10 Things to Do in Milwaukee This Weekend: March 25-27

Stand-up comedy, a beer festival and more make our weekend guide.

1. Hari Kondabolu at the Laughing Tap

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AT 7:30 P.M. | THE LAUGHING TAP

Queens-born comedian Hari Kondabolu is headlining The Laughing Tap this weekend. Kondabolu is one to watch, and his resume is extensive: The Late Show, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel and Comedy Central have all seen his routine. Tickets start at $20.

2. A Jewish Literary Sabbath: A Mini-Symposium

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY | THE BINDERY

This long anticipated mini symposium will bring together a line-up of talented Jewish writers for a weekend of conversation and readings. Originally planned for September 2020, the free event includes panel discussions on the poetry & poetics of Jewish Soviet Émigrés and writing with/in Jewish texts, as well as several readings.

3. Peer Gynt with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra

FRIDAY AT 7:30 P.M. | BRADLEY SYMPHONY CENTER

A semi-staged adaptation of the outlandish tale of Peer Gynt, a hopeless yarn-spinner who lies and sneaks his way through many misadventures, will show at the Bradley Symphony Center this weekend. With just eight actors, a puppet, some props, and the Milwaukee Symphony Chorus, it will be a modern take on the original Norwegian play.

4. Beer Yoga

SATURDAY AT 10 A.M. |DEAD BIRD BREWING

Beer yoga led by MKE Yoga Social will make a stop at Dead Bird brewing this Saturday. Dead Bird’s location is relatively new to town, and enjoys a spacious warehouse vibe with picnic tables, vintage games and some serious natural light. After your flow, enjoy a complimentary beer and maybe even stay a while for a plate of vegan nachos.

5. Sour Fest

SATURDAY AT NOON | MOBCRAFT BEER

Join MobCraft beer and other local breweries for the 4th annual Sour Fest featuring wild and sour beers on tap and sampling sessions. Tickets include a commemorative taster glass and unlimited samples of sour beers from craft breweries like Radix Fermentation, The Fermentorium, Third Space Brewing and more.

6. Shamrock Beer Run 5K

SATURDAY AT 1 P.M. | GREENFIELD PARK

After a pandemic-induced hiatus from in-person races, the Shamrock 5K is in full swing. Show up early for drinks at the beer garden before gearing up in some heavily branded race swag. Registration includes a long sleeve tech shirt, a custom pint glass and, of course, a finisher medal that doubles as a bottle opener.

7. Vegan Chili Cookoff

SATURDAY AT 1 P.M. | RIVERWEST CO-OP

Come bearing vegan chili and compete for the honor of representing the Riverwest Co-op at the WMSE Chili Cookoff coming up this April.
