Jeez, It’s Not Like There Isn’t Tons Of Other Stuff To Do In Green Bay In November


Obviously, by now everybody has heard about the news that the Favre clan has reserved 25-30 rooms at the Midway Motor Lodge on the weekend of November 1st, which coincidentally coincides with the Sunday that the Minnesota Vikings visit Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers.

Listen up, as a Midwesterner, I feel it is my duty to point out that there are plenty of activities going on every day in these parts that could occupy as well as entertain a family for a long weekend, and I’m sure this is why Favre’s family and friends have booked the rooms. Favre did live in Wisconsin for many years – perhaps he misses spending the winters in such a beautiful and hospitable locale. It’s just a strange kwinky-dink that the game just so happens to occur the same weekend. Remember, Favre is retired at this time, okay?

What follows is simply a sampling of the activities available to the Favres on the weekend of November 1st.

  • Celebrating 50 years of Exciting Discoveries in Glass: November 1st marks the last day of the one-year event at the Bergstrom-Mahler Museum in nearby Neenah, Wisconsin. Obviously, Brett was busy last November and he doesn’t want to miss the “world renowned glass paperweight collection we will create inspired exhibits to engage, excite and educate visitors throughout the year.” That sounds wonderful. And educational to boot.
  • Southern Door Arts & Crafts Fair: This one-day and one-day only event at the Southern Door Middle School in Sturgeon Bay boasts the “Largest Door County craft fair under one roof. Door prizes, food and beverages available. $2 per person admission.” Can’t miss.

If none of these tickle the Favre’s fancy, Wisconsin Dells is less than three hours away! Indoor water parks are the neatest!

And remember bow hunting season for white-tailed deer in Wisconsin runs from September 12th through November 19th. A fun excursion for the entire family.

See? There’s plenty to do in Wisconsin in November. All you have to do is look – and like really, really boring shit.

No wonder why they worship the Packers up there. Sheesh.
