30 Things Every Midwesterner Should Experience
Taste fresh ice cream and smoky ribs
Taste ice cream, thick and fresh, straight from the Babcock Hall Dairy, a University of Wisconsin-Madison operation said to make the Dairy State's best. Buy a cone or cup at the Daily Scoop Deli on the UW Memorial Union terrace. It tastes best from a seat on one of the terrace's trademark sunburst chairs with a Lake Mendota view (left).
Taste the tangy, smoky, sauce-slathered ribs at Arthur Bryant's, a 75-year Kansas City, Missouri, barbecue institution. For the most authentic experience, go to the 18th and Brooklyn location in the heart of the city's jazz district. It's the original.
