The North Oakland Avenue British pub celebrated two years in Shorewood last weekend by having a little fun with the "Harlem Shake."
Three Lions Pub caught the "Harlem Shake" fever last weekend — on its birthday no less. The North Oakland Avenue British pub commemorated two years in Shorewood by having a little fun and joining the Internet meme. Harlem Shake is the latest Internet meme, "with people everywhere grabbing a bunch of friends, schoolmates, colleagues, or whomever, really, and having a 30-second dance extravaganza," as Slate put it. The Atlantic Wire also has a good run-down of the Harlem Shake. USA Today has an article explaining the key ingredients of a good Harlem Shake. Do we understand it? Not really. Are they funny to watch? Absolutely.

The owners of Three Lions Pub are teaming up with other Oakland Avenue businesses to throw a block party, offering live music and drinks on the street.
In addition to pro cyclists entertaining the masses in Shorewood in Thursday's Shorewood Criterium, race-goers can take in live music, drinks and food in the village with a few local taverns and restaurants partnering to launch a street festival in Kensington Square.

With 12 spaces eliminated due to a new development, Shorewood worked with one local business, and removed a few no parking signs, to add 17 spots to the congested area.
Finding a parking spot while venturing out for a night on the village may be a little less painful with 17 new spots added to the area through an agreement with the village and a local business and the removal of a few 'no parking' signs. Shorewood officials say although the new Cornerstone development provided sufficient off-street and on-street parking, new additions to the 4500 block of North Oakland Avenue including NaNa Asian Fusion, Three Lions Pub and Big Bay Brewery, have put additional strain on demand for on-street parking spaces. Construction on a new development coined Ravenna has eliminated 12 parking spaces and isn’t expected to wrap up until July. The co-owner of Three Lions, David Price, says he has fielded several …

Following fire at British-style tavern, the former pub's two managers and longtime friends realized their local slice of home in Three Lions Pub.
The English pub is homogeneous to a community hub, providing a venue for locals to come and expound on culture, David Price says. It's much more than just a place to grab a "pint and a bite." “It's a place to go watch soccer, a cozy little pub like back home, where you can come on your own and read a book or come with 20 people and have a party,” Price said. Price and longtime friend Christopher Tinker both grew up in small towns situated between Manchester and Liverpool in the United Kingdom, where they came to digest the paramountcy of the local pub to the English communities they serve. They made the journey to Milwaukee in early 2003, on scholarships to play soccer and study at Cardinal Stritch University, in a group of five. It was in…

Come out to an informal gathering Tuesday to meet your local editor and celebrate Patch's first year in Shorewood.
It's hard to believe, but a year has already come and gone since Shorewood Patch started bringing you news and information about your community. It was a slow beginning as we started in the community from the ground up, but overall it has been a great year and with many reasons to celebrate. We'll be hosting an informal, laid-back party from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Three Lions Pub at 4515 N. Oakland Ave. in downtown Shorewood. Stop in and share your thoughts about Patch, and have a beer or two with your local editor and other Patch staff. Although the invitation says 7 p.m., the party will likely go a bit later.

The group moved to Three Lions Pub, where they recited original limericks, poetry, music about 8th Senate recall election incumbent Sen. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills).
