This summer, I wrote an article highlighting some of Milwaukee's most diverse bars and restaurants. I have three more to add to the list.

1. Jim's Time Out, 746 N. James Lovell St. According to Tom Sorensen, head bartender at Jim's, this bar is a "workingman's bar." But it's also welcoming to those without a job along with those who wear a suit-and-tie to the office. And no matter what race you are, Sorensen is ready to pour you a shot and play a game of dice with you. Stop in and see. (And look for a featured bartender profile on Sorensen later this week on

2. Omega Restaurant, 3473 S. 27th St. The diversity of diners surprised me when I recently ate breakfast here for the first time. The massive restaurant was packed with diners that ranged from Latinos to Indians to African Americans to White girls like me. And the pancakes were really good, too.

3. Thai Bar-B-Q, 3417 W. National Ave. My favorite Thai food restaurant in the city also attracts a mixed crowd. There are almost always a fair share of Asian diners in the place, but recently, I noticed it attracts LGBT families as well. Plus, they have this ongoing 2-for-1 Chang beer special. All the more reason to trek to this charming and delicious restaurant.
