An editor from the Shepherd Express recently called me and mentioned they would like to interview local celebreties about where they enjoy a good adult beverage. I unassumingly asked who they had in mind, that I would be happy to put him in contact with someone. He laughed as he told me I was the local celebrity. Who knew I had slowly risen through the ranks to reach “local celebrity” status? The Shepherd, that’s who.
The piece came out today, and they even drew a picture of me to accompany it!
I went with John Hawks Pub as a fun and unique place to grab a drink. Especially in the summer when you can sit outside along the river.
Here is the blurb they printed:
Kemple is a gentle powerhouse whose impact on comedy and play development in Milwaukee is increasingly remarkable. He loves the outdoor seating along the river at Hawks where he drinks IPAs, especially the Lakefront Brewery’s version. The Pub is a close neighbor to Pink Banana’s busy Underground Collaborative performance space in the Plankinton Building Downtown. “It’s so relaxing by the river and the view is fantastic,” he explained. “I forget that the city has such beautiful spots!”
