Milwaukee – Catch 22 MKE Wed, 21 Sep 2022 04:18:25 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Milwaukee – Catch 22 MKE 32 32 Men’s soccer resumes Milwaukee Cup for first time since 2014 – Marquette Wire Wed, 21 Sep 2022 04:18:25 +0000

Senior defenseman Alex Mirsberger etched his name in the Milwaukee Cup history book on Tuesday night as the Marquette men’s soccer team beat rivals University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee 5-2 at Valley Fields .

Tuesday night’s match marked the 48th all-time meeting between the two teams and the first time since 2019.

With this victory, the Golden Eagles won the cup for the first time since 2014.

“I’ve been in this (Milwaukee Cup) for maybe 28 years and winning it is definitely satisfying,” said Louis Bennett, Marquette men’s soccer team.

Prior to joining the Golden Eagles in 2005, Bennett was on the other side of the rivalry as the Panthers’ head coach from 1996 to 2005.

Both teams got off to a slow start, neither finding the net until the 18th minute when Mirsberger headed home a corner from junior striker Beto Soto.

Mirsberger scored twice more in the first half, both from corners.

“Every time we (Marquette) get a corner kick I knew the ball was coming my way and I just had to put my head in there,” Mirsberger said. “I did it three times, what else can I say?

He is the first Golden Eagle to record a hat trick since October 22, 2011 when C. Nortey did it against Seton Hall.

“He’s a senior and a local guy, so scoring a hat trick at the Milwaukee Cup is a great way to finish,” Bennett said.

The Panthers broke their silence just before halftime in the 43rd minute when freshman forward Emil Lindgren Pedersen beat Golden Eagles freshman goaltender Ludvig Malberg in a one-on-one run. head.

Malberg got his second start of the season as senior goaltender Chandler Hallwood missed the game after being shown a red card on Saturday night against Yale.

Milwaukee continued their momentum in the second half as the Panthers cut the Golden Eagles’ lead to 3-2 in the 54th minute on a Logan Farrington goal.

That would be as close as the Panthers get to the Golden Eagles.

In the 54th minute, Milwaukee goalie Gijs Van Schouten was shown a red card, resulting in a Marquette penalty. Second-year forward Abdoul Karim Pare took the shot and scored his fourth goal of the season.

Marquette’s fifth goal of the night came in the 68th minute when Soto’s shot was deflected by a Milwaukee defender into the net.

The Golden Eagles’ five-goal game is the most goals scored by either team in the rivalry since 2000.

“It was definitely a rebound game,” Bennett said. “This rivalry can sometimes be marred by emotions and overemotion, but we kept our emotions in check.”

Bennett acknowledged fan involvement on both sides.

He said he wished he could run to the student section and participate in post-game chants, but he wasn’t able to as he always wears a walking boot.

“I love a good song,” Bennett said.

Marquette ends his non-conference schedule with a 4-3 overall record.

Next up for the Golden Eagles will be their Big East regular season lid lifter in Cincinnati, Ohio against Xavier on Saturday at 6 p.m. CST.

]]> Local nonprofit hopes to preserve and celebrate Hispanic heritage in Milwaukee Sat, 17 Sep 2022 02:14:00 +0000

MILWAUKEE – Hispanic heritage is rich and diverse. The mission of a local non-profit organization is to ensure that the rich culture is preserved and celebrated in Milwaukee.

“We take great pride in only featuring Hispanic and Latino artists, whether domestic or international,” said Jacobo Lovo, artistic director of Latino Arts Inc.

For the past six years, Lovo has served as the organization’s artistic director. The non-profit arts and culture is anchored in the heart of the southern part of the city.

“Our mission is really two-fold. One is to preserve Hispanic cultural heritage for the community, but equally important is to use that cultural heritage to build bridges between non-Hispanic white people,” Lovo said. “To what we believe to be the best possible path which is the cultural arts.”

Currently in their gallery is the work of Richie Morales, a self-taught painter. Her work explores memory loss and the effects of Alzheimer’s disease on her grandfather.

The visual arts are not the only focus of Latino Arts Inc. It also offers a strong music program for young people.

“We develop young musicians and give them that sense of belonging. This program involves teaching them Bach at labammba, so the students are trained in a classical way, but then they are also trained in the cultural use of the heritage they bring.”

