Grand Opening at Tribeca GalleryCafe in Walker’s Point
The café location is at 1318 S. 1st Street, Milwaukee in the Freshwater Plaza.
Walker Point’s newest café, Tribeca GalleryCafe located in the Freshwater Plaza, is having a Grand Opening celebration this weekend. This is the second shop for owner Julie Crnkovich who started her first shop in Watertown 11 years ago. The name Tribeca, is taken from the Manhattan neighborhood of the same name, which provided many memorable weekends full of festivities, art, culture, music, delightful cafes and bistros. The owner has successfully brought that foundation to her existing business and now will bring that to her Walker’s Point location. “Tribeca GalleryCafe has a strong commitment to supporting the community and strengthening its’ artistic and cultural talent” said Crnkovich. In addition, Tribeca has established a partnership with the Next Door Foundation by creating a Literary Latte. This social cause latte is a cross between a well-known novel and a latte creation. Purchasing this drink contributes 30 cents to the Foundation. “It’s a great way to support an organization which contributes to the literacy and wellbeing of Milwaukee children and families” said Crnkovich. Grand Opening festivities include a photography show by Bay View photographer Kristine Hinrichs, live music performed by Kellie Kuehl, a book sale, a children’s story time, and a Liege waffle bar complete with ice cream, strawberries, and other toppings. Festivities start at 4pm on Friday and will run through the weekend. The café location is at 1318 S. 1st Street, Milwaukee in the Freshwater Plaza.
