March in Milwaukee – it’s more than alliteration, it’s guaranteed enjoyment.

With a strong basketball community and vibrant Irish heritage, Milwaukee County is an ideal place to be this month. But even if you are not visiting for holidays or sports, we have an outstanding diversity of activities to make your visit unique and fulfilling.

The month is highlighted by St. Patrick’s Day, with one of the oldest St. Patrick’s parades in the country March 9. If you’re here for St. Patrick’s Day itself, we are home to some of the best Irish pubs in the country, along with other outstanding restaurants, bars, and cafes. The Milwaukee Bucks are in contention for the NBA playoffs. Marquette’s Golden Eagles and the UWM Panthers close out their regular seasons, with Marquette headed for postseason action in the NCAA championships.

No matter what you choose to do in Milwaukee County, I hope you enjoy your time with us. Sincerely,

Chris Abele, Milwaukee County Executive

Milwaukee enjoyed an unusually warm winter last year, but this year the frosty look and feel returned.

No matter what the weather, people in this town get out and enjoy a wide variety of entertainment and activities.

We are particularly proud of the performing arts in Milwaukee. Our symphony, ballet, and professional theatre are top notch. Every week, throughout the winter, our stages come alive with wonderful presentations.

Venues for those performances are remarkable, too. Downtown's historic Pabst Theater, the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, and the Milwaukee Theatre all have rich traditions. We are a community that values the arts. We also enjoy athletic competition. NBA basketball, indoor soccer and college basketball keep our sports arenas busy. Enthusiastic fans keep downtown hopping.

People who live in Milwaukee do not stay home in the winter, and visitors aree encouraged to join the fun. Sincerely,

T To Tom m Barrett, Mayor

Color Rush: the first snapshot of color in American photography THE LATEST special exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Museum showcases the evolution of color photography in America, a groundbreaking look at a medium that continues to fascinate amateurs and artists.

Developed by the museum, Color Rush: 75 Years of Color Photography in America captures the medium’s evolution throughout the first seven decades of the 20th century, exploring the historical developments that led to color photography becoming the norm in popular culture and fine art.

With framed photographs, as well as publications, slide shows, and film clips, the exhibition presents the story of color photography in America as it has never been told before. 8

Color Rush charts—from magazine pages to gallery walls, from advertisements to photojournalism—the interconnected history of color photography in the United States from 1907 to 1981.

“Respectively, these years mark the introduction of the first commercially available color photographic process, the autochrome,” said Lisa Hostetler, cocurator of the exhibition, which will be at the museum through May 19.

The exhibition chronicles the growing acceptance of color photography during those 74 years. Color photography captured the popular imagination through its visibility in magazines such as Life and Vogue, as well as through its accessibility on the marketplace

thanks to companies such as Kodak. At the same time, artists were exploring the potential of color photography for their own creative practice.

The exhibition’s curators are Hostetler, former curator of photographs at the Milwaukee Art Museum and currently McAvoy Family Curator of Photography at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and Katherine A. Bussard, curator of photography with the Princeton University Art Museum.

Among the artists represented in Color Rush are Ansel Adams, Harry Callahan, William Eggleston, Walker Evans, Nan Goldin, Jan Groover, Barbara Kasten, Saul Leiter, Susan Meiselas, Joel Meyerowitz, László Moholy-Nagy, Nickolas Muray, Paul Outerbridge, Eliot Porter, Cindy Sherman, Stephen Shore, Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichen, Joel Sternfeld, and Edward Weston.

Celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2013, the Milwaukee Art Museum collection houses more than 30,000 works, with strengths in 19th- and 20thcentury American and European art, contemporary art, American decorative arts, and folk and selftaught art. The museum campus on the shores of Lake Michigan spans three buildings, including the Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion and the Eero Saarinen-designed Milwaukee County War Memorial Center.

