Are you old-school Milwaukee?

12 signs you're old-school Milwaukee


If you still know the words to the Pabst jingle, this list is for you. Read on, old timers, and remember: this is still a great place on a great lake.

1. You want to have a drink at Frenchy's.

2. You say County Stadium, First Wisconsin Building and MECCA and no one knows what you're talking about.

3. You saw Samson beat on the glass at the zoo.

4. You still bring your ice skates to Mayfair - although your memory may be as foggy as this photo.

5. Albert the Alleycat is your favorite newscaster.

6. At baseball games, you thought the national anthem referred to your town and team ("Home of the Braves...").

7. You're still hooked on Oriental Drugs, even if it's been a while since your last fix.

8. You miss that sweet, yeasty smell that means home.

9. You remember the Love Rock (now immortalized as all good Milwaukee landmarks should be: as beer).

10. You miss getting your news from the Green Sheet.

11. You hear Ernie von Schledorn's voice every time you see a Volkswagen.

12. Ryan Braun? ROBIN YOUNT.
