This Tweet About Jo-Cats Offends Me To My Core
For those who are not from Milwaukee reading this, let me tell you a story about Jo-Cats. It is a local bar in Milwaukee. Some would call it a dive. Some would call it a hook-up bar. Whatever you call it, it is a great time on Brady Street. When I first moved back to Milwaukee, my buddy Eric and I went there often because he lived close by and the bar was fucking fun. We were 24-25 living it up. It was small then, now it expanded to two floors, and the crowd got significantly younger. THat’s okay, I’m not a hipster about that sort of thing. Trends come and go. Still, it was my favorite bar for a long time before I hung it up last August. There is a podcast about it if you’re wondering why I retired.
Have I been back since? A couple of times pre-COVID, but I don’t push for it as I did years ago. That said, I still take pride in it. This is one of my Milwaukee spots. Just like Chopstix, Dogg Haus and a few other places. Therefore, this squid’s tweet about Jo-Cats’ second floor could not be more wrong.
I’ve been out of Milwaukee for over a year and still have nightmares about being trapped on the 2nd floor of Jo Cats

Listen, it is not hard to navigate their second floor. It’s jam-packed and you worry the floor is falling out yet you can find a way out. Take the plan that my good pal Seth put together where you Mike Alstott your way through the crowd. And if you want to be nicer, a football swim move works just fine too. I never get the idea of people hating crowded bars. Do people hate fucking fun? Embrace the chaos one time for me, my man.
Still love you Cats even if I’m a little too old for you.
