I like to joke that Chicago is Milwaukee's favorite suburb. Reality is that it's one of the world's great cities and Milwaukee is lucky to be in its radius. I love Chicago, minus its sports teams, and do my best to get there on a regular basis.
Increasingly more and more Chicagoans are heading north, too, as weekends in the Third Ward and other parts of the greater Downtown area are full of flatlanders looking for fun and unique Milwaukee flavor.
This month's Chicago Magazine helps its locals find Milwaukee dining with a nice "Midwest Foodie Travel" feature on our fine city. The story covers many area hot spots, and features nice profiles of Brady Street and Bolzano Artisan Meats.
Read the full story here or in print in the June edition of Chicago Magazine.
And, speaking of Milwaukee dining don't forget that Downtown Dining Week begins this Thursday.
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.
