I have been writing for OnMilwaukee.com for 12 years, and yet, there are still so many people, places and things I have yet to profile. That said, here are five bars that I hope to write about someday, or at the very least, stop in for a drink or two.
1. Art's Performing Center, 144 E. Juneau Ave. I went into this "gentleman's club" once about a decade ago, but I didn't spend very much time there and certainly didn't get the who/what/when/where/why scoop. I find this place particularly interesting in light of other strip clubs not being able to move in Downtown.
2. Scaffidi's Hideout, 1837 N. Humboldt Ave. I lived on the East Side of Milwaukee for much of my life, and have never been in this place. I just need to know what's going on in there, since I pass it about a dozen times a month.
3. Treats Tavern, 2221 N. Humboldt Blvd. See my blurb for Scaffidi's Hideout, only change the word "dozen" with "hundreds." Seriously, how have I never been in this place? Maybe I need to do a far-south-end of Humboldt Boulevard pub crawl. I've only been to Stubby's, 2060 N. Humboldt Ave., one time. (And while we're talking about this area, can someone please reopen the Tasting Room or put something else in there? K, thanks.)
4. Cafe Centraal, 2306 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. This one's kind of a shocker. I don't live far from the place, I frequent other Lowlands Group spots on a regular basis, and yet, I have never stopped here for food or drink. It's one of my Brew City Blindspots, I guess.
5. Kelly's Bleachers, 5812 W. Blue Mound Rd. Seems like an iconic sports bar and I have never been in there once. Who is this Kelly, after all, and what is so special about her (or his?) bleachers? I will report back.