Located at 700 N. Art Museum Dr., the museum is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tues.-Sun., with extended hours until 8 p.m. on Thursdays. General admission, which includes all special exhibitions, is $15 for adults and $12 for students over 12, seniors and active military. There is no admission charge the first Thursday of every month (excluding groups). Visit for more information. Major funding for Color Rush: 75 Years of Color Photography in America was provided by the Herzfeld Foundation. Additional support came from the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Friends of Art, Christine A. Symchych and James P. McNulty, the David C. and Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation, the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation, Kenneth and Christine Tanaka, Mrs. Robert O. Levitt, and the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Photography Council.

LOCATED NORTH of Milwaukee on the Lake Michigan shoreline, Port Washington has always offered a picturesque taste of New England.

A stroll through downtown Port Washington reveals a thriving charter fishing industry, first class marina, historic buildings and a variety of dining options.Visitors returning to Port Washington will notice a renewed Franklin Street, with new sidewalks and year-round planters. There are new shopping options, including charming boutiques and art galleries. Duluth Trading Company, a Wisconsin-based company, selected the former Smith Bros. restaurant site for their second location. The expansive store opened in 2012 and is a regional draw for fans of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apparel.

But there are additional signs of revitalization. Developers are renovating several buildings into complexes that will combine apartment and/or condos with commercial space.

Two other downtown buildings are being restored into the Port Washington Historical Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offices and a museum. The museum, which will include a focus on maritime history, is slated to open in fall 2013.

A new park along the harbor at the south end of downtown will take advantage of Port Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lake views. The park will spring from the coal-barge piers that once served the WE Energies power plant. The plant now uses natural gas turbines.

Remembering all things Pabst this month By ROGER STAFFORD KEY Milwaukee Managing Editor

IN MILWAUKEE, there are many reasons why the birthday of Captain Frederick Pabst, the city’s original beer baron, continues to be celebrated more than a century after his death in 1904.

Consider the Captain’s legacies to his hometown:

• The Pabst Mansion, completed in 1892, continues to take visitors back to America’s Gilded Age when the Captain occupied a spot at the top of the brewing industry. It’s estimated that the Flemish Renaissance home at 2000 W. Wisconsin Ave. would have cost more than $32 million if built today. • Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery, the former corporate headquarters of Pabst Brewing Company, is being meticulously restored by Jim Haertel, who purchased the building in 2001 and turned it into a major visitor attraction. Named for Phillip Best, Pabst’s father-in-law whose original brewery (1844) became Pabst Brewing under the Capt. Pabst, the elaborate headquarters at 901 W. Juneau Ave. was the center of the U.S. brewing industry for decades after the Captain’s death.

• Although largely empty since Pabst Brewing left Milwaukee in 1996, the complex of former brewery buildings is now being restored and occupied by a new tenants. Scheduled to open later this year is the Brewhouse Inn & Suites, a boutique hotel in the building that once was the Pabst brewhouse. Brewing kettles and a two-story stained glass window featuring King Gambrinus, the unofficial patron saint of beer, will remind visitors of the historic setting.

• Other former Pabst buildings surrounding the hotel location already have been restored and are now occupied by apartments, offices, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and Cardinal Stritch University’s College of Education and Leadership.

• The force behind redevelopment of the 21-acre Brewery Works development was Milwaukee philanthropist Joseph Zilber, whose real estate development company acquired the site in 2007. Zilber died in 2010, but his organization continues to develop the site. The Brewery project is just one of the philanthropist’s many contributions to the future of his hometown. Others include major donations to Marquette, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a 10-year commitment aimed at improving the city’s poorest neighborhoods. 26

Events this month that will remind visitors of the Pabst legacy include the celebration of Captain Pabst’s birthday at the Pabst Mansion March 28, featuring $2 tours all day, and Pabst Trivia Night from 6-9 p.m. March 21 at Best Place at the Pabst Brewery.

Here are a few pieces of trivia to give you a head start for Pabst Trivia Night:

• Frederick Pabst was not a military man. “Captain” referred to the fact that he was the captain of a Lake Michigan steamship before marrying the daughter of Milwaukee brewery owner Philip Best. • By 1874, eleven years after Pabst bought a half interest in Phillip Best Brewing, it was the nation’s largest brewer.

