Wisconsin Hybrid Theatre presents free show at Frank’s Power Plant on February 13th

By Russ Bickerstaff
  Wisconsin Hybrid Theatre does exceedingly good work in out of the way places. Not exactly a noted venue for comic theatre, Frank’s Power Plant is, nevertheless, a fun little bar in Bay View. And so why not have a fun, little comedy there for Valentine’s Day? The Wisconsin Hybrid Theatre has recently announced something  considerably less extravagent than last year’s Very Vintage Valent...

From catching an awesome club, theater or co-op concert to hanging out with other locals in your favorite neighborhood haunt of choice, Milwaukee's options for fun are increasingly abundant as the sun goes down. While no neighborhood is completely genre-specific, the residents of each do take pride in their own unique flavor. Milwaukee has always been known for impressive bar-per-capita numbers.

Tonight @ Frank’s Power Plant, 8 p.m.

They’re trying to reinvent the city’s only feminist bookstore as a co-op, but first they’ll need funds.

Tonight @ the Paper Boat Boutique and Gallery - 7:00 PM

Somewhat amazingly, Sky High, the modern-looking skateboard shop adorning a pleasant but unassuming stretch of Howell Avenue, has been there for 20 years, long before a class of young entrepreneurs moved into Bay View and turned the neighborhood into a hip yet quaint oasis for independent businesses . . .
