A great WI BBQ includes beer brats, beer,potatoe salad, jello, and corn on the cob. If you want to be fancy you can make a jello salad!
That is what we call staple summer food
Quite different than Texan BBQ~

Milwaukeeans have an accent all their own. Its a sort of lazy drawl. The mixture of Polish, German, Itallian, and Scandanavian cultures has made a unique blend in this city. They ask for hot dogs with the 'works'...meaning all the fixings. They call a drinking fountain a bubbler. They are famous for their Friday night fish fries served with rye bread and cole slaw and for hot ham and rolls on Sundays.
If you don't know the food of Milwaukee, you have to try kurds... chunks of mild cheese fresh from a cheese factory....they squeek when you bite into them...and they are delicious!

What other states consider the beginning of the autumn season here it is the beginning of Packer Season.Football is serious business here-win or lose Wisconsinites are loyal "Packer Backers" The Enthusiasm and loyalty here for the sports team is hard to match. I have been to sporting events in various states, but nothing compares to Wisconsin. The energy the crowd has in really impressive. It is next to impossible to get a ticket to see a game at Lambeau field. Lambeau Field has been sold out on a season-ticket basis for 45 years. The current waiting list to get tickets is 67,542. People who have recently received season tickets have been on the waiting list 25-30 years. Like I said Football is serious here. "Go Pack Go!" Win or lose-it's all about how you play the game in Wisconsin.

Another Food item that is hard for me to find outside of the state- Custard. This is the best!
Kopps Frozen Custard in Milwaukee/Brookfield area has really good Custard.
Here in Texas it is hard to come by and I never did find it when I was in the Southwest.
Located on W. Bluemound Rd. in Brookfield and a few other places around Milwaukee

Not really a local custom, but if you are in Wisconsin try some Cheese Curds. They squeek when you chew them. These are great and don't seem to be available anywhere else?? I have my relatives ship these to me out of state.
Cheese Curd is the fresh cheese off the top of the vat. Before the cheese is pressed into the cheese molds, the whey is drained and the curd is collected from the top. You can choose from white chedder,yellow chedder and flavored. I always go for the plain white or yellow chedder. Found in any WI grocery store.

Oddly enough one of the fun past times I miss the most. Friday Night Fish is very popular here-especially true in the smaller towns. Go Early!! It is not uncommon for a 2 hour wait, but hey there is always alcohol to fill in the wait time and the Fish is awesome. Often the "hole in the wall" places have the best fish fry.

I guess another WI thing? A bubbler is a public place you can get a drink of water from.
A water fountain, around here, is an architectual piece of art found in public places that spews water upward like a fountain.

An ATM machine is often referred to as a Tyme machine. Actually never realized that no one else in the country knew what a Tyme machine was, rather hilarious though when you ask someone where a Tyme machine is and they look at you like your an alien.

The 'Cheesehead' foam cheese wedge is worn by many people of Wisconsin while they attend sports events, but especially by followers of the National Football League's Green Bay Packers. The cheesehead is great for any occasion however, and you will sometimes see them on airplane flights, at weddings or virtually anywhere you want to show your pride for Wisconsin.
