Cave of the Mounds is a Wisconsin wonder
It seems to always happen in a farm field. A kid sees the mother of God, a white buffalo is born, an astonishing cave full of prehistoric paintings is accidentally uncovered. That's where Wisconsin and the world stumbled upon one of the state's most stunning natural attractions, Cave of the Mounds, too, in 1939.

Urban spelunking: BMO Harris Bradley Center
Standing in the penthouse - the highest point you can access inside the BMO Harris Bradley Center - and gazing down about 13 stories through the metal grate beneath your feet, the view down to the Bucks playing floor is stunning. For some it might be vertigo-inducing, but the view made me philosophical about Milwaukee's pro sports arena, which is unlikely to survive more than a few more years.

Thanks New York, we love you, too
With seemingly half the city now living somewhere in the 718 (and 212), maybe it makes sense that New York is paying a little more attention to Brew City. Whatever the reason, there's been a flurry of newspaper love from the Big Apple over the past 24 hours.

A winning hand at Locavore
Last weekend, I popped over to Potawatomi for drinks, dinner and a couple slots. Let's get this out of the way early. I did NOT win a million bucks on the penny slots. But our last-minute detour paid dividends of a different kind.

On Saturday, Aug. 22, the original lineup of International Jet Set reunites for the band's first gig in 25, playing at the Miramar Theater, 2844 N. Oakland Ave., as part of the Revenge Scooter Club Rally.

Wait, there are THREE Wisconsin State Fairs?!
It makes sense if you think about it, but it was news to me that Wisconsin has three - not one - annual State Fair. And just because I hadn't heard of them doesn't mean the Northern Wisconsin State Fair and the Central Wisconsin State Fair are newbies.

Grassel's 20th CD includes collaboration with Mexican rapper Tacuako
Virtuoso Milwaukee jazz guitarist and author has just released his 20th CD. The multi-talented Grassel played nearly every note on "2015 Jack" - which features a mix of original material and standards - but what's most surprising is his collaboration with Mexican rapper Tacuako, recorded in February in Cancun. We caught up with Grassel to ask about the record, the collaboration and more.

Chicago dishes up a flurry of options for daddy-daughter summer trip
A couple years ago I swept my little girl to Chicago for a holiday daddy-daughter getaway. When spring had sprung, she wanted to know if - nay, when - we were going to do the next one. Hence, the summer version.

Mysterious mounds make for historical hike
One of the Milwaukee area's most interesting parks is a bit off the beaten path, but it's worth making tracks to Lizard Mound County Park in Farmington, just north of West Bend in Washington County. A wooded path twists and turns through 28 Native American effigy mounds, including the one shaped like a huge lizard which gives the park its name.
