It’s been two weeks since venues throughout Milwaukee (and everywhere else, for that matter) closed their doors for the foreseeable future. Some performance spaces decided to cancel or postpone events and shut down even earlier than that. Though it’s been but a fortnight, it feels like forever. Doesn’t it?

Before everything fully went down, we had planned to make some updates to our Calendar section by having a professional photographer take pictures of a bunch of Milwaukee venues. Of course, there won’t be much use for those pictures in the near future. However, seeing photos of some of these spots made our day a little bit better. So we figured we’d show them to you now in the hope that seeing some of your favorite venues might make this dreary Monday spent in self-isolation a little easier to take.
