Meet Jessie: A Guide with a Ghost Story

Meet Jessie, a Milwaukee Food & City Tours guide for the past 3 years. An East Sider, who has lived on Brady Street for many years, she loves to share her neighborhood’s pedestrian-friendly streets with locals and tourists alike. One of her favorite stops on our Brady Street tour is Cempazuchi's where she greets the staff by name when ordering their traditional Mexican street food. The house made chips and peanut salsa are muy buenos! Taste for yourself and learn the story of the restaurant’s name when you and your friends join us for a Brady Street Food Tour…  purchase your advance tickets today! When Jessie isn't leading tours on Brady Street, or reading a book in one of its many cafes, she shares her passion for the performing arts by working for Milwaukee Chamber Theatre (MCT) at The Broadway Theatre Center. For those of you who have taken our Historic Third Ward dinner tour, you probably already know the story of Clair Richardson and his many hauntings within that building. Clair is one of the most well-known ghosts of Milwaukee's past.  We'll be sharing his tale, and the tales of many more, on our Ghouls & Spirits Adult Trick or Treat Bus tour in October.  This 3-hour bus tour features a haunted city tour with ghost stories throughout the Third Ward, along Brady Street, down Wisconsin Avenue in the Concordia neighborhood, and even through a historic cemetery. Enjoy three food/drink stops along the way - appetizers and wine while exploring a historic hotel, an entree while sipping your choice of pumpkin punch or seasonal craft beer, plus dessert and more at our final resting stop of the evening!
