Paczki Day celebrated in Milwaukee on Fat Tuesday

It’s Fat Tuesday and that means a good portion of southeastern Wisconsin will be digging into deep-fried dough and enjoying the taste of a delicious Paczki.

From raspberry, prune and lemon Pazcki to blueberry, apple and even buttercream, Grebe’s Bakery has 8 different options of Paczki today.

Another bakery, Kurt Schulz Deli & Pastry Shoppe, spent Wednesday getting prepared.
