The latest (August/September) issue of Black Meetings & Tourism features Milwaukee on its cover. The travel and meeting industry publication touts the city through a story on page 72.

In addition, the Web site has an extensive story on Milwaukee written by San Francisco-based writer and culinary expert Shirley Fong-Torres. According to Visit Milwaukee, Fong-Torres visited Milwaukee a few weeks ago.

The writer touts Milwaukee's "New City" image saying, "Nowadays, Schlitz is a wind-grieved ghost, Blatz is a wistful memory, and the Pabst brewery has been recycled into apartments and offices, living on mainly as a renowned theater. Miller is the only big brewer left, and St. Louis, not Milwaukee, has become the real "Brew City" of America. Yet cute little micro-breweries, many along the new River Walk, ferment the old tradition in a hip third millennium manner."
