Foods that Don’t Go Well With Skinny Jeans

88Nine’s Tarik Moody and Mil Mag’s Ann Christenson talk about new State Fair food, Man v. Food’s Milwaukee episode and an upcoming BBQ dinner.

We’re in the throes of Wisconsin State Fair and that means cream puffs, foods-on-a-stick and edible bugs. Edible bugs? It’s true. On this episode of This Bites (airing Fridays at 8 a.m. on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee), Tarik Moody and I talk about State Fair foods – new and old. We also preview a BBQ beer dinner happening later this month at Doc’s Commerce Smokehouse


Man v. Food visited Milwaukee last spring to take on and film some food challenges at Sobelman’s, Jake’s Deli and Mader’s German Restaurant. Tarik and I discuss what that all entails. The episode airs on Aug. 7. Read this in preparation for watching some big-time food consumption.
