Tucked between the office towers of downtown and the shadow of the Battleship Wisconsin is a great place for evening fun. Something happening every weekend, free live music on Friday night and beer/wine coolers are available. Harborfest may be the biggest party in the area, but for my money try the Cinco de Mayo or Bayou Boogaloo bashes. Great music, great food, great people.
Pros: outdoor fun, near everything, parking available
Cons: rain, can be crowded, parking is expensive
