The state Senator from West Bend published a press release saying it's a holiday "almost no black people today care about." Vote in our poll on the subject.
State Sen. Glenn Grothman's opinion about Kwanzaa — that it is a false holiday that "almost no black people today care about" conjured up by a racist college professor and perpetuated by hard-core liberals — was strongly rebuked by a local Democratic Party leader. Patch users have commented passionately on both sides of the issue, some agreeing, some not and others seeing a couple sides of the argument. If you don't feel like commenting, simply vote in our poll. Or, jump in and join the discussion in the comments.

The event starts at 6 p.m. Monday at the site of the former Riverbrook Restaurant.

The village will hold its “Capitol Celebration” 6 p.m. Monday at the former Riverbrook Restaurant site. “It is fitting that we not only celebrate the completion of the construction, but also take the time to pause, recognize what has been accomplished, and appreciate both the utility and beauty of our new street," Village Manager Chris Swartz said.

Dennis Cox, owner, talks about the pub's character and history.
Even though Shorewood's Village Pub and Grill has been around for decades, Thursday marks five years at the helm and behind the bar for pub owner Dennis Cox and he is taking advantage. An anniversary party 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday boasts a complimentary buffet from guest bartenders, Brewers' ticket giveaways and specials on food and drinks all night long. The Village Pub, 4488 N. Oakland Ave., is a well known part of the neighborhood, according to Cox. The pub was voted best suburban bar by OnMilwaukee.com readers for the last two years. “For people who live in Shorewood, you can come in here and you’re pretty much guaranteed to see someone you know,” he said. Cox said the Village Pub has a certain charm to it. “It’s been around so long…

Even well before 5 o'clock, people were out celebrating their Irish pride.
With St. Patrick's Day upon us, the North Shore certainly had the luck of the Irish Thursday afternoon. We went out and captured all of the different shades of green on the street, in the stores, in the schools and yes- of course, in the bars. Regardless of how you choose to celebrate the holiday, Patch wishes you a happy St. Patrick's Day!
