This Saturday, Bayshore’s Season to Sparkle continues with a free winter garden experience called "Winter Blooms." The event, presented by Art Below Zero, features floral ice sculptures, a live ice sculpting demonstration and live music.
The fun takes place Sat., Jan. 23, in The Yard at Bayshore from 12 to 2 p.m. (The garden will remain open for exploring after the event.) Mask wearing and social distancing is encouraged.
Along with a winter garden stroll, guests are invited to celebrate with live entertainment from Jake Williams, a Milwaukee-based, family-friendly musician who turns modern songs into hip piano grooves.
“We could all use some extra magic this year, especially during the winter months,” said Kirk Williams, managing director for Cypress Equities. “We are thrilled to be able to offer our guests a unique winter experience in the open-air setting of The Yard, where the beauty of winter will be on full display.”
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.
