This post is brought to you by The Commerce Team. We operate independently of Editorial, and if you take advantage of an item or deal we recommend, we get a share of the sale. We read the comments, and we want your feedback.
How do you shop local? We all do it, and everyday we’re asked for cool Milwaukee area gift ideas and interesting places and sites to go to to help be represent Milwaukee to a friend, business client, family member or whomever.
At OnMilwaukee.com, our ShopLocal marketplace is still growing. And to continue its growth, I’m showcasing different products each week. Yes, we make money on this and yes we’re helping the local economy grow.
Last week, the great Hank Aaron himself finally met the Brewers ballpark pup Hank. It was a touching moment, for sure. And, you gotta think that the Hank magic (from both the legend and the dog) has helped the Brewers maintain their first place position throughout this 2014 season.
Now, as we enter the September stretch it’s time to go back to an item that helped fuel the Hank "craze," Brew City’s plush "I Heart Hank" doll.
Cute and cuddly, this pup makes a great gift and a perfect good luck charm for the rest of the season.
Buy one of these 8-inch tall dogs today and a percentage of the sale will be donated to Wisconsin Humane Society in honor of Hank.
The brewers sell their own official Hank plush at the stadium and on-line. This one mysteriously looks nothing like Hank and doesn't mention the Brewers. Get your kid the real deal and send a check to the humane society on the side. That way everyone wins (except Brew City who is simply trying to cash in on the Hank publicity).

The Zac Brown Band may be the closest to a true definition of a current day Summerfest mainstay as you can get. Their cross genre approach has wide appeal and while firmly anchored in their traditions and heritage the band is constantly evolving, taking risks and adding sounds, personality and styles.

After the show, my wife simply said that it was just "honest and real." That's what the show was. Urban and his band even stayed on stage afterwards shaking hands, slapping high fives and thanking the Wisconsin fans.
