Drink Mojitos and Splurge on S’mores for Music

Drink a Mojito Margarita or splurge on a S’Mores Fondue dessert at Houlihan’s restaurant at Brookfield Square Mall at your can help Save the Music.

Today the chain announced, now through Sept. 4, 2009, for every Mojito Margarita and S’Mores Fondue dessert sold at Houlihan’s Brookfield Square Mall restaurant – and nearly 90 other Houlihan’s corporate stores and franchises across the country – the restaurant will donate $1, up to $30,000, to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation. Guests who dine at Houlihan’s Brookfield Square Mall restaurant, located at 95 N. Moorland Rd, can also opt to make personal donations to the fund by noting a desired amount on their guest checks.

Houlihan’s executives hope to build on the success of last year’s inaugural campaign, when more than $54,000 was donated to VH1 Save The Music Foundation to provide music education programs for two schools – one in Wilkinsburg, PA and the other in St. Louis, MO.

“Music is a critical piece of Houlihan’s customer experience,” said Jesse Lawson, General Manager of Houlihan’s restaurant in Brookfield Square Mall. “Our music selection draws from the many lesser-known artists as we feel it is important to give budding artists a chance to be heard. Similarly, we strongly believe that every child should have the chance to play an instrument, join a band, and enjoy the many benefits music brings to life. In partnering with VH1 Save The Music Foundation, we hope to help restore music education in our schools and generate awareness about the fact that many kids are growing up with out access to instruments or music programs.”

Since its founding in 1997, VH1 Save The Music Foundation has helped “save” music programs in thousands of public schools, which traditionally cut fine arts activities when budgets tighten. Also, the foundation has helped countless children enjoy the benefits of musical study, including improved self-esteem and increased SAT scores, high school graduation rates, college attendance rates, etc.

GQ names Milwaukee’s Streetza one of America’s Best Food Trucks

Streetza, Milwaukee’s new Mobile Pizza restaurant launched in May, 2009 but is already gaining National attention with its most recent write-up inside GQ’s list of the 10 Best Food Trucks in America.

Streetza was the first mobile-restaurant concept in the Milwaukee area to broadcast its location via its social network friends on twitter, facebook and myspace.

What is a Streetza pizza? Here’s what we found on their website…

“Bringing you delicious pizza by the slice. The perfect thickness. Right in-between New York Style and Chicago Style is Streetza Style. A perfect crust, flakey on the inside, crisp on the outside. Not too thin, not too thick. Just like your Italian grandmother would make if you locked her in the back of a truck. Available with you favorite fresh toppings – by the slice. And for the record, size does matter. Which is why our slices are huge. 1/6 of a 17″ pizza, means one will be more than enough to curb your late-night hunger.”

World’s Largest Outdoor Fish Fry returns Saturday

The “World’s Largest One Day Outdoor Fish Fry” is the title bestowed on Port Washington’s Fish Day, the annual celebration of the city’s history as a commercial fishing port and the continuing sports fishing industry. Fish Day has been the financial lifeline for nine civic organizations that run the fish and chips stands throughout the day, just as they have since 1964.

The stands’ profits are turned back to the community in a variety of ways, Some are easy visible from the Fish Day grounds along the Lake Michigan waterfront. Rotary Park, the harbor walk that leads to the grounds, Kiwanis Pavilion and the marina’s fish cleaning stations are enjoyed by residents and visitors.

Other contributions to the community are not as easy to see, but they are part of the quality of life. Scholarships, recreational programs, assistance for people who have met life-challenging problems, Scout troops, and a variety of other efforts are beneficiaries of the celebration.

One of the attractions of the stands is that each of the nine organizations serves the same menu that has been prepared since the first Fish Day on August 21, 1965 — deep-fried fish and chips, beer and soda.

Volunteers have become experts at frying the fish and chips, dipping into buckets of ice to provide the orders for soda and tapping half-barrels of beer to keep the customers satisfied at the stands located along the lakefront from Upper Lake Park to the marina.

Volunteers have become experts at frying the fish and chips, dipping into buckets of ice to provide the orders for soda and tapping half-barrels of beer to keep the customers satisfied at the stands located along the lakefront from Upper Lake Park to the marina.

Volunteers on the Fish Day committee and board of directors work year round to provide the entertainment and related activities that make the event a successful celebration. There are no paid positions for this organization. The goal is to provide a great day at family friendly prices. The number of people attending each year’s Fish Day shows the volunteers are meeting that goal.

Music remains an integral part of the program. Stages located along the lakefront, including the main stage, are the settings for music appealing to all ages.

At 10 a.m. the stands open and the Fish Day celebration is underway. The carnival rides are in operation, helicopter rides take off and the vendors are ready for customers.

The Arts and Crafts Fair and Custom Car and Hot Rod Show participants are ready for visitors who want to see the best work of local artisans and the unique vehicles. Both events are held in Upper Lake Park.

A carnival, ice cream eating and smoked fish eating contests are other traditional enticements for young and old.

No celebration is complete without fireworks. And just as the first Fish Day, the fireworks display that completes the day is spectacular. The sky over downtown Port Washington is filled with color as the pyrotechnic display is sent toward the heavens from the harbor dock. The Grand Fireworks Finale starts at 9:30pm