• Pabst beer originally was known as Best Beer. The famous Pabst Blue Ribbon name came after the beer was recognized as the top lager beer in brewing competitions that included the famed Chicago World’s Fair of 1893.

• Now based in Los Angeles, Pabst Brewing today is a holding company that contracts with brewers to produce Pabst Blue Ribbon, Schlitz (another historic Milwaukee brand that was once the leading brew in the country) and other labels.

• And last, but far from least, Pabst Blue Ribbon is now brewed to historic specifications by MillerCoors, where else but in its major facility in Milwaukee and other MillerCoors locations. MillerCoors also produces a portion of the Schlitz output in the city that was once described in advertisements as (apologies to Capt. Pabst) “the beer that made Milwaukee Famous.” The Pabst Mansion is open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Mon.- Sat. and noon-4 p.m. Sun. Hourly guided tours are provided on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Self-guided tours are Friday through Monday. Visit for additional information.

Best Place tours are Thursdays at 4 p.m., and at noon, 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Fri.-Sun. The Gift Shop is open Thursday through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For special events and additional information, visit

The Pabst Mansion is on the National Register of Historic Places. Best Place is a certified historic structure on the National Register of Historic Places. All photos in this story are from Best Place.

See real pirate gold, artifacts at Milwaukee Public Museum REAL PIRATES, a National Geographic exhibition featuring treasures from the only authenticated pirate shipwreck found in U.S. waters, will be a top destination for families through May 27 at the Milwaukee Public Museum.

The touring exhibition separates fact from fiction about the pirate trade and gives visitors glimpses into the lives of pirates through artifacts, hands‐on activities, captivating re‐creations, enactors portraying crew members, and a fascinating exploration of underwater archaeology.

The Whydah was located by underwater explorer Barry Clifford in 1984. Clifford is still actively excavating the wreck site and continues to bring treasures to the surface every year.

Visitors learn the captivating true story of the Whydah, one of the most successful pirate ships of the Golden Age of Piracy, from its roots as a slave ship to its takeover and conversion into a pirate ship in the early 1700s.

In addition to displaying centuries‐old artifacts, the exhibition includes hands‐on activities where visitors can raise a pirate flag, tie real sailors' knots, touch real pirate treasure, and look through a telescope to find ships with treasure on board. Visitors also can walk through a re‐creation of the Whydah, explore the roles of the different members of her crew and ask questions of pirate re-enactors strolling through the exhibition. Real Pirates tickets include both admission to the special exhibit and to the Milwaukee Public Museum’s outstanding permanent exhibit galleries.Ticket prices are $24 for adults MondayThursday; $26 for adults Friday- Sunday; $17.50 for children Monday-Thursday and $18.50 for children Friday-Sunday.


The exhibition is open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, with extended hours every Thursday until 8 p.m. The last entry is 60 minutes prior to closing on all dates. Visit for information about the exhibition.

THERE’S one ethnic group that everyone joins this month. The whole town “turns green” during the week preceding March 17, with highlights that include the 47th Shamrock Club St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 9.

Milwaukee’s celebration actually began with a parade in 1843 before incorporation of the city. The 2013 parade starts at noon at the Shops of Grand Avenue, Old World 3rd Street and W. Wisconsin Avenue. Follow Wisconsin Avenue east to Plankinton, north on Plankinton to Kilbourn Avenue, west on Kilbourn to Old World 3rd, north to Juneau Avenue, east to Water Street, then south to Highland Avenue where the parade route ends. Along the parade route, lift a glass at Trinity•Three Irish Pubs and cross the “Irish Intersection” to the Harp. Other spots downtown also plan post-parade parties. The Post-Parade Party is from 1-6 p.m. at the Irish Cultural & Heritage Center, 2133 W. Wisconsin Ave.

On St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, Trinity•Three Irish Pubs at 125 E. Juneau Ave. will open its doors at the traditional 6 a.m. The three-pub location will connect with the Harp, 113 E. Juneau Ave., via a tent that will cross a closed-off Edison Street to join the two businesses. On Milwaukee’s East Side (near UW-Milwaukee) the Black Rose hosts an all-day bash with live music as well. Entertainment info can be found in this month’s Arts & Entertainment listing. And Trinity • Three Irish Pubs gets the nod as Restaurant of the Month.

