A Toast to the New Signs


Short window of rain free opportunity, but we are not short on THANKS for Jim Hass of OldDogDesign and his fantastic design! Thanks to all who braved the raindrops to celebrate!

Raise a glass with us as we dedicate our new street signs and thank our gracious graphic designer, Jim Hass. We will be gathering at the sign near 2119 North 66th at 7pm on Wednesday, June 28th. There will be PBR and water on hand to execute our toast. Feel free to BYOB. Stop by to give Jim a pat on the back and gaze lovingly at our wonderful new signs!
The sign project could not have been completed without funding from Metcalfe’s Market, multiple donations from Pabst Park neighbors and the design efforts of Jim Hass of OldDogDesign.  THANK YOU to all!

Tosa’s Night Out Local Celebrations


Once again the PPNA is encouraging each block to host a block meet and greet.  Block captains or anyone else with the planning “bug”, could throw together a simple gathering on the block on either July 29th or 30th.  For example, you could invite your block to all convene on 7-30 at 7:30pm for lemonade, root beer floats or an ice cream social.  If you would like help spreading the word about your block’s gathering or want to know who your block captain is,  please email  Who doesn’t love a little friendly competition?  Let’s see who can host the best block gathering in Pabst Park!  
From the TNO website:  This year we are bringing the focus back to your neighborhoods and fighting crime on a block by block level. The Wauwatosa Police Department is encouraging as many neighborhoods as possible to have their annual block parties during the weekend of July 29th and 30th.  Our Police Department will be out in full force to attend every block party in the city that weekend!! Plan ahead and get your block party on our list. We’ll bring the squads and motorcycles. This is your chance to have one on one conversations with the officers that work your neighborhood every day.
On Monday, July 31st, the Police Department, in coordination with our many neighborhood associations will host “regional block parties” throughout the City. There will be four parties throughout the city that night. Get your neighborhood association together and join your neighbors. Our officers will be out and you can meet the officers that patrol your neighborhoods every day. We’ll be there with McGruff, squads, motorcycles, and bicycles. Stop by to say hello to our officers or ask about crime prevention in your neighborhood. Stay tuned for the exact times and locations.
