There are French fries at pretty much every eating establishment, even the one's that aren't French restaurants. In order to see which fries are worth their salt, I irreparably damaged my health and upped my cholesterol trying some of Milwaukee's most popular fries.
Somehow, the chain most associated with Wisconsin didn't even make last years rankings - but have no fear, that error has been rectified this year as Culver's took the top spot from last years winner, Chick-fil-A.

Despite the fact that it's cold outside, I wake up in the middle of the night a lot these days thinking about frozen custard. That's because I'm co-authoring a book about this delicacy at the moment and it's consuming me even more than I consume custard, which is saying something.

Mike Busalacchi grins when he says he is searching for reversible shirts. It would be handy to turn his clothes inside out around noon every day because with his son Vinnie he owns and operates franchises from two distinctly different national restaurant chains.
