King Drive Schuster's
If you haven't gone over to 2151 N. King Dr. yet to get a peek at the beautiful four-story Chicago commercial style building that Kirchoff & Rose designed for legendary Milwaukee department store, Schuster's yet, don't hesitate too long.
chiefii
Chief's long-awaited "II"
WAMI board president Zoy Begos lauded Milwaukee trio Chief as "the perfect intersection where rock meets heavy metal." For me, Chief is the living, breathing, Milwaukee spirit of Thin Lizzy: heavy guitars and a pounding rhythm section, but with good songs constructed around melodies. Asked frontman Chris Tishler about the band that almost ceased to be, the music that vanished into the ether and the perhaps miraculous new CD.

1970 confrontations
Nestled between Wyoming Place mansions and St. Mary's Hospital, is the venerable Water Tower Park. In the 1960s, the park had become a popular gathering spot for all manners of young people, including the founders of the city's underground scene, political radicals, street theater performers and, of course, musicians who played drums, guitars or anything else that made enough noise to drive the mansion mavens up the walls.

Potawatomi Derby
The Kentucky Derby is known as the "most exciting two minutes in sport." And the Potawatomi Casino is pulling out stops to me their derby party just as exciting. Paul Lorenz Jr., runs the OTB parlor and is spearheading the party.
