Spring in Downtown Waukesha

Now that the weather is nice enough for me to take a walk on my lunch hour, I have the opportunity to check out all the new and changing things around downtown.

You have probably heard about the Generations at 5 Points/Smokey O's switchero. Generations still has the shades drawn on the front and Smokey O's has paper on the windows. I hope these businesses open soon.

225 South is coming along nicely. The new dark paint color and sign really make the spot look classy. I can't wait to try the food. I love me some pasta!

Spring City Wine Co. will be opening soon next to the Clarke Hotel. Two wine shops on one street is heaven for me. I'm interested to find out more about the wine machines this shop will have.

Crush Wine Bar is having their Grand Opening this weekend with tastings, music, events and more all weekend long. Be sure to check it out. I'm a big fan of the place already!

Fruit of the Spirits Candles is going to be having their Grand Opening on May 2, the same day at the first Farmer's market of the season, Riverwalk for Breast Cancer and downtown Waukesha Art Crawl. This is a great day to open and get your name out there to the masses.

The former Random Twigs location looks to have some action going on inside. Check out LTE Waukesha for more info. I can't wait to see what that is to become.

Burlap & Lace's Boutique on Broadway is a nice addition to downtown. The clothes are so cute!

Frank's Sewing Center is leaving downtown but staying in the city. I understand their parking lot situation and I wish them good luck in their new location on St. Paul. Now we just need to find some entrepreneurs or established business to fill some holes - Frank's Sewing Center, Horse Emporium and I think there are one or two smaller locations available across the street from these on Main. Let's fill up downtown!

On North Street, I walked by Brew City Salvage and it looks like a great business. I will have to check it out when they are open and see what it's all about.

April 25th is the downtown cleanup from 8 am - noon. If you are available, they would appreciate the help in cleaning up the city. Meet at the Springhouse by Waukesha State Bank and you will be assigned a duty.

May 2nd is a huge weekend in Waukesha - The first Farmer's Market of the season held on the Riverwalk, the Riverwalk for Breast Cancer in Frame Park and the Spring Art Crawl in downtown.

I am probably missing a few things in my report, but I hope to stay up-to-date the best I can and share my downtown Waukesha knowledge with all of you!

Happy Spring Everyone!
