Down by the River



OK. This isn't Cleveland or Milwaukee or Minneapolis or Neato-Peachie-Keen America but every thursday night we have music on the river. http://www.waterfest.org/ Now it may not be the biggest names, and it may be a lotta retreads&stuff....but it is extremely affordable (pffft-I get freebies, anyways!) and the sunsets are great, it's only four blocks from home.....


bad news....they only sell Budweiser products
good news... Oblio's is only four blocks...I can drink good beer FIRST....
good stuff....bands that rock and might be hard to see otherwise....Iguanas, Old 97's, Paul Sanchez...and some great local and regional bands
bad stuff..... a lotta 'oldie' shit
...it's on thursday nights because it is easier to book acts with a spare night and with some excellent local sponsorship....it is affordable as all get out for anyone who wants to go.
And no one in the office really really expects me to get anything done on fridays anyways.....
Ok. Ain't no big deal, but this is a slice of my Wisconsin and I wish you all could come. First round is on me..... but only if you drink the cheap beer!

ME, are you doubting the slogan of Old Milwaukee and saying that it doesn't get any better than that? Hater.

Old Milwaukee is made from Old Milwaukeeans..... a recycling project.

Dude, gas costs an arm and a leg, and trying to drive one-handed with a single foot for two pedals, well, that's pretty tough. I'll have to hitchhike. I'll make sure to bring my axe. That'll give me some free rides. Pick me up or I'll cut you in half!

Mad Hatter IPA

www.newhollandbrew.com

"Mad Hatter not only explodes with complex flavors, but it echoes with subtle, balanced malt notes. This sensory symphony is punctuated by a distinctive hop aroma that's the most wonderful punch in the nose you'll ever experience."

I am a beer snob.
