Earlier this week, a discussion popped up on Reddit around the question, "What are your unpopular opinions of Milwaukee?" The thread contains more than 145 comments (and growing) with responses that include a disdain for the cracker-thin crust in pizza joints like Zaffiro’s and Lisa’s, the judgmental-ness of Bay View-ers and "Old Fashioneds taste like garbage."
This got me thinking about my own unpopular opinions of Brew City. It took me a little while to conjure 'em, but I wish more bars and restaurants didn’t have TVs; I love Usinger’s braunschweiger and liver sausage; and I think Milwaukee Public Schools are successful and integral to a healthy city.
Now, what are your unpopular opinions of Milwaukee? And please don’t say that your unpopular opinion is being a fan of OnMilwaukee. We’re sensitive folks.
