Allison grew up on the east side of Wauwatosa, and now is a music teacher who lives on the west side of Tosa with her husband Nick. She enjoys working with a couple local non-profits, playing out with her wind quintet, listening to live music, attending arts events, baking, cycling, and wine.
I don't know how well-known this is in the area, but however many people do know about the 4 O'Clock Concert Series at First Congregational Church in Wauwatosa, it is not enough.
I'll admit it, I'm a closet sports fan. Although I don't follow many teams specifically until the high-stakes games come around, I do love the excitement of play-off football and baseball, and March Madness basketball.
I am a huge fan of the Village of Wauwatosa, and particularly of what it has become over the last 10+ years. Back when I was in high school and worked at Drews' Variety Store, at break time I loved to walk around the Village and grab a bite to eat. At that time my "lunch" consisted of crazy bread from the dearly (or not so dearly) departed Little Ceasars and a smoothie from Baskin Robbins. If I was feeling really adventurous I'd go for broke with a chocolate feast from Niemann's.
I've mentioned my quintet on this blog before, but usually it is just that - a mention.
