Milwaukee: Joel’s Favorite Suburb

Milwaukee: Joel’s Favorite Suburb

Many people ask me, what’s Chicago’s best suburb to visit?  I always say, easy answer…. Milwaukee rules. The Riverside Theater, which will be Umphrey’s McGee’s home for 3 nights this Halloween, sits squarely in the middle of all the action.  One of my favorite things about downtown Milwaukee is that everything is walkable from hotels to bars to restaurants.  Once you’ve set up shop in a downtown hotel, ditch the car keys, get out and …

UM + GTSport Racing

UM + GTSport Racing

Music has a funny way of permeating through the world. We’ve been fortunate enough to accumulate countless experiences over the years, many of which we dreamed about as kids, many of which never crossed our minds. This one falls into the latter category. Today we find ourselves hurling around a rack track at 150+mph, in spirit anyway, as the UM logo dons GTSport Racing Jack Baldwin’s Porsche Cayman S. One of the greatest things about what we …
