It’s February so love is in the air. But it could also be in your booze bowl.
At Random reopened recently with a new owner, John Dye (owner of Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge and The Jazz Estate), and an on-fleek-for-the-era refurbishing of the vintage lounge. Dye brought back many of the classic At Random cocktails, including the Love Bowl, a drink designed for two that historically just might have inspired romance.
To celebrate all of this – love, fresh beginnings, booze – OnMilwaukee will host "The Love Bowlers," a FB Live series every Tuesday evening during February at 6:30 p.m.
During the 15-minute segment, a different Milwaukee couple will share a Love Bowl while answering questions about their relationship. The segments will also run on OnMilwaukee, for those interested in tuning in at a later date.
Want to suggest a fun couple for the final Tuesday in February? We have that spot open. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me who the couple is and why they would make terrific Love Bowlers.
And remember: there are no gutter balls in Love Bowling!
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.
