One hopes that the attendees, at the very least, sampled some of Milwaukee's
beer ("What made Milwaukee famous...") in one or more of the local imbiberies
(apprently and iirc, there is a beer joint in every block...?!) as well as the
great German/Polish food available in the city...!

Things to do whilst in Milwaukee:
1) Visit antique/flea markets (Cedarburg is one, Mukwanago another...)! NYRL
discs used to abound in the district...

2) Drop in on at least one "local"...! There may still be a few which
offer live polka-band music on week-end evenings...

3) Have a German/Polish meal! I forget the name of the famous German
restaurant, but I do recall it as being both affordable and offering
great food!

3.1) Drop by my brother Chris's abode at 8711 West Schlinger (just
across the line in West Allis) and tell him "Clyde" sez hello...
