Yelp MKE’s Brew City Bash II: 100 Years Of Cream City History

What do you get when you put amazing local businesses, two photobooths, a unique + accomplished local band and one of Milwaukee's most gorgeous venues together for a night of 20s-era, Gatsby-themed fun?

You get Yelp's Brew City Bash II, of course!


Yelp MKE's second-ever Yelper Party – Yelp's Brew City Bash II – rocked the Milwaukee County Historical Society on May 18, 2013 in a seriously glam way. Milwaukee's brightest and finest were there, reppin' in jazz-age style: stellar libations from Great Lakes Distillery, Bryant's Cocktail Lounge, Lakefront Brewery, DRY Soda, and Cedarburg Coffee Roastery, as well as mind-blowing eats courtsey of Susie Chen's Potstickers, Ono Kine Grindz, Karma Bar & Grill, Simmer Soup Truck, Clock Shadow Creamery, VIA Downer, Rumpus Room, Blue's Egg/Maxie's, Times Square Pizza/Atomic Chocolates… c'mon MKE. You know it doesn't get much better than that!

Add to that the live music of unique + well-loved, local end-timey favorite The Scarring Party, tours of the historical society's collections, and photobooths by both The Traveling Photobooth and Angela Morgan of @AngelinePhotog and, well, you've got a night for dames and gents to remember.

Milwaukee Yelpers generously supported charity organization One Heartland as well as the Historical Society itself, to boot!

A *huge* thank you to everyone who came out to the party, and to all our stellar vendors as well as The Scarring Party and MCHS. I was floored by how great everyone looked in their Gatsby garb, and by how much MKE love and pride could be felt throughout that gorgeous, gorgeous building. Events like this? They really exemplify why the four-one-four is such a fantastic place to be!

Until next time, SYOY Yelpers!
