1) SUMMERFEST (all ages)
All weekend: Henry Maier Festival Grounds (Third Ward); 12:00pm – 12am ($20)
It’s Summerfest, folks. If you’re not doing this, then you’re not doing Milwaukee summers right. Make sure to check out each of our breakdowns of bands to see over the next 11 days: Days 1-3, Days 4-6, Days 7-9, Days 10-11.
The fabled Bay View beer bar Burnhearts throws twin block parties each year: deep-winter Mitten Fest and this weekend’s much-warmer Pabst Street Fest. Come enjoy a cold PBR with some neighbors and music. Wouldn’t you be doing that anyway this Saturday?
If you’ve ever driven by Veterans Park on the lakefront on a weekend, you’ve probably noticed a number of people practicing rugby. I don’t know when Milwaukee became such a hotbed for this odd sport, but this weekend you can check out some 7-a-side amateur teams play actual games in the park.
NOT TO DO
1) Get grease on your shirt while grilling
Safety first, style second. #VeraLyfe
