Milwaukee mumblings heard across the Twittersphere
Blatz Cave to close
Joe Woelfle, @BlatzLiquor and owner of Blatz Liquor 121 N. Broadway, announced earlier this week via Twitter and a blog post that due to increased monthly costs and a leveling of sales, the store will close.
“It breaks my heart to have to do this, since day one at Chicago Ave. Liquor I had planned on opening a store downtown that catered to all the beer geeks and people that enjoy a glass of wine or a mixed cocktail like myself,” Woelfle said in his post. “I’ve sacrificed emotionally, physically, financially and loved every second of it.”
Woelfle also announced he wants to sell everything in the store over the next two weeks.
“The balance of the bank note is still fairly significant. However if we can sell our entire inventory, shelves, wine racks and cooler it should be a doable amount,” Woelfle said in his post. “I know you all drink, or know people that drink, or need a 12? x 20? walk in beer cooler…”

Flood victims unite
Milwaukee Flood Victim Tim Cigelski, @TeecycleTim‘s home suffered significant damage during the July floods. Local bloggers and twitter mavens Sue Spaight (@suespaight), and Katie Klein-Murphy (@bootyp) have launched the #SaveTeecycle initiative and fundraising event on Saturday, Sept. 18 at Sprecher Brewery (www.saveteecycle.org) to help Cigelski and other Milwaukee flood victims. Due to the outpouring of support for himself and his family Cigelski has also announced he will host a four mile “Runraiser” event for his neighbor Fran Verito, who also experienced extensive damage during the flood. Proceeds from the event will go towards Verito’s home repairs, and the American Red Cross to help other flood victims. The event will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 8 at 7 p.m. and will begin at InStep Running and Walking Store’s Third Ward location, 403 E. Buffalo St.
