Me, the missus, drewbeerme, and his Mrs. will be in Madison. Likely Friday.

Grabbed the tickets at in person sales though.




I definitely plan to arrive earlier on Friday this time to get in on all the bar activities before hotel activities.

I’ll probably take that Friday off so we can head up earlier in the day this time. Last year Maduro was pouring pints of Black Note for $4 starting at noon, hopefully they have something like that set up during the lunch hour and we can head downtown later that night as well.

I’m thinking Friday looks like:
1. GTMW volunteer shift
2. Ian’s pizza for lunch
3. Maduro for Bell’s
4. ??
5. ??
6. Profit!!

I usually roll into town Friday around noon for lunch at Vintage.. then check in.. and hit up Maduro to meet up with people.

Last year I believe it went Maduro, Goose Island Event (Which was crazy), jaunt over to Brickhouse for ticks, and back to the square for a couple FFF new beers..

Bed early enough to deal with set up in the morning.

Maybe the wife and I can land late Thursday night (after work) so that we have all of Fri/Sat/Sun free. It’s going to depend on what jobs we have/get when we move.

THIS IS GONNA RULE Y’ALL!

Just got confirmation that the check was cashed, so I’ll be there for sure. Anyone from Chicago want to carpool up to Madison?

Depending on how many I have in my car, I would be happy to hook you up with a ride. I will keep you updated on how many end up going from our group.
