Green Bay, Wisconsin, is one of my favorite places on earth. I know, it sound strange. Who'd pick the frozen tundra over the waves in Maui? Um, me.
I'm a business reporter and I just love what happens here. A place where, despite the tough economic times for blue collar Americans, buying and supporting everything Packers is part of life. A place that ridiculously has its own NFL team even though their city has the same population as Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Consumers here actually feel the "need" to have the new Aaron Rodgers jersey even though times are tight and don't even a flinch with the credit card. I did some "reporting" at the Green Bay Distillery, a new bar that surrounds Lambeau Field, and spoke with its owner.
