Progressive Ethnic Meal Tour—Explore Milwaukee’s German, Irish, Polish, and Italian History

Join us for a Progressive Ethnic Meal through Milwaukee’s Old World 3rd Street, Historic Third Ward, Milwaukee’s lakefront, and Brady Street. 

  • Our meal will begin with an overview of Milwaukee’s German history, and sample sausage, cheese and beer or root beer at the Wisconsin Cheese Mart, plus shopping time on Old World 3rd Street.

  • We will then travel to the Historic Third Ward and learn about Milwaukee’s Irish history and stop at the Milwaukee Public Market for a bit of shopping. 

  • Enjoy a generous family-style lunch at Milwaukee’s last remaining Polish restaurant, complete with green salad, cheese pierogi, mashed potatoes, sauerkraut, Polish sausage, pork cutlets, red cabbage, milk, tea, soda.

  • After lunch, the tour will continue along Milwaukee’s lakefront, then on to Brady Street, Milwaukee’s Italian enclave.  Here we will stop at Peter Sciortino’s bakery for cannoli and shopping. We will also visit Glorioso’s Deli for more shopping.

  • We’ll end the tour with a custard dessert, and return to UW-Manitowoc.
