I didn’t go to Summerfest.
Truth be told, this is the first year I haven’t attended and for some reason I feel badly about it.
I mean, not going to Summerfest is sacrilegious in the minds of some locals, and since I consider myself to be a "Milwaukee blogger", well, I probably should have made more of an effort to get to one of the largest music festivals in the Midwest. Now I have nothing interesting to write about (I kid, I kid).
Anyway, Scott kindly gave me two free Summerfest tickets, so I intended on going Wednesday night and then again on Sunday afternoon. Well, Wednesday night summoned torrential rain and, really, it wasn’t worth getting soaked, so I chalked that night up to a rainout and planned to make it up on Sunday. Then, Sunday rolled around and it was so gorgeous outside that I was forced to spend the entire afternoon poolside. I swam and got some sun...Man, it was terrible.
Naturally, I feel really, really awful about missing the "Big Gig" this year.
Did you have a chance to go? If so, feel free to share your adventures with all of us wayward readers in the comments section. I’d love to hear what you faithful Summerfest-goers did.
As for me, there’s always next year.
