What is Shrink-n-Drink?

Early this year, we were approached by Dr. Julie Helmrich, a clinical psyscologist and professor, about hosting Shrink-n-Drink. Already well established in Milwaukee, the Doc was looking to expand into Waukesha and felt that Key Westconsin would be a perfect host.

After several events, we couldn't agree more. Each time Dr. Julie packs the house, and we provide great service, food, and drinks.

Shrink-n-Drink is a Q&A session (revolving around Dr. Julie's expertise) hosted in a laid back dinner environment. Anyone in the audience can submit a question anonymously, and Dr. Julie answers them armed with a microphone, her knowledge, and most importantly, a sense of humor.
 She speaks for about an hour, often interacting with the audience. Serious questions will get a serious answer (after a little teasing), but Dr. Julie doesn't hold anything back for questions that are obviously a joke. Many of the topics discussed aren't appropriate for kids.

Our usual date for hosting is the first Tuesday of the month; however, giving the upcoming holiday July's date has been rescheduled to Thursday, July 19. Space is limited, so call us (Tue-Sat 11am-10pm) at 262-446-2346 to make a reservation.

No, Gary hasn't taken up body building. We're talking about these mussels:

The delicious, garlic-and-herb sauteed  kind that are just waiting to be plucked from their shell and popped into your mouth! We offer them as a 12 piece appetizer for only $6.95, but supplies are limited!

Some of you may have heard about our entry in the Mission: Small Business contest .Chase Bank and Living Social are giving away up to 12 grants of $250,000 to small businesses across the nation.

How exactly is a new restaurant in little old Waukesha supposed to catch the attention of the nation? With the help of our wonderful customers! To move on to the next round of consideration, we need your votes.

By going to, you can express your support for Key Westconsin. On the homepage, in the lower right section there is a blue "login and support" button. You then will be asked to login through Facebook (or sometimes this step is skipped if a login is already detected). On the following "vote local" page, you can enter a business name, state, and city. Entering Key Westconsin, Wisconsin, and Waukesha will give you a chance to show your support for us!

Final consideration for the grants is based upon business management and planning, likelihood to succeed, and community impact and engagement. Our customer's voices can say more than we ever can about all of these categories.

We have until June 30 to receive online votes. Each person can only vote for a business once, so if you know anyone else who's had a great experience at Key Westconsin, let them know about this contest! 

Thanks to everyone who's voted!
