(UPDATE: This would be a good time to note that the entire throng of people on the Haus und Garten Tour is outside my front door. A few have sun umbrellas. And there's a golf cart.)
After the season ends, you've got the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, New Year's Eve, St. Patrick's Day, The Crawl for Cancer, The Friday at the Memorial Tournament and the Saturday at Comfest not presented by Morgan Ensberg. That's it. There needs to be a Comfest or something like it in the German Village. But I guess it's cool we'll have the 50th annual HAUS UND GARTEN TOUR next year. At least there's that. Recognize about half the people on it from the Varsity Club after the Wisconsin game.
Really liked the crew at The Patio last night. Saw just about every person I know. Maybe like .05 percent of the people I know, but still. Didn't take terribly long to find a beer, enjoyed the company of The 1, The Godfather, Mathlete, Johnny K and Three Clicks. Night went by too fast. I think we got there at 10 p.m. and people scattered around 1 a.m.
