Take Me Out to the Sandlot
There are two strips of bars
that are conveniently close to Miller Park—for before or after Milwaukee Brewers
games. One is along Bluemound Avenue and the other on National Avenue, across
from the VA Medical Center. A newcomer to this group is the Sandlot Bar and
Grill (4823 W. National Ave.), its interior filled with scattered bits of baseball
memorabilia. The menu is basic but offers proper sports bar fare. Burgers are a
third or half pound and are customized to order. Wednesday and Saturday feature
cheap chicken wings and for something spicy try a bacon-wrapped jalapeño
popper. A highlight is the Italian beef sandwich.
Prices are inexpensive—a lot cheaper than in the ballpark.
