On August 5, Doughboys—a popular chain restaurant podcast—came to Milwaukee for a long-awaited live show at Turner Hall and to review Kopp’s Frozen Custard for the first time in the show’s history. Joined by writer and comedian Marisa Pinson, hosts Nick Wiger and Mike Mitchell delighted a ballroom full of fast food fanatics by discussing the beloved Metro Milwaukee custard chain and some other area eating institutions before sampling some local items Milwaukee Record procured for their “Drank Or Stank” and “Snack Or Wack” segments.

Over the course of the enjoyable show, the trio also talked about an ill-fated attempt to eat at a George Webb, they raved about Milwaukee, and they tried State Fair Cream Puffs. Along the way, the crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to Wiger’s mom (who was in attendance), Mitch sipped from bottle of Pepto Bismol as he battled tummy troubles, and they weighed in on whether Kopp’s or Culver’s was better.

If you missed this month’s Doughboys live show at Turner Hall or you want to listen to it all over again, you can stream it HERE or anywhere else you get podcasts. Wow.
