It’s finally that time of year again, summer time! As the sun shines down on the county, it’s time to get outdoors and experience everything Milwaukee County has to offer.

Milwaukee host many festivals each month. June starts off with PrideFest, followed by Polish Fest. Be sure to also check out Locust Street Festival, Summer Soulstice festival and the Lakefront Festival of Art, which has been named one of the top 25 art festivals in the country and is a great opportunity to enjoy the lakefront and the Milwaukee Art Museum. Let’s not forget about all the wonderful things the Milwaukee parks have offer. Head to Bradford Beach for volleyball games or to build a sandcastle with your family. From golf courses to bike and hiking paths to sun-filled picnic areas, our Milwaukee County Parks have something for everyone!

Wherever your summer may take you, KEY Milwaukee is a great resource for helping you plan your adventures. Sincerely,

Chris Abele, Milwaukee County Executive

The festival season in Milwaukee is underway. It's a time to celebrate the variety of cultures, art, entertainment and cuisine that people from around the world have brought to Milwaukee.

A number of factors contribute to the success of festivals in Milwaukee. We have splendid locations at our lakefront and downtown to hold big events. We have visitors and locals who turn out every year. Perhaps most importantly, we have dedicated volunteers who make sure the traditions continue.

The cultural festivals in Milwaukee honor traditions and celebrate the arts. Unique dance and musical performances, history and great food are all shared with festival goers.

While many attendees have family connections to the celebrated cultures, the festivals embrace everyone. We celebrate our family roots and we invite everyone to join in! Sincerely,

Tom Barrett, Mayor

Key COVER FEATURE

Polish Fest celebrates with fun and culture at the lakefront FOR THE 33rd YEAR, Polish Fest kicks off Milwaukee’s unique series of summer ethnic festivals June 13-15 at Maier Festival Park (Summerfest grounds) on Lake Michigan.

Recognized as the largest celebration of Polish culture in the U.S., the three-day festival features food, music and dance with five stages of entertainment. Hours of the festival are noon to midnight Friday and Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday.

At 10:30 p.m. on Saturday night, the “Big Boomski” presented by Planners Financial Group, LLC, brings fabulous fireworks to the lakefront.

Non-stop music Participation is the name of the game at the NonStop Polka stage, with groups like The Knewz from New York, the Polka Country Musicians from Connecticut and The Polka Family Band from Pennsylvania. 8

Headlining the Miller Contemporary Stage are popular groups like 18-time Grammy winner Jimmy Sturr and his Orchestra from New York with special guest Chris Caffery of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and John Gorá & Gorále from Canada.

Performers on the Sobieski Vodka Cultural Stage include the Syrena & Syrenka Polish Folk Dance Ensemble, Polonez Dance Ensemble and Lajkonik Song & Dance Ensemble. Also firing up the audience are Polish contemporary groups Marcus Band and the Happy Singers.

The Children’s Stage keeps youngsters busy with acts like Magician David Seebach, Jim Krzewski (the Spoon Man) and Julie Sobanski, Princess of Magic.

Great food, vodka tastings,Tyskie Beer More than 20 different restaurants are represented at the festival, offering ethnic specialties like Polish sausage; pierogi made of meat, cheese and potato;


potato pancakes and hunter’s stew. Well-known Milwaukee restaurants like Old World Deli and Polonez are represented, with others like St. Francis Brewery and Saz’s State House providing variety.

Tyskie beer, shipped to Milwaukee from Poland, quenches festgoers’ thirst through a cooperative arrangement with MillerCoors. Polish Fest is the only ethnic festival to directly import beer for its event. Enjoy a Tyskie beer in the new Tyskie Beer Garden. Some of Poland’s finest vodkas, including Sobieski, as well as meads and liqueurs, tantalize at tastings. Sobieski vodkas are featured at the Sobieski Vodka bars and the Sobieski Vodka Lounge as well as in Jimmy Luv’s Bloody Marys. These ethnic specialties can be purchased throughout the festival. At cooking demonstrations, expert cooks prepare Polish favorites.

