Vegan eats and stuff to do in Milwaukee

I'm going to be in Milwaukee tomorrow until I head out on a late afternoon flight. Anywhere easily accessible by public transit from downtown that is recommended for vegan breakfast/lunch/brunch? Art, bookstores, parks, or other things to do in the immediate vicinity would be a big plus, too. Thanks!

Home Inspector/Structural Engineer in Madison/Milwaukee area

I am about to purchase a home. The property is located about halfway between Madison and Milwaukee. There is a long horizontal crack in the basement wall, so I know I want a structural engineer specifically, and I also want a more general home inspector. I have no idea how to go about finding and vetting these individuals. Any recommendations for specific individuals, or instructions on how to find them myself? Thanks!

Going Out to the Ball Game . . . in Milwaukee

So, in a few weeks we are flying from Seattle to Chicago, then driving to Milwaukee, to attend a ball game with friends at the Brewers ball park. We've never been to Milwaukee. It's a short trip -- just for the weekend. Any suggestions from the Hive Mind on where to stay and eat and what to do besides going to our scheduled game?

Milwaukee Brewers 1989 Significance?

I have a baseball hat that was recently given to me by my brother on his trip through Wisconsin. It is a Milwaukee Brewers Cooperstown Franchise hat which has a "1989" stamped on the back. I have no idea the significance of the 1989 year and the Brewers. I have conducted some rough Google searches, but I couldn't find anything definitive. Anyone have any info? Thanks.

We'll always have Milwaukee

The Hubs and I are driving to Milwaukee today to watch the Brewer's game at 1pm. I'm told it will be done by 4:30. After that we want to hang out in Milwaukee a bit and have dinner before driving back to Chicago. Neither of us know all that much about Milwaukee besides where the baseball stadium is. I would like to do something even mildly interesting and/or unique and/or tasty. What would YOU do?

Good places to busk in Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison?

I'll be visiting Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison soon and was hoping to earn a bit of extra cash busking. I play unamplified cello, mostly classical music. I'm not very familiar with any of those cities, so I'm looking for recommendations for places that might be good to play with my case open-- and also places i should definitely avoid, if any. Also note: I'll probably be taking my chances and doing so without a permit, so somewhere with lower probability of being hassled is a plus.
