Atlas Obscura looks at quirky Milwaukee

I’m a big fan of Atlas Obscura, a website that calls itself "the definitive guide to the world's wondrous and curious places." And it does a good job.

Yesterday, it took a look at Milwaukee and its 12 quirky treasures.

Of course, it began with the requisite beer and bowling talk ("Wisconsin's largest city is brewing a lot more than beer"), but then got pretty detailed.

I especially like its recognition of the Kingdom of Talossa and the Stemper Co. nod. I haven’t even heard of their number 7 except for Bobby's article, the Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear.

The Bronze Fonz and Safe House mentions were a little obvious, but overall, I think this is a good list. You?

Here are couple more of my favorites (includes some a bit outside city limits) to get you thinking:

I'm telling you: the authorities should be looking for the escaped prison guys at this barn in Oostburg.
