Tin Widow opened on Feb. 1 and recently the Walker’s Point lounge unveiled a new, signature drink menu. Chad Polczynski and Michelle Hoff, both managing partners of Tin Widow, created the menu a couple of weeks ago.
High points of the menu include the Guyroni, named for Great Lakes Distillery owner, Guy Rehorst, that's made with raspberry Compari, Rehorst gin and Carpano.
There's also a signature Old Fashioned made with "love juice" (pinot noir and a cola reduction) and a Mexican mule, which is a Moscow mule mixed with tequila.
"The menu's a twist on classic cocktails," says Hoff.
The Tin Widow also has a nice selection of beer, wine, whiskey and bourbon.
Formerly Ten Bells, Tin Widow underwent a major remodel this winter and now offers a retro lounge vibe.
"I describe it as your grandparents’ den meets your cool uncle’s basement," says Hoff. "Chill and warm."
Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
