Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co. now serves pizza

Starting today at 4:30 p.m. you can enjoy more than just your typical caffeine jolt from Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co.

The local coffee favorite started teasing a few weeks back on social media of its new oven:

And I've been waiting in anticipation.

Steve Kessler at Anodyne told our Lori Fredrich, "We really wanted to fill the void at the Bay View store after we moved the roastery out. Both Matt and Lacee have been into pizzas for a long time. This seemed like a perfect fit. So they decided to take the leap of faith and do it. They have been practicing for the last 4-5 years on their outdoor pizza oven. We are really, really, really excited."

Well, Steve, I am really, really, really excited too. I can't wait to eat one of these soon! 

See you there, Milwaukee.

Vietnamese banh mi restaurant opening in former Arin Bert space

This past September our Molly Snyder reported on the closing of Arin Bert Coffee at 222 W. Wells St.

Downtown Milwaukee will soon welcome XANKIA -- pronounced Sun-kia and formerly known as Banh Mi Nhu Y -- this coming December or early January.

The Vietnamese restaurant has another Milwaukee location at 5455 S. 27th St., and focuses on Vietnamese sandwiches and Hmong cuisine. The South Side location is inside Pacific Produce and offers eight varieties of bahn mi that are made fresh to order. 

Owner Xa Xiong confirmed he is currently working on the space and hopes to open before the end of the year. 

Stay tuned for a first look -- or a first taste of banh mi -- once it is available.

Watch every interception Jay Cutler has thrown against the Packers

Every Green Bay Packers game makes me a little nervous. On any given Sunday ... who knows what will happen ... that kind of fluttery feeling deep in your stomach. 

Maybe it is just me. Regardless, you may find this video of every interception that Jay Cutler has ever thrown against the Green Bay Packers as entertaining as I did. 

Sure, every quarterback throws interceptions. But watching all of Cutler's somehow makes me feel a little bit better about the game on Sunday. 

Win or lose -- and it will be a tough game for sure -- maybe Cutler will add to this video.

In fact, I feel pretty good knowing that the probability of that happening is likely! 

Enjoy.
