  1. I live about 4-4.5 hours away from Milwaukee in Western Wisconsin.

    I am considering making the trip. Will it be similar to the FanGraphs event as far as discussion, etc?

  2. Erik,

    I believe not – This is more of a game viewing party.

    Carson, will you be there? It is slightly unclear from your post!
    If so, I will make the trip from Minneapolis.

    I am open to the possibility of carpooling, in case anyone else in the MPLS/St. Paul area wants to head out there.

  3. Holy frick this is awesome.
    Although I may try to kidnap Carson and make him follow me around to describe every furniture item we see as either a “desk-piece”, “chair-piece” or “an incredibly round table”

  4. Meat-tastic menu? Like Prince I require something on the green side.

  5. Patrick’s right. Anyone going to this should expect nothing more than a fun tailgate with great food, beer, & people and hopefully a Brewers win over the Pirates. As you can imagine, with a site called Miller Park Drunk, the festivities are more social in nature than analytical.

    But I do think it’s going to be a great time. It sounds like there’s going to be a pretty good showing from Wisconsin-area bloggers (FG’s own Jack Moore mentioned he’d be going on Twitter last night, for example), so the conversation should be worthwhile.

    I hope a few more people in the area can make it, but make sure to get your tickets quick. I think the deadline is tomorrow.

  6. The only time you’ll find something green in Milwaukee is when they dye the beer green on St. Patty’s day.

  7. No kidding Bill. Grew up in Milwaukee… Brats galore.. and the only “veggies” are the hops in the beers. Good times.. Can remember seeing the Brewers (and the Packers) play at County stadium many times. (yes, back when the pack played several of their home games a year in Milwaukee..)

  8. Patrick: Yes, I’ll be there, and I look forward to meeting and high-fiving as many midwestern baseball nerds as possible.

    Just be warned, though: I’m not nearly as hilarious or affable in person as in print (if you thought I was one or the other to begin with). I’ve never admitted it before, but almost all my posts are ghostwritten by a team of foul-mouthed 8-year-olds, who — for obvious reasons — will not be attending this bacchanalian event.

  9. Whoa, there WILL be relish!

  10. Carson,

    I believe in you – It’ll be fine.

    And your 8 year olds can just stay in the car until we’re done drinking.

    And on a distinctly related note! If you turn out to be less hilarious in person (which seems natural, you have time in print to compose your thoughts)… Then I can simply DRINK until you seem hilarious again.

  11. Oh, and Lar, having Mr. Wezen-Ball there will be a wonderful treat.

    Your website is incredible, though how you find the time and passion for your oddities astounds me.
