Milwaukee's not called the "city of festivals" for nothing -- they run all summer and, this year, they're stretching well into fall with the introduction of the East Side's newest festival, East Side Under Foot, Oct. 13-14.

The festival coincides with the last weekend of the East Side Open Market and includes cooking classes by Whole Foods, street musicians and performers, pumpkin carving, art demonstrations, and children's activities galore.

And in true Brew City style, there'll be a tented Oktoberfest celebration Friday and Saturday until midnight.

Stay tuned for a full article about East Side Under Foot.

As any “word nerd” can attest, you never know when inspiration will strike, so from a very early age Julie has rarely been seen sans pen and little notebook. At the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee it seemed only natural that she major in journalism. When offered her an avenue to combine her writing and the city she knows and loves in late 2004, she knew it was meant to be. Around the office, she answers to a plethora of nicknames, including “Lar,” (short for “Larry,” which is short for “Lawrence”) as well as the mysteriously-sourced “Bill Murray.”
