For the seventh straight year, October is Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com, presented by the restaurants of Potawatomi Bingo Casino. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2013."
About two years ago, we told you that Five Guys Burgers and Fries would open at 544 E. Ogden Ave., inside the East Pointe Marketplace. Indeed it did. But, it only lasted two years. The location is now closed. Sources say it closed 3-4 weeks ago.
Located where a Blockbuster was once located, Noodles now leases the westernmost space on the strip.
Five Guys has three other area locations, and six total in Wisconsin.
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.
