For the last few days since Prince has passed away, I have read a lot of stories about Prince and his impact on our society. On social media, many people around the country and the world are holding events in his honor. I wanted to know what was happening in Milwaukee. I found four local businesses celebrating the life of Prince in Milwaukee.
