Sporkies help kick off Fair food season

Food, it’s what’s for dinner, lunch and breakfast at Wisconsin State Fair. Food, and lots of it. Food, that’s - yes, often fried and delicious - but increasingly more creative, unique and full of farm fresh flavors.
Welcome, Wisconsin to The Sporkies or the longer form Golden Spork Awards. New foods are no stranger at the Wisconsin State Fair, which begins Thursday, so today’s Sporkies help provide the encouragement that vendors sometimes need to take their creativity to a new level.
I was honored to be asked to be a “celebrity” judge for today’s event, which was open to the public…

The Janitor’s back, but not for long

Despite the absence of its most beloved and discussed “staffer” — and the one that just might be the creepiest for kids and the faint of heart — Milwaukee Art Museum has remained quite clean lo these past months.
Maybe it’s because Duane Hanson’s life-size 1973 “Janitor” sculpture doesn’t actually do much anyway. He’s the ultimate slacker, leaning there against the wall, staring at the floor, letting his more animated co-workers pick up the slack.
But despite his lack of productivity, folks noticed the Janitor was gone…

Groups work to quell violence in Milwaukee

…Barrett decided to have Ceasefire Sabbath occur every may close to Mother’s Day and before Memorial Day weekend, the beginning of the summer in Milwaukee, after having a conversation with former Supreme Court justice Janine Geske. Geske had worked with people previously incarcerated and found the person who often was able to reach them was their mothers.
The response to Ceasefire Sabbath from faith leaders in Milwaukee has been very positive, according to Barrett.
The mayor’s office also recently launched a new anonymous hotline for residents to report illegal guns. The hotline was created after looking at statistics on shootings to which MPD responded.
Barrett said more shootings were reported to MPD via the Shot Spotter technology — which uses sensors to triangulate the location of shots fired — than through calls to the police department.
"As I delved into that more deeply one of the responses I got was that people were afraid to call in," Barrett said. "And so we thought, ‘Let’s find an anonymous way for people to call in so we can get information on illegal guns’…"

How to drink absinthe the old-ass fashioned way

These days, absinthe has become synonymous with forgotten nights in Paris and foxy green fairies. With my knowledge of the infamous green drink limited to pop culture myths and “Moulin Rouge,” I decided it was time to finally sample absinthe correctly.
So, when I received the Absinthe Set in the mail, I was determined to find out if the spirit matched the hype.
With three 50ml bottles of absinthe at my disposal, I took the deep dive into the big green and drank absinthe the way it was intended to be drunk.
I was totally floored by the setup of this Absinthe Kit…
