There's more to Green Bay sports than just football. We have D-1 basketball with the UWGB Phoenix. We have to do something in the winter!
The new coach, Todd Kowalczyk, was an assistant with Tom Crean from Marquette and is now building his own championship team at UWGB.
Great Sandwiches Near Lambeau!
Don't let the sign deceive you. This place has the best sandwiches in town. You can enjoy the cheesecake too, but I never seem to have the room after one of their delicious sandwiches. Do not miss lunch at this deli when you are in town. They have many great sandwiches to choose from. My personal favorite is "The Wall Street". Roast Beef, fresh bread, horseradish and marinated onions are just a few of the ingredients on this wonderful concoction.
They also have soups and omelets! Yes they can serve wine or beer with your meal as well!

"Green Bay: Land of the Packers...and Cheese."
Green Bay's main claim to fame, of course, is football. People live, eat, breathe, and bathe in football. Entire restaurants are themed after the game. Most of the street names pertain to some aspect of football. The crowning glory to the entire town is therefore Lambeau Stadium, which was recently renovated. Other than football, Green Bay is located in Wisconsin, so of course the cheese is excellent. I naturally have a bias towards Wisconsin cheese as opposed to that California stuff, and I encourage everyone to try at least a bit of our cheese. It's totally worth it.
"The last town before you reach nowhere"
Green Bay is also one of (if not the) largest towns in northern Wisconsin. People come from all over to make the best of the shopping opportunities Green Bay presents. Once you head north from Green Bay, the world turns into large tracts of forest and farmland that are perfect for various recreational activities.
Green Bay is essentially a huge blend of suburbia, forest, and football. It's caught somewhere between happenin' and sleepy, between high-strung (i.e., Packer Sundays) and laid-back (i.e. every other day). Some would say that Green Bay has an identity crisis, but I rather think this crazy mix gives this Midwestern town its charm.
Teledude's new Green Bay page
Yes I'm a cheesehead through and through. I grew up for the most part in Wisconsin and it's hard not to love The Packers. I still do and always will no matter where I am. I lived for four years right across the river from Green Bay in DePere Wisconsin where I went to a small little college. Green Bay is a small friendly place where everyone feels like neighbors. When living in Green Bay, there are really only a couple of things to do. Number one, of course, is root for the Packers-the best and classiest of all NFL teams. The team to this day is owned by the city and has been since they first started in 1919. It is the ONLY team in the NFL that isn't owned by any rich businessman who only cares about the bottom line which is $. In Green Bay, football rules. Other things to do are ice fish on Lake Michigan or any of the thousands of lakes in the area. Hunt all over, drink beer, eat cheese, and then drink more beer. It's not the healthiest of places to live in but it is kind and tasty and fun if you can stay warm throughout the long cold winters. They don't call Lambeau Field the "Frozen Tundra" for nothing you know.
