My name is Russ Chicks and I recently opened Gumby’s Pub, a Brewers-themed local bar that celebrates the Brew Crew of the 1980s.

My sister married former Brewers great Jim “Gumby” Gantner and, while he has no financial stake in the establishment, he is our biggest fan.  Jim gave us access to his private collection of photos for our decor, never-seen-before action shots taken privately.  He was on hand for our own “opening day” and recently for our Foursquare Day celebration where he signed baseballs, bobbleheads and special photos.  He also promises to drop by from time to time as we get settled into the Bay View neighborhood.

We’re not going to be your typical sports bar.  We are a neighborhood watering hole with a Brewers theme in general and a tribute to Jim Gantner in particular.  We hope to provide a friendly atmosphere, a great place to have a beer after work or to hang with a few friends on a Saturday afternoon.  We want to be a fun place to catch a Brewers game on TV or to get an after dinner cocktail.

So, drop by and introduce yourself.
