How long until the micro apartment craze comes to Milwaukee?

Extreme tiny homes are all the buzz these days. 

Eco-friendly, small homes are making headway into media, TV shows and larger and larger cities. New York has a micro apartment program and Chicago is poised to build on the micro living trend in Logan Square.

So, as apartment development continues to grow in and around greater Downtown Milwaukee when will the micro apartment craze hit here? 

It is appealing, isn't it?  Less space, less stuff and less cash for rent. 

Where would these tiny, cool, micro apartments work in Milwaukee? Would you live in one? 

Chime in, and let's start building on this trend here in Milwaukee.

Here's your chance to meet country star Sam Hunt

Sam Hunt is riding high as one of country's hottest newer artists.

Gousha talks media, Milwaukee and more Thursday morning

On Thursday morning, March 19, you have the opportunity to hear Mike Gousha talk about Milwaukee, media and more.  You'll also have to put up with me as I have the pleasure of asking him questions as part of the East Town Association's Coffee Connection series that proudly sponsors.  For me, it will not only be fun but a bit of a "turning of the tables" as I had the honor of being a guest on Gousha's "Sunday Night" show many years ago.

These days, Gousha serves as a Distinguished Fellow in Law and Public Policy at Marquette University Law School.  He's an award-winning journalist, the host of the Law School's "On the Issues" conversation series and a contributing anchor and political analyst for WISN-TV where he hosts the weekly Sunday morning program "Up Front with Mike Gousha," which airs on ABC affiliates statewide.  

On Thursday, in a casual environment at the InterContinental Hotel in Downtown Milwaukee, Gousha will take questions, talk about media, Milwaukee and more.  You should come.

The free event starts at 7:30 a.m.
