RTT: All about the Frozen North


This is not just any Random Tuesday Thoughts post, you're catching me fresh off my first trip to Wisconsin. I don't have much to say this week, but I'm giving you my three favorite things about a certain state. I'm even providing you links. Aren't I helpful?


Lucille's- I experienced this as part of a Bachelorette party extravaganza. There was no cover charge the night we were there, but I believe people usually fork over some cash for the privilege of singing loudly along to at least two pianos and if they're really lucky (say if its your birthday. Or if you're a bachelorette!) to be personally serenaded and insulted by at least one of the entertainers. It was utterly fantastic. Even if I did learn some new songs I will not be singing to the girls at bedtime.


Comedy Sportz- I've seen improv comedy before. I was a fan of "Who's Line is it Anyway?", enjoyed it a lot at college, have been to Second City in Chicago and even played improv games back in my high school drama club days. I'm sure I've laughed as hard in the past. But its hard to remember. I laughed so hard I almost threw up and then wheezed whenever I tried to breathe deep the rest of the night. These guys were great. I am super impressed that they almost successfully acted out the word "necrotizing", and just imagining one of the performers, Alex, in a trench coat almost has me on the floor busting my insides instead of sitting here in my computer chair in a lady-like fashion.


Cheese Curds! Made of awesome! Those Wisconsin-ites who told me (a girl madly in love with all things dairy) that I would adore them were not wrong. They're oddly-shaped salty cheesy hunks of deliciousness, super fresh tasting, and, when slightly warmed up, they squeak. What's not to love about them? Well, maybe their nutritional content. I was going to buy a bag at the airport to bring home with me, and made the mistake of reading the back of the package. I'm going to need a little amnesia before I can eat them again, but they were amazing.


So, I love Wisconsin, but you'll love reading the rest of this week's RTT posts. Head on over to Keely's site, The Un Mom, for more!

A dueling piano bar? Those are awesome! They have one in Fort Lauderdale called "Howl At The Moon" which draws the crowd in all the time.
