October 2013

Best of 2013
Thirty-plus years of ferreting out Best Ofs has honed our mad skills. Pick a category – politics, the arts, food and drink, and much more – and discover the city you thought you knew.
Endangered Species
The dated BMO Harris Bradley Center puts the Milwaukee Bucks at an economic disadvantage. Some think we’ll lose the team without a new arena. But who’ll pay for it?

The Lion Awakens
Milwaukee’s Simbas youth club challenged the perception of soccer as a white suburban kid’s sport. The story of Simbas’ rise and fall, and its hopeful resurrection.

Lake Invaders
They make look like small-fry, but Lake Michigan's aquatic intruders have not come in peace.

The Bus Stops Here
A hub for transit in the city cost millions and sat nearly empty for decades. Now, it'll die.

Sky-High Gallery
