Our home DVR records "CBS News Sunday Morning" every week. It’s a good, family show to watch together as the Jane Pauley-hosted news magazine entertains and informs in a "60 Minutes" light kind of manner.
On yesterday’s (Dec. 16, 2018) episode, Milwaukee got a bit of love as Downtown’s Pere Marquette Park and Milwaukee’s annual Holiday Lights Festival kick off were included in a segment by Jim Gaffigan.
Gaffigan’s "Opinion" segment featured his take on Christmas and a tongue-in-cheek view that the holiday should be moved to a warmer time of year. During the segment, you see a shot of Downtown park full of lights and fireworks. Look closely, and you'll also see the Usinger's sign.
Gaffigan’s wife, Jeanne, is a Milwaukee native and the Gaffigan family makes regular trips to Brew City including for many NYE gigs at the Pabst Theater (although he's not performing this year).

A life-long and passionate community leader and Milwaukeean, Jeff Sherman is a co-founder of OnMilwaukee.
He grew up in Wauwatosa and graduated from Marquette University, as a Warrior. He holds an MBA from Cardinal Stritch University, and is the founding president of Young Professionals of Milwaukee (YPM)/Fuel Milwaukee.
Early in his career, Sherman was one of youngest members of the Greater Milwaukee Committee, and currently is involved in numerous civic and community groups - including board positions at The Wisconsin Center District, Wisconsin Club and Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. He's honored to have been named to The Business Journal's "30 under 30" and Milwaukee Magazine's "35 under 35" lists.
He owns a condo in Downtown and lives in greater Milwaukee with his wife Stephanie, his son, Jake, and daughter Pierce. He's a political, music, sports and news junkie and thinks, for what it's worth, that all new movies should be released in theaters, on demand, online and on DVD simultaneously.
He also thinks you should read OnMilwaukee each and every day.
