Bartolotta Catering @ The Grain Exchange
225 E. Michigan Street, Ste #5 Milwaukee Wisconsin, 53202


Straight from the headlines, Milwaukee is being hailed as the “Midwest’s coolest city,” an “unexpected gem.” Our fine city is in the national spotlight for its diverse neighborhoods, thriving culinary scene, and downtown building boom. From world-famous museums and festivals to beer gardens and bike trails, we really do have it all. Milwaukee is en vogue!

Help us celebrate at the city’s 173rd birthday. Join us at the Milwaukee Press Club’s signature event, the City Birthday Party, on January 31st at The Grain Exchange. Not only will we toast the city’s celebrity status, we’ll recognize the people who are putting Milwaukee on the map.

Who are Milwaukee’s game changers? Who would you put on a magazine cover? We’ll be taking your nominations for “cover stories.” Stay tuned!

Advanced registration is $35 per person and $40 per person at the door the night of the event. Your ticket includes the opportunity to network with fellow Milwaukeans, gourmet food stations by Bartolotta Catering, complimentary beer, birthday cake and a gift for you to take home. Advanced registration is suggested and can be done by booking below.  Checks may be mailed to the MPC at PO Box 176, North Prairie, WI  53153-0176. Cancellations will be accepted up to 48 hours in advance for a full refund.
