*Just in case you didn’t already have plans for the next few days (as if, you popular person, you), here’s your list of 3 things to do in Milwaukee this weekend…and 1 not to do.*
1) 4th Annual Milwaukee Coffee Festival (all ages)
Saturday 11/05: Urban Ecology Center – Riverside Park; 10am – 3pm
After a Friday night of indulging in Milwaukee’s free-flowing beer, you’ll need a little pick-me-up of our next favorite brew Saturday morning. The Milwaukee Coffee Festival is back with tons of coffee tastings, classes on how to buy, brew, and pour, and probably the peppiest crowd you’ve ever encountered. $10 pre-registration or $15 at the door.
2) Grace Fine Art & Craft Festival (all ages)
Sunday 11/06: Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church; 9am – 3pm
If you’re wandering around the downtown area this Saturday, stroll on in to Grace Lutheran’s (10th annual?) Fine Art & Craft Festival. This free event features 25+ local artisans hocking their unique and one-of-a-kind wares. Knock some Christmas shopping off your list early. Free pizza after noon!
3) SAVOR Milwaukee (21+)
Saturday 11/05: Wisconsin Center; 11am – 5pm
Sunday 11/06: 12pm – 4pm
The former “Wine & Dine” event has been rebranded this year as SAVOR Milwaukee, “The Wine, Beer, & Food Festival”. Though tickets are a little pricey starting at $45, that gets you unlimited tastings from 50 restaurants, 73 beer brands, 16 wineries, and 29 spirits brands. If you can handle that much without falling over.
Also, they’ve got something called “Cheese Island” so I know where I’m retiring to.
