Even the butler may be tonight's murderer. The possible reasons run the gamut... revenge, greed, passion, jealously, and ambition.  The Fundraiser will include an interactive play where patrons can act as detectives and suspects. Hors d'cuerves will be served family style at each table.

MILWAUKEE CARNIVAL:
It was 1898 and Wisconsin was turning 50 years old and to celebrate a small group of young entrepreneurs with the help of Milwaukee’s Mayor Rose came together to present Milwaukee Carnival! Thousands of people flocked from near and far to Milwaukee to experience a week packed with parades, concerts, pageants, competitions, fireworks, and a all out party. But unfortunately the Carnival Association ran out of steam resulting in the event only lasting for 4 years and eventually ceasing to exist in 1902, until 2013 when SWARMM brought it back to life!

Wine Social At Peck Welcome Center

Date: Sat-Aug-23-2014

Location: Milwaukee County Zoo

Time: 5:00 pm



Did you know the lion prefers Cabernet Sauvignon, while tigers and cougars (not those) prefer Chardonnay? Ok, maybe our research isn't 100% accurate, but think about this—What kinds of wine do you prefer? Although they are a priority, we are not just about animals at Milwaukee County Zoo. Join us for The Wine Social hosted by GrapestoBottles. This not-so-regular wine tasting event with lions, where you will be able to visually interact with animals while tasting wine. Just don't offer to share!

Acquiring a taste for good wine is easier than you think, whether you are a novice or experienced wine drinker. It's mostly a matter of sampling a variety of wines, letting your taste buds become accustomed to the flavors of wine characteristics, and discovering what you like. With many different wines from variety of different regions and different countries, there will be something out there for everyone!

We also encourage you to take advantage of our wine social photo area. To capture embarrassing pictures of your friends, or maybe just of you and yours enjoying a delightful evening of wine tasting. Take snap shots of your favorite wines to check out for your next dinner party. But most importantly join our community by posting your favorites to your Instagram using the hashtag #grapestobottles

Other than a superb variety of wines, grapestobottles will wow you with a fabulous cheese bar. But please eat a hearty meal before attending the tasting as the only food available at the zoo is for the Big Cats. And just like humans with their wine, the animals don't like to share.

One last note: Parking. Free Parking At Zoo's Main Parking Lot. After you park, use main entrance to the Zoo. Please sample responsibly and use a designated driver (over-served guests will be used for lion's entertainment).

Have a glass of wine with a lion and release your inner animal. It's like a wine tasting safari!

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Sat-Aug-23-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.

August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Sun-Aug-24-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.

About Tai Chi in the Garden
Fiber artist Angela Laughingheart offers two Tai Chi/Qigong classes this summer, on Wednesdays and Sundays. “Outdoor practice allows for the best harmonization with Nature,” observes Laughingheart. Tai Chi and Qigong are soft moving sequences, developed by the Chinese for health, longevity and self-defense. These exercises regulate the body, breathing, and mind of the practitioner to bring the human qi (bioelectricity) system to a higher and more balanced state. Using the same energy paths as an acupuncturist, we adjust the qi flow with movements instead of needles. No experience is necessary. Handouts for home practice provided.

Angela Laughingheart is a certified Tai Chi Instructor with Yang's Martial Arts Association, International and has been a lecturer at the UWM College of Health Science for nine years. www.ymaa.com.

You Asked for It: Custard Tour

Date: Sun-Aug-24-2014

Location: Historic Third Ward

Time: 1:00 pm



Milwaukeeans: YOU asked for it, and now you've got it!

Each and every year, we receive requests from our tour guests asking that we create routes around particular types of food. Per your requests, we've decided to host a series of special tours doing exactly that.

These limited edition tours are different than our traditional routes because:
- They are offered on a very limited basis. Be sure to snap up your tickets now before the particular food genre is "retired" from this special tour series.
- During the tour, we will sample only that genre of food, for example - we'll visit 4 BBQ locations.
- This tour is light on history. Instead, use this tour as an opportunity to sample a particular food with like-minded individuals.
- Please don't confuse this tour as a "Best of" or "Top Places" list. We'll be featuring a unique compilation of our tour guide and fellow Milwaukeean favorites, in no particular order.
- These 3-hour bus tours will depart from downtown Milwaukee and feature stops at 4 - 5 locations throughout the area. Guests on this special tour will be treated to generously sized samples of the featured food item at each of the 4 - 5 stops.

SUMMER 2014 FEATURE: CUSTARD
Sundays - June 22, July 13, August 3, August 24
Cost: $35 per person (transportation included)

IMPORTANT NOTATIONS:
- Although minimal walking is required, there is still walking involved.
- This tour is NOT handicap accessible and attendees will need to go up/down minimal stairs to get on/off the bus multiple times.

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Mon-Aug-25-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Tue-Aug-26-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.

About Tai Chi in the Garden
Fiber artist Angela Laughingheart offers two Tai Chi/Qigong classes this summer, on Wednesdays and Sundays. “Outdoor practice allows for the best harmonization with Nature,” observes Laughingheart. Tai Chi and Qigong are soft moving sequences, developed by the Chinese for health, longevity and self-defense. These exercises regulate the body, breathing, and mind of the practitioner to bring the human qi (bioelectricity) system to a higher and more balanced state. Using the same energy paths as an acupuncturist, we adjust the qi flow with movements instead of needles. No experience is necessary. Handouts for home practice provided.

Angela Laughingheart is a certified Tai Chi Instructor with Yang's Martial Arts Association, International and has been a lecturer at the UWM College of Health Science for nine years. www.ymaa.com.

August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Thu-Aug-28-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.

The American Road Exhibit

Date: Fri-Aug-29-2014

Location: Harley-Davidson Museum

Time: 9:00 am



“Road Trip!” These words conjure all sorts of imagery, vivid memories, and nostalgia. Opening June of 2014, the Harley-Davidson Museum’s special exhibition The American Road traces the rise of the road trip as an American ritual. The story unfolds in the 1930s, when leisure travel and the open road offered an escape for a small but growing number of affluent Americans. By the post-WWII years, taking to the road became the template for the average family vacation. “Westward ho!” was their cry, albeit in a station wagon rather than covered wagon, as celebrating the frontier and old west became central to defining uniquely American ideals of freedom and exploration. Though this Golden Age of the road trip ended with the gas crisis of the early ‘70s, the ritual remains a fundamental American experience, evidenced by its place in pop culture as well as the curiosity it sparks globally as motorists and motorcyclists retrace historic routes.

August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.

Tyanna Buie: Printmaker
August 8 – November 2, 2014

In this site-specific installation, Milwaukee artist Tyanna Buie employs a combination of screen printing, collage and ink-on-paper together with three-dimensional objects to convey her narrative of loss, impermanence, and unconventional family dynamics. Buie corrals this introspection and reflection into the gallery making the experience simultaneously personal and universal. Consciously or subconsciously, we all carry our past with us, and great art can tap into that in a constructive way. Tyanna Buie takes her past and makes something positive. Hopefully it will do the same for others.
