Passing this on . . . It's for one of my Big Media Bosses.
The Bay View Compass is hosting its first annual murder mystery event, Who Killed Tony Zielinski?, Friday, Nov. 16 in the gymnasium of the Marian Center for Non-Profits, 3211 S. Lake Dr., St. Francis, Wisconsin. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased in advance or at the door.

Doors open to public at 5pm. Registration is 5-7pm. Sleuthing begins at 7pm. Soup, sandwiches, coffees, tea, and desserts, provided by Sven’s European Café of Bay View, will be available 5pm until the event closes. Proceeds from the bar benefit the Marian Center. Admission does not include food or bar.

The plot for this interactive mystery event is based on the fictional murder of Milwaukee’s 14th District Alderman Tony Zielinski, who represents Bay View. Zielinski will play himself in the drama.

A number of Bay View area businesses and organizations will be present at the event selling their wares or providing information about their business or organization.

Prizes donated by Bay View business owners include two round-trip Lake Express ferry tickets; a signed, framed Steve Slaske print from South Shore Gallery & Framing; a $25 gift certificate from Dinner by Design for a grab & go freezer entree; organic body products gift bag from Future Green; a $25 gift certificate to Natural Pet; one-year subscription to Bay View Compass; a framed Twilight on the Bay poster; $30 gift certificate to Hector’s on Delaware, two vouchers for free margarita pitchers at Hector’s on Delaware, and two vouchers for free lunches at Hector’s on Delaware.

To purchase tickets, for directions to event, or other information, contact the Bay View Compass at (414) 489-0880 or

Free parking is provided in the lot south of building. Enter Marian Center in back, at southwest corner of the building.

The Bay View Compass, established in November 2004, is an independent monthly newspaper that is distributed from North Avenue on Milwaukee’s East Side south to College Avenue in Cudahy. The Who Killed Tony Zielinski? event is a fundraiser staged by the Bay View Compass to launch and maintain the newspaper’s forthcoming updated website.

Who Killed Tony Zielinski? is a work of fiction and does not imply or condone harming any real persons. Alderman Zielinski has granted permission for use of his name and likeness.
The Bay View Compass website really does need an overhaul (just think, my columns could someday be archived there!), so any support you can give would be greatly appreciated.
