Street crossing in Downtown Milwaukee.

The main drawback of communicating mostly through sarcasm (if, indeed, there is any) is this: on the rare occasion when you are sincere, people don’t believe you. They think you are being a snide jerk, and the more you try to convince them otherwise, the worse it gets.

This happened time and again whenever someone asked me what I thought of Wisconsin (and of Milwaukee and Green Bay and the stretch of highway in between).

I answered them honestly. I loved it.

They stared blankly at me.

“Seriously?” they say, hoping for some haughty reply, a cheeky revelation, a well-placed put-down.

Instead, they got this: “Yes, seriously.”

I loved it all. I loved the people and the food and the atmosphere. At some point, I screamed it to Rand.

“This place is amazing. The people are friendly and there’s lots of great bars and EVERYONE IS A PACKERS FAN. We have to move here, immediately.”

He agreed with most of my sentiments, but wasn’t so keen on the last bit. Even if it did mean he could watch every Green Bay game surrounded by a sea of fellow fans.

Clearly, everyone needs a little more convincing when it comes to Wisconsin’s awesomeness. These pictures from our trip should do the trick.

  1. Getting my ducks in a row. Riverwalk, Milwaukee.

    Note: Running after them while screaming, “DUCKIES!” will not, as I had previously thought, make you look like a total badass.

  2. Milwaukee Public Market sign at dusk. (Is it just me, or does the sign look kind of familiar?)

    Of course, they have the good sense to put their market indoors …

  3. Window display on the Comet Cafe, Milwaukee.

    I concur.

  4. Chalk art in the Historic Third Ward, Milwaukee.

    What is it about fictional-witch homicide that’s so hilarious?

  5. A throne fit for a Rand. Mader’s German Restaurant, Milwaukee.

    Now he knows what it’s like for us short gals.

  6. Old facades, downtown Milwaukee.
  7. Quadracci Pavilion, Milwaukee Art Museum.
  8. Old Pabst Brewery Sign, downtown Milwaukee.
  9. High Life Cruiser, Miller Brewery.
  10. Exit sign for Waldo, Wisconsin(pop. 503)

    “Oh my god. Rand, WE FOUND HIM!”

  11. Sunset, as seen driving back from Green Bay to Milwaukee.
