Greetings to you, the loyal subscriber of The Recombobulation Area.

This here publication has now been up and running for two full years, so we thought it's time for a little celebration. 

So, we’re throwing a party! 

Please join us on Sept. 23 at the Boone & Crockett Patio, where we will have the chance to recombobulate, together. 

We’ll be getting things started at 6 p.m., which will give you time to grab a drink before...

  • 6:30 p.m.: Live Q&A with The Recombobulation Area’s Dan Shafer, featuring Kristin Brey of As Goes Wisconsin

  • 7:30 p.m.: Rewatch Game 6 of the NBA Finals!

That’s right, it’s #BucksInSix forever! 

Check in at our Facebook event here for any updates.


As much as we want to be building a bold, progressive, independent publication with The Recombobulation Area, we also want to be building a community. This is your chance to get together with that community. Come meet up with all your Twitter buddies that you’ve been @ -ing throughout the pandemic, have some fun, and relive the collective joy of the greatest moment in Milwaukee sports history. Seems pretty good!

The celebration will be held outdoors (weather permitting), and will adhere to the bar and city’s covid protocols. And if you’re not vaccinated, don’t come! (Seriously, don’t come.)

If you have a question to submit for the Q&A, please send it to It could also be used in an upcoming mailbag edition of the column.
