For 15 years the Milwaukee School of Engineering’s local radio station, 91.7 WMSE, has been inviting locals to come try out 60+ different chilis from area restaurants and 6 nearby fire departments. Expanded seating this year means more places to plop your backside while enjoying too much chili to finish. Live music, chili pepper races (??) – what a way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Bring non-perishable food items and donate them to the Hunger Task Force for additional chili samples.
2) Make n’ Take: Transferring the Image with Maeve Jackson (12+ age)
Sunday 03/05: Charles Allis Art Museum (Lower East Side); 2pm – 5pm ($25)
Housed in the mansion of one of Milwaukee’s greatest industrial leaders, the Charles Allis Art Museum is more than just a fantastic private/public art collection: they also have been hosting a number of artistic seminars this winter. This weekend, Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design graduate and local artist Maeve Jackson will be teaching the group how to take physical or digital images and turn them into hand-made prints using readily available materials.
I think it’s hilariously-clever that the Great Lakes Hemophilia Foundation puts on Milwaukee’s Best Bloody Mary competition. If you’re into that classic spicy red liquid hangover cure, there’s nowhere else to be this weekend. In fact, you could grab one at brunch beforehand.
NOT TO DO
1) Eat meat on the next 5 Fridays
It’s the most fish fry-est time of the year!
