{image1} Young Professionals of Milwaukee (YPM), a service of the MMAC, launches a new event called "Art Mob" on Feb. 3 at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts' Uihlein Hall.

The group invites its members and those of the Greater Milwaukee Committee (GMC) to experience the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra's "Gypsy Fire" performance and pre- and post-event receptions. It's YPM's version of a Flash Mob and an idea that the group borrowed from a similar group called Forum 35 in Baton Rouge, La.

Tickets for the event are $15. Call (414) 287-4158 with questions.

Also, YPM will hold the first event at Milwaukee Street's new Japanese and Korean restaurant and lounge, Saketumi, during its "Around Town" on Feb. 10. OMC has been inside the new place several times, and owner Omar Shaikh told us and YPM members that he'll be ready for the Feb. 10 event, plus other mid-February VIP grand opening events. Stay tuned to OMC for the official general public opening day for Saketumi.
