We’ll enjoy a relaxed summer evening along the Milwaukee River. We'll grab a table and save some seats so stop by after work, before work, after dinner, anytime. We will be in the southwest corner of the beer garden (look for people in Sierra Club gear).
All are welcome – members and non-members, alike.
