While they've seen their fair share of scuffles lately, the Brewers are still in the midst of a playoff push – and in case that somehow wasn't enough to get you out to the ballpark this weekend, the local ball club announced their plans for their annual Cerveceros Night celebration on Saturday, Sept. 17.
In addition to an important home game against the New York Yankees at 6:10 p.m., the Brewers will host a number of tributes and celebrations in and around American Family Field, all in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month and Latin American culture.
For instance, before the game, the team will host a community mixer at Restaurant To Be Named Later from 4:30-6 p.m. featuring a complimentary buffet as well as live performances from DJ Kenny Perez, Gego y Nony, Browns Crew, Cultura Viva and Ballet Folklorico Xanharati. American Family Field will also host a cultura parade, taking off at 5 p.m. from the Potawatomi Gate in right field with a number of special guests, representatives and participants.
In addition to every ticketed fan receiving a Cerveceros-themed digital collectable, those who purchase a Cerveceros community night ticket package will get a Luis Urias Cerveceros soccer jersey. Plus, new Hispanic Heritage Month themed merchandise will be on sale at the team stores and merch stands throughout the stadium, along with a bonus marketplace on the terrace level near Section 406 showcasing Latino artists, businesses and vendors. Bring your phone to the marketplace as well, as it will also feature a special Cerveceros night photo op for an additional bit of memorabilia from the game.

And whether you're in attendance on Saturday night or watching from elsewhere, let's cheer on the Brewers – who are just two games back of a wild card playoff spot despite themselves. Here's to Craigtember hopefully kicking in one more time!
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
