"More bars than grocery stores"
The top map was reportedly generated by searching the Google Maps directory for the terms "bar" and "grocery store," and the bottom one by the normalized (?) number of mentions of "bars" in Google Maps.
I would have some doubts re the validity of the data, especially re the regional variation in terminology (bar vs. pub vs. nightclub vs. whatever) and possible influences of licensing laws, but the concentration in Wisconsin certainly does reflect the state's reputation.
