The Avett Brothers fill the Amp with superb strumming, if not spectators

It shouldn't have come as a surprise to see the Marcus Amphitheater a maybe generous 50 percent full - albeit an extremely enthusiastic and appreciative 50 percent - on Saturday night for The Avett Brothers.

Church fests documentary
After documentary films tracing Milwaukee and Wisconsin traditions like Friday night fish fries and the classic Sconnie supper club, local musician and filmmaker Ron Faiola is preparing to launch a new one.

Lizard Mound County Park
One of the Milwaukee area's most interesting parks is a bit off the beaten path, but it's worth making tracks to Lizard Mound County Park in Farmington, just north of West Bend in Washington County. A wooded path twists and turns through 28 Native American effigy mounds, including the one shaped like a huge lizard which gives the park its name.

Miguel Mayoral - Zarletti
Miguel Mayoral is a loyal guy. He's been working with Brian Zarletti as head chef at Zarletti's Restaurant downtown for the past 10 years. And, although he specializes in Italian cuisine these days, he has a world of experience with other cuisines. After hearing his story, I sat down with Mayoral to find out a bit more about him and his passion for food.
