The Recombobulation Area is a six-time Milwaukee Press Club award-winning weekly opinion column and online publication written and published by veteran Milwaukee journalist Dan Shafer. Learn more about it here.
The Recombobulation Area’s next event is this Thursday…and you’re invited!
The event will feature Dan Shafer interviewing Mayor Cavalier Johnson on the patio at Boone & Crockett on Thursday, June 9. The event will be open to attendees at 5:30 p.m., and will begin shortly after. The interview is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Weather permitting, the event will be held outdoors. Families and children are welcome to attend.
After the interview, in addition to having the chance to get together and spend some time with fellow Recombobulation Area readers and Milwaukee Twitter mutuals, you’ll have the chance to learn more about a very exciting new project.
You may have heard that the owners at Boone & Crockett and The Cooperage are working to build a public riverwalk as part of the redevelopment of the Harbor District. At our event this Thursday, some of the folks behind that project will be on hand to display some of those plans and talk about what’s in the works.
The City of Milwaukee Plan Commission recently approved plans by Boone & Crocket to significantly enhance their portion of the Riverwalk in the Harbor District. This public/private project includes a new pedestrian connection from the street, new seating, an outdoor bar and beer garden, landscaping and restrooms. Renderings of the project will be on display at the event. Boone & Crockett and The Kubala Washatko Architects (TKWA) will be available to discuss this exciting project.
Hope to see you all at Boone & Crockett on Thursday!
