Last week's question: Do Milwaukeeans drink more in the winter?

For sure. I find myself in bars every weekend in the winter. In the summer, I am more likely to go for a bike ride or take a walk after work. Maybe I need a gym membership.

Yes, I think we drink (and smoke) more in the wintertime. When the weather gets cold, it seems like the thing to do.

I think Milwaukee is a city full of lushes all year 'round. I live in Chicago now, but my beer-soaked heart is still with you, Milwaukee.
