Home for the weekend

Sorry to post this more than 48 hours after arriving in Jackson, but here's the announcement that I'm home for the weekend. It's been a pretty lame weekend in J-town (not surprising) but more because I have a cold than that Jackson is lame (well, that's debatable).

The highlight so far has certainly been my family's trip tonight to the Bergen Bar. Bergen, MN population: 10 (maybe?) The Bergen Bar is famous for good burgers, steaks, etc. but I like it for the fact that you can do set-ups. If you're not familiar, you order a set-up (soda), you bring your own liquor. It's fabulous. We brought our Crown in a paper bag, but saw MANY special leather carrying cases especially for set-up bars. Good times.

Does Wisconsin do this? It's done in bars w/ no liquor license, so I feel like it's not done in WI because everybody has a liquor license - do you even need one in WI? I feel like they're "suggested" but not required because that might prevent someone from selling alcohol and getting drunk at any moment - something Wisconsinites strive to avoid.
