It's a big day for "The Office" star Mindy Kaling, as her new movie, the indie comedy "Late Night," expands across the country and releases nationwide. And somehow, of all the places she could be on this most exciting day, Kaling is in Milwaukee – and she needs your help.

According to a post on Twitter last night, the "Mindy Project" star landed in Milwaukee, and she wants to know where she should grab lunch. Considering the post was sent at 10 p.m. at night, we assume she meant that to help plan for this afternoon.

Why is Kaling in Milwaukee of all places? It turns out the "Ocean's 8" actress is speaking in Brew City today as a part of Baird's 100th anniversary celebration. (Hat tip to Karen W on Twitter!) But that's besides the point. The truly important question is: Where should Mindy Kaling go to lunch? If I was given a vote, I'd send her over to The Vanguard in Bay View for sausage, Buckley's if she wants to stay within walking distance of Downtown or Bavette because who's gonna argue with a James Beard finalist. No one's ever been done wrong by the variety of options at Milwaukee Public Market, either.

But make sure to voice your own personal lunchtime pick with a comment on Twitter – and maybe Kaling will drop by this afternoon! Or maybe not because she did really want lunch at 10 p.m., and she already went. Oh well; recommendations for next time she visits Brew City then!

Oh, and "Late Night" is currently in theaters just about everywhere. Check it out!

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.
