Downtown 2nd Sat.



Summer 2017 - watch for cruse nights gatherings.

On 2nd Saturday of the month the downtown area host their "Second Saturday" evening with the Twilight Marketplace and free entertainment.  This will take place between 54th Street and 58th Street.  (Weather permitting - I think).   Stroll Sixth Avenue and some shops may stay open a little later that evening.  Start at the Metra Station (Choo Choo Charlies - grandkids love it).

Some of shops on Sixth Avenue; Starting at 51st Street and going South:  Villa d'Carlo's, Common Grounds Coffee Shop, Jockey Outlet (6th Av & 55 St), Trolley Dogs, Sandy's Poppers & Ice Cream, FEC's Place (Carolyn Fechner Miller), Rhode Theatre (old Lake Theatre), Cooler by the Lake (east of the Rhode), Wine Knot, The Buzz Coffee Shop, Sazzy B's Bistro & Martini Bar, LuLu Bird Repurpose Items, Dale's Jewelry, Frank's Diner (east of Sixth Avenue), Duck Duck Goose Kids Consiqnment Shop, Live a Little Consignment Shop, Orpheum Theater & Elsie Mae Pies and Such,  Sweet Treat Bakery, Mike's Chicken & Donuts, 58th Street Subway, Public Brewery, Kaiser Pizza & Grill, Slice of New York Pizzeria, SJ Crystals Men's Store (beautiful Men's Clothing Lou), and of course, Bjorn's Men's Fine Clothier is a museum - Kenosha's Fun Museum!  (Great job Mike & Judy & Brett!)

So what this means - there will be no parking directly on Sixth Avenue for the evening.

For ease of parking your best bet is to park in municipal parking lots on 54th & 55th Streets between Sixth and Eighth Avenues.

If you arrive early you may even decide to ride the trolley - cost is a whole 1.00 cents per person.  Not sure what time they finish the rides with the Second Saturday happening.
