Looking for something a little different for your next event or wedding? Consider a fruit and cheese hors d’oeuvres table. It’s great for snacking while guests arrive and takes the edge off things before the dinner is served. CJ’s Catering of Wausau recently prepared this lovely arrangement for Alyssa and Jake’s recent wedding in Irma. Alyssa wanted a fruit and cheese hors table. The guests fully enjoyed it this afternoon. CJ’s Catering in Wausau. . .

Closing Thoughts

Bike Sharing, popular in larger cities like Madison, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Chicago is now coming to Milwaukee. Called Bublr, this system of bikes and racks let you rent a bike from a neighborhood rack, go about your business and return it at the same or different rack. Could something like this work in Wausau? Read more about bike sharing and how it’s revolutionizing alternative transportation methods.
