Downtown 2nd Sat.



On 2nd Saturday of the month the downtown area host their "Second Saturday" evening.  This takes 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), Slip 56 or Swede's (both east of the Rhode), Wine Knot, The Buzz Coffee Shop, Sazzy B's Bistro & Martini Bar, LuLu Bird Repurpose Items, 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, 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!)

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 per person.  Not sure what time they finish the rides with the Second Saturday happening.
