liveliest food near milwaukee arena?

Every year going to watch/root/tear-out-our-hair- at- bad-basics at the national gymnastics championships, we get stuck eating really boring burgers at whatever TGIF-like spot is nearest the arena. This year, the competition is in Milwaukee, downtown at the sports arena, and we are staying in nearby hotels. "We" are grownups from L.A., Chicago and NYC, without huge wallets but who like vibrant food. What options do we have in walking distance of the arena? Any great Vietnamese shacks, taco trucks, Lebanese cafes? Seemingly boring hotel spots that are actually really good? And what about great bars for drinking vodka with burly ex-Soviet Olympians (we'll supply the ex-Soviets)? Thanks.
