He moved the restaurant to a larger space after gaining popularity, but was forced to close and has worked at other restaurants since. Now, Sanchez ...

Be honest: do you have any idea what an alderman is?According to the all-wise Wikipedia, a 'Board of Aldermen' is "the governing executive or legislative body of many cities and towns in the United States.

This week on The Disclaimer, WMSE's weekly half hour of opinions with Ryan Schleicher, Matt Wild and I, we examine the state of film making in Milwaukee. The city produces plenty of short films (usually of the experimental variety), but what's holding it back from producing more feature films? And while we're on the subject of film, Matt ponders how (or if) the Milwaukee Film Festival could improv...

Milwaukee’s largest all-volunteer street party, the Bay View Bash will return for another day of fun, shopping and gorging on South Kinnickinnick Avenue on Saturday, Sept. 13. This weekend the festival released its music and entertainment lineup for the event, and as usual it’s charmingly quirky, featuring some very loud music very early in the day at the Rush-Mor Records stage, a strong-man c...

It wasn’t just that the stage was small... it was the layout of the seating, which surro...
