    Was going to try and do the meet and greet at Doc’s smokehouse but they decided they are too busy. Last year we did the miller time bar but that was only just ok. Any suggestions?

    I will be posting a badge request thread shortly.

    The Old German Beer Hall is maybe two blocks or Up/Down is about a mile.

    If you're trying to talk, I wouldn't suggest Up Down.

    Now, if you want to play a bunch of games...

    yes 1983 is in the third ward. about 2-3 blocks from MGC. If JJ has a meet and greet there it will be ok because it's early in the day. If you go later at night it gets pretty hood. 3rd ward is the new water street. (think burban street) but they do have 5 machines, arcades, all on tokens. the beers and drinks are reasonable. but no food. JJ always buys food.

    I'm thinking if you're shooting for 5-5:30 Friday, and not later, I'd try your luck with DOC's. I would think it wouldn't be too crazy around then.

    Milwaukee Ale house . It’s close but maybe not close enough for some .
    Safe house is always fun and really close , but it may not have a good spot for meet and greet . It does have an upper area that might work and could maybe be reserved .
    Rock Bottom is really close but yeah they did have an issue with cockroaches. That being said I would not be afraid to go there . If they have been cleared to open again it means they have passed inspection and an inspection after something like this seems like it would be more thorough than what others get .
    Google bars near Wisconsin center and a ton of choices come up , some with food some without .

    Oh, yeah, this. If you've ordered a ticket or anything, we're doing a drink special with them where you'll get a coupon for a free drink or something (details are still being finalized), but it's also a great environment, has good food, and not too far away.

    They're one of the few surrounding places that really likes us too, and it's uniquely Milwaukee.

    I can't go, but if I could, this is STRONGLY my vote.

    I will reach out to them and see if we can use the private room or an area! Sounds cool and I like they are helping the show.

    We could do it out of the back of my truck.

    You are always trying to get me into the back of your truck. Last week it was Free Candy this week its a party? I'm worried

    Did you get your custom badge or do I need to print you a new one?

    The good doctor I'm coming with has it but I doubt he'll remember to bring it. He is a doctor after all.
