Originally founded as the Seattle Pilots in 1969, the Milwaukee Brewers have brought Major League Baseball to Wisconsin since 1970. The team played its first 30 seasons at Milwaukee County Stadium; Miller Park opened its gates in 2001, featuring field dimensions mapped out by legendary Brewer Robin Yount. Today, up to 41,900 fans pack into Miller Park to cheer on their home team as well as The Famous Racing Sausages and Bernie the Brewer, who soars down his iconic slide to celebrate home runs or cheer himself up after burning popcorn inside his elevated left-field clubhouse.
For the past 20 years, Madison Auto Detail’s technicians have freed cars from workaday grime and highway-born detritus with restorative detail services performed seven days a week. Crews spruce up vehicles inside and out with a spectrum of detailing packages, from an express service to a diligent total-vehicle overhaul. They unearth and evict stagnant smells burrowed in the vents and upholstery and hand wax and buff exteriors, leaving the surface smooth, shiny, and as reflective as a meditation circle conducted on a mirror. Madison Auto Detail also vends à la carte services, such as scotch guarding, paintless dent removal, and engine detailing.
The automotive aestheticians at Genius Car Wash and Detail enlist a speedy and thorough 90-foot conveyor to help them scrub cars clean. Each automated wash employs a three-step process—a high-pressure prep wash, Smart Foam residue remover, and two modes of water treatment—to free roadsters of bugs and weather-related build up. Drivers can lavish their rides a little longer with three types of detailing packages, or opt for à la carte services such engine degreasing or a machine buff and clay-bar treatment. To avoid gridlock caused by pedestrians gawking at newly vacuumed upholstery, car owners can drop off their steel chariots for tinting services, which darken window panes in a host of shades.
Having honed his aviation skills in helicopter cockpits for 45+ years, the head pilot at Midwestern Helicopter leads a team of FAA–certified pilots in performing helicopter tours, charters, and pilot instruction. They steer a fleet of three Robinson R-44s and two R-22s over cityscapes and country vistas with photographers, pollinators, surveyors, or sightseers onboard, continuing a crash- and speeding-ticket-free record begun with the company's inception four years ago. The flight team acquaints new flyers with immediate actual flight experience during introductory flights and helps students to achieve private, commercial, and flight-instructor certification during FAA courses. As authorized merchants of Robinson aircraft, they can also hawk helicopters or perform maintenance on various models inside heated hangars without having to first notify the aircraft's next of kin.
Celebrating 20 years as one of Wisconsin’s largest Hyundai dealers, Arrow Hyundai’s trained mechanics provide routine checkups to maintain a vehicle’s full and active lifestyle. Upon arrival, the one-hour pampering procedure starts by changing out old, crotchety oil and rejuvenating engines with the youthful vigor of a new filter (a $29.95 value). A tire rotation grabs the attention of wayward asphalt with improved traction and gas mileage (a $19.95 value), and detail-oriented technicians administer a 34-point inspection to check breaks and interrogate faulty parts (a $26.95 value). The grand finale sends cars back to their owners with a spiffed up appearance, as grimy peripheral shells are soaped down and the true colors of lint-coated backseats exposed (a $15.95 value).
