Milwaukee TV station WISN has tracked down some of Wisconsin’s Democratic senators at the Clock Tower Resort and Conference Center in Rockford, Ill.

We couldn’t help but notice that the hotel bar there is the “Tilted Kilt,” whose logo features a St. Pauli girl gone bad.

Fancy digs.

Late Update: Illinois readers emailing in to inform us that the Tilted Kilt is a regional chain that’s basically a knock-off of Hooters.

Later Update: Late word is that the Democratic senators initially all met up at the Clock Tower Resort — a rendezvous point of sorts — but have since gone their separate ways, although not back to Wisconsin.

Last Update: Clearly I’m not up to speed on the proliferation of Hooters-like chains. TPM Reader SG gives me the smackdown: “Duuuude, that is not just a local or regional chain – they’re everywhere. But kudos to you for not knowing!”
