Meet Vanillia Ice At Milwaukee Bucks ’90s Night

The Bucks Hardwood Classic unis have been a huge hit. The throwbacks have been accompanied by ‘90s music in-arena, retro graphics and other in-game elements. To cap it all off we are happy to present ‘90s Night on Saturday, March 30th against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

All fans in attendance will receive a throwback-themed Bucks team player poster, courtesy of Kohl's.

Game Winning Photo Creates Memorable Moment For Bucks Fan

Thrilling buzzer beaters have been one of the most memorable moments of the 2012-13 Milwaukee Bucks campaign. Monta Ellis created another one of those moments with his game winning shot in Houston on February 27th, 2013.

The following morning I discovered a fabulous photo taken by Bill Baptist for NBA Entertainment and Getty Images. The photograph captures Monta Ellis running off the court pointing towards the locker room and the dejected look of the Houtson Rockets faithful. Upon closer inspection, something in the crowd started to stick out. An exuberant Bucks reveling in the victory made the photo a treat.

Milwaukee Bucks v Houston Rockets

Bucks fans show their support all over the nation while we are on the road, but I had to find out who this young fan in Houston was. So I did what any Social Media Manager would do, and turned to Twitter to find out. The answer came less than 14 minutes later.

So we discovered our exuberant Bucks fan thanks to the power of Twitter. After a few e-mails with a co-worker of his, I decided a wallpaper wasn’t enough and put together a gift package for him. A few days later Zach received his package with a personalized copy of the photo autographed by Monta Ellis.

It was a nice way to cap off our Texas Two-Step road trip and provide an unforgettable moment for a Bucks fan.

March Palermo’s Courtside Club Specials

The streets outside of 4th & State may be snow covered, but the first Palermo’s Courtside Club special for March will take your mind off the weather and put you in a warmer place. A half pound of delicious coconut shrimp paired with a side of homemade pineapple ginger coulis will start to your gamenight right. The pairing was was a hit last week when the Backcourt Office tried a sample and you can enjoy it with a side of french fries through March 16th for $12.

Coconut Shrimp

Coconut Shrimp Basket available on Tues, March 12th & Fri, March 15h.

The second half special for March is an update on an old Courtside Club favorite with the addition of Chipotle BBQ Chicken Nachos to the menu. Nachos are the perfect sporting event food and this new take on the old BBQ nachos will be well received. Starting with a base of El Ray tortilla chips, adding pulled chicken cooked in a chipotle BBQ sauce, topped with Monterey Jack cheese sauce, scallions, sour cream, diced tomatoes and homemade guacamole I will be sure to order one of these as I watch the Bucks take down the Lakers. The Chipotle BBQ Chicken Nachos are available in the Palermo’s Courtside Club from March 17th-30th for $10.

Chipotle BBQ Chicken Nachos

BBQ Nachos return for the second half of March.

Sunday afternoon basketball makes a return to Milwaukee this month and that gives BMO Harris Bradley Center Executive Chef David Zakrozymski the ability to transform the popular Chef’s Table with a brunch themed service. For both Sunday afternoon games (March 17th & 24th) brunch will be served with all the fixings. Chef prepared omelets, pan roasted salmon, Jake’s corned beef hash headline the robust offerings. See the full menu available HERE and at $25 per person, the Brunch Chef’s Table includes your choice of fresh brewed coffee, orange juice or a mimosa (my choice drink for brunch).

Brunch & Bloody Mary

Bloody Mary’s and Brunch will be served on Sunday’s in March.

You can’t have a brunch in Wisconsin without a proper Bloody Mary so in addition to the chef’s table we are also offering a Classic Kettle One Bloody Mary for your consumption. The mixologists at Levy Restaurants took a classic mix and added lime juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, celery salt, coarse black pepper, roasted garlic and horseradish resulting in a delightful concoction. Garnished with a lemon, lime, olives, cheese stick and beef stick this Bloody Mary will be available on March 17th and 24th for $9.

Enjoy & Go Bucks Go!
