It’s more than a game. Way more.


Whether you are into football or not, there is absolutely nothing like watching a Green Bay Packers game in a small tavern in Wisconsin…

Here in Polk County there is a little place called Ben’s Northern Bar.  It’s tiny; like twelve bar stools and a few tables but on game day it’s totally packed and standing room only with mostly men of all ages all dressed in their Packer gear; I mean caps and hats, shirts and jackets and belt buckles, and a few women in tight t-shirts and big jerseys and ponchos with glittered beer cozies.

Someone brings a Crock pot of Brats and someone brings chips and dips and I made a huge batch of Chex mix the old-fashioned way. (Oven not Microwave) It’s like a fun family party.  It is a party and you are family.

The game means so much to everyone  It’s a Team that is owned by the fans.  They yell and scream at the TV and moan and groan but when the Packers score, everyone is up and jumping and high-fiving and hugging.

It’s a great little place and they learn your name and favorite beverage quickly and never forget it.

So when you are cruising down Main Street in Luck, Wisconsin you better stop in for one.