And it is this heritage that Latino Arts Inc will continue to preserve and celebrate.

“It’s important to recognize that the Hispanic community is very diverse. It’s multi-generational, and it’s so culturally rich.”

Milwaukee will celebrate Santiago Calatrava Day on Friday Wed, 14 Sep 2022 22:20:00 +0000

MILWAUKEE – Bob Shirrell and his wife are frequent visitors to the Milwaukee Museum of Art, going there at least every two or three months.

What do you want to know

  • The Milwaukee Art Museum celebrates its 20th anniversary
  • The Quadracci Pavilion was designed by architect Santiago Calatrava
  • Mayor Cavalier Johnson dedicated Friday, September 16, 2022 to Santiago Calatrava Day
  • The Milwaukee Museum of Art is offering free admission on Friday to celebrate

On Wednesday, he and his wife were in town from Northfield, Illinois, with a cousin from the East Coast. This meant plenty of photo and video opportunities, especially in front of the museum as the wings closed and opened at noon.

“It’s a novelty, obviously, and it’s fun to have,” Shirrell said. “It’s striking.”

And they are not alone.

Many people from all over Milwaukee, Wisconsin and around the world come to admire the uniqueness of the museum movement.

Virginia Harrop is from London, England. It was his second visit to Milwaukee. The first was in 2015.

“One of the main reasons we really wanted to come back was because when we arrived the art gallery was closed for renovations, so we wanted to come back to see it now,” Harrop said.

Not only did she want to see the works of art, but she wanted to see the museum in its own grandeur.

“The wings that open and close… the moving architecture is quite amazing,” she added.

The museum celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Quadracci Pavilion, designed by Santiago Calatrava, on Wednesday, saying they got more from him than they ever hoped for.

“In 1994, when we started this process, we thought we would get a nice building. Ultimately, what we received as a gift from Mr. Calatrava was a sense of destiny, a sense of purpose, a sense of hope and aspiration for our community,” said Marcelle Polednik, Director of Milwaukee Art Museum. “A sense of aspiration that we haven’t realized yet, but that’s the good news. This is the work of the next 20 years and beyond.

With Calatrava in town for the celebration, Spectrum News 1 asked him how the museum compares to what he envisioned when he designed it.

“The intention was to open the city to the lake. It is also very important. It is not only a contribution to art, but it is also when art has become an anchor to the city as a point of reference as well as a connection with the city, with the nature of the lake in front us,” Calatrava said.

The museum celebrates “Santiago Calatrava Day” on Friday, September 16, 2022, with free entry. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day.

‘Dream to reality’ – Letter to Milwaukee from Gal and Itay Mon, 12 Sep 2022 21:33:44 +0000

Hi there ! It’s Gal and Itay, the Milwaukee shin-shinim. We can’t believe a year has gone by so quickly. It was a real rollercoaster, but it was absolutely the time of our lives. Where can we even begin? No words can describe all that we have learned, experienced and done this year.

Let’s start at the beginning…

Gal: Let’s go back in time to 2017. A group of American students from a school called Milwaukee Jewish Day School came to my high school – Kadoorie, located in the Milwaukee Partnership Area, Sovev Kinneret. I remember how excited I was when I received the message that my family would host some students and I could meet them. Never in a million years would I have believed you if you told me that five years later I would write you these words all the way to Milwaukee. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity during the MJDS visit to hear about the shin shin program. That was it. I knew it is what I wanted to do. This dream has always marked me: to become shin shin in Milwaukee.

Three years later (while I was constantly nervous waiting for the call from JAFI, the Jewish Agency for Israel), I received the better news — I’ve been selected to be one of Milwaukee’s next shin shinim! I remember it like it was yesterday, I couldn’t believe it. Me? A shin shin in Milwaukee? It always seemed like such a distant dream. That day was the best day of my life. Waiting for the start of the year was all I thought about and talked about.

Itay: In 2018, I went on a month-long delegation to Charlotte, North Carolina, with my school. It was the first time I visited a Jewish community center and discovered a Jewish community outside of Israel. I knew I had to explore and experience more! During the first year of high school, I applied to be a shin shin with the Jewish Agency for Israel. I didn’t know where or even if I would be selected. After a very long six month process, I got the phone call regarding an interview with the Milwaukee community. Milwaukee? I had Nope idea that it was a real place. Long story short – I walked in! I was delighted.

