Grapes were first planted in what is today the Lake Wisconsin AVA by Agoston Haraszthy in 1847.
The Wisconsin Ledge AVA has over 20 wineries with about 400 acres of vines.
Many cold-hardy grapes are grown here including Marechal Foch, La Crescent, Frontenac, Marquette, and Petite Pearl.
The Niagara Escarpment and Lake Michigan frame the AVA, providing great growing conditions.
We have glacial soil over limestone bedrock with a mineral-rich aquifer.

NAS Classical Music Monday

Deux Arabesques - Claude Debussy
Originally composed for piano, this performance is interpreted on Harp.

“[Debussy’s] view of a musical arabesque was a line curved in accordance with nature, and with his music he mirrored the celebrations of shapes in nature made by the Art Nouveau artists of the time.”

Harps are intricate instruments. Here’s how they work.

“What if I told you I was at The Sardine Can [local bar] last week?”

A young customer asked us after we asked for her ID, which she didn’t have, and told her we can’t accept a picture of her ID.

So, no, customer, you telling us a story about how you were recently at a bar does not constitute valid proof of age.

Memers and debunkers are just as controlled by propaganda as the people on Facebook and Twitter.
It’s like NPC memeing/debunking
“I meme about the current thing”.
I know I’ve done this exact same thing in the past. But this particular incident made me aware it. I’m trying to be more cognizant of how the media controls me and my thoughts.
IMO all the ‘it’s fake/it’s real’ and the memes are exactly what they wanted to happen. I concur with what @GMOdysseys pointed out about a spell.

We had to put down my parent’s yellow lab, Pearl, last week after discovering cancer that had grown into her spinal cord. At least she isn’t in pain anymore.
She loved stealing my mother’s tomatoes from the garden…and then throwing them up later.
Also some pictures of Pearl and our old black lab, Mabel, who passed away about 5 years ago.
I’ll miss them both.

@obihahn squeezing that little piggy into a kiss boot last night was next level fucked up 💥

ITM from Sturgis SD..I just walked by a guy having a PBR for breakfast. These are my people. 🏍🏍🏍

Tryna stay cool out here at Rock the South festival in AL.

A new coworker! She previously worked for another liquor store on this side of town for four years.

It is staggering the number of customers who walk in, look at her, recognize her, and immediately ask “What are you doing here??” Also the number of customers she recognizes.

Maybe this sort of thing only happens in Wisconsin. We do have the vast majority of drunkest cities in the US here in Wisconsin.

plant based implies the existence of meat cringe

Hey Green Bay area noagendites, I am gonna be in your fine city next week. Any suggestions for river access (lake is ok too I guess), places to eat, and/or things to do? It's a work trip so I won't have much free time until the weekend.

This bamf slapped so much French hooker cheek, toyed with lightning, and founded a country: this is what he gets to stare at now