Cultural delights At Polish Fest’s Cultural Village, artists demonstrate traditional crafts – woodcarving, paper cutting (wycinanki), decorating eggs (pisanki) and metalworking. Polish painters display their work in a market square.

Back again are Polish Sheepdogs, including Highland (Tatra). Experts from the Polish Genealogical Society of America help visitors trace their roots. At the Polish Forum, local historians speak about Polish related history in Milwaukee and abroad.

At the Sukiennice or outdoor marketplace, tempting treasures for purchase include beautiful amber jewelry, Boleslawiec pottery, blown glass ornaments, Polish crystal, hand-carved wooden boxes and many festival souvenirs.

The 16th Annual Chopin Youth Piano Competition, scheduled on Sunday from 3-8 p.m., provides a unique performance opportunity for talented young pianists to showcase the music of Poland's beloved composer.

Lakefront Festival of Art June 20-22 THE LAKEFRONT FESTIVAL OF ART celebrates its 52nd year this summer, filling the grounds of the Milwaukee Art Museum with art and activities for the whole family Friday, June 20, through Sunday, June 22.

With works by more than 175 jury-selected artists from across the country, the festival is recognized as one of the top 20 art festivals in the country by Art Fair Sourcebook.

State-of-the-art tents shelter the artists’ booths, allowing one-on-one discussions with exhibitors, who include jewelers, painters, sculptors, photographers, metalworkers and more. The festival also offers family-friendly activities, live music, refreshments and the PNC Children’s Experience. Options include drama performances and hands-on art projects designed for kids of all ages. And admission to the festival includes admission to the museum’s exhibitions and galleries.

Adults can relax at the Milwaukee Magazine Wine Garden or the Blue Moon Beer sampling area. For a change of pace, there’s a sculpture garden created by Hawks Landscape to stroll through and a silent auction of artist-donated works to bid on.

Funds raised from the festival support the museum’s world-class exhibitions, including the summer’s featured exhibition, Kandinsky: A Retrospective, which showcases 100 works of art from modern master Wassily Kandinsky.

“Over the past 50 years, the festival proceeds have helped the museum acquire more than 250 new works of art and supported countless exhibitions,” said Dan Keegan, director of the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Festival hours are 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. Advance tickets are $10. At the gate, admission is $17 for adults, $14 for seniors and students, $10 for museum members and free for kids age 12 and under, veterans, active military and Wisconsin K-12 teachers (with ID). There also is a $25 three-day pass available for purchase online and at the festival gates.

Festival tickets can be purchased at lfoa.mam.org and at participating locations throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.

The Lakefront Festival of Art is presented by Milwaukee Magazine and Quad/Graphics, with additional support provided by PNC Financial Services Group, Baker Tilly, Blue Moon, Hawks Landscape, Schlossmann Auto Group, Potawatomi Bingo Casino, Pick ‘n Save, ShopKeep POS, Danny Vegh’s, Adelman Travel Group, 88.9 Radio Milwaukee, OnMilwaukee.com, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Nelson Schmidt Inc.

The event is dedicated to the memory of Betty Quadracci, Milwaukee business owner and philanthropist, and a longtime museum donor, supporter, and Board of Trustees Member.

KEY GOLF START TO FINISH Southeastern Wisconsin’s best 1st and 18th holes By JERRY SLASKE KEY Milwaukee Golf Editor

