Brady Street Documentary

The Brady St BID is excited to partner with Sean Kafer and docUWM, part of UW-Milwaukee’s film school, on a 1-hour documentary about the history of Brady Street. Sean is bringing real-world experience to the classroom by incorporating students in the production of this project.

The documentary will start with the early immigrant settlements all the way through post-pandemic Brady Street. Residents, local historians, and individuals who’ve greatly impacted the development of Brady Street will be interviewed for the project.

The project is intended to be completed in early 2024 and will be submitted to the Milwaukee Film Festival as well as other national film festivals.

Festivus on Brady | Saturday, Dec 3

Festivus is back, BABY! Join us on Saturday, December 3rd to celebrate everyone’s favorite faux holiday.

Participating bars will have the Bud Light Elves visit to hold the Festivus activities. The airing of grievances gives people the chance to share the #1 thing they hated about 2022, and the Elves pick the best complaint for a prize.

Feats of strength are demonstrated by holding a pail of 6 bottles of Bud Light above your shoulders. Whoever lasts the longest wins the pole. Each participating bar will have a winner for each activity.

The Bud Light Elves festivities schedule will be released closer to the event date. For more information visit the Festivus on Brady event page.

Former Brewed Café Location Leased!

A new business will be opening this winter at the former Brewed Café location. The space is currently being renovated, and details will be made public soon. The Brady St BID is very excited to welcome this new business owner!
