1) Smokey’s 17th Birthday Celebration (all ages)
Saturday 01/20: Black Husky Brewing (Riverwest); 12pm – 10pm (free)

There’s more to love at Black Husky Brewing than just their fantastic Northwoods beer: namely, their pack of beautiful dogs. Come join the brewing crew to celebrate 17 (human) years of their dog Smokey with a new beer release, a smoked-food potluck, and birthday cheesecake. And beer. And petting.

The beautiful Milwaukee County Historical Society is opening its 2018 season with a featured exhibit on the history of our city’s sports teams. We wrote a whole article about the not-so-great Milwaukee Badgers pro football team, but who were the Milwaukee Bears, Bavarians, Bonecrushers, Hawks, Does, Chiefs, and Chicks?

3) The 3rd Annual Punk Rock for Socks (21+)
Saturday 01/20: Sabbatic (Walker’s Point); 8pm – 2am (donations)

Who knew punk rockers loved socks so much? Sabbatic bar did, and that’s why they’re back with a third year of their successful fundraising effort supporting Robyn’s Nest at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Stop on in this Saturday for all-you-can-jam local punk bands, and leave your toddler to adult socks behind for a good cause.


1) Feel too overwhelmed by life

Just remember: you didn’t have to unpack hundreds of boxes today after lightning struck your house and burned a giant hole in the roof above your bed and you waited 6 months for renovations to be complete to move back into your home. Ted did, and he looks in great spirits.
