Wrights Burgers & Wings coming to former American Euros space

Burger and wings lovers, rejoice. Maybe.

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 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.

Urban Milwaukee Dial reported you will be able to enjoy a few kinds of burgers as well as wings featuring mild honey mustard and fresh green chili.

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.

Love Handle will close March 21

Some of Milwaukee's best sandwiches will no longer be available after March 21. 

Love Handle, at 2215 E. North Ave., will close its doors after almost two years in business. The local sandwich shop – where the menu changed daily based on what's fresh – certainly had what I consider to be some of the best sandwiches in the city. 

The owners shared the sad news this morning via the Facebook page. 

Hopefully you'll get to stop by and try one of the delicious creations before Love Handle closes its doors forever.

There are no shortage of cocktails to try on any given weekend when out for brunch. I tend to gravitate towards the traditional Bloody Mary when trying a place for the first time -- if they can't do a Bloody right it could send the whole brunch into a tailspin! 

Luckily, most Cream City restaurants can make a pretty good Bloody -- here are Milwaukee's Best Bloody Marys -- but have you ventured past the traditional brunch partner?

Here are 5 to die for: 

1. Pizza Man, House Bloody Mary (made with gin)

I realize many don't think of Pizza Man for brunch. I mean -- why would you when you can go for some of the best pizza in town for dinner? While you can certainly order your traditional Bloody Mary -- you should try the house version with gin. Gin has grown on me in recent years -- and the Pizza Man Bloody Mary only made me like it more. Plus, that ball of mozzarella! 

2. Movida, Bloody Maria (made with tequila)

Movida has its own spin on the traditional bloody too -- here comes the Bloody Maria. This version is different because it is tequila based -- but also because it is made with their house-made Gazpacho instead of a traditional tomato juice base. I loved the slight smokiness of the…

Would you wear it: shark suit edition

There is nothing like the Super Bowl to dredge up great conversations and debate.  And this year was no different. 

Ranking near the top of things discussed? Those dancing sharks featured during Katy Perry's half time performance. They had some mad moves – even with the one on the left messing up. But, admit it what you really want was one of those costumes for your closet!

Until someone comes along and wants to make all your dreams come true, this is what you get. Really.
