We very well might end up back there one day, but for those that aren't from there or have "married into Milwaukee" as I have, the provincialism, binge-drinking, and local-sports fanaticism can be a turn off. Otherwise, it's great!
I've heard that Wisconsin takes the beer binge-drinking to a higher level, but provincialism and sports team fanaticism seem to have strong footholds in many cities. In Pennsylvania, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh have those attributes well covered.
