On Tuesday, Jan. 31, the City of Milwaukee celebrates its 177th birthday.

In 1846, the towns of Juneautown, Kilbourntown and Walker’s Point merged into one entity: Milwaukee. The city’s first mayor, Solomon Juneau, was elected and the City of Milwaukee was born.

If there’s one thing you should know about our publication, it’s that we really care about Milwaukee.

To celebrate, we’re having a flash deal. Today through Tuesday annual memberships are discounted by $25 — so you pay just $74 for the first year. It’s our way of celebrating a great city’s 177th birthday and ensuring we’re here to tell its story for the years to come. Happy birthday, Milwaukee!

Urban Milwaukee is home to the city’s first news-site membership program. Being a member is like being a Milwaukee insider. And through Tuesday, our annual membership is $25 off for the first year.

    If I renew now will it be added to the end of my current membership? 🙂
