Milwaukee is cold, dontcha know?

I’m back from my trip to Milwaukee, dontcha know?! I had a wonderful time! Milwaukee was a great city for us to play in for a couple of days. Here is what I learned while I was there:

  • People in Minnesota like to say “dontcha know?” a lot.
  • Irish pubs are a great place to spot guys with kilts… and guys dressed like women.
  • It’s COLD there.
  • I’m *very* funny in Minnesota. I like to think that the cold weather kept my jokes fresh. (ba-dump-bump-ching!)
  • The Milwaukee Brewers baseball team got their name because of all the breweries located in the city. (yes, this was the first time it occurred to me)
  • The Miller Brewery tour is free and they give you free beer. That is a good thing. Did I mention the free beer? Three mugs of free beer.
  • When told by your friends that you were going to be leaving the above-mentioned brewery, I can chug a mug of beer in just a few seconds. (hey – it was free & I wasn’t the only one who did this)
  • When a clown invites you to a street festival and tells you it’s going to be great, don’t believe him. Clowns lie.
  • Cab drivers are very competitive. (ours won)
  • Irish pub waitresses are very sassy & aren’t afraid to put a group of slightly-drunk and feisty women in their place.
  • Have kleenex available.
  • You can never have enough wine.
  • If you laugh loud and frequently, people will stare.
  • People are surprised when they discover we’re in the HR profession.

Most importantly – I can meet with these women after not seeing them for months and months and it seems like no time has passed at all.
