Yes, Milwaukee, winter has been long, been spring is approaching. And with that comes some much-needed heat

In this regular feature, we're being figurative about what's hot and what's not. Here's our take on the temperature this month. Let us know what what you think!

Brewers – Spring Training is in full effect, with less than a month until Opening Day.
St. Patrick's Day – Green beer and corned beef.

"House of Cards" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" – Let the binging begin.
Distilleries – Central Standard and Twisted Path and more to come?

Temperatures – Finally on the upswing; spring is within sight ... almost
Cadbury eggs – Gooey Easter goodness.

That dress – An Internet meme that got us talking about science. But it can stop now.
Bucks – After trading away leading scorer Brandon Knight on Feb. 19, the team has struggled, including losses to the lowly Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz. Hopefully Saturday's win over the equally struggling Wizards marked a comeback.

Butch's Steak House – Closing after years in business Downtown.
Academy Awards – A recent report says the Oscars will head back to fewer best picture nominees, going to just five again. Because that's the problem.

Scott Walker flubs – Protestors are like ISIS? Seriously.
"Sex Box" – Is this really what we've come to?