HELLO Challenging 1st holes often begin great rounds: Blackwolf Run (Meadow Valleys), 392 yards, par 4 (800-344-2838) americanclubresort.com/golf Appropriately called the Fishing Hole, this dogleg right with water all along the right side will test your mettle right out of the box. It gets your attention because you have to flirt with the water no matter what line you choose. Trying to play safe by going left means you end up in some bothersome grass moguls. Brown Deer, 461 yards, par 4 (414-352-8080) milwaukeecountygolfcourses.com/golf/proto Without a doubt, the best opening hole in the region. A dogleg right that is nicely framed on both sides by towering trees with a pond at the turn on the left side about 300 yards from the tee. No gimmicks or surprises at this fine traditional parkland course that Golf Week magazine several years ago ranked as the 46th best municipal track in the country. The Bull at Pinehurst Farms, 424 yards, par 4 (920-467-1500) golfthebull.com This hole is like a savory appetizer at a fine restaurant; you can’t wait for the main course. The straight par 4 (424 yards) features fairway bunkers on the right at the beginning of a shallow basin leading up to a front-to-back sloping green shielded by a large, deep bunker. It’s an excellent first step in the ladder of difficulty at this Jack Nicklaus Signature Course. Nagawaukee, 415 yards, par 4 (262-367-2153) golfwaukeshacounty.com/nwm_course A dogleg left with a bunker (about 240 yards out) and trees located at the turn. The fairway is lined on both sides by mature trees. After the turn the hole meanders downhill to a huge green – characteristic of this course – that slopes from back to front and is bunkered on the left. Washington County, 417 yards, par 4 (262-670-6616) golfwcgc.com Straight with a wide fairway that slopes to the left with bunkers lurking on both sides to swallow your tee shot. Your second shot is

38

awkward because the fairway slopes to the left and because the green, which is longer than it is wide, sits at an odd angle and falls off to both sides. The Arthur Hills links design was ranked recently by Golf Week as the nation’s 24th best municipal course. Whispering Springs, 435 yards, par 4 (920-921-8053) whisperingspringsgolf.com/golf/proto/whisperingspringsgolf Straightforward hole lined on the left by towering trees and on the right by rough, with bunkers on each side of the undulating fairway about 280 yards out. Your second shot is to a well-bunkered, backto-front sloping green. Even though this hole looks relatively benign from the tee, it is one tough hole on a course that is one of the toughest – and best values – in the state.

GOODBYE Here are some of the area’s best 18th holes: Blackwolf Run (River), 510 yards, par 4 (855-444-2838) americanclubresort.com/golf This history-making hole from the 1998 US Women’s Open requires a long drive down the right center to give you at least a chance…albeit a small one…at getting to the green in two. The entire left side from tee to green is a sunken waste area, which was filled with water for the 1998 and 2012 US Women’s Opens. Brighton Dale (Blue Spruce), 355 yards, par 4 (262-878-1440) golfbrightondale.com A sharp dogleg (actually 90 degrees) left about 240 yards out with water all along the left side. Go right off the tee and you could have some tree problems; go through the fairway and you might not have a shot at all. A rather large undulating green is protected on the three sides by bunkers. Brown Deer, 557 yards, par 5 (414-352-8080) milwaukeecountygolfcourses.com/golf/proto With a creek crossing the fairway about 230 yards from the tee, a solid drive is imperative on this uphill, relatively narrow hole. Get in the trees on the right and a bogey will be a good score. Avoid traps on the right on your second shot and hit to a yardage so that you’ll have a full swing on your third, especially when the pin is on the right side just over a deep bunker.


The Bull at Pinehurst Farms, 485 yards, par 4 (920-467-1500) golfthebull.com A double dogleg requiring a long drive that must be in the fairway and must slice off as much of the water as possible for even an outside chance of hitting a wide and shallow green. Reasonable golfers should play their second shot to the left of the water and marsh in front of the green, leaving a chip and hopefully one putt. Going at this green in two demands a perfect second shot, assuming you had a perfect drive.

The Oaks, 547 yards, par 5 (608-837-4774) golftheoaks.com A double dogleg requires a good drive and an even better second shot to position yourself to go at the elevated green with a short or medium iron. The second shot needs to be in the middle or on the left side of the fairway, but don’t go too far left because there’s a marsh lurking over there. The relatively flat green is fronted by water and several deep traps.

Ironwood (#9 Meath), 411 yards, par 4 (262-538-9900) ironwoodgolfcourse.com Avoid the traps on both sides of the fairway with your drive which needs to be long to have a medium iron (or long iron if the wind is against you) to a large green that slopes from back to front and is guarded on the right by traps.

Washington County, 405 yards, par 4 (262-670-6616) golfwcgc.com An uphill dogleg left hole that always seems to be into the wind. Two large, deep traps are located on the fairway’s left side at the turn. Get in those traps and you have little or no chance of reaching a long narrow green guarded by traps on the right front and along the entire left side.

