This weekend in Milwaukee features something for everyone. Whether you’re an art-lover, a film fanatic, musically-inclined, sports-oriented or the owner of a sweet tooth, find an event to take part in this weekend in Milwaukee.
Sweet teeth are satisfied at Milwaukee Public Museum’s Indulgences celebration. This adults-only event reveals the science and history behind our most delectable, yet dangerous cravings. The Milwaukee Public Museum partners with over ten local vendors to bring the community hands-on experiences, as well as food samples, globally-themed appetizer stations and a cash bar. Purchase your tickets for Indulgences, happening this Friday, March 31, from 6:30-10 p.m.
Horror comes to Milwaukee seven months early this year with the second-annual Milwaukee Twisted Dreams Film Festival. Underground Collaborative on Wisconsin Avenue hosts this spook-filled weekend, kicking off the festivities at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, March 31. Fans will find a lineup of short animated horror films, a documentary exploring the fascination with serial killers, creepy short films, and a Wisconsin-made film at this festival, which runs from Friday to Sunday.
Still somewhat up and coming to the Riverwest neighborhood, Groovy Dog Gallery introduces a new outlet for Milwaukee’s creative minds. This Saturday, April 1, Groovy Dog features the work of local artist and illustrator Shaun Watson from 7 p.m. to midnight. His solo exhibition, “The World Is Mostly Lines & Colours,” explores themes of intimacy and friendship using the human body as a means of expression. Saturday’s exhibition includes free beer and a print giveaway.
Local live music is a beautiful thing, especially in the city of Milwaukee. Join Bugsy’s Back Alley Speakeasy Thursday, Friday or Saturday night for your music and mixed drink fix. Bar offerings include a wide selection of specialty craft drinks, both current and dating back to the years of the prohibition. Admission is free, with food and drinks for purchase.
If baseball gets you less than enthused, maybe you’ll be interested in catching the next Milwaukee Admirals game. This Saturday at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Area, the Admirals and the Texas Stars go head to head – literally. The hockey-filled evening tips off at 6 p.m.
An extraordinarily unique show featuring an ace fighter pilot who, after putting her career on hold due to an unexpected pregnancy, finds herself returning to the pilot seat only to fly drones and drop bombs on enemy combatants from the comfort of her air conditioned trailer in Las Vegas. While Grounded has been playing at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater since February, the show is hitting the road soon. See the final performance this Sunday, April 2.
An afternoon with Cinderella awaits at Milwaukee’s Ambassador Hotel on Wisconsin Ave on Sunday, April 2. Experience the royal treatment with princess party favor, themed food and beverages, photo ops with Cinderella and her most handsome Prince Charming, and maybe best of all, free parking! Make your reservations today. And remember, proper prince/princess attire is highly encouraged.
