Update April 15, 2014: 9:09am: Unfortunately the Brewers lost to the Cardinals 4-0 Monday night, snapping a nine-game winning streak. The good news is Sobelmans will sell its burgers (yes, including double and triple Sobelmans) for half-price Tuesday, April 15 at its location at 1900 W St Paul Ave. Half price discount applies to dine in only orders.
If the Milwaukee Brewers win tonight at Miller Park against the St. Louis Cardinals, this will be the 10th straight win for the Brew Crew.
On March 28th, Sobelmans Pub and Grill announced if the Brewers win 10 in a row, Sobelman’s would give out free burgers on Tuesday, April 15 from open (11am) until close. The free burgers are single-patty cheeseburgers, and are available for dine-in only.
So tune into the game tonight at 7:10pm to see if you’ll be eating for free tomorrow.
PS: If the Brewers sweep the Cardinals Wednesday night this would be the Brewers 12th straight which means George Webbs will be giving away free burgers as well.

CHAMPAGNE EASTER BRUNCH
Guanajuato Mexican restaurant in Bay View closed its location today at 2301 S. Howell Ave. and will move into its new space just two doors South at 2317 S. Howell Ave.
Guanajuato owner Julio Lopez told me he expects to reopen the new location in two to three days.
In the meantime, another Mexican restaurant, Mr. Webo’s will start renovating the space left by Guanajuato and plans to open in the space at 2301 S. Howell Ave. in three weeks.
Casablanca, the Middle Eastern restaurant at 728 E. Brady St. has completed its renovations that has nearly doubled its size.
The newly constructed second-story now includes a banquet space that can accomodate up to 300 guests and a covered terrace over-looking Brady St.
You can see the completed project for the first time Friday night when the restaurant hosts its grand re-opening party with live music and belly dancing.

Update: The Philly Way is now open at 1330 E. Brady Street. The new location hours are Mon – Wed: 11am to 10pm, Thurs – Sat: 11am to 3am, and Sun: Noon to 9pm. The resaturant phone number is (414) 763-8875.
The Philly Way, a popular cheese steak shop in Walker’s Point will open a new restaurant on Brady Street in May, 2012.
According to its Facebook page, the new location will be located about one block west of Farwell St. on the north side of Brady, inside the former “Miss Groove” clothing store.
This would have been Philly way #4 if all of the locations remained open today.
Owner Dave London closed his Cudahy location in August, 2011 after being open for less than a year. And unfortunately, Mr. London had the same luck with a Downtown locale at 222 W. Wells. The Wells Street location closed in late-2009.
The Philly Way’s orignal location in Walkers Point remains strong is doing great business.

Downtown Milwaukee’s very own Ward’s House of Prime, 540 E. Mason Street, will be featured on a special episode entitled, “Big Beef Paradise” on the Travel Channel this Wednesday at 8 p.m. CST.
According to producers, the food show will feature the best places in the country to get big slices of beef, and it will include Ward’s chefs cooking up delicious cuts of choice beef, an interview with owner Brian Ward, and footage from a Prime Rib Eating Contest Ward’s recently hosted. The contest included 3 contestants trying to eat a humongous 160 oz (yes, 10 pounds) cut of prime rib in less than an hour.
In early 2010 Dane Kasper decided he wanted to eat 40 ounces of Prime Rib. At the time this size cut of meat was not offered on Ward’s menu so Executive Chef Bill Baumann happily carved the gigantic slab of meat for Dane, and the rest is, well, history. Dane conquered the 40 ounces and thus, “The Baby Dane” was born. Dane would later return to take down “The Great Dane,” 106 ounces of cooked to perfection Prime Rib to earn another spot of Ward’s menu and its “Wall of Fame.”
Ward’s “Wall of Fame” currently pays tribute to 9 previous customers who have conquered eating enormous portions of prime rib. Their caricatures are on the restaurant’s wall and their names are also featured on the Ward’s prime rib menu. The following prices were accurate at the time this blog was posted and prices are subject to change without notice.
So, did anyone finish the 10 pounds of meat?
We can tell you that one person did conquer the massive cut in just 31 minutes and that one person decided to eat an additional 8 ounces of meat beyond the contest requirements to earn the rights to be included in the restaurant’s Wall of Fame.
The “Big Beef Paradise” episode is also scheduled to air at 11 p.m. on December 21 and at 6 p.m. on December 25 (Christmas Day).
