The Land of the Packer Backers

Things I know nothing about:
1. Sportsball
2. The love of Sportsball

You know who does love Sportsball? Green Bay, Wisconsin. Home of the Green Bay Packers, this town is football all the way. I have never been here before, so I was excited to check it out! I arrived in town kinda late: 7pm. Since it is still winter, 7 is dark dark dark. I have been looking forward to getting to the Downtown area and finding something delicious.

Now, if you don’t know, Monday is traditionally a day that restaurants are closed. I found this the case at a few places a drove by that looked promising. BLARGH! I was not deterred though, I knew I could find something that was not another Applebee’s.

I did! On the corner of Crook and Washington: Fox Harbor Pub & Grill shone like a beacon. I could go for a burger and a cocktail after a long day of driving and talking. Walked in to a large bar, full of people in Badger, Packer, & Brewers gear (I told you: SO MUCH SPORTBALL). I bellied up to the bar and ordered myself a drink.

Plus #1:
pint glass of whiskey. Love it, Wisconsin. I perused the menu, very much bar fare: Wings, Nachos, Fried Cheese Curds. They had a big menu of wraps, sandwiches, salads and burgers as well. I thought, burger and salad to go with my whiskey was the way to go. I opted for the “Hot Harbor Special”: a big ol’ burger with a spicy feta blend, fried jalapeƱos, bacon and lettuce. With a side salad, that sounded good to me.

Side Salad: not surprisingly, bag of salad. Totally fine, nothing exciting or terrible. Just bag of salad.

WHOA. This was a doozy. Great amount of spice, but not so spicy that it can’t be eaten, the cheesy blend gave it a messy goodness I love in a burger. The jalapeƱos weren’t very flavorful, probably could have done without them. But all in all, a good burger on a cold Monday night. I have a feeling this place is PACKED (no pun intended) when there is a sporting event going on. It is about 3 miles from Lambeau Field, so I am sure it is a destination for people going to the games.

In summation: Good bar food! And big drinks.
