OK … so I lied about taking a few days off from blogging 🙂 See you Saturday!
Just a quick reminder that I’m hosting my next Meet the Mayor session this Saturday, March 26, at South Milwaukee’s newest tavern – The Tap Room.
Join me from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 1301 Milwaukee Ave. and see what Ryan and his team have done with the place. It’s impressive.
Bring your questions, comments or concerns, check out some March Madness, and grab a beer and lunch while you’re there.
Thanks to the folks at The Tap Room for hosting!
And mark your calendars for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, when Revolution Hair Studio, 1017 Milwaukee Ave., is hosting my next Meet the Mayor session.
Thanks to Steve Fenno for hosting me at today’s Meet the Mayor session — and thanks for supporting small business at his self-described business incubator at 916 Milwaukee Ave.
Rocket apparel. Antiques. Disc golf accessories. Signs. Unique woodworking gifts. Firearm safety training. Dry cleaning. There’s even a guy in the basement who makes fishing lures.
In all, there are more than 10 small businesses located in this historic building in the heart of downtown, and it was great to meet so many people working to deliver unique goods and services through a really unique property.
Steve describes the Doyle and Fenno building as a “small business incubator center.”
He writes: “The focus is on a safe, clean, attractive facility with reasonable rates to allow small businesses to flourish in our city. The building owners and tenants consider themselves to be partners, working hard together to help each little business succeed. Thankfully, we are fortunate to have a business-friendly city government, which we also consider a partner in this endeavor.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself. Here are a few photos from today …
My next Meet the Mayor session is this Saturday, November 14, at one of the more unique properties downtown.
It’s the Fenno building, 916 Milwaukee Ave.
This building is home to a variety of small businesses — including a few that I bet you didn’t know about: Memory Lane Antiques and Grandma’s Attic, Acetime Disc Golf, Dynamic Sign and Graphix, Styled Aesthetic, Wolf’s Dry Cleaners and more.
Be sure to stop by between 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and, check out the local businesses and discuss what’s on your mind.
My door is open!
