People have been writing about Milwaukee 2.0 for a long time now, but only recently has the city that’s perhaps known best for people that didn’t exist – Laverne, Shirley, The Fonz – ambled out of the 1980s and into the 21st century. Don’t get us wrong, there’s always been plenty to like about it. For instance, it’s got one of the most handsome downtowns in the country (German craftsmanship at its finest), beautiful, big, affordable homes, a lovely lakefront and a lot of beer, some of it quite drinkable. But hip? Never. That’s changed. These days, Milwaukee feels like it’s finally back in the game, innovating and restoring and renewing and just damn fun to spend time with.
