What we're about

Welcome to Milwaukee Single Professionals (MSP)! Are you a woman looking to meet other girlfriends? Are you a man looking to establish a solid group of guy friends? Are you new to the Milwaukee area and looking to explore the city and its surroundings?

If so, this group is for you! We are single, fun professionals ages 25-49 who want to build on our circle of friends and connections, while having a blast and enjoying the journey of life!

Although this group is for singles, it is NOT a dating group. The events are set up in relaxed atmospheres to facilitate friendly interactions. We will post a range of events including happy hours, dining events, outdoor activities, festivals, trivia/game nights, charity events, and our very popular meet-and-greets.

Please note: If you have a history of blanketing events with RSVPs, then not showing up or updating your RSVP, this group is not for you.

3 "no shows" will result in your removal from this group. A no show is when a member RSVP to an event, but does not show AND does not update their RSVP before the start of the event.

MKE Food Adventure @ Damascus Gate

Needs a location

MKE Food Adventures are back! For those of you who have never come to one of these events before, we pick a great spot in Milwaukee that represents a specific cuisine and does it really well. We've been wanting to host an event at Damascus Gate for awhile now, so we're very excited to invite you to join us for a meal of deliciously authentic Syrian food. Seriously, their hummus is the best in town.

According to their website, "Damascus Gates is a Middle Eastern restaurant offering a variety of authentic and traditional dishes from the rich and famously delicious kitchens in the Middle East... The name of the restaurant is also reflective of its will and commitment to empower Syrian refugees and giving them a chance to prosper after their arrival in the US from war torn Syria. For that reason, Syrian refugees are actively involved in the management and operation of our restaurant."

You can find their menu here: https://damascusgatemilwaukee.com/menu/

Syrian food is a Middle Eastern cuisine that includes the use of ingredients like eggplant, meat (often lamb), rice, chick peas, cucumbers, pistachios, and many others. Meals often begin with "mezze," selections of appetizers served with Arabic bread before the main course. Typical mezze include baba ghanoush, falafel, hummus, kebbeh, and moussaka - all of which can be found on Damascus Gate's menu! If you want to try them all (and share with a friend or three), you should order the Damascus Tour. We get this as takeout all the time and it feeds the two of us for a good three meals each. Other typical Syrian dishes include different kinds of kababs (even Ryan can eat these!), stuffed grape leaves, and toshka (grilled meat in more of a sandwich form). Our recommendation is to get an entree/sandwich or make your own selection of appetizers.

We're really excited to get the MKE Food Adventure series going again, and we have a lot of delicious restaurants to share with you in the upcoming months. We look forward to seeing you at Damascus Gate - bring your appetite! And seriously, try the hummus.

Book Club: Station Eleven, by Emily St John Mandel

Needs a location

And the winner of our next book club meetup selection is …

Station Eleven, by Emily St John Mandel

An audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse—the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity.

Bring a chair or blanket as we’ll be meeting at Lake Park. I’ll arrive early and post here how to find me and the group, but it will be relatively close to the traveling beer garden.

Happy reading! 🤓📚

MKE Food Adventure @ Chef Paz (Peruvian)

Needs a location

Back by popular demand! It's been three years since we did a Food Adventure at Chef Paz, and we're excited to share this amazing cuisine with you.

Yep. It’s back to South America when MSP heads over to Chef Paz for some authentic Peruvian food! Chef Paz is the real deal. All the Peruvians we know in Milwaukee (this is actually a small handful) have told us so. Plus we (Allison and Eric) have eaten here a dozen times. Allison says of Peruvian cuisine:

“A very diverse cuisine, with influences from its indigenous past and also from recent waves of immigration. Ancient grains like quinoa are staples in parts of the country, while coastal regions have tons of fresh seafood (which is why ceviche is such a popular dish). Due to Chinese and Japanese immigrants, Peru has its own version of stir fry, called “chaufa,” which can be made with rice or quinoa as the base. Also a friendly cuisine for meat-and-potato types (like Ryan), as many dishes incorporate both ingredients, along with lots of bell peppers. Eating guinea pigs and/or alpacas is purely optional (and not available at Chef Paz).”

Some of our favorites from our dining experiences at Chef Paz include the Tacu Tacu (a rice and bean pancake with your choice of meat), the eschabeche de pescado (a fried fish served with sweet potato), beef stew with cilantro sauce, and lomo saltado (strips of tenderloin with onions and tomatoes in soy sauce). The full menu can be found here: http://chefpaz.iquitosenlinea.com/

This is one of our favorites in Milwaukee and we hope it will become one of yours. We look forward to eating with you on the 20th.
