M&M Club celebrates bittersweet 40th anniversary

mmclubMilwaukee celebrated forty years of fantastic memories on Sunday, May 8.

Bob Schmidt, owner of Milwaukee’s beloved M&M Club (1976-2006) hosted a special Mother’s Day reunion at The Irish Pub (124 N. Water St.) to commemorate the ten year mark since the M&M club’s closing.

From noon until late into the evening, guests reconnected with long-lost friends and family.  Milwaukee Pride, Inc. and the Wisconsin LGBT History Project supported the event with commemorative wall panels about the bar’s history, heritage and legacy.

slideshow, featuring M&M Club friends and family, was presented throughout the day.

We’ve added the video to our YouTube channel, for those who were unable to attend, and those who just want to relive their memories of this magical space. Thank you to the event hosts for sharing these wonderful memories with us.

Organizers state that another reunion event may be held next year.
