Milwaukee on a Budget

The barren, cold, ruthless winter months of Milwaukee are upon us, and the indoors are becoming much more appealing. Without the warm weather that provided endless outdoor activities, you may be struggling to make weekend plans. We’re here to give you some old-school, fun, and cheap things to do in the city.

From indie to rock, jam out for $10.

Take a tour of Stone Creek Coffee’s Factory 

Free to the public every Sunday at noon. Sign up here.

Check out re:Craft & Relic
