There’s plenty to do in Milwaukee this week. The Harley-Davidson Museum Bike Night is returning for the first time since the pandemic began. There are a couple of fundraiser events this weekend, with the Take Steps drive-in concert and the UPAF Ride for the Arts both taking place. Swing by West Milwaukee park for a Sprecher’s beverage at the Milwaukee County Parks Traveling Beer Garden.

June 3: Pints & Putts with Third Space Brewing

Third Space Brewing, 1505 W. Saint Paul Ave., is bringing a putting green to Estabrook Beer Garden.  The brewery will have their Midwest Pale Ale, Happy Place, on tap and will be pouring beer samples. Attendees will have the chance to win some Third Space merchandise on the putting green. The event in Milwaukee’s Munich Style beer garden runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

June 3-6: Traveling Beer Garden at West Milwaukee Park

Milwaukee County Parks’ Pass Me a Pint traveling beer garden is returning at West Milwaukee Park this weekend. The beer garden, in the form of a firetruck outfitted by Sprecher Brewing Co., serves the brewery’s craft beers, hard sodas and root beer, as well as Klement’s brats, Milwaukee Pretzel Company’s giant pretzels and Triciclo Peru’s empanadas. The beer garden will be open Thursday and Friday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

June 3: Harley-Davidson Museum Bike Night Concert Series

The Harley-Davidson Museum, 400 W. Canal St., is throwing its first Bike Night since the pandemic. All types of bikes are welcome to the free event featuring drinks, food and live music. The event will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and will continue throughout the summer every Thursday night.

June 6: Milwaukee Take Steps Drive-in Concert

Take Steps, a fundraising walk that raises money to combat Crohn’s and Colitis, is taking a different approach this year. In lieu of the event’s traditional walk, there will instead be a drive-in concert at the Wisconsin State Fair grounds featuring Amanda Huff, Moses, Slang Troubadour, Mic Crawf and Rising Suns. There are two ways to participate — you can register here to begin raising funds and have access to the drive-in concert, or you can tune in to the livestream and watch virtually. The event begins at 1:15 p.m. and will run until 3 p.m.

June 6: Day One of UPAF Ride for the Arts 2021

UPAF Ride for the Arts 2021 will kickoff this weekend with a bike ride that will span three weekends, starting Sunday, June 6th. Riders will begin their trip on their own schedule, following directions on the Ride Spot app. Rides will be completed at some point between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Upon completing the ride, cyclists will receive a Miller Lite drawstring backpack full of gifts, and a variety of UPAF artists will perform.
