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."

Beginning this November, Bartolotta's Rumpus Room, 1030 N. Water St., will host a series of dinners exploring great moments in music and food.

The dinner series, the product of a collaboration between Wisconsin Foodie host Kyle Cherek and WKLH's Steve Palec, will feature poignant stories and great music from legendary rock icons like the Rolling Stones, New Orleans musicians including Louis Armstrong and Alex Chilton, and a variety of other rock 'n' roll influencers.

The Rolling Stones will be the focus of the first dinner, which will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 16 beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Enjoy four courses inspired by the French Riviera, along with true stories straight from Nellcôte, the luxurious chateau where the Rolling Stones recorded "Exile on Main Street." Pricing is $55 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Tickets can be purchased online at

Future dinners will include Rhythm & Flavor of New Orleans on Feb. 22 and the Evolution of Rock & Roll on April 12.
