Have you ever wanted to work at the Public House?
We are currently looking to hire a part-time bartender. We have a very small staff, so there is an opportunity to fill in shifts when co-workers request time off and there are opportunities to work as a secondary bartender on busier nights. This could lead to more shifts in the future depending on our scheduling needs.
The Riverwest Public House is a community owned and supported bar and public space. We are cooperatively managed by a Collective of Workers and do not discriminate in our hiring for any reason. We are an at-will employer.

As an added bonus, we will have WMSE Smash Ale on tap during Locust Street Festival. This limited edition SMASH gets its name from being a Single Malt (roasted in Wisconsin) and Single Hop (grown in Wisconsin) recipe. A portion of the proceeds will go back to WMSE and towards our work to support local music in Milwaukee.

Originally scheduled to be their record release show, Jaill’s fourth full length “Brain Cream” will be coming out on June 30th with their return to Burger Records (Shannon And The Clams, Twin Peaks). You can pre-order the album here.
“Jaill is a Milwaukee band that has made it. They were signed to Sub-Pop, with labelmates like Father John Misty, Beach House, and The Postal Service. Now they are with my personal favorite record label, Burger Records, and have got an album coming out at the end of June.
They’ve got a new song too, called “I got an F” — and I love it. It’s about failing in a social situation. So many times you are out with someone and you’re thinking, ‘This is a test. If I get all the answers right, if I do all the right things, I’ll pass and everything will be good. We’ll all be happy.’ But a lot of times it just feels like you were studying the wrong textbook and you just guessed for every answer, and inevitably, you got an F.
This song is for those kids in social summer school.”
– Justin Barney, 88Nine Radio Milwaukee

RWPH ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
SUNDAY, JUNE 14TH
LOCUST STREET FESTIVAL
This Mother’s Day, keep the party going after brunch. Celebrate the end of Mother’s Day with other MILFs at the Public House.
MILFs Night Out! Night School: Sex Ed for Adults is hosting a conversation with moms (and all parents) on the joys and challenges of sex, sexuality and dating while parenting. Join us for games, 2 for 1 drinks and the opportunity to get to know other awesome parents like you!
If you’re not a parent, you probably know someone who is. Maybe you should invite that mama friend to the MILFs Night Out? Or you could give ’em the best Mother’s Day present by offering to babysit so they can enjoy a night out.
About Night School: Sex Ed For Adults
As we were hanging out at the bar, we got to talking about the lack of real education, understanding, and the misinformation surrounding sexual health. So, we created a sexual education series for adults! A fun, affirming, and open space where people can learn accurate information, talk about personal experiences, and ask candid questions. We are bringing in community advocates, educators, and experts to facilitate conversations on topics such as anatomy & physiology, gender, sexual practices and pleasure, reproductive rights and responsibilities, and life stages. During the initial periods we’re going to review the “basics” and then move on to more specific subjects.
