The Five O’Clock Steakhouse’s 10th annual Vintage Car Show in support of Dryhootch Milwaukee and Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative was a big success last weekend and I’m very proud of my team. The weather was beautiful, the array of gorgeous classic vehicles was amazing and the camaraderie and vibe was just incredible.

Thanks to Charles Barber, Brett & the Dandys and Kitty Soft Paw for the top-notch live music and thanks to Pina’s Mexican Eats for the excellent food.

Thanks, also to Milwaukee Police Department, the great staff of Five O’Clock Steakhouse, the owners of the beautiful cars and everyone else who was there. I appreciate you and we look forward to next year’s event!In addition to donating proceeds from this event, Five O’Clock Steakhouse, where I am managing partner, will also donate a portion of June sales to Dryhootch and Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative to help them continue their important work on behalf of those who have served.

Dryhootch is a place where Veterans can gather informally in a coffee house run by and for Veterans; a safe, comfortable, drug-and-alcohol-free environment, and Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative provides the services that homeless and at-risk veterans need to reach and maintain their highest level of independence.
