"Miracle" is a national concept that transforms bars throughout the country into a Christmas wonderland during the holiday season. In Milwaukee, Tin Widow, 703 S. Second St., once again gets the honor of participating. From early November to the end of December, the Walker's Point cocktail lounge will morph into "Miracle on 2nd Street" with more lights, more decorations, more music and more festive drink specials than ever before.
This year's theme is "Sippin' Santa" featuring a new menu of signature cocktails.
Because of COVID-19, the experience will be every bit as over-the-top, but with special safety precautions in place. All locations will follow directions from local officials for capacity and health guidelines. Tin Widow owner Sam Berman says they may also require reseverations this year.
“We are excited to be able to continue Miracle this year, especially in such an unprecedented time,” says Greg Boehm, owner and creator of Miracle. “It has undoubtedly been a tough year for everyone, and our industry has been hit hard, so some holiday cheer is in order. We feel incredibly lucky to welcome back so many of our dedicated partner locations and even welcome new ones across the world, with the safety and enjoyment of our guests as our top priority.”
