It’s autumn, and the folks from Travel Channel’s "Food Paradise" are making their annual October pilgrimage to the Cream City for more must-try eats and one-of-a-kind dining experiences.
This time, they'll be making a stop at Good City Brewing, 2108 N. Farwell Ave., for an episode that’s likely to air early next year.
During their visit on Wednesday, Oct. 25, the film crew will be taking footage of both the kitchen and brewery. They also will be filming and interviewing guests in the taproom from 5 to 9 p.m. (so if you're looking to accrue your 5 minutes of fame, you might just want to make it your hangout for the night).
"We're honored that the Travel Channel wants to showcase us," says Good City co-owner David Dupee. "And we believe it is indicative of the overall momentum and energy Milwaukee is currently experiencing."
Travel Channel was not available for comment. However, a representative from O’Malley Productions confirmed that Good City would be their only stop in October; however, he said his crew is scheduled to return in the coming months to shoot footage for future episodes.
Milwaukee seems to be among favorite locations for "Food Paradise." It’s at least the third October running that crews have visited our city to film episodes. In 2015, they filmed footage at Milwaukee Beer Bistro in Riverwest and Cafe Bavaria in Wauwatosa, and last year they visited The Vanguard in Bay View and Saloon on Calhoun with Bacon in Brookfield.
In May, they made a stop at Comet Cafe to shoot a feature on their cheesy Tuna Mac Casserole as part of their "Meltdown" episode. You can catch the next airing of the episode on Saturday, Oct. 28 at 1 p.m. CST.
