Are you ready for some football? What bigger event is there besides a Green Bay Packer game in Wisconsin? The Packers ended their 2016 season losing to the Super Bowl runner ups, the Falcons. This year the Packers are healthy and have added a couple TE's for our boy Aaron Rodgers to throw the ball to. Our prediction for the year is that the Packers go 13-3 and once again represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.
Join the Eastside BID and North Avenue bars for their best event of the year, the Tomato Romp. Inspired by the La Tomatina Tomato Fight in Spain. 8,000 pounds of rotten tomatoes are dumped into a pit with proceeds going to the RIverwest Food pantry. If you don't want to get dirty and enjoy bloody marys then sign up for the Absolut Vodka Best Bloody Mary challenge where you sample bloody marys at local North Avenue bars. We will be hanging out at Vituccis so join us there for a Bloody Mary!

Milwaukee Film Festival - Milwaukee wi
SEPTEMBER 28th - OCTOBER 12th
Since moving back to Milwaukee from Los Angles I have felt like Milwaukee misses a beat when it comes to film culture around the city. The Milwaukee Film Festival is a yearly event that tries to help bridge that gap every year. Their kick off party is the closest Milwaukee event to a red carpet affair. Their website mission is "To entertain, educate, and engage our community through cinematic experiences."
