As I mentioned in my Waukesha Freeman column, the 5k “Run from the Cops” event will be shutting down Main Street in the city of Waukesha on Friday, August 21st, along with Friday Night Live. The “Run from the Cops” actually starts further west on Main Street than Friday Night Live, inconveniencing more residents and […]

George Wang at Galleria Edge is hosting an art auction fundraiser Saturday night in downtown Waukesha. The event is called, “One Nipple Minimum,” and the title is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the controversy a few years ago regarding artwork at Waukesha’s city hall that had an exposed nipple.

Per tradition, we’ll be meeting at Cafe de Arts from 6-7, rolling out on the River Walk & Fox […]

Another article on Waukesha Freeman Friday Night Live and the controversy over closing the streets. The article quotes Scott Verville of American Tattoo on how the street closings have hurt his business. (More from Scott Verville on the subject here.) On the flip side, I asked George Wang of Waukesha Tattoo/Galleria Edge on his feelings […]

George from Waukesha Tattoo Company forgot to wear his tuxedo to the meeting withWaukesha Mayor Jeff Scrima last October.  It’s okay, George. The mayor forgot all about it. Don’t let it consume you. Print this entry

Belated congratulations to George Wang of the Waukesha Tattoo Company for the unveiling of the new mural. I can’t wait to stop by and see it in person. I’ll have to check ahead of time to see if he’s there. He’s on a not-so-secret mission involving duck tape and a ShamWow. Print this entry
