The Milwaukee Press club will host a 165th birthday celebration for the City of Milwaukee at Potawatomi Bingo and Casino on Tuesday, Jan. 25 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The party will celebrate Milwaukee neighborhoods with neighborhood inspired food and beverages, live local music and giveaways in a ‘block party’ atmosphere.
"If there’s anything that has been and continues to be crucial to the development and growth of the City of Milwaukee, it’s our unique and diverse neighborhoods,” said Kathy Mykleby, president of The Milwaukee Press Club and WISN-TV Channel 12 anchor. “Where better to celebrate our City and our neighborhoods than with your neighbors at an event that truly does bring a cross-section of people from the business, government, civic, arts, education, nonprofit communities in our City.”
As part of the celebration, The Milwaukee Press Club with assistance from Milwaukee Historian John Gurda and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel neighborhoods reporter Tom Tolan, will also unveil the ultimate Milwaukee neighborhood trivia contest on Monday, Jan. 10. Contestants will be challenged in their knowledge of historical, fun and quirky trivia regarding Milwaukee’s many neighborhoods. The winner will be announced at the party.
Tickets are $25 per person and can be purchased at www.milwaukeepressclub.org.
