Evaluating Summer in Milwaukee-wood
There's a famous song done by countless performers entitled "April in Paris." From Count Basie to Ella Fitzgerald to your Thursday night Jazz in the Park locals, the song has been performed by many since its 1932 debut in the musical "Walk a Little Faster." The city is warm and overall it’s a beautiful scene to be seen. Well, I’m waiting on the next great jazz composer and musician to entitle a sequel jazz tune "July in Milwaukee." July in Milwaukee is the best. As Summerfest concluded, Hollywood packed up its things and returned to its rightful location in California. Milwaukee has been the platform to a dynamic cast of stars from the music scene to the sports world to the entertainment stage. Milwauk-ywood (or Milwaukee-wood?) has seen locals like MLB commissioner Bud Selig in town, to music stars like the Black Keys and Katy Perry, to Entertainment Weekly and TMZ titans like Britney Spears and Kanye West. Wisconsin-Madison star Jon Leiuer and fellow Bucks draftee Tobias Harris were around town, Brandon Jennings made several appearances at the Bucks Experience at Summerfest with announcer John Pashke and Brewers pitcher John Axford made it down by the lake for the music scene as Milwaukee showcased its music extravaganza and all-around summer fun. Not to mention, just weeks ago the city debuted in the "Transformers" series as it played host to an action-packed scene in the blockbuster "Transformers 3" flick on the big screen. While summer comes to its midway point, the summer fun in Milwaukee rolls on, but boy were the last few weeks fun ones in the city of Thrillwaukee. It’s times like these that the city really shines. The city blossoms into a diverse, unique and lively city more so than any other time this year because everything is in full motion. The beach plays host to these long overdue hot streaks, all the bars are open for business with the patios waiting to be packed, the Brewers season is in full swing (in thanks part to the bats of a trio of All-Star game starters), the music beat rolls on from Summerfest to the city’s Jazz in the Park, Chill on the Hill, among other theaters and streets, and the environment of this city is at its all-time high. There is no better time to be in Milwaukee than in June and July. Enjoy the concluding months of summer, because while the winter holidays boast it’s the most wonderful time of the year, summer in Milwaukee truly is the best holiday within itself. Embrace the final weeks of "July in Milwaukee."
