WISCONSIN - Teens can struggle with traffic rules and driving safety.

But you can bet most know their way around a smartphone.

That's why the Wisconsin DMV introduced a new app to help young drivers.

The Driver Practice Test is available for iPhone and Android.

It gives users a 15-question, multiple-choice quiz that helps them prepare for the written driving test.

Their score is displayed instantly.

The app is free for all users.

TOMAHAWK - Two best friends turned into business partners about a year ago.

Bill Eastwood and Blake McMahon own Outboards Bar and Grill in Tomahawk.

The duo's combined restaurant and business experience helped them hit the ground running.

Fish quality comes first at Outboards.

"Friday night is the night that pretty much everyone goes out to eat. So if you don't have a good fish fry, people around here start talking!" say Eastwood.

For people with food intolerance, eating a fish fry platter can be nearly impossible.

So, Outboards offers alternatives like gluten-free beer-battered fish.

"We kind of put a twist on things and do it our own way. You can get fries, but you can get quinoa or a fresh vegetable," says McMahon.

When summertime comes, Outboards' patio overlooks the ski show and music on the river.

Outboards serves fish starting at 11 a.m.
