Great Weekend for Wisconsin Football Teams!

Green Bay Packers Wisconsin Badgers Football

After this weekend, my faith has been renewed in Wisconsin sports, particularly football. On Saturday, our very own Wisconsin Badgers defeated the Iowa Hawkeyes at Iowa with a 31-30 final. Wisconsin have now taken hold of the number 10 spot in national rankings and proved to college football fans their OSU win was no fluke. After this game, the Iowa Hawkeyes are now ranked number 13. The next Badgers game will be November 6 at Purdue. Hopefully they can pull out another stellar win. I can't wait to get my hands on some Wisconsin Badgers tickets!

Sunday was also a day of victory for football in Wisconsin with the Green Bay Packer win at home against division rivals, the Minnesota Vikings. The ante was upped this year with the scandal surrounding Packer veteran QB Brett Favre. The game ended with a 28-24 score and it has been confirmed that Favre actually has two fractures in his ankle from the game yesterday. The Green Bay Packers are now tied with the Chicago Cubs for first place in the NFC North. I’m looking forward to checking out the Packers next game against the New York Jets at New York next week. It will be on Halloween so hopefully nothing spooky happens to any of our players!

Bradley Center Events for November | Bucks Marquette Admirals Schedule

Bradley Center events

I know that many of us are thinking Wisconsin Badgers football, after the upset at Camp Randall, but did you know that Milwaukee Bradley Center events are about to kick into high gear? As our Milwaukee Bucks, Admirals and Marquette share the "BC," there is always something going on.

Bradley Center November Events

  • Milwaukee Bucks home opener is November 2
  • Marquette plays five home games
  • The Admirals take to the ice three times
  • Sesame Street Live will share the venue with the Bucks on November 27

This is the time of year when the hoops are almost always set up, and the Ice is just under the wood, ready for the Admirals. December at the Bradley Center is even busier, with 27 scheduled events.

Great Events at Uihlein Hall This Season

nutcracker uihlein hall

With the crunchy leaves and cooler temperatures come more indoor entertainment – namely for Milwaukeeans, Uihlein Hall becomes the place to be. Housed in the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, Uihlein Hall is the largest theater in the facility and is designed for everything from orchestral concerts to ballet and everything in-between. If you’re looking for a musical, Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein” will be coming to town in November. I am more partial to ballet than musicals and I am looking forward to both the Milwaukee Ballet’s “Esmeralda” and of course, “The Nutcracker”. No matter what you see at the Marcus Center this season, you’re in for a real treat.

Muse and Passion Pit at The Bradley Center October 6

Milwaukee Bradley Center Passion Pit and Muse

This week, Milwaukee music fans have a great opportunity to see two great bands in one of the largest venues in the city. This Wednesday, Brit rockers Muse and indie electro group Passion Pit will be playing at the Bradley Center. I have had my Passion Pit/Muse tickets for a month or two now and I will be interested to see the crowd dynamic with such different artists performing on the same bill. In my opinion, this is kind of a strange mix but I think the two unique sounds will bring some value to music lovers. The Bradley Center will be an upgrade for both bands. The last time Muse was in Milwaukee, they played The Rave, and Passion Pit previously played the Riverside and Summerfest earlier this year. It should be interesting to see how well the bands can fill the arena, both musically and amount of fans. Though I am admittedly not the hugest fan of Muse, it will be interesting to see them after having 6 years between their last appearance in Milwaukee and now. They have since written 2 new albums and created a new and much more elaborate stage setup. The show will start at 7:30 PM this Wednesday, the 6th of October at the Bradley Center.
