We might say it's "okay", but it really isn't.

If you live in Rochester, you know that there are just some things that you DON'T DO. There are also some things that you DEFINITELY DO. Which ones have you done (or refrained from) before?

    Accept that some construction is constant.

    Let's be honest here - we basically have 6 months of winter in Rochester. Because of this, construction all seems to happen at once from May - (potentially) early October. IT'S EVERYWHERE.

    You just can't escape it.

    Cheese curds and beer are the only "Wisconsin thing" you're allowed to like.

    You can't hate on cheese curds. It's impossible.

    However, feel free to hate on the Green Bay Packers as much as you want.

    Milk "Thursdays" every week that you can.

    Beautiful Minnesota summer/spring weather means milking every bit of it! We don't see it often, so when it's around we attend EVERY edition of Thursdays on 1st & 3rd or Rochesterfest day.

    Delay your merge onto 52.

    Trust me... no one else needs to get anywhere.

    Meet at Cafe Steam at least once a month.

    Wanna be seen in Rochester? Here's one spot to go! You might not get too much work done though, because you'll probably know everyone already in there.

    Assume everyone works at Mayo.

    Sure, someone may or may not actually work there - but you always have to ask.
