Leon's wasn't the first custard stand, but it was one of the most influential

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 09:02:00 CDT

Leon Schneider wasn't the first to open a custard stand in Milwaukee, but he was one of the most influential. Even today, nearly a quarter century after Schneider's death, his Leon's drive-in on South 27th Street is a draw for locals and Milwaukee visitors alike.

"This Is Us" recap: The Pearsons battle chicken pox, racism and a big new twist

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 02:46:00 CDT

"Still There" was unfortunately the kind of episode that made me wary of watching "This Is Us" in the first place. But even when "This Is Us" is being very "This Is Us"-like, it can still result in a pretty good hour of TV.

Eric Thames is still really popular in Korea

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 19:04:00 CDT

By now we all know the Eric Thames story. If you don't here is the spark notes version: MLB career went down the toilet, Thames goes to Korea for four years and hits the cover off the baseball, finally gets another shot in MLB with the Brewers and delivers by hitting .247/.359/.518 with 31 home runs.

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 18:16:00 CDT

After losing the crown in 2015, Ristorante Bartolotta reclaimed its perch at the top of Milwaukee's Italian food heap last year. And if the 2017 results have anything to say about it, it doesn't look like it's letting go of that title anytime soon.

4 loved foods, 4 hated foods

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 19:12:00 CDT

Studies show that Americans have a common love - and a common hate - of many of the same foods. But, because we are such complicated snowflake-original beings, we don't, of course, all agree that every food on this list either rules or blows.
