Sometimes, you gotta get out of your comfort zone. And the big news about Milwaukee Brewing Company being sold to a Chicago-area buyer nudged us into beerland at the top of this week’s episode.
As a self-proclaimed mocktail aficionado, Ann usually leaves suds discussions to the magazine’s executive editor and “beer guy,” Chris Drosner. But the company rumored to take over has an exciting track record we really wanted to talk about.
After that conversational keg goes dry, we move back to the food realm and discuss what else is going on around the city:
- Pete’s Fruit Market plans to add a full deli kitchen in the near future that expands their offerings to include salads, entrees and sides.
- Taste of Egypt is going on right now through Sunday at St. Mary & St. Antonious Coptic Orthodox Church of Milwaukee.
- Being an empanada fanatic, Ann couldn’t wait to talk about La Mendocina, a take-and-bake empanada business operating out of the kitchen at Riverwest Filling Station.
