Being held Feb 11th in Traverse City, Michigan at the Commons (Where the summer festival was held).

Tickets are $30.

Lots of great beer as usual and hopefully lots of interesting and fresh music as usual.

Honestly I'm getting somewhat "used" to beer festivals, but this one tends to have lots more musical acts and I've discovered several bands that I never would have found otherwise.

Plus the wife and I use it as a weekend to get away and relax and spend time together.

Here is the Link to the website of the people putting it on.

Homer, are you still going?
I'd like to go but the finances are not letting me. I still plan on going to the summer fest and camping again like last year.
Here's the music list in case you have not seen it.

We're still going, but I just realized we have not reserved a room!

It's such a good time, I am pretty sure we are going to the summer one as well, but with a daughter graduating and going off to college... Plus, I am very certain there is some other big event going on this summer that I can't remember.

I have not heard of any of those bands (except the gagpipe band, and I heard of that blues guy in the Free Press...) But each time I've gone to this I've found a new awesome music experience. I have not reason to doubt that will happen again.

I was REALLY hoping Euforquestra was going to be there again this year.

Don't know them. If I could pull this off, I'd like to see The Crane Wives, a sweet little band from Grand Rapids who got their exposure from doing open mic night at Founders. Plus they are playing at Short's on Friday night.

Yeah, they are on my for shore list. Only acts I'm not interested in is the gagpipes and the Honty Tonk band.

Unless they have hot ladies. I'm shallow that way.

I am too. Maybe that's why I'm interested in seeing TCW....
Ok, the gf is paying and says it's for my birthday which was last month. We got the Comfort Inn in TC for $64 for Sat. So I guess we are going. She is ordering tickets tonight. I think I might tell her to use one of her 8,000 sick days and head up Friday to Short's.
A funny coincidence is the banjoist Tom Gunnels for The Crane Wives is the son of a parapro that works at my girlfriends elementary school.

LOL! I asked the wife if she wanted to go cheap or get something nice. She said since we are going to be out late there is not reason to waste money on a nice room.

So I got a room at the Travelodge for less than $40. Yay for the offseason! (I hope the beds are not to uncomfortable!) o.O

I was going to talk her into maybe going for an extra night, maybe head up to Shorts too, since I've never been there. But she is super busy at work (wouldn't be surprised if she goes in on Sunday) and she made plans for the Band Director and I to meet at a local pub.

Oh well, I'm looking forward to that almost as much as going to the festival!

Damn, that's a good deal.
Short's is a cool place, definitely worth seeing.

She signed us up for Friday night also but can't get out of school so we can't leave her place in Davison until about 4:30. That is going to put us in Bellaire about 7:30. I hope we can get in.

I should email my wife and see if she would like to go up on Friday.

I am betting $5 that she plans on going in to work Saturday morning though.
