I just thought it would be fun to talk about things related to WI.

Like Pizza Burgers, weren't they created somewhere in WI?
Wasn't the Sundae created in Two Rivers?

What's your favorite Leinie's flavor? I can't spell that to save my life.

Anybody else still a fan of Friday night cod?

Remember the terms davenport and pot luck? Those seem like they're exclusive to Wisconsin.

This is just fun. If anyone can help me figure that Pizza Burger location out I'd appreciate. I believe the box has a guy with a long nose?

I'm so new to Wisconsin (just two years now), that I'm not totally up on Wisconsin culture.

Are cheese curds unique to Wisconsin? I'd never heard of them before I moved here, and I'm wondering if Wisconsin invented them?

Didn't the Republican party start in Wisconsin? That's a pretty big deal no matter what side you are on.

Cheese curds are definitely unique to Wisconsin and I've never seen pizza burgers anywhere besides here either

Seymour, Wisconsin claims to be the "Home of the Hamburger"

I remember using the phrase "a horse a piece" when I lived out in Colorado and nobody had any idea what the hell I was talking about

Wisconsin pizza is pretty unique, it's thinner than NY style and really crispy almost like a saltine cracker

I believe the republican party started in Ripon, WI.

I love a good Friday night fish fry. Many places have them during lent, but I think only Wisconsin has them year round. Are supper clubs a Wisconsin thing?

Yep, I believe Abraham Lincoln attended Ripon College as well.

Wisconsin: laid back however it seems like each area or city has it's own vibe.

Lincoln was the first Republican president, actually the history of the party and how it has evolved and changed is very interesting.

Two Rivers battles with Ithica, NY over the sundae business. Evanston, Illinois claims they were first with the spelling "ae" instead of "ay" but don't lay claim to the desert. Washington House Museum has a replica ice cream parlor, serving Cedar Crest, made in Manitowoc on 10th St., big cow outside the factory and across the street from Late's, a great little diner.
