I am proud to be part of an effort started by Alderman Jim Shelenske to help businesses affected by Friday and Saturday’s water emergency.
The South Milwaukee Chamber of Commerce and South Milwaukee Downtown Market are teaming up to encourage area residents to patronize South Milwaukee bars and restaurants affected by the city’s water problems of the past two days.
The Chamber has declared Thursday and Friday, February 11 and 12, “Fresh Water Days” in South Milwaukee and is working with the Downtown Market to give people two big incentives to eat out or get a drink on those days.
- As part of the promotion, customers of South Milwaukee bars and restaurants showing a “Fresh Water Days” sign can take advantage of meal or drink specials made available only as part of the promotion.
- Also, the South Milwaukee Downtown Market – the city’s successful farmers’ market – is offering ten $20 gift cards for use at the market when it returns to 11th and Milwaukee Avenues this summer. Only people eating or drinking at South Milwaukee bars and restaurants taking part in the “Fresh Water Days” promotion can win the gift certificates. Entries can be made at participating establishments.
You can read the whole press release here. Be sure to check Jim’s website at www.southmilwaukee.org throughout the week for a list of bars and restaurants taking part.
And we need your help, of course: Please dine out this Thursday or Friday in South Milwaukee … and ask others to do the same. Let’s step up and support local business!
