The "Social Circle" is a group effort between readers, social networkers and the OnMilwaukee.com editors. Every Monday, we ask a question via Facebook and Twitter and then post the responses from our Facebook "likers" and Twitter followers in this column. Well-known Milwaukee movers and shakers will contribute, too.
OnMilwaukee.com asked the The Social Circle where it takes out-of-town guests in Milwaukee and the response was incredible. Below is a sampling of the many comments, but you can read the entire thread here.
