Join us to win all summer long.
During the summer I end up having long-winded conversations with my friends about only heading somewhere for a drink or dinner that has a patio or outdoor seating. Or lots of open windows. I can't be the only one who has these conversations ... summer is short and I want to take full advantage of it.
Thankfully, one of my favorites, Draft & Vessel, is getting a new patio and bike corral just in time for warm weather. I've shared my love for the growlers and now this patio could become one of my favorites over the summer. I love sidewalk seating, mostly because it allows for great people watching. My guess is other people will love this new addition, too – the inside space is adorable and quaint but quite small.
The bike corral is getting added just in time for Wisconsin Bike Week to kick off this Saturday and with plenty of time before the Shorewood Criterium Biking Classic on Thursday, June 18. My guess is this bike corral will get plenty of use this summer – who won't bike for beer?
I love this trend of taking advantage of street space for more than just cars (and parking revenue) and hope Milwaukee – and villages surrounding it – embrace it. Bobby shared the awesome new street-side deck at The Pub Club this morning, as well, so hopefully this is a trend the city will embrace.
Update: Wright's Burgers & Wings will open May 26. Happy eatin' Milwaukee!
Burger and wings lovers, rejoice.
American Euros, 3133 N. Oakland Ave., near UWM closed its doors in mid-December and shared that a new restaurant would open in the space on Oakland Avenue. The new place, it was promised, would keep a few favorites on the menu.
The empty space will now be the home of Wright's Burgers & Wings. We don't know much about the menu at this point, but it's probably safe to say it will be burgers and wings.
I'll take a first look when Wright's opens – I can never resist wings – which should be soon if the Facebook page is any indication. Stay tuned.
