West Allis

This west suburb of Milwaukee – formerly an industrial powerhouse of its own – houses several fun parks and delicious restaurants, within easy driving distance of Downtown. The area's biggest draw, however, is the Wisconsin State Fair Park & Expo Center, which plays host to the Milwaukee Mile, Pettit National Ice Center and several festive summer events – including, of course, State Fair.

Combining a pair of Milwaukee traditions at Paulie's

Jan. 19, 2015 8:35 a.m.

Driving down Greenfield Avenue last week I spied the sign outside Paulie's Pub and Eatery, 8031 W.
