Allison grew up on the east side of Wauwatosa, and now is a musician and piano teacher who lives on the west side of Tosa with her husband Nick. She enjoys listening to live music, attending local arts events, baking and good wine.
The Ronald McDonald House (located across from Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Wauwatosa) is adding on a major expansion to their facility. President and CEO Ann Petrie recently set aside some time to speak with me about their exciting upcoming plans. At the bottom of this page is a rendering of what the House will look like when complete.
I would be remiss if I did not mention something about a very exciting fundraising event to take place in Wauwatosa this Saturday, for a group called The Milwaukee Choristers.
I have always enjoyed a good piano bar. In fact, when I was in my early/mid-twenties, you might have called me a piano bar regular. Lucille's and Centanni downtown in MKE were favorites. There've been a couple others to spring up in the area, most recently in our Tosa neighborhood! Time for me to re-live my 20s? Perhaps ;-)
I have mentioned it before with regards to Ruby Tap, but this time it applies to Arté: as a former Drews' Variety Store employee (worked there part-time for probably about seven years, through high school and college) it is just so cool to see what the former variety store building is being used for now! Never ever would I have guessed businesses as much fun and hip as Ruby Tap, Yo Mama, now Arté would go in there.
