The Riverwest Public House is proud to announce its sponsorship of the first-ever Milwaukee Group Hug. May 26 at 6pm, come show your Milwaukee love at the Public House. Are you a photographer? Submit your shots to win great Milwaukee prizes!Picture

We are asking you and your friends to scour Milwaukee for your favorite people, places, and objects—ones that define Milwaukee and/or help to explain why you love it—and HUG these subjects for the camera. Get a friend to snap a photograph of you with your arms wrapped around your favorite building, business, monument, person, etc. We want everyone to submit these photos to participate in the contest. The winners will be rewarded with some awesome gifts that will let them enjoy and celebrate Milwaukee. Then we will celebrate on May 26th 2012, all participants and friends are invited to attend a GROUPHUG party in their respective cities to view pics, imbibe, listen to music and express your love for your city!

Rust Belt Group Hug is a concept inspired by Matthew Mourning of St. Louis, MO who hosted the very first Group Hug event in his hometown in June of 2011. That event drew nearly 300 passionate St. Louis residents together to celebrate the people and places they love most in their city.

Saving Cities thought this was too cool to pass up, so they set out on creating a mega regional Group Hug: Rust Belt that will occur on the same date and time, in 5 major Rust Belt cities: Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Milwaukee, and – of course – St. Louis. This event will mark the first ever mega-regional grassroots collaboration of this kind!
