Team building Ideas for Corporate Groups
Are you looking for something unique and fun for your next team building event? Look no further than Milwaukee's East side where you can find several venues that offer a great package and something for everyone. Starting at AXE MKE, where can you learn how to throw an axe and earn points for coming the closest on the bulls-eye. Next your group can get your creative juices flowing at a new paint studio that will be opening soon called Splash Studio. After you try your hand at painting then your group can go 'underground' to build your own golf hole using props from the prop room and then your team can play 18 holes of miniature golf while enjoying cocktails and food. It's a great way to bond over axes, painting or golfing!

Corporate Event Fun Comes in a Trio
I'm talking about Milwaukee's newest tri-level entertainment destination called Trio. It's located on the Historic Old World Third Street and it features three unique floors of event space. The main floor vibe includes a bar/smaller private area for dining and a stage for either a DJ or Karaoke night for your group. The second floor is the game floor, everything from ping pong tournaments set up and run by their own pro, a large jenga game and other game possibilities. The top floor is called The View for a reason. The view has lots of windows overlooking Fiserv Forum/entertainment district and a great view of downtown Milwaukee and the river. It has an outdoor patio that is spectacular! You can visit their web page at: www.trio1023.com
