’Tis Dining Month, the tastiest time of year! This means we’re dishing up fun and fascinating food content throughout October. Dig in, Milwaukee! OnMilwaukee Dining Month is served up by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino and Wollersheim Winery & Distillery.

Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are all coming up – but the only holiday that truly matters on the calendar is National Cheese Curd Day on Oct. 15. And to make that glorious festive day even better, Culver's today announced that its mythical Curderburger will return – and not just for one day this time. 

Indeed, as first reported by Rob Thomas at the Cap Times, the curderburger – a classic Culver's burger, complete with a giant hockey puck of deep-fried cheese curd – will return to the fast food favorite's menu on Oct. 12, just in time for National Cheese Curd Day that weekend. The infamous cheese-crazed burger will then stay on the menu through the end of the month. (Or whenever we buy the fast food chain out of their delicious cheesy disks, which will almost certainly be sooner than later.) The curd-rific burgers are expected to cost around $7.59. 

For those who don't remember the legend of the Curderburger, here's the squeaky saga: Last year, as an April Fool's joke, Culver's photoshopped a "curderburger" made entirely of a giant meteor-like breaded cheese curd in between a bun. It looked ridiculous ... and totally delicious, so much so that the people clamored for the dairy-heavy dish to become a reality. And so, on National Cheese Curd Day last year, it did – not in its absurd April Fool's Day form, but as a legitimate burger complete with a giant breaded cheese curd disk on top like the massive evil spaceship from "Independence Day" but if it was totally delicious. And it was very much totally delicious

And now it's very much coming back – and this time, not for just one all-too-quick day. 

For more updates, stay tuned to OnMilwaukee – and to whet your appetite while we're waiting for the Curderburgers to cook up, here's our Facebook Live review of the beautiful burger from last year.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
