U.S. Senate Candidates Tommy Thompson and Tammy Baldwin hold their first of three debates tonight in Milwaukee. The hour long debates will be broadcast on WMLW and Telemundo starting at 8pm.

According to OnMilwaukee.com, beINtween.org created a "pop-up" park under the Holton Avenue Bride off of Water Street, by adding five new swings to the space. The installation is meant to bring attention to leftover spaces in our city. A time-lapse video of the swings being installed can be found on our Facebook page.

Two-Thirds of the Wisconsin Public Service Commission stated yesterday that the costs to move underground power lines, communications cords and steam tunnels for the streetcar tracks should be shared between the utility companies and the city.  A final decision is still under negotiation.

Tonight, Made in Milwaukee presents another installment of Bay View Gallery Night, a celebration of art, music and community.
