User Rating:  / 1

MTV's hit dance competition, "America's Best Dance Crew (ABDC)," has become a phenomenon for wannabe dancers in much the same way "American Idol" has lifted the hopes of vocalists around the country.

Capitalizing on ABDC's popularity, local nightclub "Wherehouse" (818 S. Water St.) will host "Milwaukee Meltdown: Dance Crew Competition," a four-week contest showcasing some of the Midwest's best dance teams.

Starting this week, competitions will be held each Thursday night at the club until a winning team is announced at the July 28 finale.

The final round of competition will feature performances by Enigma Dance Kru from Season One of ABDC and Milwaukee native and world traveler, rapper Juiceboxxx.

"Milwaukee Meltdown" begins at 10 p.m. and is hosted by local break dancing specialist "Mijo" of Motion Disorderz Dance Crew - the winner of the 2010 BC1 Red Bull Cypher One Break Dancing Championship. Cover is $7.

  • If you've been to a street festival or outdoor summer concert in Milwaukee, you've probably heard Doug Gutenkunst's signature "yee-haw."  Usually that high-pitched howl comes right after a few bangs on an old timey instrument -- the triangle -- hanging from the rafters of his tent. If you're not sure who or what I'm talking about, check out the video below from his website.   So, how did Doug end up here?  Why did he leave the insurance business to pursue the kettle corn career path?

  • Wonder what grocery stores do with unused and expired produce? How about food scraps our restaurants end up with? Compost Crusaders to the rescue! Business owner Melissa Tashjian hauls 60,000 pounds of organic materials each month from business, office and residential buildings.   "We take all our material to the farms composting in Caledonia," says Melissa, owner of the female run business. "They are experts in processing it, recycling it and turning it into a finished product called compost."   She started small, by helping community gardens compost their organic waste and soon realized many businesses around Milwaukee wanted to compost, but didn't have the resources. Thanks to the expertise from her boyfriend and master diesel mechanic Matt, Melissa now has a garbage truck and 27 clients, making pick-ups a few times a week from local restaurants and grocery stores.   "The businesses that are doing this sought us out," Melissa explains. "They are really the inspiration for making this come together." Melissa says that businesses are pleasantly surprised how cost effective it is to compost. Compost Crusaders provide the recycling bins to customers too.   Click the story above to hear more about Compost Crusaders. play pause stop mute unmute previous next CompostCrusader.mp3

  • Ever wonder what happens to the stuff that can be salvaged from a house before it's demolished? From antique fixtures to stained glass windows and kitchen sets, WasteCap Resource Solutions saves these architectural gems, keeping them from going into a landfill.    WasteCap is a nonprofit, working with clients to recycle and reuse as much as possible from home demolitions and construction projects. They've just opened a new warehouse at 22nd and Michigan; open to the public, where they are reselling materials that would normally get put into a landfill. Reducing waste isn't the only goal of WasteCap. Job creation is also part of WasteCap's mission, putting under employed and under skilled people to work thanks to a partnerhship with the Community Service Corps and Northcott Neighborhood House. These programs provide job training programs and pay new workers, so they can learn valuable skills, allowing them to go after other jobs in construction, demolition and waste recycling fields.  Are you an artist looking for some unique pieces, old wooden doors or floorboards? WasteCap has those, too. Click the story above to hear more from my tour of the new warehouse.  play pause stop mute unmute previous next WasteCapResourceSolutions.mp3
