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.

I post a lot of photos of food, mostly because I'm guilty of the new axiom, "If you didn't put it on social media, it didn't happen." Judgement aside, whenever I look at my Instagram feed, I get hungry. So here are a bunch of photos I've taken from Wisconsin restaurants. Maybe after seeing them, you'll be hungry, too.

The Vector Luna really does look a real watch at first glance, although it puts me off by its thickness. From a distance, its screen looks pretty good, but wearing it, I never got past its very low resolution and lack of brightness. That's a trade off for its month-long battery life, but I can't help but feel like I'm wearing a piece of technology more like a Palm Pilot than an iPhone.
