Join us on Saturday, July 23 for some lakeside munchies at the second annual OnMilwaukee Food Truck Fest. Choose from a menu of 20 trucks and enjoy the live DJ, games and entertainment. It's the biggest gathering of the best food on four wheels.

Need a pick me up? Join us as we delve into the caffeinated world of third (and maybe even fourth) wave coffee with Ryan Castelaz, the founder of Discourse Coffee.

During our chat, Castelaz dives into his journey to coffee, the origins of Discourse and the evolution of the brand which began in Door County, Wisconsin but which has now carved out a niche in the Milwaukee beverage scene. Along the way, he shares not only his personal passion for the craft, but the inspiration behind a brand which has pushed the boundaries of the coffee industry with its funky, avant-garde and experiential approach to the world’s favorite morning beverage.

Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club. 

When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
