What an advanced form of civilization they must have in Milwaukee:
The county would likely get a percentage of sales from each beer garden. The county's request for proposals suggests a minimum of 15%. "I'm not saying I can pull it off, but I'm putting it before the public," Black said Wednesday. Local breweries and restaurants were contacted to gauge the interest and park advocacy groups were advised of the idea. Formal proposals for a beer garden are due Jan. 20. Local historian John Gurda has agreed to serve as an adviser to the Parks Department on the beer garden idea, Black said. A 2009 article by Gurda described how the upper Milwaukee River once served as a "nearly continuous waterpark," especially the area between North Ave. and Locust St. on the city's east side.
A government program. To introduce beer into city parks. To help pay for services and increase public use of parks. Brilliant. I am actually without smart remark. What is not to love about Wisconsin?
