Feast of the seven fishes - Milwaukee style
Though I've yet to get the gumption to try and do my own feast of the seven fishes at Christmas Eve at my house, I do dream.

Flu is upon us and Milwaukee is awash in germs
Stay away from Facebook, it's covered in germs. If it wasn't alarming enough that every third social media post appears to be about a feverish and/or vomiting child, the news at some local schools has been pretty crazy, too.

Dear Santa: Wine, please
This year, while composing a brief holiday wish list, I included a couple wines, thinking I'd enjoy the experience of a rare bottle of barbaresco or barolo much more than, say, an eight-pack of tube socks from Kohl's. But it got me wondering what some local wine experts might be including in their letters to Santa this holiday season. So, I asked. And here's what they said...

8 things I learned about BW3
Though I've had a yen for wings of late, I'm not all that familiar with Buffalo Wild Wings, which before last week I'd visited exactly once, for this. Last week, flying solo for dinner with the kids, I was in the mood for wings and whether or not it's possible, I decided I wasn't going to bring them to McGinn's or Leff's or Club Garibaldi for dinner. We weren't far from the Mayfair Road BW3, so we stopped in. Here are a few things I learned.

Urban spelunking: Leinenkugel's 10th Street Brewery
As predicted when its construction was announced in 1985, the arrival of the 10th Street Brewery really did mark an advent in Milwaukee brewing. It just took a while for it to find its way and it took the folks at Leinenkugel -- instead of Heileman -- to make it happen.

Lest we forget, Xposed 4Heads are back to refresh our memory
In 2012, a Facebook reunion group that brought together a slew of local musicians and scenesters begat a night of nostalgia and rock and roll at Turner Hall. That, in turn, left a CD document of the gig for posterity. It also led Xposed 4Heads to reunite and release a new 7" 45. We asked frontman Mark "GE" Eberhage to tell us the history of the band and the wheres and why-fors of the reunion.

Urban spelunking: The Iron Block Building
This year, Dental Associates completed its restoration of the Iron Block Building -- actually a pair of connected buildings dating from 1860 and 1899 -- and the work put a gorgeous new luster on one of Downtown's most aged landmarks. As Milwaukee's only iron-facade building, it's a real Milwaukee gem. To look at the historic Iron Block Building on the corner of Water and Wisconsin now, you'd be hard-pressed to believe it almost didn't survive.

Few likely know the idea of farm to table better than new Blue Jacket chef Justice Neal. Neal, after all, went from farm to table himself, having grown up on 40 acres near Beloit. Recently, Neal, who served as the restaurant's sous, was promoted to replace departing chef Matt Kerley, who had run the kitchen at Blue Jacket since 2013. Since he's already launched a new menu, we decided it was time to check in with him about his work in the kitchen.
