It’s almost time! The Recombobulation Area’s 2nd anniversary party is TOMORROW NIGHT!

Be there at the Boone & Crockett from 6-10 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 23. The event is FREE!

Here’s what’s happening at this, our first-ever (!) event: 

- 6:30: Live Q&A with yours truly and Kristin Brey from As Goes Wisconsin 

- 7:30: We’re rewatching the greatest moment in Milwaukee sports history, Game 6 of the NBA Finals! #BucksInSix 

Because, well, as Kristin puts it, “When you pay this close attention to Wisconsin politics, you double down on joy when you can."

Check in at our Facebook event here for any updates the day of the party.


At the event, we are keeping everyone’s safety in mind, so the entire even will be held outside on the patio, where we can watch the game on a 70-inch flatscreen. Masks are required indoors. And if you’re not vaccinated, don’t come! (Seriously, don’t come.)

And be advised, the weather forecast is currently showing that it will be getting down into the 50s as the sun sets, and the Boone Patio is right on the water, so plan accordingly. It is now Fall in Milwaukee, after all.

ALSO: Our brand new T-shirts will be available for $20, exclusively at this event. As will some Bucks T-shirts from our friends at As Goes Wisconsin.

ONE MORE THING: We’re offering a big subscription discount to celebrate our 2nd birthday! 

A full-year subscription to The Recombobulation Area is now 50% OFF. Go here — recombobulationarea.substack.com/birthday — for this special offer to help support local, independent journalism in Milwaukee and Wisconsin. Let’s keep building this thing, together.

And at the Live Q&A, we’ll be taking questions from you, the readers, just like we do for our regular mailbag editions of this here column. So, even if you’re not able to make it in person, you can still be part of the event.
