There are a lot of bars in the Upper Peninsula, hundreds of them, some of them little more than fishing shacks with whiskey and whitefish for sale, many of them making almost as much money from Friday fish fries as they do from pouring shots. Randy and Kevin, somewhat ambitiously, decided to visit them all.
It took them the better part of a year to go from the easternmost bar in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (Chucks’ Place on Drummond Island) to the westernmost (The Midway Bar in Ironwood), 364 miles away. They crisscrossed the U.P., up and down, back and forth, sometimes driving 400 miles in a day, hitting seven or eight bars and having at least one drink in each and every one, going from Grand Marais to Escanaba, Copper City to Iron Mountain, Houghton to Ishpeming, Marquette to Menominee.
