As anyone who lives in Wisconsin knows, alcohol is common at most public events. Now there is a group calling itself "Drunk in Public Picking up Litter." What looks like a very good natured and well-intentioned people are now partnering with local taverns to pick up trash.
The event coincides with a new feature series on Wisconsin Public Radio entitled "High Tolerance: Wisconsin's Complicated Relationship with Alcohol."
