Select Local Merchants

The cozy interior of George Street Cafe, once known to locals as the Chatterhouse, makes it an ideal place to hang out for a drink or dinner, or munch on items from the lounge menu during the in-between times. Regular events include a rousing karaoke night, vinyl night, and ladies' night, as well as 35-cent wings every Tuesday. Customers can pair their snacks with a glass of wine, or a beer drawn from one of the lineup of taps along the bar. George Street Cafe welcomes family gatherings, private parties, and business meetings.

Despite its veteran status as Wisconsin's oldest comedy club, Comedy City maintains the sharp wit and punchline-rattling agility of a toddler at its new Sports Corner location. The 90-minute shows are made up of short and long bursts of improvisational comedy, with the troupe of comedians channeling their inner Thalia or Super Dave Osborne on the fly, without the aid of a script or Internet commenters. Audience members will shout out key words or phrases to prompt a theme as the cast crafts an entire skit around the suggestions, similar to the process for creating legislation. With up to five performances each weekend, no show is ever quite the same. Pub grub, such as pizza, wings, cheese curds, potato skins and chicken tenders (all under $8), and a full bar are part of the fun of an impromptu night out with friends. Stretch your cheek muscles and bend your funny bone into a pretzel at Comedy City at the Sports Center. Go online to check out the schedule or reserve your tickets.

Karaoke tends to be a special event at many bars, but not at The Bluff Pub and Grille. Here karaoke is welcome any time a patron feels like crooning aloud a favorite song or a business rival’s credit card number on the restaurant’s TouchTunes machine. Professional musicians, meanwhile, often stop by in the summer to rock out on The Bluff’s deck, nestled beside stunning views of the bay. The culinary team takes full advantage of its water view location with plenty of tasty seafood options, including omelets filled with shrimp, crab, and house-made garlic-chive cream sauce. For dinner, chefs whip up everything from broasted chicken with house-made stuffing to handmade pizzas crowned with fixings such as jalapeños and sauerkraut.

The seasoned chefs at Broadway Lounge and Grill dish up a palate-pleasing menu of savory sandwiches, juicy burgers, and fresh fish to complement the establishment's fully stocked bar. Lubricate stomach longing for libations with domestic pitchers ($6), pints ($2), and bottles ($2) before diving face first into the Broadway combo, a hearty platter of chicken strips, mushrooms, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, and freshly crisped fries ($8.95). The brat burger celebrates the marriage of meats with a quarter-pound brat patty and a quarter-pound hamburger nestled beside a mound of homemade, hand-cut fries and a pickle spear ($6.95). Lightly floured and fried until crispy crooners serenade a soft, tender inside, the pan-fried walleye filet comes with a side salad or cup of soup and a choice of potato, including baked, mashed, garlic mashed, fries, sweet potato fries, or wild rice ($13.95). Broadway Lounge and Grill boasts a Friday fish fry, live entertainment, free WiFi for writing electronic lovelorn sonnets, and ample parking for pickup trucks, segways, and sedans.
