"Bar Month" at OnMilwaukee is back! For the entire month of March, we're serving up fun articles on bars, clubs and beverages – including guides, the latest trends, bar reviews, the results of our Best of Bars poll and more.

When it comes to preserving Milwaukee bar history, there might be no one more qualified than John Dye, owner of Bryant's Cocktail Lounge, The Jazz Estate and (more recently) At Random. In this episode of FoodCrush, we sit down with Dye to discuss his background, his motivation for taking on the curation of historic bars and the challenges he faces in keeping those spots alive.
Tune in for insights on the process of bringing these venues back to life, the cocktails they serve and the man behind it all. Then stay tuned for a reading of a portion of Robert Simonson's bar review of the newly renovated At Random during our Food Porn Minute.
