    This is great to see. Now add an outdoor Christmas market from Thanksgiving until Christmas complete with those German chalets selling food etc.

    Glad to see it’s becoming a neighborhood now! Let’s keep it going and look to make it a sustainable area for growth. Add a grocery store as part of that and let’s look at capping 43.

    Spot on, Jerry. Milwaukee is so ready for a Christkindlemarket during the holidays. Then imagine Stille Nacht (Silent Night) performed on the amazing organ at the stunning St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church (Evangelische Luth. St. Johanneskirche) just over the McKinley Blvd pedestrian bridge from the Pabst Brewery at 8th and Vliet. Built in Gothic Revival style in 1889, it is considered to be one of the finest examples of German Lutheran church architecture in the United States. German Americans during WWI were seen as anti American and unpatriotic unless they renounced the cultural traditions of their homeland – there are lessons for today and Milwaukee should be proud of all of our rich ethnic heritage.

    The area is perfect for an outdoor market. The indoor Christkindlmarket used to have more vendors and had more of a family atmosphere. Not it just has a veneer of a market and has turned into an excuse to drink. In 2016 there was a loud band in the main hall, making it impossible to talk. It was a rock band to boot – at least a polka band or something like that would be more authentic. We decided not to go again if this was what it was going to be in the future.
