Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s: grave men peer through their giant telescope. Behind the scenes, Henrietta Leavitt and her female "computer" partners map the distant stars in galaxies beyond our own. Henrietta's brilliant work paves the way for modern astronomy, but she struggles for recognition in a man's world. In this magical story of science, history, family and love, a passionate young woman maps her own passage through a society determined to keep her in her place.

Restaurant coworkers Frankie and Johnny have been on one date, and they’ve slept together, and that’s IT – as far as Frankie is concerned. Johnny, a compulsive romantic, has other ideas. He’s decided they’re in love. As the night goes on, the duo’s sometimes-touching, sometimes-hilarious conversation leads both to question whether the paths of their lives might be more changeable than they believe.

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Disgraced and The Invisible Hand comes a thrillingly fierce and funny new play about identity, religion, and the contradictions that make us who we are. Growing up Muslim with her close knit family in Atlanta, Zarina is writing about women and Islam when she meets Eli, a young convert who bridges the gap between her modern life and traditional heritage. When her conservative father and sister discover her controversial manuscript, they all must confront the beliefs that define them. Called “a play not to be missed” by the Chicago Tribune, The Who & The What is a passionate and searing look at a family divided by faith, bonded by love, and searching for truth in contemporary America.

Eccentric Manhattan socialite Florence Foster Jenkins once declared, “people may say I can’t sing, but no one ever said I didn’t sing.” And, oh, did she sing – often and loudly, but rarely on key. Her recitals brought her a legion of die-hard fans, and she capped her improbable career with a Carnegie Hall concert that famously sold out in two hours. Her story was recently told in an Oscar-nominated film starring Meryl Streep. Time Out calls Souvenir “a memorable illustration of the purely theatrical magic that can turn the tinniest ear to gold.” Souvenir is a charming and hilarious musical comedy that reminds us that can achieve anything when you set your mind to it.

Custard Capital of the World - Custard Tour

Custard Capital of the World - Custard Tour

June 18, 2017 - September 24, 2017
Downtown Milwaukee
September 24, 2017 at 12:00 PM (Sun)
Milwaukeeans demanded & Milwaukee Food & City Tours delivered with the creation of a tour dedicated solely to highlighting the “custard capital of the world.” On the tour you will visit the shops & stands that have been institutions throughout Milwaukee’s historic communities. Guests will be treated to:
  • Butter burger and fries at an iconic MKE diner (you will have opportunity to put ketchup, mustard, relish on, if so desired)
  • 3 generously sized custard portions
  • round-trip transportation
  • guided tour fun
“Custard’s unique characteristics that make it creamier, softer and often times more flavorful than ice cream are what make it such an enjoyable and requested summer treat – especially with out-of-town tour guests,” said Theresa Nemetz, owner of Milwaukee Food & City Tours. “Milwaukee has so many fantastic custard vendors that the tour theme was an obvious addition for our company.” RECENT REVIEWS Custard Galore! "The custard places we went to were very generous and filling. I didn't need to eat supper after all of the custard. One place added a quarter of a hamburger and another added french fries. Both of these treats added some welcome saltiness to the custard. Our bus was comfortable and Jean, our leader, was informative, friendly, and enthusiastic all through our afternoon together. She made strangers feel welcome with each other. In addition to the delicious custard we had an afternoon of laughs and friendly companions." This tour was wonderful! "The serving size of custard at each place was a full single size so I was extremely full by the end of the tour! I'm a local but was introduced to at least one frozen custard place that I never knew existed and turned out to be my favorite of all of them. I would definitely recommend this tour for an afternoon of frozen custard tasting." The 2.5-hour bus tour departs from downtown Milwaukee and feature stops at four custard stands throughout the area while enjoying stories of Milwaukee en route. IMPORTANT NOTATIONS: Although minimal walking is required, there is still walking involved. This tour is NOT handicap accessible and attendees will need to go up/down minimal stairs to get on/off the bus multiple times. Tastings - All tastings are included in the price. Portions are often served family-style. Samples are substantial - for the vast majority of attendees, you will not need to plan for a meal after the tour! Food Allergies  This tour is seafood/shellfish free. We do have a vegetarian option (grilled cheese sandwich) on this tour.

Most of the locations we visit do not distribute their beer or spirits, but you will have the opportunity to buy directly from them if you would like to take home a souvenir or two. Growlers will be available for purchase throughout the tour, or you may bring your own growlers so that you may fill them. The Craft Breweries & Cocktails tour is a 4-hour bus tour. We'll visit 5 locations on the tour, each offering either a flight of 3, 4 oz beers, or a pint or cocktail of choice. Round-trip transportation and guided fun is included, along with the drinks as noted above. Please note, food is not provided on this tour.
