We’ve been working hard to put together a WordCamp Milwaukee after-party that is 100 percent pure Milwaukee. When planning the party, we set a goal of finding a venue in the 5th Ward (same area of town as Bucketworks) and having most of the food and beverages sourced from the area as well.
We pretty much succeeded. Here’s a rundown of what we know so far (and yes we are working on yet more awesomeness):
Venue: Milwaukee Brewing Company, 613 S. 2nd St., Milwaukee. (This is the actual brewery where they make the beer you could choose to drink at the party.)
Food: Transfer Pizza (One of Milwaukee’s favorite and most unique pizza places, which is also located in the 5th Ward area.)
Entertainment: DJ Romke of Spreenkler Milwaukee fame.
Beverages: Beer from Milwaukee Brewing, spirits (with some special beer twists) from Great Lakes Distillery. There will be soda and water on hand as well.
Cost: Your first two alcoholic beverages are free and it’s cash bar after that. Everything else is courtesy of your WordCamp Milwaukee sponsors.
The party won’t start until 7 p.m. to allow Milwaukee Brewing to hold their open house before our event. But stick around at Bucketworks after the day’s sessions because we’ll have some sliders from Milwaukee’s newest BBQ restaurant Smokeshack delivered around 5 p.m. Then walk over to Milwaukee Brewing (and maybe stop at one of Milwaukee’s classic watering holes on the way).
But make sure you make it to Milwaukee Brewing at 7 p.m. because we’ll have an awesome WordCamp Milwaukee party waiting for you!
