Many Missourians refer to their state as Misery, often refferring to the unpredictable weather.
1. Schlitz was the beer that made Milwaukee famous for...beer. It's now sold in bottles with something more similar to the original formula sold back in the 70s. Schlitz had since cheapened its formula and lost its cult following. Hopefully it's not too late for a comeback!
2. Known as the "beer that made Milwaukee famous", Schlitz beer was brewed in Milwaukee since 1849. After being one of the most popular beers for many years, Schlitz fell out of favor in the 1980's, but is now making a sort of comeback as a retro, nostalgic brand.
City north of Boston named for Paul Revere. EX: "I'm takin' my buddy to The Squiya in Reveah for his batchella pahty".
1. The colored (orange, yellow and green) metal chairs outside at the Memorial Union Terrace. You can buy replica terrace chairs in the store inside the union in red and white, but not in the colors outside (though students have been known to steal the real ones as college souvenirs to remember happy times drinking and socializing on the terrace). People have gotten "busted" for having them out on porches and balconies where their thievery is on display.
2. For me, the chairs represent the center of the Universe. I have traveled all over the world and have met people who know the chairs. Just this last weekend I introduced my 8 year old to the chairs. We relaxed in them and enjoyed a cool beverage while watching the boats on the lake and listening to reggae.
3. The terrace chairs represent some of my fondest memories at UW. I spent many a day sitting in them, looking out over the lake and pretending to study. The terrace chairs are quintessentially Madison.
4. Sure, the terrace chairs are emblematic of UW-Madison, and perhaps Madison as a whole, but nobody ever assesses their comfort. I find them quite uncomfortable.
