A Dinner with Kyle Cherek—The Evolution of Rock & Roll
Monday Evening

Between London’s British Invasion, San Francisco’s Cultural Revolution and New York’s punk rock scene, rock and roll radically altered the history of modern music. Kyle Cherek, culinary historian and PBS host of Wisconsin Foodie, paired a unique five-course rock and roll-inspired dinner with incredible, unsung stories that defined the rock and roll genre.

BBQ, Bourbon & Beer Dinner Tour
Tuesday Evening

When you think of Milwaukee, you might think of brats and cheese curds… but that didn’t stop us from seeking out the best of Milwaukee's BBQ scene.  Narrated fun brought three stops for BBQ, each location paired with a bourbon-inspired drink, craft beer or soda - transportation was included!
