sweet. i knew there must be more to that city.
boooooooooooo!

Union Station IS NOT a fair impression of the city.


Lakeshore Drive! (just ONE little tiny example of how pretty the city can be).

I totally did…piss weather though…ok, here is my weekend story….

My best friend (I actually HATE using this term, for the record….what am I, 5 years old?) went with me for the weekend…she has become a huge fan over the last two years thanks to me and Milwaukee was her 3rd show on this tour. So, we drive up Saturday morning and got to Milwaukee around 3:00. Checked into the Hyatt and tried to figure out what to do for the night. We were going to grab dinner so I went down and talked to the concierge about where we could go. I refuse to go to chains when I am out of town, I want to go somewhere with local flavor, you know?

OK, so anyway, when I come back upstairs she was on the phone with her husband so I went down to the bar at the Hyatt and had a beer and waited for her to get off the phone. She calls me, I go back upstairs, and she is like “I know where we are going to dinner” and I’m all, “Sweet!” so I jump in the shower and we take off….its now like, 6:00. While we are in the car she is like, “You should wear your Cards hat because its pouring out” and I’m all, “Umm, okaaaaaaay”. I am rarely seen without my Cardinals hat but I thought we were going out to dinner and then to the bars on Water Street. Well, as usual, I’m chatting away, not paying attention to a thing, and she is driving. So, all of a sudden we are right next to Miller Park and I say, “I can’t believe the Cards are playing here this weekend and I’m not going. This sucks. Have you ever seen a game at Miller Park?” and she says, “I’m about to!” and I just flipped out. She bought these tickets like, 3 months ago for this game because she knew we were going to the concert. She forgot about them and then decided to keep it as a surprise. So, we park, get beers, and go to our seats. HOLY SHIT. OK, literally, third row, first baseline, right behind the Brewers dugout. Bev, for the record, that stadium is AWESOME. The people were super-cool, the seats were amazing, and I had a blast. I will definitely be back to see a game, regardless of who they are playing. The Cards got their asses handed to them (:laurelresting: ) so we left and went down to Water Street…got some food at Rock Bottom (I go there in Chicago for the rooftop so I thought I’d go in Milwaukee too). Ended up at a few other bars and then home. The Cardinals were staying at the Hyatt so we ended up at the hotel bar with Jason Isringhausen, Ray King, David Eckstein, Scott Seabol, and John Mabry. It was all of them and the two of us. Good times had by all.
Sunday….RAIN RAIN RAIN. Got lunch, went to the bar directly across from the Bradley Center and no one would put the Rams game on (damn Packers) so we ended back at the hotel bar because they WOULD put it on. Watched the Rams play a shitty first half and bring it back on the backhalf. Went to go stalk the band….missed them by literally 5 minutes and then went to another bar on Water Street to watch more football. Got ready for the show, went to concert, called bg, drank beer, left show, went to a sweet bar across the street from the venue (cant remember the name of it), got drunk, put $20 worth of U2 in the jukebox, everyone sang along, went to go stalk the band, found out they were “on a plane to Mexico before the houselights came on”, peed in an alley, went to another bar, came home, ordered pizza, passed out.
Got up Monday, drove to Chicago, decided to stay for the night, went to Four Farthings for drinks and then to River Shannon and Gamekeepers (I hate Gamekeepers), and then back to the Hilton downtown.
Got up yesterday morning, hopped a flight to Stl.

Phew!

Sounds like you had an awesome weekend.

Miller Park does indeed rock (though I do miss the old skool County Stadium).

Next time you come to Milwaukee, we must meet up.

I think you're talking about Turners, which is indeed a good spot.

Is that a Bud light in your pants or are you just happy to see me


I can't believe you weren't lynched for ordering a Bud in a Miller town.

11 ... you really made the rounds in Milwaukee. Were you sticking to Water Street or did you venture to other areas?

No....just about every single bar within walking distance of the Hyatt....

Including too much time spent at that little dive across the street
