12 Things Everyone Who’s Moved Away From Milwaukee Has Thought At Least Once
There doesn’t seem to be a good reason to move away from Milwaukee, but sometimes it’s necessary. No matter how far you roam, Milwaukee will always be home, and many of our habits will stick with you. Whether it’s missing the coast, the cheese, or your neighbors, here are twelve thoughts you’ve had if you’ve ever been torn away from Brew City.
1. Let’s go to the lake! Wait…
It’s easy to forget that not everywhere is quite as
great as our lake.
2. People are staying home because of
While you’re inside, Milwaukeeans are out shoveling in our shorts, and we still make it to work on time.
3. I sure do miss all of the other seasons.
It’s easy to take all four seasons for granted. Even though the weather can be a bit extreme, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
4. Where are the parks?
Milwaukee is bursting with green space. With over 150 parks to choose from, you never feel trapped within the concrete of our city.
5. Where are the cheese curds?!
In Milwaukee, we’re totally spoiled with good cheese! No matter the bar or restaurant, you’ll always find cheesy goodness that you apparently can’t elsewhere.
6. I could really go for a real Brandy Old Fashioned.
A Wisconsin Old Fashioned is simply perfect, and other bars don’t know what they’re doing. Brandy over everything.
7. Where's the rest of my Bloody Mary?
Where are the other toppings? The beer chaser? This is
just a drink?
8. It’s Friday! Why aren't you eating fish?
Friday fish frys are a tradition in Milwaukee that the true Milwaukeean will not break, even after they’ve moved. You’ll find us playing polka music while devouring fish, coleslaw, and rye bread or potato pancakes. You can’t stop us.
9. There’s only ice cream?
This simply isn’t the same as frozen custard.
10. I sure wish there was a festival this weekend.
It’s still mind-blowing that other places don’t have a festival for
everything. We celebrate every chance we get!
11. The people here don’t say "hello" back…
It’s easy to forget that not everyone is as friendly and polite as Milwaukeeans.
12. There really is no place like home.
No matter how far we roam, we’ll always miss the uniqueness of Milwaukee. It truly is unlike anywhere else.
