MUSIC CLUB

The Jazz Estate

Everything about this East Side gem exudes vintage charm, from its well-curated cocktail list to its tufted bar stools to its eclectic live music lineup.

2423 N. Murray Ave.; jazzestate.com

MUSIC VENUE

Pabst Theater

Built in 1895, this grand concert hall is the fourth-oldest continuously operating theater in the United States. And it looks – and sounds – as good today as it did over 100 years ago.

144 E. Wells St.; pabsttheater.org

 LOCAL MUSICIAN

Amanda Huff

This up-and-coming electronic artist, whose husky vocals are her greatest instrument, sounds a bit like Billie Eilish by way of Norah Jones. And we’re happy to call her our own.

ATHLETE

Giannis Antetokounmpo

The impossibly long steps. The thunderous dunks. The uncanny feel for the game. The innocent, 100% natural charm. The smile. (And also the “mean muggin’” Giannis face.) The repeated statements that he wants to stay in Milwaukee and win a title here. And the notion that he’s likely to keep getting better. (We love you, too, Yeli!)

TEAM (NON-BREWERS/BUCKS)

Milwaukee Admirals

The Ads’ level of hockey brings fast action that’s easy to follow, but we’re all in on the between-period antics like bungee-launching a fan on the ice like a human bowling ball.

MILWAUKEE ESSENTIAL

Summerfest

It’s the absolute apex of summer in Milwaukee: that moment around dusk, after one great set by a band you didn’t know and before another by a band you did, when the cool breeze is coming in off the lake, and everything is perfect.

GOLF COURSE

Brown Deer Park

The layout at Brown Deer is unmatched among its county course peers, with some 60 bunkers and a stream creating challenges across the 18 holes. Tiger Woods aced No. 14 during his professional debut in 1996.
