Each week on Radio Milwaukee, Milwaukee Magazine dining critic Ann Christenson and 88Nine’s resident foodie Tarik Moody discuss Milwaukee’s culinary and restaurant culture on This Bites.

On this week’s edition, we’ve got news about Pete’s Pops, a garlic festival happening this evening, and a food-truck festival at the Summerfest grounds.

We kick things off by talking about Braise’s a garlic-infused block party, which it’s hosting this evening between 5-9 p.m. in Walker’s Point. The restaurant used to do it garlic block party on a weekend, but it’s opted for a weekday this year. Check out this incredible menu:

Pete’s Pops has grown a lot since it began in 2014, opening new locations around the city. This summer the shop is doing a seasonal stand outside the Milwaukee Public Market. It opens starting June 25, and will be open weather-dependent. And in addition to established favorite flavors like salted watermelon, the shop is going to start offering alcoholic flavors.

And on July 24 there will be a food-truck festival at the Summerfest grounds. MKE Food Truck Fest will run from noon-5 p.m. and will feature more than a dozen food trucks, with an emphasis on global cuisines.

Hear us talk about all that and so much more on this week’s episode.
