TO DO

1) Great Wisconsin Brewery Tour #100 (all ages)
Saturday 03/11: MobCraft Beer (Walker’s Point); 12pm – 3pm (free)

Almost 3 years after starting, The Squeaky Curd is about to visit our 100th brewery in the state of Wisconsin, and we want you our loyal readers to join us! We’re taking the Great Wisconsin Brewery Tour to Milwaukee’s MobCraft Beer in Walker’s Point on Saturday, March 11th.

While we sip on their golden suds, there’ll be games, a special firkin, a new beer release, and food. We’re supplying food for the grill, but we’d love if everyone could bring something else to share as a community potluck. The beer will start flowing right away at noon, though we’ll be celebrating for a while afterwards. Free and open to the public.

2) Dim Sum + Give Some (21+)
Sunday 03/12: Italian Community Center (Third Ward); 3pm – 6pm ($50)

One of Milwaukee’s prized chefs of DanDan has been diagnosed with the rare Kennedy’s Disease, and so our local foodie community is throwing a fundraiser to help support the Kennedy’s Disease Association in finding a cure. Your donation gets you unlimited food, beer, and wine at this cocktail party-style event. “Good food. Good drink. Good cause.”

3) 51st Annual Shamrock Club of Wisconsin St. Patrick’s Day Parade (all ages)
Saturday 03/11: Downtown Milwaukee; 12pm – 3pm (free)

The only thing the Irish love more than drinking (in moderation) and plentiful sunblock is parades. Milwaukee’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade runs through Westown into East Town, and is a raucous and green day. Make a day of it with pre-parade breakfast and booze on the route at Rock Bottom or Mo’s Irish Pub, followed by after-parties at the Shamrock Club of Wisconsin or Leff’s Lucky Town.

NOT TO DO

1) Forget to pace yourself

This isn’t even the actual St Paddy’s Day weekend. We’ve got a lot of drinking ahead of us.
