Uptowner bar owners share tales of the beautiful people

The Uptowner - aka "home of the beautiful people" - turns 130 this month and will celebrate with a free bash on Saturday, Sept. 20.

West Allis wings battle
A few years ago, we OnMilwaukee.com editorial staffers did a couple wings challenges, but pitting places on the eastern sides of town -- Bay View, Downtown, East Side. This time, we decided to pit two beloved and acclaimed West Allis institutions to the test: TomKen's and Magoo's.

Pizza Man Waiter
As I walked through the large wooden door entrance, the aroma inside of Pizza Man on 2597 N. Downer Ave. was so intoxicating that it made my stomach quiver.
