It's end of the year awards season: the Golden Globes, top 10 lists, the Lyfties, the Oscars ... oh what, you haven't heard of the Lyfties?
For the fourth year, ride-share company Lyft has announced its "Lyftie" award winners, aka the most popular and most visited destinations in each of the cities and markets it services.
Here are Milwaukee's most popular spots to make a stranger drive you to in 2018.
- Most Visited Bar/Brewery: Lakefront Brewery
- Most Popular Concert Venue: BMO Harris Bradley Center
- Most Visited Fitness Studio: Wisconsin Athletic Club
- Most Visited Brunch Spot: Cafe Benelux (the Third Ward location)
- Most Visited Late-Night Restaurant: Brothers Bar & Grill
- Most Visited Late-Night Neighborhood: Haymarket
- Only in Milwaukee: Miller Park
Well, there's definitely going to be a new winner in the Most Popular Concert Venue category next year! Otherwise, save for Haymarket scoring so high as the Most Visited Late-Night Neighborhood (never underestimate Bucks traffic!), there's no major surprises here. Benelux has always been a popular brunch spot (with or without its new domes), Lakefront Brewery has made itself one of the city's hottest spots for multiple reasons – tours, fish fries or just enjoying a beer – and Brothers makes all-too-much sense as a ride-share spot, considering its popularity as well as Water Street's general popularity amongst younger bar hoppers.
Anyways, congrats to the winners – and remember to be a winner as well by calling a Lyft or Uber instead of driving to all your Christmas parties and New Year's coming up soon.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
