I won I won I won!!!! Finally after trying the lotto all these years. So yeah, I’m a little excited.



Looking for suggestions on where to stay and what to do.



IP trades would be welcomed as well.

Fly into Chicago (cheaper), drive to Madison and visit New Glarus on the way, scroll past trades.

Hmmm, I was thinking about driving and making it a long weekend, like hit Greenbush, 3F’s, etc on the way. Didn’t really think about the flying though. Definately gonna hit New Glarus.

Oops, for some reason I thought you were from TX. Scroll past t0rin0’s advice.

My single ticket request looks like it didn’t make it through. If someone has 1 extra ticket, would you please BM me? I’ll make it worth your while!

My wife and I are officially in for this. First time for both of us.



Her aunt runs a bar/restaurant in Madison (Greenbush Bar) that is an Italian place, usually just open for dinner. But they’re going to have their first-ever GTMW weekend event this year, a beer breakfast featuring Peruvian Morning, Illumination, and others. She’s trying to decide, though, whether she wants it to be a kick-off event on Friday morning or a ’hair of the dog’ breakfast on Sunday. Any opinions?

Friday morning would be great as a way to kickstart the festivities I think. Not to mention that if I am not mistaken Greenbush has some great bakeries as well to sample. That is one person’s humble perspective as a former resident

As I mentioned, I don’t get into town till 11-12 on Friday.

But a lot of locals take the day off.. especially members that volunteer with setup, etc..
