Today @ the Summerfest grounds

The Summerfest grounds host this weekend the annual Arab World Fest, a non-politicized, non-religious cultural celebration. Gorge on shish kebab and baba ghanoush while learning about Middle Eastern cultures; witness the national Lebanese dance, the dabka; hear the ancient stringed instrument called the oud . . .

Today @ the Wisconsin State Fair Grounds

Here’s hoping you’ve worked up an appetite, because it’s cream-puff eating time. The Wisconsin State Fair kicks off its 2008 run today.

Today @ the Summerfest Grounds

Last call for knoedel! If you’re still got a craving for kuchen, sauerbraten, rollbraten, bienenstich and strudel, then get to German Fest, which completes its weekend-long run at the Summerfest grounds today, and get your fill while you can.

Today @ St. John the Baptist Armenian Orthodox Church - 11 a.m.

Armenian Fest, which runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today at St. John the Baptist Armenian Orthodox Church, might not have the cachet of the larger ethnic festivals at the Summerfest grounds, but the free event has been around far longer than they have: It began in the 1930s. You won’t find deep-fried cheese sticks here. The . . .

Today @ the Summerfest Grounds

German Fest continues its run at the Summerfest grounds today with plenty of schnitzel, lederhosen, yodeling and beer—all the good stuff.

Today @ Brady Street - 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Once the hub of Milwaukee counterculture, Brady Street has gentrified over the years, becoming in the process a commercial powerhouse and one of the East Side’s most revered destinations. Similarly, the annual Brady Street Festival has calmed down somewhat, becoming a popular, well-attended family festival . . .

Today @ Potter Ave in Bay View - Noon to 8 p.m.

In a brilliant marketing move, Pabst Blue Ribbon opted against advertising directly to its growing consumer base of young, bohemian types who view drinking unpretentious, bargain beer as a badge of honor.
