Emerald City Catering & Events
Your ticket to Southside Soup will grant you delicious soup, salad, and a vote. While eating, you’ll listen to various proposals for community projects. Once you hear out all the proposals, each only about four minutes long, you’ll vote for the one that you think deserves the funding and BOOM: all of the evening’s ticket proceeds go straight to that person. Talk about an easy way to get involved.

Pabst Milwaukee Brewery & Taproom
Welp, it’s 2019, and I’ve been “coming out of my cage, and I’ve been doing just fine.” Except I haven’t, because the good old emo days are dead and gone. Just as Simple Plan said: “nothing lasts forever.” HOWEVER, for one night, we can all relive the best music of our middle school days because, you know, “what’s the worst thing I can say? Things are better if I stay.” Of course, My Chemical Romance wasn’t talking about the emo music days, but I am. Either way, you won’t want to miss the Myspace Emo Prom. I dare you to recreate your 2008 Myspace pic look, grab your best date, and cry out to more than The Killers, Simple Plan, and MCR.

Old World Third Street
Okay, so pizza is dope, drinking is dope, and the two combined into one bar crawl will be sick. The Milwaukee Pizza Crawl is put on by @barcrawlnation (check them out on Insta), and this pizza crawl is hosted in 17 cities. Not only will you indulge in cheesy, bread-y goodness, but you’ll have the chance to win free slices, grab some swag, and get discounts at all the pizza vendors. Stay tuned for the unveiling of those vendors, sure to be announced soon.

South Shore Park
Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a professional to participate in this one. Carly Stoj has you covered. It was 16 years ago on a trip to New Mexico that Carly started practicing yoga, and she’s here to “encourage people to understand that they already possess everything they need within themselves.” Her classes are about connecting, learning, reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression. Or, in her words: “yoga is about union, not necessarily a vigorous boot camp in a hot room.” If you’ve always thought about trying yoga, this may be your opportunity. PLUS, there’ll be a beer garden social to follow for those in need of a little extra motivation.
Cost: $10 suggested

Beet Street 2019 will feature a solid lineup of music including Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, DJ Dave Arnevik, and Retoro. But there’s more than just music here, as Palomino hosts the Great Midwest Pie Championship, Cactus Club is premiering their video shorts series, and you can also shop at a punk rock rummage sale. Bay View is just about made for block parties in its cozy neighborhood streets, and this one will have all the fall charm.
Cost: Free admission

Boone & Crockett
Nothing screams fall more than a good flannel. Of course, there’ll be food and music while you hang in the parking lot. You’ll definitely want to get the oyster mushroom taco from Taco Moto as well as a Trinidad Sour from the bar at Boone, but other great food options include Maya Ophelia’s, Foxfire, Bad English, Snack Boys, and Hacienda Beer Co. The music lineup is pretty stellar, too, with Polica, Har Mar Superstar, Klassik, REYNA, and more. There’s sure to be craft vendors around the lot as well. All in all, not a bad way to spend a Saturday.
