I'm not sure I can bring myself to pay attention to, or talk about, baseball today. So, changing the subject, there's a pretty good article in the JS about Wolski's celebrating it's 100 year anniversary. That's an old bar.
If “I Closed Wolski’s” doesn’t ring a bell, you probably moved to Milwaukee in the past 20 minutes or so. Never has a bumper sticker brought so many people to one tavern and kept them there past 2 a.m. There probably isn’t a bar in town that doesn’t wish it had thought of it first.
on Sunday it’s throwing a birthday party too big to fit in the cozy neighborhood bar.
Lakefront Brewery, 1872 N. Commerce St., will host the bash from 2 to 9 p.m., with the festivities continuing after that back at Wolski’s.
A $5 donation — which goes to the St. Hedwig’s Church wheelchair accessibility fund — gets you a commemorative pint glass filled with “I Closed Wolski’s” lager brewed up by Lakefront. There’s food, live music and a nostalgic slide show. And check this out: Lakefront is also selling the limited-edition beer in a 22-ounce bottle with a label that peels off and becomes an “I Closed Wolski’s” bumper sticker. It’s an industry first, they say.
Cool. I'd assume that anyone that has made there way to this here rag has been to Wolski's. Or at least seen the bumper stickers. What about you, have you closed Wolski's?
