Sadly, for those of us currently residing in the Badger State, Dark Overlord David Appelman has as yet to announce a Wisconsin-centric event like the one that just occurred this past weekend in New York City. (Although, to be clear, I didn’t actually ask him — i.e. the Dark Overlord — to his face or anything. Guy is scary.)
However, still flush with the joys of the New York event, I was excited yesterday to come across what appears to be a totally acceptable alternative.
Sponsored by Miller Park Drunk (@millerparkdrunk), the event — known, for too many obvious reasons, as the Pants Party — takes place at Milwaukee’s Miller Park on August 29th, starting at 11:00 am and going until Carlos Gomez adopts a skill-appropriate approach at the plate. Or till the game is over. Either one.
So far as I can tell, the Pants Party is an event fully dedicated to the exploration of The Good Times. Brats will be served, adult sodas will be (responsibly!) imbibed, and baseball will be watched.
Details about, and tickets for, the event are available here, the meat-tastic menu is available here, and a rousing post about the merits of the Pants Party — written special for MPD by Wezen Ball’s Larry
Granville Granillo — is available here.
Note: on account of I, Carson Cistulli, have had no in arranging this event — have actually only known of its existence for 24 hours or so — neither I nor FanGraphs assume any responsibility for your decision to attend. So if it’s just a weird cult gathering or something — well, don’t blame me.
