Rev up your engines: it’s a very motorcycle-y Milwaukee weekend.
This Friday is Flat Out Friday, the indoor flat track racing event at the Fiserv Forum. Then, on Saturday and Sunday, it’s Mama Tried at the Eagles Ballroom and Rave, a showcase of 100 custom choppers, vintage motorcycles, race bikes and more.
We caught up with organizers on Thursday as the load in began. Tickets are $18, plus fees, and the show runs Saturday from 10 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Andy is the president, publisher and founder of OnMilwaukee. He returned to Milwaukee in 1996 after living on the East Coast for nine years, where he wrote for The Dallas Morning News Washington Bureau and worked in the White House Office of Communications. He was also Associate Editor of The GW Hatchet, his college newspaper at The George Washington University.
Before launching OnMilwaukee.com in 1998 at age 23, he worked in public relations for two Milwaukee firms, most of the time daydreaming about starting his own publication.
Hobbies include running when he finds the time, fixing the rust on his '75 MGB, mowing the lawn at his cottage in the Northwoods, and making an annual pilgrimage to Phoenix for Brewers Spring Training.
