6 events you won't want to miss in Milwaukee this weekend
Third Space Brewing takes a break from beer to host Yoga on Tap this Sunday, March 26. Participants of all levels are welcome for an hour of energizing-yet-relaxing yoga led by Tonieh Welland and Matt Reynell. But don’t worry; attendees can still get their beer fix. With the $20 ticket price, one beer from the tap room is included.
The weekend to learn how to “Reinvest in Your Nest” is finally here! The show, featured at the Wisconsin Expo Center at State Fair Park, runs from Friday, March 24 to Sunday, April 2. (The show is closed Monday, March 27 to Tuesday, March 28.)
For all the smarties (and maybe the wanna-be-smarties) out there: the US FIRST 2017 Wisconsin Regional Robotics Competition is coming to the UWM Panther Arena this Thursday through Saturday. Watch the “sport of the mind” as young people and their mentors compete by overcoming obstacles and solving common problems.
Take a trip outside the city this weekend and head north to Sturgeon Bay for Rick Risch at the TAP Lobby Art Gallery. Third Avenue Playhouse welcomes Risch’s electric mix of oil portraits and plein air work now through April 9. Spend time gazing upon Risch’s portraits that draw from his personal history, past hopes and future dreams.
Cleopatra. Ophelia. Stubborn Love. Hey Ho. If you can guess the American folk band that performs these hits, you should probably buy tickets for this weekend’s concert. Saturday, March 25, the BMO Harris Bradley Center hosts The Lumineers with special guest Kaleo & Susto. Find tickets online before they’re gone! (Plus: More live music happening this weekend)
Maybe you’re interested in American folk music, but you’re looking for a smaller, more intimate setting to enjoy it. Kentucky-based singer-songwriter Jasmine Poole, aka “Wonky Tonk,” joins Milwaukee for the weekend at the Art Bar. Head to 722 E. Burleigh St. at 9 p.m. on Friday, March 24 to see the artist that’s known for “putting it all out there.”