For both of us, coming to Milwaukee for the service year was a little scary. The long list of wonderful ancient shin shinim was also intimidating – we knew we had some. really big shoes to fill, but we were ready for the challenge and for the adventure. Our service here would include representing Israel in the Jewish community, teaching and sharing about our lives, Judaism and Israel, making connections, learning about the culture and people, living with new families, and much more!

On August 19, 2021, we arrived! We were so excited to start our new journey. We were greeted at the airport by strangers holding signs. Little did we know that these strangers would become the closest people to us, the most loving, caring and warm people. We jumped into their cars and for the first time went to our new homes.

The homestay experience was one of the best things we could wish for this year. We have done so much together and learned so much about Jewish life outside of Israel. We’ve done everything with them, from everyday dinner parties to trips across the country. We can’t even explain how grateful we are to them. These are the bonds that will last forever. They have a house in Israel, and we have a house in Milwaukee.

Thanks to the Steele, Mirviss-Jossart, Nelles, Graupe and Stein families. We couldn’t have done this without you. We love you.

We cannot express how much we take with us this year. What we have received has as much impact as what we have given. This year has taught us lessons for life, especially how to deal with long, cold winter (just kidding), but the most The most important lesson is that home is not just one place. It’s where you feel safe and loved, and that family is not just by blood, but the people who care about you most – your story and meaning grows inside you and who you want to become.

Our year has been packed up with amazing things. Sounds like a lifetime, certainly over a year.

We started straight with Jewish holidays at MJDS, Gan Ami and many synagogues in the area, even Waukesha.

Later, we joined the Hebrew classes at Nicolet High School, which was absolutely amazing!

Meeting all the students and teachers was such a blast, but more than anything our goal was to be the face of Israel in the community. We’ve made connections in big and small ways – in the classrooms and in the small chats we’ve had with people at Starbucks, the streets, the halls of MJDS, attending BBYO events, and more.

None of this would have happened without all the people who have been part of our journey. We appreciate you. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to experience the year of our lives. Thank you for making us prosper. We will forever cherish the best moments of Gan Ami Early Childhood Educationnotthe Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center; MJDS; Nicolet High School; Hillel Milwaukee; Congregations Shalom, Sinai, Emanu-El B’ne Jeshurun, Emanu-El of Waukesha, Beth Israel Ner Tamid; and more. You have our hearts. Thank you for all the unique people and experiences we have been able to meet and experience throughout this year.

We so appreciate the children and people of all ages, our host families and so many others with whom we have had the good fortune to meet who have become our community, our safe place, our home. Special thanks to Susie Rosengarten, Uria Roth and Tzipi Altman-Shafer of the Jewish Federation of Milwaukee. And thanks to Rabbi Shari Shamah, Heather Spencer, Jori Broidy, MJDS staff, Gan Ami staff, all our supervisors and synagogue staff, Toni Davidson Levenberg and Camp Interlaken staff, Or Eliaz and Hillel d always be there for us. It was a pleasure for us to work with you. You have shaped our experience into the best possible.

We end the year in the best place on earth, Camp Interlaken! It was amazing to end our year in this amazing place. Here we were able to reconnect with some people we already knew, as well as meet new and wonderful people. We made more friendships and were able to do things we had never tried before – waterskiing, working with the campers, experiencing wonderful Shabbats and exploring the beauty of the northern Wisconsin woods. We can’t believe camp is almost over! We love him so, so much and we don’t want to leave.

Now, as we approach the finish line of our year as shin shinim, we are filled with pride, joy and jealousy for the next shin shinim to come to this incredible community. We wish we could start all over and start over. Exactly the same as it was. We want to thank you all for making this year as meaningful as it was. Thank you for welcoming us into your community, for being open to learning with us, for sharing with us, and thank you for all the times we realized we were so happy here – in Milwaukee, our second home. It won’t be too long, we’ll be back.

With then much love and gratitude,

Gal Garti and Itay Rokban

]]> Bars you can navigate to in Milwaukee Fri, 09 Sep 2022 14:57:42 +0000

In summer in Milwaukee, the best friend is the one who owns a boat. Discovering Milwaukee from the waterfront is a great way to see the city from a new perspective. And since the summer months are fleeting, make the most of the season by eating and drinking at the waterfront bars and restaurants.

