Bucks home opener felt like a true event

Oct. 31, 2014 11:15 p.m.

The atmosphere in the BMO Harris Bradley Center was electric Friday night as the Milwaukee Bucks opened their 2014-15 home schedule against the Philadelphia 76ers. Was it the best basketball? Not always. But from start to finish, it felt like a true event and a place to be.

New stars are born at Milwaukee Ballet's "Don Quixote"

Oct. 31, 2014 11:47 a.m.

One of the major commitments Michael Pink has as the artistic director for the Milwaukee Ballet is to provide opportunities for dancers to stretch and move into roles where they are challenged to progress in their careers. As a result of that commitment, it is possible to sometimes see a star being born. That was the case Thursday night when the ballet opened Pink's "Don Quixote" at the Marcus Center.

Oct. 30, 2014 1:05 p.m.

Two years ago, Larry Sanders was Milwaukee's darling, a sudden fan favorite of those who follow the NBA and the Milwaukee Bucks. Last year was a totally different story. In 2014-15, Sanders seeks to recapture what went right two years ago under new coach Jason Kidd with a renewed hunger for the game.

Espinosa shares secrets of great crab cakes

Oct. 30, 2014 9:01 a.m.

Last week, planning to write a feature about crab cakes, I sought out Zach Espinosa, chef at Harbor House. We ended up having an in-depth discussion of what makes a great crab cake, the sourcing of crab meat and much more, including a discussion of trends in seafood. So, like a great chef does with an unexpected delivery of a new ingredient, I called an audible and am sharing the entire conversation with you here.
