Henry "The Fonz" Winkler is in Milwaukee today for tomorrow night's Wisconsin State Fair "Happy Days: Live" main stage show. So what does The Fonz do to kill some time in the city that helped make him famous? We'll give you one guess ...

Obviously (even if you hadn't read the headline or looked at the lead photo).
Wednesday night's main stage celebration will feature not only Winkler, but also fellow Jefferson High alums Anson "Potsie" Williams and Donny "Ralph" Most live on stage, presenting music, rare photos, clips, never before seen videos, conversation and a Q&A session with the crowd.
The special touring engagement was originally in tribute to the classic sitcom's 40th anniversary, but due to the recent death of "Happy Days" creator Garry Marshall, it's hard to imagine the event tomorrow night not taking on some extra significance and bringing out some extra emotions.
We don't know where else Winkler's heading around town, but we do know he and the rest of the "Happy Days: Live" trio will take the stage tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. Meanwhile, The Bronze Fonz will be on the Riverwalk indefinitely.
