Something in the first sentence struck me:
Not the per capita number of bars in Green Bay; that shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody (especially since Curly Lambeau used the area's lax enforcement of Prohibition as a recruiting tool in the early days), but by the mention of a drink named after Vince Lombardi.
What the heck is a "Lombardi on the rocks"? Anybody come across this one before? Is that anything like a "Milwaukee martini," slang for beer with a Spanish olive? Perhaps a little creative license on Eskenazi's part? Or was there a real local cocktail named in Lombardi's honor?
I really hope it's the latter. If anybody can shed some light (or even better, can supply a recipe), please drop me a line.
