Tis the season to give thanks. We are tremendously thankful to our readers, and to all who’ve become Urban Milwaukee members.

But we know many of you just haven’t gotten around to becoming members and are perhaps waiting for just the gentle nudge — or perhaps an incredible one-time deal — to push you to join. Which brings us to our, ahem, Thanksgiving Week 40% Off Membership Deal.

That’s right, for this week only, through Friday at midnight, our annual membership is almost half-off, costing only $60 for the year, and you easily take care of that: join here.

Still hesitating? Wondering what will you get by becoming a member? Quite a lot, actually:

  • An environment free of banner ads that provides faster page loads and a unique, editorial-only experience.
  • A better, faster photo browser on the website
  • Invitations to member-only events held at a number of unique Milwaukee businesses with a chance to meet and converse with Urban Milwaukee staff. For example, we recently toured and sampled beer at Gathering Place Brewery.
  • Behind-the-scenes tours of new, under-construction and classic Milwaukee buildings. We have a number of tours in the works for 2018, including a tour of the Masonic Center slated for conversion to a hotel and a tour of the transformative, downtown North End complex.
  • The chance to get free tickets to concerts, festivals and other events as they become available through our partners. In 2017 we’ve given away tickets to Summerfest, the Wisconsin State Fair, the Florentine Opera, Milwaukee Film Festival, Pridefest, Early Music Now and even Bublr Bikes passes. There is something for everyone.
  • Access to an advertising-free email daily or weekly email
  • Providing support that will assure Urban Milwaukee can continue focusing on smart, substantive news coverage rather than clickbait.

The list price for all that is $9.00 month or $99 a year, but this week you can claim our Thanksgiving Week special and sign up for just $60 annual membership. Signing up is easy, and use the code GobbleGobble to get your discounted membership.

Our publication continues to grow its editorial coverage, publishing more than 35 stories and 70 press releases per week, and its readership, now at 150,000 regular users and 530,000 page views per month. But we need more financial support to continue growing.

We’re also responding to the many readers who’ve asked over the years how they can support Urban Milwaukee. This is your chance to do so.

This is not a paywall, but simply an option for readers who like the idea of becoming Urban Milwaukee insiders who get invited to special, editorial-oriented events. Or who simply want to support a valued publication. Readers who don’t want to subscribe won’t notice any changes in the publication and will continue to view ads that also help support Urban Milwaukee.

Those who’ve followed Urban Milwaukee for years, since it was a feisty niche publication, have seen how we’ve grown 25-fold in readership and content. We’ve launched a new events calendar, the city’s only Political Contribution Tracker and are in the final stages of preparing the city’s only data-driven Dining Guide.

We are committed to building a fiercely independent, powerful publication that champions Milwaukee and smart urban solutions for this city. If you think that’s important or you simply like being a reader in the know, we hope you will consider becoming a member.
