“this is wisconsin, and we drink here”

This was the headline of yesterday’s Wausau Daily Herald, which I noticed on a rest stop back to Madison from Manitowish Waters.

The article resulted in nothing more than the annual self-loathing we go through in Wisconsin – in between drinks.

I guess what really strikes me about the headline is not that people in Wisconsin drink… it’s that while in most states, drinking is a component of a social activity, it IS the social activity in Wisconsin. I’ve just never really understood that.

The act of drinking always seemed so functional to me: If you’re thirsty, drink some water.

You’d think given the relationship between bars and music, we’d have more great local music to go with all that drinking. (To be clear, we do have some, but not nearly enough.)
