“Cheeseheads” Hits The Big Time On Fox 6 News

Jeff FB Hat

One of my most fascinating interviews to date was with Tom Pipines of Fox 6 News in Milwaukee.  By interviews I mean he interviewed me.  And the reason it was so fascinating was because he taught me how to really evoke something special from your subject without asking much at all.  He knew exactly what to … Continue reading

The Man Behind That Cheeseheads Movie Got On WTMJ 620

WTMJ And Me 01

Thanks to John Mercure and all of the great people on WTMJ 620 Wisconsin Afternoon News (thanks Erin for the extra effort), we were able to get on the Wisconsin Afternoon News segment of WTMJ 620 for a fun five minute interview about the documentary and the journey it took to make it.  I had … Continue reading

Stradivarius Stolen In Milwaukee

Stradivarius Six Million

Okay, not something to be proud of.  Hope they catch who did it.  But it is a bit humorous that the thief was decent enough to use a stun gun and not a hand gun with bullets. Theft of Stradivarius violin was for money, not possession, experts say. via Theft of Stradivarius violin was for … Continue reading

The Tripoli Shrine Center In Milwaukee

Tripoli Shrine FRONT

I took these shots on a snowy, gloomy day, so they don’t even come close to the dazzling nature of the Tripoli Shrine Center in Milwaukee.  Didn’t get a chance to go inside, which I hear is even more astounding, but will get around to that next time in Milwaukee. From the Tripoli Shrine Center … Continue reading

Does That Make It His Eleventy-Squaredth Birthday? (Humor)

JRR Tolkien BD Cropped

Since Wisconsin does have an intimate and direct connection with Tolkien, Lord Of The Rings, and The Hobbit, that being the original manuscripts are permenantly archived at Marquette University, it only seems fitting to re-post this rather humorous  page from a fellow Cheesehead who’s site is well worth checking out for his sense of humor … Continue reading

John Hawks Pub in Milwaukee

John Hawks Pub 01

Whenever I’ve got to Downtown Milwaukee to meet with my man Carlo at Marcus Theatres, we step downstairs to the John Hawks Brew Pub from some great English fair (or fish fry on the one Friday I was there).  Love this place.  Great food, great view of the river, espeecially if you sit out on … Continue reading

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett Talks Sports, Art & Wisconsin Nice

Tom Barrett Screen Shot Web

I had the pleasure of interviewing Tom Barrett as well last fall (long before the recall election) and he gave some interesting insights on our love of arts, sports, and of course the Wisconsin Nice we are all so familiar with.  It was another great interview for the documentary and will likely be a great … Continue reading

Milwaukee Center, The Pabst Theatre & Milwaukee Rep

Milwaukee Center 08

The Milwaukee Center is quite an amazing place to visit.  Located just across from city hall, this is where we were at for the Lombardi play opening night last November.  It has a lot of other cool elements including the Milwaukee Repetory Theater and the legendary Pabst Theatre.  Plus right across the stree, hidden in … Continue reading

Milwaukee’s Mitchell Park Domes: The Finally

Dome Interior 08

I had posted about the Mitchell Park Domes a couple of times prior but realize that interior shots of the place where never posted.  Since the topic has been covered in words, just enjoy the pictures this time around. * * * * * *

Wisconsin Cheese Mart In Milwaukee

Wisconsin Cheese Mart 01

Wisconsin Cheese Mart in Milwaukee (just down the street from Usingers) is the kind of cheese shop that John Cleese would be more than welcomed to visit since they have nearly every kind of cheese he could possibly list off.  Not only that, most of the cheeses here are many of the Wisconsin originals made … Continue reading

Usingers Sausages: Famous For A Reason

Usingers 02

While some of these photos are from last fall when we visited Usingers Famous Sausages, we also had the cahnce to try some more of it this weekend when first arriving in Milwaukee and it’s pretty clear that they know what they are doing.  My personal favorite was the smoked Canadian Bacon (had no idea … Continue reading
