Greendale residents have long been familiar with the name Ricardo’s—and the specialty thin-crust pizza it’s been serving for 40 years. In 2006, a second location opened, this time on a prime waterfront location in Milwaukee’s Third Ward. The newer location is called Riverfront Pizzeria, and the place still looks...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, July 23, GZA/Genius @ Apartment 720, 9 p.m. Debates over the best solo Wu-Tang Clan albums inevitably boil down to two 1995 releases, Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… and GZA’s Liquid Swords. The latter is the more cinematic and foreboding of the two, a fitting showcase...

Representing local talent

Since early on in her career Elaine Erickson has been drawn to African art. A collection of masks, beadwork, sculpture and other everyday items find a permanent home in the gallery she’s run for 17 years. But that’s not all you’ll find at her Third Ward exhibit space...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, July 31, CSS w/ The Go! Team and Matt & Kim @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. Hailing from Sao Paulo and sounding like a self-aware, electro-chic version of Avril Lavigne with a playfully dry sense of humor, CSS seemingly survived the pitfalls of a cutesy beginning in iPod Touch commercials...

Tonight @ Summer Sizzle - 9 p.m.

That Terence Blanchard emerged as a young powerhouse trumpeter in the ’80s might have made him a bigger star had Wynton Marsalis, another New Orleans trumpeter just one year Blanchard’s senior, not already accomplished the same feat. It’s unfair to compare the two too much, however, since Blanchard is far . . .
