Police fans can use their ticket to tonight’s Marcus Amphitheater concert to get into German Fest, the unrelated ethnic festival running concurrently on the Summerfest grounds this weekend.

    The best thing to pair with a little dog such as myself is a little kid.  They love to play, get messy, and eat foods that stick to their face, and so do I.  That’s why I’m excited that German Fest is featuring a lineup of kid-friendly attractions and activities for the 2008 Fest.  Here’s a run-down of the kiddie-fun that has my tail wagging:     All Weekend Long: German Fest...

        You can save your “dough” and eat more strudel at German Fest this year by taking a few tips from me and checking for great admission deals each day of the Fest.  The first thing to know is that everyone is a V.I.P. on Thursday July, 24 with free admission and food deals compliments of Usinger’s Family Night.  So, enjoy $1 brats, hot dogs and ice cream on Thursday, then co...

So, I’m calling it an extended weekend and starting the party on Thursday with Usinger’s Family Night from 5 to 10 p.m.  What’s better?  I can still afford to come back all weekend since Thu...

You know what I love more than kibbles, more than table scraps even? The food at all of the bars and restaurants on the German Fest grounds, of course. I’ve got my eye on some new menu items, including a smoked beef sausage called the landjäger, and a giant Oktoberfest pretzel imported from the Fatherland in Bavaria. The combination of a nice salty, smoked landjäger and a warm pretzel is “...

There are a lot of reasons I run. Sometimes I run for practice before the big race, sometimes I run to fetch a tennis ball, sometimes I run because chasing my tail gets boring after a while. While my four-legged friends and I will be racing on the German Fest grounds on Saturday July, 26, you and your two-legged friends can join in for 620 WTMJ’s Bill Michaels 5K Run/Walk for the Hungry, benefi...
