Badger Bars & Tavern Tales, Fun For Everyone

More Badger Bar Tales

I met Bill Moen, the author of these two humorous and fascinating Wisconsin Bar stories books, at the Valkyrie Brewery in Dallas (Dallas WISCONSIN, that is). For any lover of good humor, these books are great.  If you love humor, beer, and Wisconsin history in all of its often odd realms, then these are a … Continue reading

Champions Sports Bar: Where Memorabilia & Beer Come Together

Champions 12

Champions is a terrific sports bar to visit in Green Bay any time of the year, but it rocks on game day.  The collection of sports memorabilia throughout the place seems endless, and it ain’t just Packers memorabilia, but Badgers, an extensive Favre collection, and other Wisconsin sports team.  Even so, the Packers collection is … Continue reading

John Hawks Pub in Milwaukee

John Hawks Pub 01

Whenever I’ve got to Downtown Milwaukee to meet with my man Carlo at Marcus Theatres, we step downstairs to the John Hawks Brew Pub from some great English fair (or fish fry on the one Friday I was there).  Love this place.  Great food, great view of the river, espeecially if you sit out on … Continue reading

Monk’s Bar & Grill At The Wilderness & Downtown

Monks Bar 01

Wisconsin Dells has a ton of great eateries to choose from, but none with as good of a bacon cheeseburger as Monks.  I ate at both locations when shooting in the Dells.  Even had a few beers at the Wilderness Resort location while watching a wall of sports, since I was staying at the Wilderness … Continue reading

Bombers, Beers, Burgers & A Really Big Chair

Bombers 08

Just happened across these photos again of Bomber’s in Milwaukee last fall, most well know for their Bomber’s Burger that was featured on the Food Wars last summer.  I also wonder if the place might have been named after the Mitchell B-25 Bomber, since General Billy Mitchell was from Milwaukee and his presence is see … Continue reading

The Tipsy Cow In Madison’s Capital Square Is Divine

Tipsy Cow 01

All we can say is, order the cheeseburger lunch special made with, get this, meat, bun, a slab of butter, and Carr Valley 5 Year Cheddar.  That’s all!  If you want onions raw or grilled, they’ll add that too, and the side of pickles is…  Well just end up their and some point in your … Continue reading

The Bodega Brew Pub In La Crosse

Bodega Brew Pub 01

While taking a day trip to La Crosse to check out what was there, we happened upon the Bodega Brew Pub in Historic Downtown.  It’s easy to fall in love with La Crosse the minute you drive through it for its rustic “Industrial Wisconsin” flavor, the edge of the water vibe, and a downtown area … Continue reading

Wisco Hotel Group’s Original Location Is A Charming Place To Stay…

Wisco Holdiay Inn FDL 01

Staying at the Wisco Hotel Group’s original Holdiay Inn location in Fon Du Lac was such a pleasure as it’s a charming hotel with a sense of history to it.  One of our favorite parts about being there was the Holidome (see photos), an indoor pool and gaming area that seems to be the originator … Continue reading

Titletown In Titletown: Where Beer & History Hook Up In Many Ways

Titletown_Brew_01

We can’t say enough about how fantastic Brent and all the magnificent staff at Titletown Brewing Company treated us.  They were like a second home base for us during a shooting schedule in Green Bay.  We did at least four interviews at the restaurant alone and will likely do more next time around as it … Continue reading

Duffy’s Bar In Long Lake, Where Nobody Knows Your Name (But Who Cares, It’s A Fun Place)

Duffy's Jackalope

Duffy’s in Long Lake (near Spooner, we’re told) where you can find a Jackalope on the wall, signage to make you laugh, and a Santa overseeing a coffin (at least at Christmas).  Or as the tag from this Youtube video makes clear,  Another Great Time at Duffy’s…..a place where no one knows your name.  The … Continue reading
