Wednesday on Lake Effect: Former Common Council President, Wisconsin Foodie, Twisted Path Distillery

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

On the eve of a panel that brings together the four African-Americans who have served as Milwaukee Common Council President, we talk with one of them about history, challenges - and his brief term as mayor. Later, the TV show Wisconsin Foodie celebrates 10 years of celebrating the people who grow, prepare, and consume food here. And from food to drink… we go behind the scenes at a Milwaukee distillery to learn how flouting conventions in the liquor-world can lead to better results.
