While the Wolski's stickers are a simple design, they're everywhere, standing as a label of pride for staying at the bar until closing time. I too, wanted to be a part of this tradition, and so I went to Wolski's for the first time on Saturday night.
I closed wolski's
Almost every Milwaukeean knows about the "I Closed Wolski's" bumper sticker. But did you know there are also free "I Closed Wolski's" women's panties?
Paul Johnson - who goes by "PJ" - has spent almost two decades behind the bar at Wolski's. Quick witted, fast with the pour and super easy to talk to, Johnson is the embodiment of the bartender who's made Milwaukee famous.
The "I Closed Wolski's" bumper sticker is spotted all over the city -- all over the world, in fact -- and yet so many Milwaukeeans never actually closed 'er down. Why is that?