Kettle Hills (#9 Woods), 551 yards, par 5 (262-628-0200) kettlehills.com Gimmicky…maybe, but still challenging and fun. A double dogleg that demands a long straight drive uphill to position yourself for an accurate second shot to the top of a ridge. Make sure you have the right club for that second shot and stay right, but not too far right because there are trees. Go left and you’re stymied. Your third shot is severely downhill to a green that slopes from right to left alongside a hill on the right and a dropoff to a marsh on the left.

Whispering Springs, 529 yards, par 5 (920-921-8053) whisperingspringsgolf.com Accuracy is the keyword on this beautifully tree-lined (on both sides) hole that doglegs and slopes to the left about 140 yards from the green. Your second shot needs to be center or right-of center to put yourself in position for a short iron over water and a deep trap guarding the front of a shallow green that slopes back to front. Should your second shot go too far left, chances are you won’t have a go at the green.

Brewers cool off after best start ever

THE MILWAUKEE BREWERS were expected to be an improved team in 2014, but even the most optimistic observers were surprised at the team’s fast start.

After setting a record for the best start in franchise history, the Brewers proved mortal in late May after experiencing injuries to key players and subpar performances by younger players called up to fill in for the veterans.

Centerfielder Carlos Gomez, catcher Jonathan Lucroy, third-baseman Aramis Ramirez and rightfielder Ryan Braun are leading the Brewers offense.

Regardless of the weather, the retractable roof of Miller Park ensures that all Brewers home games are played.

Attendance at Brewers games is high throughout the season with many sold-out games. Tickets are available at MilwaukeeBrewers.com. Be sure to

Louise’s

Key RESTAURANT OF THE MONTH COMBINING THE TRADITIONS of Italian cooking with California innovation, Louise’s offers a diverse menu in a modern, upscale atmosphere. While the innovative cuisine at Louise’s makes this a popular choice for lunch and dinner, the urban-chic design and décor also make it the perfect late night destination for cocktails, martinis and decadent desserts.

There are two convenient locations to choose from. Downtown, Louise’s is located across from Cathedral Square Park in the heart of downtown at 801 N. Jefferson St. The floor-to ceiling windows afford beautiful views of Cathedral Square Park by day and by night.

Louise’s Brookfield location at 275 Regency Ct. (190th and Bluemound Rd.) makes it convenient for those staying in the many hotels west of the city, visiting the Milwaukee County Zoo, or shopping Brookfield’s many options along Bluemound Road and at Brookfield Square Shopping Center.

Visit the restaurants, and find an eclectic menu that offers starters such as steamed mussels, bruschetta with fresh tomatoes and fried calamari. The saladlovers we know insist that Louise’s serves some of the best in town. Barbecue Chicken Chop and the Caesar Salad with Grilled Jumbo Citrus Shrimp are just two options.

Traditional pastas such as Rigatoni with Grilled Vegetables are joined by Louise’s homemade fresh pastas and specialties. Fresh pastas are made daily at Louise’s. For example, Tortelloni Vegetali features handmade Tortelloni filled with fresh seasonal vegetables and cheeses. Asparagus Mushroom Ravioli is handmade and filled with fresh asparagus, mushrooms, and cheese in a pesto cream sauce. On the seafood side, options range from Jumbo Garlic Shrimp Pasta to Cioppino. Poultry and beef choices include the traditional Chicken Marsala and innovative Chianti braised short ribs.

Louise’s pizzas are worth a visit! The traditional-style are made by hand with a medium thin crust that is baked to crispy perfection. Another Louise’s difference is the tomato sauce, made fresh daily. Choose traditional toppings, get creative with grilled eggplant or fresh pineapple, or opt for “gourmet toppings” such as Shitake mushrooms. 58

California Pizzas feature a crust made with corn meal and semolina dough, with a variety of nontraditional sauces and gourmet toppings. We like the roasted cherry tomato version with red and yellow cherry tomatoes, and basil. Or, create your own calzone from Louise’s regular or gourmet pizza toppings.