Not just a big city on a big lake, Milwaukee also has three rivers to explore: Milwaukee, Menominee and Kinnickinnic. So if the mere thought of the crest of the waves makes you dizzy, opt for a river cruise and enjoy a much more relaxing experience. Also, all the best places to stop are along the rivers.

If you don’t have access to a friend with a boat, rent one Milwaukee Duffy, which launches easily from the Boone & Crockett. These electric boats are as easy to drive as a golf cart, or if you don’t feel like driving there’s a ‘skipper service’ for an additional fee – well worth it if you plan to test drive each of the 10 bars along the river route. Rates start at $149 per hour and the boats can accommodate up to 12 people.

Now get out there and make the most of these last few warm months. Starting from the south to the north, all these beautiful establishments are accessible on foot and by boat.


During our annual festival of love for the city we call home, readers and editors donate crazy props to the people, places and things that make us tick right now. From restaurants to remodelers, we’ve curated over 100 reasons for you to get out and explore Milwaukee.

1. Barnacle Bud’s


This quirky gem is off the beaten path and much easier to find from the water than from the road. During busy weekend hours, it can be difficult to find a slipway at the dock. With a full menu of inexpensive food and drink, you can easily spend an afternoon in this hidden enclave and forget you’re in Milwaukee.

2. Boone & Crocket


Making the most of their waterfront property, find kayaks, pedal and paddle tavernas, and the infamous Taco Moto truck, all in the Boone & Crockett parking lot. Retreat indoors for a comfortable place to sit and an Old Fashioned fort if you need a break from the sun.

3. Sailmaker

649 E.ERIE ST.

This place is accessible from the Third Ward Riverwalk and adjacent to a colorful lawn, compete with oversized garden games and a small free library. The large bar is a great place to meet a new friend or just order apps and ask them to deliver to you dockside.

4. Pizzeria by the river

509 E.ERIE ST.

Also on the Riverwalk, Riverfront Pizza’s high-carb menu is a great place to fill up during a long day of drinking. Enjoy the view of the old railway trestle in the water and stretch your legs on the terrace.

5. The Starling Pier Garden


The new kid on the block, where Water and Erie streets meet, is a private event venue with rotating Tall Guy pop-ups and a Grill. The Flour Girl and Flame pizza brunch is not to be missed. Watch for other concepts throughout the year.

6. Blue bat and tequilaria cooking


For foodies, Blue Bat is a great stop to stock up on dishes inspired by global street food. And there are over 160 tequilas to try if you’re in need of beer.

seven. Rock Bottom Brewery


Just past a giant fish mural, find a huge outdoor terrace that’s often filled with people drinking craft beer and waving at passing boats. Rock Bottom has a huge menu and great views of the Bronze Fonz.

8. The harp


La Harpe is the perfect place to party. Live music every Sunday and rowdy crowds make this Irish pub a great place to stop if you’re with a band ready to let loose.

9. Brewery by the lake

1872 N. TRADE ST.

This northern part of the river seems a bit sleepier, but there is still plenty to see. Moor up and stay for one of Lakefront’s famous brewery tours, or perhaps enjoy a Friday night fish fry.

Kegnado. Photo courtesy of Lakefront Brewery.

10. Stubby’s Gastrogrub and Beer Bar


Finally, someone has mastered gourmet bar food to go with a huge selection of craft beers – 53 taps rotating, to be exact. Allow a little extra time if you stop in so you can enjoy air hockey, pop-a-shot shuffleboard, and other favorite games before tucking into snacks like Brussels fries and pulled chicken nachos .

REMARK: My husband Ramsey Renno owns and operates The Starling. I limited my bias to the Flour Girl & Flame pizza, which we don’t get involved in making. Ask anyone, it truly is a slice of heaven.

]]> The Golden State Warriors almost traded Stephen Curry for the Milwaukee Bucks, but doctors believe his ankle injuries could be a serious problem Mon, 05 Sep 2022 14:00:18 +0000

Since 2015, Steph Curry and Giannis Antetokounmpo have won two MVP Awards. Both have earned a Finals MVP award, with Antetokounmpo winning in 2021 and Curry earning his first award in recent Finals. The biggest difference between the two is that Curry has four championships, while Antetokounmpo has only one. That said, both are champions and MVP candidates and will go down as the greatest players in NBA history.
