Tickets to Avalon Theater Pre-Opening Party Now Online

The website is up that allows people to purchase tickets online to the Avalon Theater Pre-Opening Party!!! and click on the Happenings Tab for the Avalon Theater ticket link! On May 20th we will have the party at the Horny Goat Brewing Company, 2011 S 1st Street from 5-8PM.


The purchase of your ticket online will get you free food and soda at the party on the 20th. Moreover, that purchase price will also gain you admission to one of the first three soft openings of the Avalon sometime in mid-summer. The exact dates of the three soft openings will be made public at the party on the 20th. Remember the proceeds of this event will help the Bay View Historical Society make their facility handicapped accessible and restore the front porch. Thanks again to Lee Barczak from the Avalon and the folks at the Horny Goat Brewing Company for making this a reality!!!


BTW, I just purchased my ticket online. You may want to purchase your tickets ASAP as there are only 300 available seats per night. Once each night is filled, including the first night there no longer will be an opportunity to purchase those tickets.

Project Clean and Green Information

PROJECT CLEAN AND GREEN FOR BAY VIEW AREA IS APRIL 22ND TO APRIL 28 . That date range applies if you live north of Morgan, south of Becher, west of the lake but east of 13th Street. PROJECT CLEAN AND GREEN FOR THE REST OF OUR DISTRICT IS MAY 13 TO MAY 19TH. 

Watch out for special tags attached to your garbage carts starting March 31st to give you more precise details such as your exact garbage pick up date.

PROJECT CLEAN & GREEN is a City-wide program designed to foster neighborhood pride and ownership through coordinated clean ups, street and alley sweeping, graffiti removal and neighborhood beautification activities sponsored by community organizations. Collection Crews will target one zone each week and collect extra items left at the collection point on the scheduled collection day.

Residents within the targeted zone can place unwanted furniture, mattresses, household items, up to 2 cubic yards of tree trimmings, up to 5 tires and extra recyclables at the collection point on their scheduled collection day. Crews will not collect appliances, TVs, electronics, construction debris, paint, grass, yard waste or more than 2 cubic yard of tree trimmings. These items can be taken to a City self help site for proper disposal. Household hazardous waste can be taken to 3879 W Lincoln Avenue on Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays from 7AM – 3PM.

If your neighborhood desires to schedule a group cleanup, you can contact Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful at or 272-5462 for cleanup bags, gloves or to borrow a limited number of clean up tools (rakes, shovels, brooms). 

This is your opportunity to get rid of excess household debris at no cost. After your Clean & Green week, there will be a $50-$150 charge for all bulky pickup requests larger than 1 cubic yard (about the size of an easy chair).