County Clare Irish Inn & Pub, 1234 N. Astor St., has years of experience celebrating and holds the title for selling more Guinness Stout than anyone else in the state. Live entertainment and revelry run there on March 17 from 10 a.m. until 1 a.m. MillerCoors is sponsoring free bus service on all Milwaukee routes March 17, 6 p.m. until the end of regular service. 1-800-FREE-RIDES 1-800-373-3743, or

IT’S THE MONTH when everyone’s Irish

St. Patrick’s celebrations start with parade


This Irish spot provides three times the fun! TRINITY • THREE IRISH PUBS is exactly that – a trio of connected restaurant/bars at 125 E. Juneau Ave. Visit Foy’s, Gallagher’s and Duffy’s and you will find three distinct pubs. Each has its own unique environment that mirrors a particular kind of pub you might visit in Ireland. Trinity opens its doors every day during the workweek at 11 a.m. and at 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday for Irish Brunch.

Foy’s décor includes framed prints, dark woodwork, and stained glass with Celtic symbols. A four-sided bar is at the center of Foy’s, with comfy booths arranged around it. Settle in here, and you may never want to leave! Signposts in the corner spell out information in English and the Irish language (Gaeilge)…just as you would see in Ireland. 58

A hallway connects the middle pub, Gallagher’s, to the other two pubs. The walls of the hallway recall the artfully stacked “dry stone masonry” that is a treasured memory for every visitor to Ireland. Gallagher’s is the spot for live music. Unique to Gallagher’s is the Jameson Bar, sporting rows of bottles of the famed Irish whiskey.

Step into Duffy’s and you’ll swear you’ve been transported to the Emerald Isle. This intimate space, with bookshelves filled with leather volumes and a corner fireplace, has a patina that seems decades old.

The patio dining season is a couple of months away in Milwaukee. But the patio’s gorgeous stone walls still greet visitors to Trinity • Three Irish Pubs. The

building’s colorful, painted exterior and the Celticstyle lettering on the signs transform the corner of Juneau Avenue and Edison Street into a Dublin intersection. The regular menu at Trinity • Three Irish Pubs features dishes that highlight classic Irish ingredients like Guinness Stout and smoked salmon. Other menu items might be featured at a pub in Ireland, shepard’s pie and fish and chips. That staple of U.S. celebrations of St. Patrick’s Day (corned beef) has been creatively incorporated into a number of dishes. Sample it in Reuben rolls, and Sham’s Irish nachos. The nachos pile thick cut homemade potato chips with cheddar cheese, corned beef, scallions and Thousand Island sour cream sauce. Salads include a grilled chicken Caesar and strawberry pecan salad. The sandwich board features a stacked club, Pot Roast Sandwich, Molly’s Chicken Sandwich and pub cheeseburger. Weekends, a special brunch menu is served 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Options include the breakfast you would find in an Irish guesthouse. Come hungry to enjoy two fried eggs served with Irish bacon, sausage, Trinity potatoes, roasted tomato and toast. Or, try an Irish take on two brunch favorites – smoked salmon Benedict or Bailey’s French toast. Other options include corned beef hash or ham and white cheddar omelet. Need an eyeopener of the alcoholic variety? We recommend the fabulous Bloody Mary. Trinity’s version includes a splash of Guinness.

While draft beers here include Guinness, Harp, Smithwicks and Strongbow, local brew-heads would advise the sampling of Water Street Brewery Beers as well – ask what beers by this local micro brewer are available. This wouldn’t be a true Irish gathering place without live music. Popular local acts are featured at 10 p.m. every Friday and Saturday, and during March even more is planned (see our St. Patrick’s events and After Dark features). Regular hours are 11 a.m. to bar close Monday through Friday and10 a.m.-bar close on Saturday and Sunday. For more information, phone 414-278-7033 or visit
