I just went through and deleted a couple of posts that probably shouldn't have been here. If you see something questionable, please let me know. I don't always remember to check on new posts right away, so I appreciate the heads up!

Remember, we're here to not only talk to other Local Guides, but also to share experiences, places, and generally anything of interest to anyone who lives in the metro area. In that respect, any "light" advertising that might fit (invitation to try a new restaurant, store, etc) is allowed. However, any commercial post is subject to removal at my discretion. Basically take time to understand what the group is about before posting, and if in doubt, ask first.

Of course, in addition to Summerfest there's deep fried everything at the Wisconsin State Fair. Anyone have any "insider" tips for getting to and from the fair, what to see while there, etc.?

Local guides: Any thoughts on the new point system? I already have Google Music, so the perk doesn't mean much, but I do like that they added additional levels. I think that it encourages more participation.

Who's ready for the 50th Anniversary of the "Big Gig"? Summerfest is right around the corner!

So summer is in full swing - right? (As I see 50 and rain today)

Lots of things to see and do this time of year. Of course, the Brewers are doing really well, and watching a game at Miller Park is always a good time. There's Leon's for custard, 7 Mile Fair for whatever, and (if you hadn't heard) they've expanded Mars Cheese Castle!

Get out there and tell us what we should be experiencing!

So...who's ready for spring? Where are some of your favorite springtime spots? Where would you recommend someone go to alleviate cabin fever?

I'm pretty much over this roller coaster weather! Fortunately it looks like it might be a nice weekend to go out exploring. I know I'm suffering from a little cabin fever - especially after the nice weather a few weekends ago!

Looking forward to being able to spend a little time at the lakefront soon.

We're up to over 70 members! Feel free to start a discussion about anything of interest in the area. We're here to talk about points-of-interest: Where do you like to go? Where do you like to eat? What was your experience like shopping at a certain store? Have a question about a town or event? Ask away! We're a community here.

By the way, feel free to discuss anything you'd like. I'd also love to hear from other Local Guides, like JD did below!

It's the first big snowfall of the year! Be safe out on the roads today as you go out exploring. Better yet, stay home and watch the Packers!

Now that Thanksgiving is out of the way, let's talk Christmas lights. What displays and/or neighborhoods do you all recommend? We hit the display at Country Springs every year. There's a fee, but it's an excellent display!
