Every Friday, Stuff We Missed looks to other Milwaukee publications (and beyond) for, well, stuff we missed throughout the week.

• Isn’t it funny that certain local websites toil away day in and day out, highlighting the best in Milwaukee music, dining, and culture, and the only time other groups and folks share something to their vast audiences is when outside websites write about Milwaukee? Weird, huh?

Anyway, Milwaukee made some outside-website lists this week, and everyone got excited. (Sorry, our Great Job Milwaukee bot, which usually handles these things, is in the shop.) “Milwaukee is the 16th best city for young professionals!” proclaimed Forbes, and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Milwaukee Business Journal, TMJ4, the mayor, and probably Milverine all shared the big news. Sixteenth!

Meanwhile, did HGTV include Milwaukee in its AI-generated list of the “25 Best Hiking Cities in the United States”? You bet it did. And did everyone share that big news? You bet they did. (Note: We have no proof that these lists are AI-generated, but they almost have to be at this point, right?)

Oh well, we’re totally not bitter. Did Forbes write about local rapper Vincent Van Great throwing out the first pitch at last week’s Brewers game? Did HGTV write about the new Rat Bath single? We think not! [Milwaukee Record]
