Sarah Martini is closing in on the end of her term as "Rock Girl," an annual promotion/contest that 102.9 FM "The Hog" promotes heavily on its station and at area events.
Casting calls for the new Rock Girl begin April 23 from 8-10 p.m. at Whiskey Bar, and run through May 6. Then, fans can vote through the station's Web site or through Time Warner Cable On Demand. In June, it gets serious, with finalist events leading up to the crowning of a new Rock Girl on June 25.
So, with "Rock Girl Sarah" starting to wrap up her term, we asked her five quick-hitting questions about her year as a local celebrity.
OnMilwaukee.com: When does your term end, and what was it like?
Sarah Martini: It ends on Saturday, June 25. It was really awesome. I have met tons and tons of people. I've gotten to do a lot of fun promotions, concerts, Summerfest and State Fair shows. It's been really cool.
OMC: Would you say it's changed your life?
SM: Yes, it's definitely got me to be more outgoing. I'm a lot more fun than I usually am.
OMC: Was this the first time you've done anything like this? Have you done any promotional or modeling work before?
SM: I'm around people all the time, so I know how to handle myself around large groups of people. I've done pageants and stuff before.
OMC: Do you have any advice for women who want to be the next Rock Girl?
SM: Definitely come out of your shell and be as outgoing and fun as possible. Don't be intimated by anyone.
OMC: What's next for you after your term is over?
SM: I'm going to take a little time off. I do have a modeling agency that I've come in contact with through the radio station. We'll see where that leads to.
OMC: I'm supposed to ask you whether blondes have more fun ...
SM: It's going pretty well so far ... we're getting there. But yes, I definitely understand why they say that. It's very true.

When Jason and Randy Sklar perform their standup show Friday night at Turner Hall they're the first to admit that Milwaukee is a basically a Bizarro version of their hometown, St. Louis - and not just when it comes to sports fans. The first Adler's Fall Comedy Classic is right in the wheelhouse for the 43-year-old twin brothers, who span every genre of comedy but especially shine when it comes to smart and observational commentary rooted in "insider baseball" sports.

This time around, the "S" seems to stand for "subtle."

This review assumes that you have some familiarity with iPhones, and cuts to the chase with real-life examples instead of benchmarks

My 7-year-old daughter is a big fan of cats, and not coincidentally, she's a big fan of our veterinarian, Dr. Becky Banks, from the Small Animal Hospital. In honor of OnMeowaukee Cat Week - and Becky and Mara's friendship - my daughter prepared nine questions about cats for Dr. Banks, which I shared with Becky over coffee. Here they are, in Mara's own words.

It's been more than a decade since OnMilwaukee spoke to Tom Wopat, best known as Luke Duke from the hugely popular `80s series, "Dukes of Hazzard." Wopat, of course, is from Lodi, just outside Madison, and in his career he's done a lot more than the Dukes. A Tony-nominated Broadway actor, he's also released a number of successful albums in different genres. Now, Wopat is coming home (or close to home, anyway) to open the Oconomowoc Arts Center's Main Stage Series on Saturday. He'll be performing jazz-inspired renditions of contemporary classics from his album, "I've Got Your Number."
