Everyone Likes a Big Bang

It’s summer in Brew Town and that means beer, brats, Brewers, boys and babes! Toss in a few explosives and you’ve got one helluva celebration. That’s just what you’ll find this week in Cream City. From Summerfest craziness to lakeside celebrations, the hits keep coming when the sun shines in Milwaukee. Think I’m exaggerating? Well, screw you! Take a look at the weekly happenings and plan your long weekend accordingly—but first, let’s read an email from a reader.


Dear Ruthie,

Girl to girl: I’m having trouble with the big “O,” if you know what I mean. I’ve always heard that women’s orgasms get stronger and better with age, but at the age of 41 mine seem to be diminishing in strength. Is this normal? I don’t think it’s the men in my life, but I’m also not about to rule that out either. Any clue what might going on? Any exercises or techniques that I should be practicing?

Help a Girl Out,
Unsatisfied Sue

Dear Susie Q,

Everyone wants to bang out a good one (or seven) during Independence Day, honey. There’s no shame in that game! When your grand finale feels more like a dud, however, it’s time to do some investigating. After all, if the engine’s not firing on all cylinders you’d have an expert check under the hood, right? No…I’m not suggesting you screw a mechanic, although if the opportunity knocks, let your freak flag fly!


But seriously, go to the doctor, sugar. I’m far from an expert, so see your doc and let him/her know that light has gone out of your sparkler. I’m sure you’ll be back to your old self soon!


Ruthie’s Social Calendar


June 28: Opening Day of Summerfest at Summerfest Grounds (200 N. Harbor Drive): If PrideFest whetted your whistle for more lakefront fun, then don’t miss this granddaddy of all musical festivals. Free concerts, savory foods, sweet treats and lots and lots of beer make Summerfest one warm-weather celebration you don’t want to miss. Swing by Milwaukee’s biggest bash until July 2, or check out Round 2, which runs July 4 through July 9.


June 29: Jazz in the Park at Cathedral Square (812 N. Jackson St.): Want to celebrate the upcoming holiday but don’t want to fight the firework crowds? Consider a cool night at this hot spot. Held every Thursday from 6-9 p.m., this free concert offers food, adult libations and great mingling, people watching and friend making.


June 30: Windy City Open Beach Party at Kathy Osterman Beach (5800 N. Lake Shore Drive, Chicago): Party in Windy City in a whole new way when the Athletic Alliance of Chicago (AAC) hosts this LGBTQ beach bash! Play some free games of volleyball, enjoy some refreshments, meet some new people and soak in some sun during the 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. sandy soiree. 


June 30: Transformation Showgirls at La Cage Niteclub (801 S. Second St.): Local diva Nova D’Vine hosts this 11 p.m. drag show featuring the city’s best in female illusion, music, dancing and more. A view of Nova’s costumes alone is worth the $6 door charge. Haven’t been to La Cage in a bit? This glamor-girl revue is the perfect reason to check it out!


July 2: P!NK at The Marcus Amphitheater (200 N. Harbor Drive): Hip, hip, hooray! P!NK brings her self-titled tour to Cream City today! The songstress got a big thumbs up from folks the last time she performed in Milwaukee, and this tour promises the same excitement. Tickets range greatly in price, so see summerfest.com for more on the 7:30 p.m. concert.


July 3: Milwaukee Lakefront Fireworks at Veterans Park (1010 N. Lincoln Memorial Drive): For the biggest and the best sky show in the city, don’t miss the infamous fireworks at Veterans Park. The no-fail jaw dropper is a great, free way to ring on the Fourth of July for kids of all ages. Get your “oohs and ahs” ready for the 9 p.m. event.
