Cheesy Times in Milwaukee

I like Milwaukee. It might be too cold for me to live any farther north than I do now though...

One of the bigwigs brought back some cheese curds from a road trip. They were nice and salty. I guess the way you tell if curds are fresh is that they kind of squeak against your teeth while you chew them. It was kind of a strange sensation.

When I heard Kopp's was like a local, better version of Culver's I signed up.

Kopp's Wikipedia entry features this gem:

In June 2010, Vice President Joe Biden visited a Kopp’s Frozen Custard location while campaigning for Democratic Senator Russ Feingold. Biden asked the manager of Kopp’s what he owed for his custard. In response, the manager stated "Don’t worry, it’s on the house. Lower our taxes and we’ll call it even." In response, Biden came back later to the manager and said, "Why don’t you say something nice instead of being a smartass all the time?" The story was covered by both local and national news agencies.

I hadn't had any dairy products in about 20 minutes so this sundae came just at the nick of time.

Unbeknownst to me my cousin Caleb goes to school in Milwaukee. Tell you what, when you have 20+ cousins it's an accomplishment just remembering all of their names. Luckily I still had some time left in the week to meet Caleb for dinner.

There was a cool kid taco place called Vagabond really close to his dorm.

Watching relatives who you knew as kids turn into adults is kind of weird.
