I just looked at the forecast-it's going to be 102 degrees on Thursday!!!! I think we are going down early, but we'll be down on Water Street in a nice A/C'd bar as opposed to walking around the Summerfest grounds.

You'd think the grounds would be cooler since it's right on Lake Michigan, but it never is. Damn that is hot. I haven't hung out on Water Street in years. Are you driving to the Summerfest grounds? I'm trying to remember the "secret" parking spots so I can avoid the large surface lots.

I was just on Water St. in April...

Yeah, that is hot. A one day bullet of heat looking at the forecast. I already know I will be in one of the lots for FF, just because I really do not feel like looking for other parking and having a walk. Perhaps I will stop at Bryant's... Coolest Milwaukee bar I ever have set foot in. It is one of those places you would never know is a bar and has been there forever... Perhaps the darkest bar in Milwaukee as well.

The cocktail list is truly fucking outstanding.

Bryant's... Since '38

Maybe we'll get lucky and have a nice lake breeze. We were down on the lake today and tonight, and at around 5:00 it was SO HOT - I think about 88 or so? But then the wind turned and by 8:30 - 9:00 you needed a jacket, and I was even cold with my jacket on.

By the time Foos take the stage it should have cooled down at least some. I'm guessing they'll go on 9:00-ish? I can't remember if the headliners have to finish at 11:00 or 11:30. Anyone else know?

Forecast is down to 97 for a high w/chance of thunderstorms. Winds are out of the west, so no lake breeze for us

Without spending $1,000,000,000 or winning them and being one lucky bastard, you could not get them.

Good on you.

You feeling better and good enough to make it? Was looking forward to seeing you, but know you were on the fence because you've been feeling below par.

Awesome, Michael! Looking forward to seeing you again. Emily introduced us at the Metro pre-Lolla show last August - I'm LeAnn.

Great score on the tickets!

I'm going to decide tomorrow. I think I'm going to make it work, but don't think I'll be good hanging out on the Summerfest grounds in the extreme heat. I might have to get dinner or find a bar someplace close and just go for the Foos. I have a hotel close by that night so can crash right after the show since you all are driving home after.

I still have Record Store Day goodies for you!
