Are you going to hibernate or something?
Come spend a winter in these parts. You'll get what I mean, ha ha! ;)

Your outdoor time is basically spent running from car to office and then from office to car - throw in having to clear snow every couple days. Seems like not much daylight - go to work in the dark - come home in the dark. I love summer so much - the kids and I are outside all of the time - just tough when it gets truly crummy outside. The more indoor space you can carve out - the better it is.

Ha, ha! Awesome! Brew City Brand does some great designs! Sadly, I think we'll never live down the whole cannibal killer thing. If it was just 1, maybe...but 2...

Slightly funny story. My cousin and I went and saw Rollins Band do their Black Flag/West Memphis Three benefit show and we got tossed at the beginning of Henry's set for daring to jump up and down. We're out on the street - not the best part of Milwaukee - but not the worst...but also happened to have been Dahmer's neighborhood. There is a big old art deco hotel called the Ambassador that has since been remodeled and is now a really cool place - but back in 2003 - bit of a scary place. We head over there for a beer and end up crossing the street with Keith Morris (of Black Flag/Circle Jerks fame). He had sung the first set - covering his tenure with BF. He was friendly enough, but in a hurry to get on his way - where he was going, man, I have no idea - like I said - sketchy part of town. Anyway, we end up at Ambassador and start putting away some drinks and my cousin starts badgering the bartender - trying to get him to admit that Dahmer killed people in the hotel and the bartender keeps denying it. My cousin was like, "dude, I remember the court testimony...he said he brought out bodies in his suitcase!" Anyway, I digress. Milwaukee really is a great town!

Heh. Luckily, postmodern life doesn't distinguish between fame and infamy.
Walrus birth doesn't make good breakfast conversation!

Sadly, everything was filmed out in Los Angeles. The show set in Milwaukee - but that is the only connection. One of the show's creators was born and raised in Milwaukee and the iconic Arnold's Drive-In was loosely based on several Milwaukee frozen custard stands (they're all long gone). We do have a bronze statue of the Fonz downtown: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bronze_Fonz.

Laverne & Shirley was also set in Milwaukee, as was That 70's Show in more recent times. I think they like to use Milwaukee because it is kind of the "base model" upper midwest American town: not too big, but not too small.

So even the outside scenes weren’t in Milwaukee, that’s sad but saved me a trip 😊

Every time I see a show filmed in the Hollywood Hills I marvel at how much it looks like the Korea of MASH.
