For the 10th straight year, October is Dining Month on OnMilwaukee, presented by the restaurants of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, dining guides, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as voting for your "Best of Dining 2016."
Riverwest's Milwaukee Beer Bistro, 2730 N. Humboldt Blvd. will host a preview party celebrating its national debut on the Travel Channel’s "Food Paradise" on Sunday, Oct. 30 beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The filming for "Food Paradise," a show which features unique dining experiences from across the country, took place in August 2015. The Oct. 30 episode will feature "Super Sandwiches" from eight restaurants around the U.S. Which of the Milwaukee Beer Bistro’s sandwiches will be featured? You’ll just have to watch to find out.
The festivities will include a variety of both classic and new menu items presented at three different food stations (appetizers, entrees and desserts), along with a cash bar, including new beers and wines.
Attendees are asked to bring two healthy food items for the Riverwest Food Pantry (items other than macaroni & cheese, please). Suggested items include canned vegetables and fruit, canned proteins (tuna, chicken, salmon, beans, peanut butter), whole grains and no-sugar-added cereals, pasta and seasonings.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $7.50 for children 12 and under. Reserve your spot by calling (414) 562-5540
Lori is an avid cook whose accrual of condiments and spices is rivaled only by her cookbook collection. Her passion for the culinary industry was birthed while balancing A&W root beer mugs as a teenage carhop, fed by insatiable curiosity and fueled by the people whose stories entwine with each and every dish. She’s had the privilege of chronicling these tales via numerous media, including OnMilwaukee and in her book “Milwaukee Food.” Her work has garnered journalism awards from entities including the Milwaukee Press Club.
When she’s not eating, photographing food, writing or recording the FoodCrush podcast, you’ll find Lori seeking out adventures with her husband Paul, traveling, cooking, reading, learning, snuggling with her cats and looking for ways to make a difference.
