’Tis Dining Month, the tastiest time of year! This means we’re dishing up fun and fascinating food content throughout October. Dig in, Milwaukee!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Saz’s State House,  5539 W. State St., is readying the secret sauce in preparation for their annual “Buy a Rack, Save a Rack” campaign.

Throughout the month of October, when customers purchase a full rack of ribs, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to ABCD, an organization that’s working to provide support for those diagnosed with breast cancer.

ABCD: After Breast Cancer Diagnosis is a national organization which provides free emotional support for anyone impacted by a breast cancer diagnosis. They do so by pairing diagnosed patients (as well as impacted family and friends) with a carefully matched professionally-trained mentor-survivor who can assist in nurturing hope and building confidence.

The bar at Saz’s will also be slinging a very special pink drink called “Sazzy Angel,” the purchase of which will also support ABCD.

“This is one of our favorite promotions of the year,” says Saz’s general manager Amy Haselow, “We get to have some fun while also giving back to a great cause. We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer, so this is something our team really looks forward to putting on.”

Racks of ribs can be purchased for both dine-in or carry-out. 

Saz’s is open Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.,  Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  For more information, visit or call (414) 453-2410.
