Wisconsin 101: Ask not if there is beer, but where is the beer?

Here's what you get at a Milwaukee Catholic church festival:

1. Raffles
2. Gambling. Gambling!
3. Brats(wurst), hamburgers, fish fry (the double cheeseburger was excellent)
4. Beer. Of course.
5. Music. As in, a Styx tribute band that roars after the third song, "Immaculate Heart of Mary, how ya doin'?"

The "motorcycle only" parking.

You know you wish you were here. If it were like this year round, you couldn't keep people away from this place. Winter keeps out the riffraff.

I can only imagine. Closest I've ever been to that was in rural Pennsylvania. Oh, and the non-glamorous part of the California Sierras. I bet you have the greatest 4th of July.

I do wish I could have been at that concert.

We once saw a concert with Lou Gramm of Foreigner. Alas, the poor fellow didn't even know his own music.

That sounds pretty close to most festivals in Wisconsin! Not very formal, but so fun :)
