Milwaukee's own super bowl coming this October

Postscript
By Unknown #2 August 17, 2009
No, we're not talking football. The bowl in question here is the 11th annual Empty Bowls event; the nation's largest fund-raiser of its kind. Bring a $20 bill with you, and you'll enjoy free entertainment, a handmade ceramic bowl, some delicious soup and bread made by local restaurant chefs, and a warm fuzzy from the knowledge that you've just helped feed the hungry. Then you get to take your bowl home with you to enjoy. Better than a touchdown, any day. Okay, some might debate that, but still... it's good stuff. Read more...