Weekend Brunch is becoming a favorite way to slow-down and catch-up with friends and family. Here, choose from omelettes, frittatas (the Italian take on eggs) and several versions of Eggs Benedict. Bananas Foster French Toast is decadent but delicious – three slices of French toast flambéed. with rum, butter, brown sugar and bananas. Accompany with your choice of “eye opener,” coffee and Bailey’s, Bloody Mary, Screw Driver, Breakfast Martini, Mimosa, or Champagne Split.

It can be difficult to find a kid–friendly restaurant that also offers food that parents crave, but Louise’s offers a children’s menu that makes it a great choice for family dining. If you’re planning a special occasion or corporate event, Louise’s has a private dining facility at both locations, as well as an off-premise catering and events division. Louise’s is open daily at 11 a.m. Weekend brunch begins at 10 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Delivery is available. Contact Louise’s Downtown, 801 N. Jefferson St., at 414-273-4224 and Louise’s Brookfield, 190th and Bluemound, at 262-784-4275. Visit online at www.louiseswisconsin.com

KEY’S SUMMERFEST TIPS

WHILE MEGA MUSIC FESTIVALS continue to grow in popularity around the country, anyone from Milwaukee will tell you: Summerfest is the original.

It's still one of the best, even if it's missing some things you'll find at other fests. There are no overwhelming crowds like Lollapalooza. You can't wander through a near-riot like at SXSW. You won't have to barter with some guy to use an overfull Porta-John like at Coachella– there are honest-to-God bathrooms.

And with what might be one of the best headlining lineups yet, there's never been a better time to take in the fest. More than 800 acts will play over the 11 days of Summerfest this year. That tyranny of choices can seem a bit overwhelming, so here are a few pieces of advice for first-timers:

Plan Your Attack

With so many acts playing The Big Gig, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Luckily, you can build a customized schedule on the Summerfest website (summerfest.com). It's best to start with the headliners to see where you want to end your night, then plan backwards from there.

Getting There

The roads nearby the Summerfest Grounds are a stream of swerving pedestrians, Harleys and cars. There's parking available, but other options are worth investigating.

If you're driving in from outside the city, consider parking in the suburbs and taking a Freeway Flyer to the fest (info at RideMCTS.com). Just make sure you keep track of the bus number and get to the shuttle area outside the main gate before the last ones leave at 12:30 p.m. There are quite a few local bars offering shuttles to and from Summerfest throughout the day. Again, make a note of where

BARS & CLUBS

TRY YOUR LUCK at POTAWATOMI BINGO CASINO 1721 W. Canal St. 645-6888 or visit www.paysbig.com. Located minutes from downtown and open 24 hours a day. In addition to gambling and top-name entertainment, the Casino’s Fire Pit is a top sports bar.

FOR A GOOD LAUGH…COMEDYSPORTZ 420 S. 1st St. 414-272-8888. Milwaukee’s longest-running comedy show offers improv comedy for all ages.

their pickup location is and when the last shuttle leaves. This is a good way to keep the party going, as the festival ends around midnight but bars are open until 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 2:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Oh, and this goes without saying, but don't drink and drive–grab a cab or a designated driver.

Stake Your Claim

In some respects, Summerfest is one of the most orderly festivals in the country. A big part of this is that rows of bleachers sit in front of the ground stages. So if you're not a fan of snuggling with sweaty strangers, you're in luck. This also makes it impossible to show up at the last minute to a big-name act and get a front-row view. So get there early with your group, secure a spot, and send people out in shifts to get refreshments and scope out any other acts.

Stop, Plop, & Listen

With so many options, it’s tempting to focus on a headlining act or make lap after lap around the festival grounds like you’re in the Indy 500. If you ever feel bored or lost, your best option is to head towards whichever stage best reflects your particular tastes. Or even better, head towards the KNE New Music Stage and support some local Milwaukee (and Midwestern) bands. What these acts lack in notoriety they make up for with energy.

Have Fun & Keep Your Cool

Between the high temperatures and volumes of beer consumed, bodies and tempers can get hot at Summerfest. Make sure you drink plenty of hops-free H20 during the day. Be polite to strangers. Be wary of wobbly drunks and guys with their shirts off. Unless that guy is you, in which case: rock on. Do you have any Summerfest tips?
