1) ALL THE CHILI (all ages)
Sunday 01/29:

With the return of cold weather in this unseasonably-warm winter, it’s once again chili season. And as if on queue, Milwaukee’s featuring 3 big-time chili competitions on Sunday. Plan it right and you can reasonably stop at each one of them. Bring the antacids.

National and local heavy-hitter musicians are coming together once again to raise money and awareness to help battle childhood cancer at Pablove: KT TunstallGoran (of The Gufs) & Willy Porter, Chris Porterfield, and our childhood icon Brett Newski.

NOT TO DO

1) Spend the next 9 months crying
Packer Nation

Current mood.

We ran out of table, Packer brethren. That being said, we honestly went much further than most of us thought back in week 10. So, hooray?

Ugh, it’s baseball season, isn’t it?
