Green Bay, Wisc., is the smallest city in America with a pro sports team. And throughout Wisconsin, the Green Bay Packers reign supreme.

But hundreds of miles away, in New York City, a Packer fan can feel pretty lonely. Fortunately for New York's small band of cheesehead expats, there's the Kettle of Fish — a Greenwich Village bar purchased in 1998 by a transplanted Wisconsinite and transformed into the Big Apple's number one spot for Packer backers.

Game days at the Kettle of Fish aren't just about football, beer and Wisconsin cheddar cheese. They're also about finding a small piece of home in the big city.
