I really am glad they switched leagues, though, cause Cub fans are WAY more fun to give crap to than any in the American League. GOBREWERS!

Yeah, but with Kerry "Spliters" Wood, Mark Prior and now D. Lee on the D.L., our chances of a winning season are about the same as the chances that Sosa WASN'T juicing when he hit all those runs.

Which game? I'm going to be in Milwaukee on July 8th (is that the Sat night?) to watch the Cubs make Miller Lite out of the Brewers.

Cheese, you ever go to summerfest? ends July 9th. I'd try and sneak an extra day/night in for that if your into music etc.

Summerfest rocks! Literally! Way better than Taste of Chicago, for my money. Haven't been in years. When I went, it was usually on a Saturday. I'd get there early and spend the day, but get the hell outta there before nightfall - it just gets too darn crowded!

It's been 10+ years since I've been there too. Last time I went was on July 4th (Big Mistake). Left at midnight and didn't get home until 4a because of traffic. Seeing Cheese is 30 he'd probably have fun, I'm getting too old for nights at Summerfest as well . Or at least get a hotel downtown that you can crawl to.

That's about how long it's been for me! Each year I think about going, but haven't.

This year, I think I'll break that streak and actually take my girlfriend to Summerfest. I don't think she's ever been. After dark, maybe head over to the Milwaukee Ale House or the Water Street Brewery. Was in Beertown last Winter and stumbled upon the WSB while on our way to the MAH! I think I preferred it to the MAH!

To get back on-topic, HurricaneFloyd and/or ablrbrau, where did you end up visiting when you were in Chicago?

Yeah, it's Country Night when we're there. Booo. We are going to walk around the Water street area and hit up as many bars as we can before passing out.
