Milwaukee IHOP to Settle in Patrons' Discrimination Suit: An International House of Pancakes restaurant and a group of black patrons who asserted that they were refused service have agreed to settle a lawsuit for $185,000. The patrons were locked out of a Milwaukee IHOP several times last Dec. 28, the lawsuit said. The restaurant has promised to ensure that employees are instructed to treat all customers "fairly and equally without regard to race," IHOP's attorney said.

The owners of a Sizzler restaurant linked to a fatal E. coli outbreak shut down their second Sizzler in Wisconsin after two people who ate there became infected with the bacteria. Eschenbach & Boysa Management Co. voluntarily closed the Sizzler in the suburb of Wauwatosa, Wis., late Wednesday, the only other Sizzler in the state. The company last week closed its Milwaukee Sizzler, which is believed to be the source of the outbreak that has left 49 people ill, including 26 children.

The Brewers' fast start this season has put the spotlight on Milwaukee, a city known primarily for its beer and its . . . well, . . . its beer. An anonymous scribe, writing for a souvenir program to note the opening of the Pfister Hotel in 1897 observed, "If one were called upon suddenly to say what claim to distinction Milwaukee possesses, he might be at a loss to give an answer."
