Ahh Summerfest. I used to LOVE summerfest. In high school and college we would plan out what days we would go by who was playing at the Marcus. Then there were a few post-college crazy Rusted Root shows.
My eh feeling about summerfest started last year. Nate & I went one night and it was so hot and so crowded. We wanted to stay for a 10 PM show - I think it was Guster - and we made it until 9:15. We were home on the couch watching 2 1/2 men at 9:30. I didn't even have pregnancy to blame then!
This year, we weren't planning on going but then Nate won tickets this week at a golf outing so we headed downtown last night to get in some Summerfest action. Thankfully it was cool and not crowded. We enjoyed a variety of food - the white cheddar cheese curds at Saz's, a gyro and kabob, a veggie thai roll and some fried eggplant with marinara sauce. We took advantage of the happy hour special and got $1 off WATER (oh how things have changed). We tried winning free cookies at the Frontier Airlines booth and instead got a gift card for money off a flight. We watched some crazy basketball stunts and danced with the hippies at Dark Star Orchestra before heading home. I was in bed by 9:30 proving once again, for the second year in a row, that we might be too old for Summerfest, ha ha ha.
