Earlier this week, OnMilwaukee reported that Oak & Shield Gaming Pub would most likely move into the spot currently occupied by Karma Bar & Grill, 600 E. Ogden Ave.
Yesterday, during a Facebook Live special announcement, 42 Lounge owner Lynn Richter added to the news, saying she was moving her popular geek bar to the lower level of the Ogden Avenue building.
The opening date remain uncertain – Karma is still currently open – but Richter predicts her last day of operation at the current 42 Lounge location, 326 E. Mason St., will be March 17.
"We are really looking forward to many upsides of this move, including the opportunity to offer larger events and multiple events at the same time, as well as food and much better parking," says Richter.
Stay tuned to OnMilwaukee for more information about the opening of Oak & Shield and 42 Lounge in the near future.
"In the mean time, we encourage people to go to Karma and take advantage of what they still have to offer," says Richter.
Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
