'I Closed Wolski's' Book Party

Close Wolski's Tavern, and receive the famous "I Closed Wolski's" bumper sticker, with Jim Draeger and Mark Speltz, co-authors of "Bottoms Up: A Toast to Wisconsin's Historic Bars & Breweries." The book celebrates Wisconsin's taverns — including Wolski's, which first opened in 1908 — and the breweries that fueled them. Beginning with inns and saloons, the book explores the rise of taverns and breweries, the effects of temperance and Prohibition, and attitudes about gender, ethnicity and morality. The book features 70 taverns and breweries from around the state.
The event allows for one-on-one conversations with the authors. Signed copies of the book will be available for sale.
