Thank you again to Van McNeil and WISN 12 for their interest in Doors Open Milwaukee 2015! Historic Milwaukee has done a phenomenal job promoting and organizing this event for the last five years. If you haven’t had a chance to visit any of the 175+ buildings available this weekend, there’s still time Sunday from 10 AM to 5 PM. Be sure to check the full list of participants at the official Doors Open website:
This is your invitation to get out and explore Milwaukee! We’re just one of +150 buildings that will be open to the public on Saturday, September 19th and Sunday, September 20th between 10 a.m.-5 p.m. It’s free to attend and members will be present to answer questions and give tours.
If you visit, please enter at the north side of our building which is on Otjen Street. While you’re in the area, be sure to check out the rest of our neighborhood. There’s plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance from the ‘Space.

Hopefully a few crafters out there will appreciate the measures we’ve taken to protect tools that have been loaned to the group. Deterring misuse is only one feature of this upcycled sheet metal enclosure. It’s also incredibly stylish! A padlock could easily be added in the future, but surely it won’t come to that.
…or will it?
March Elections are upon us and I’d like to share my thoughts on how to choose the best candidates.
