    Just wanted to say this was a good description. I have been going to this facility for over 22 years and my parents and grandparents before that. I belong to Polish Falcons of America and am quiet active. If ever interested learning about about this history I can bring it up to our board to have you come in and chat a bit! It is truly quiet interesting.

    I learned so much more from reading your article about The Falcon Hall than I’d known before, Michael Horne! And it’s certainly become a place where lots of Eastsiders commune for all sorts of events and activities!

    Two Milwaukee treasures: a classic tavern and a writer with an eye for vivid detail.

    We trained with NorthShore German Shephard Club at the Falcons years ago

    Bowled there in pee wee leagues and jr leagues 35-40 yrs ago, knew all the familys that have owned the bar over the years. Have family members who have worked and frequented the establishment for longer than that, glad to hear its still open and the bowling is still going on. God Bless

    My Dad owned the bar in the 70s. It was called Solski’s Polish Falcons until he died in 1976. My Mom and Dad though had their Wedding there in 1942.
