It's the third in a four-part series called The Love Bowlers, a series that takes place at At Random every Tuesday night this month. Each week, a Milwaukee couple chats with OnMilwaukee about love and romance and whatever else comes up while sipping, aptly, a massive Love Bowl cocktail.

This week our guests were Deirdra "Dee" Copeland, Principal & Chief Strategist for DC Global Group, and Ossie Kendrix, CEO & President, African American Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin.

The couple has been together four years and share a home in the Halyard Park neighborhood with their pup. 

The couple shared stories about their first dates – there were two of them – as well as their shared interests, feelings on PDA and they even learned a thing or two about one another.

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.
