports bar doesn't charge as much for beer and food as many of the trendier places in Milwaukee seem to do.
I don't think Milwaukee agrees with you. Every time I go in there for a pregame event or to watch a game the place is packed. Bartenders are always friendly and the food is great and comes out quick. I love their french fries, mozza stix and burgers. Goolsby's is easily the best sports bar in Milwaukee. Well done.
While Goolsby's is a fine bar and run well, it is easily the LAST place I think of when considering sports bars in Milwaukee to watch games. But then again, it has lasted longer than most sports bars in Milwaukee so it should get props for that alone.

Classic gangsters loved a good embarrassment of riches. And for a movie like "Gangster Squad," showing off is fine. But, when the swanky style of the era meets the stylized swank of the movie's own excesses, things get out of hand.
It feels like not a week goes by without someone posting something about how Facebook's invading everyone's privacy, spying on your browser history, etc., ad nauseum. (These posts are usually made on Facebook, by the way.) I understand the generic concern over the Orwellian slippery slope, but it doesn't take me too long to re-assess and arrive back at my old conclusion: Who cares?
Although outsiders may not see Milwaukee as a hotbed for the performing arts, locals know there's plenty of talent to go around. And, there are numerous venues across the city that proudly show off area actors, dancers and musicians. But, despite the wide array of opportunities available, Katie Rhyme and Karen Zakrzewski still felt something important was missing.
Merry Christmas, "Les Miz" lovers - I'm about to hate all over your musical.
Well, it took director Quentin Tarantino 20 years, but he finally got his Western ... kinda. Although it's fair to say he's been preparing his entire career with his raucously bloody shoot-'em-ups, Tarantino's time warming up has been well spent if "Django Unchained" is the final result
Unlike most middle-aged men, Judd Apatow can afford a whole garage of Camaros and Mustangs. So, it makes sense that his mid-life crisis would manifest not with a youthful car buy, but by splurging on the production of a new movie.
They say time flies when you're having fun. I don't know who "they" are (probably those terrifyingly upbeat "glass half full" people), but they nailed it. My 2012 is a blur of exciting times and memorable moments, most of which my lawyers have advised me not to discuss in detail. There's still plenty to talk about, though, and I've shared the highlights below.
Well, another year of movies is (almost) in the books. Full of many memorable ups and seared-in-my-brain-forever downs, here's my take on the best (and worst) of 2012.
Eleven years after "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" introduced audiences to the majesty of director Peter Jackson's Middle-earth, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" makes a triumphant return to the mythical land with a new trilogy based on J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit."
After being tasked with putting together an actual wish list, I'm legitimately afraid of the death glare I'll get if I hand over my ultra-practical, completely un-whimsical list of stuff I want. So, I'm posting it here.
