’Tis Dining Month, the tastiest time of year! This means we’re dishing up fun and fascinating food content throughout October. Dig in, Milwaukee! OnMilwaukee Dining Month is served up by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino and Wollersheim Winery & Distillery.

It’s almost Halloween and that means spooky costumes, trick or treating and plenty of ghoulish fun. It also means scads of cute kiddos in adorable costumes.

Whether they’re dressing up like Justice League superheroes, dinosaurs, members of the Paw Patrol or witches from the reboot of “Hocus Pocus,” there’s a very special treat in store for you and your kids this weekend at all Lowlands Group Restaurants.

In an effort to get families into the Halloween spirit, all Lowlands Restaurants will be offering a free kids meal to any little trick or treaters who come dressed up for the occasion, along with at least one adult, on Saturday Oct. 29 or Sunday, Oct. 30.

The offer is good at any Lowlands’ location including Cafe Benelux (Third Ward), Centraal Grand Cafe & Tappery (Bay View), Bucktabon Tavern & Supper Club (Wauwatosa) or any of the five Milwaukee area Cafe Hollander locations, as well as in Madison. 

The special offer is valid with the purchase of one regular dining entree and is limited to one kids menu item per little ghoul. 

More autumnal fun 

As usual, Lowlands Restaurants are offering something special to do every day of the week this fall. From happy hours and wine nights, live music and comedy, you can get a list of all the happenings online.  

Beginning Nov. 1, Café Hollander at the Corners of Brookfield will also be partnering with Quizmasters Trivia to offer Trivia every Tuesday evening beginning at  7 p.m. Learn more here.
