Hey, all you cool cats and kittens: Remember seemingly 37 years ago at the start of quarantine when "Tiger King," Netflix's entertaining hot mess of a documentary series, came out and served as the perfect streaming distraction, introducing the world (for better or worse) to Joe Exotic, Carole Baskin and the hit song of lockdown, "Here Kitty Kitty"? Well, now it's getting a pop-up bar at City Lounge in Cudahy.
Opening Aug. 14 through Sept. 6, the "King of Tigers" pop-up will feature decor, photo ops and sets modeled after the streaming hit, a menu of custom cocktail options and free trivia nights hosted on Thursday, Aug. 20 and Thursday, Aug. 27 at 7 p.m. both evenings. There is no cover, but guests must be 21 or older with no exceptions.
According to owner Alex Ahmad, while the bar will still institute the cleaning protocols and procedures from its ongoing "Seinfeld"-inspired pop-up opened last month – including using sanitizers and UVC light cleanings of the bar both after close as well as the following morning – masks will not be in place nor will a customer limit. (A polite reminder that studies say wearing masks in public can drastically drop our nation's COVID-19 numbers. So please wear a mask.)

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
