Past Words of the Day

Red and green chile sauce together with the same dish.

A nickname for Portland given by none other than George Bush and his staff. Every time he would visit there would be such protests and demonstrations that he did not return to Portland when seeking reelection in 2004; but sent other staff members to gain support.

A nickname for Manitowoc for its location on Lake Michigan. I'm not sure why they it's capital with an '-ol' at the end--because I'm pretty sure Manitowoc isn't a building--but that's how it's spelled on the city's marketing literature, including the sign when coming into town.

1. Bratfest is held every year on Memorial Day Weekend Friday - Monday on Willow Island at the Alliant Energy Center. It moved to Willow Island a few years ago after being held in the Sentry Foods parking lot when it first began. In 2008 the fest set a world record for the most brats consumed in a weekend. Each year they try to break their own world record by selling more and more brats. In addition to Brats, Bratfest also offers hotdogs and Boca Brats (vegetarian) for very reasonable prices. Free live entertainment is available on two stages as well as carnival rides and sweet treats. Rutabega also offers kayaking for kids. Admission is free, parking is free, and a large portion of profits go to dozens of Madison area charities. Check it out!

2. Johnsonville sponsors the annual "World's Largest Brat Fest". It is usually held Memorial Day weekend on Willow Island at the Alliant Energy Center. Parking, admission, and music are all free. Carnival rides and games are available. The rides cost $2-$4 each. Brats and hot dogs are relatively inexpensive ($1.50 in 2008). A large portion of the proceeds go to local charities.

While outsiders might assume you can borrow money from your buddy and he will lend it to you, in Wisconsin we borrow everything. i.e. "Can you borrow me ten bucks?" "No, sorry. I can't borrow it to you 'cuz then I won't have enough left for the brat fry."
