Free Event: Roll Out the Barrel at a Milwaukee Brewers Game (Free!!!)

Meeting Point Details (for those not tailgating):
If you don't want to tailgate (or just can't make it due to time constraints), I will be at this meeting point beginning at 6:45pm.  If you're coming by bar/pub shuttle, it's basically where they drop you off.  The AM sports radio network usually has a trailer parked at this point, and that is where you will find me.  I will wait at this point until 7:05pm, and if you do not show up to claim your free ticket by then, your ticket will be donated to members of the general public.  In other words, I don't intend on missing the first pitch, nor do I intend on coming back downstairs after the game has started to meet you at the gate to give you your ticket.  

*****

Tailgate Details:
We'll do our absolute best to try to be as close to one another as possible in the MOLITOR General Parking Lot (Parking Map).  The easiest way to get to the Molitor Lot is to take 94 W from the city and get off at the Mitchell Blvd exit, proceed north (right) and take the first right onto Story, following it until you see the parking attendants.  From the west, you would take 94 E to Hawley, go north until Bluemound, take a right (east) and follow Bluemound until you see the parking attendants at Yount Dr.  Advanced parking passes are 9 dollars; you can also pay for parking on the day of the game at a slightly higher rate of 10$. 

What would be helpful is if, say - one or two of you all met me and Jennifer right beforehand so we could enter the lot in sequence and secure as many consecutive spaces as possible.  We'll do our absolute best to be in the lot by no later than 5:15pm.   

I've created a signup sheet that you can access here:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AsJ171zrqvcFdF9SSHZRYjdZZ2tUYXU3X2w5cDV0aGc&usp=sharing

The first line's entry should serve as an example of items you can bring.  Cheers!

Ready. Set. Go!!! Spring training is already in full swing, and my lovely wife (sports medicine) has already had her photo taken with Hank the dog. If you happen to watch any of the games this week either live or on tape delay, she's the long blonde/brunette sitting right behind home plate in the second row. Tough life, I know.

Anyway - it's not often that this happens, but your assistant organizer Andy has absorbed the costs associated with twenty five (25) tickets to the Monday, April 21st game. Game time is at 7:10pm, and it's against the Padres. If you feel "guilty" about coming for free, bring something to share for a pregame tailgate or just buy me a beer. 

To be equitable to our longstanding members, as well as the familiar new faces that we've seen around this calendar year, a few basic requirements and reasonable requests:

1) You may bring only 1 guest.
2) You must have attended at least one event, not including the anniversary party at EVO.
3) Alternatively, you can come to one of the upcoming events prior to April 21st where one of the organizers can say, "Yep, met [insert name].Be mindful, however, that there is a limit to the number of people who can come to the game.
4) If you RSVP "yes", and cannot make it, and you do not notify us by the evening of Sunday, April 20th, you will likely be invited to have a long-standing and long-term position on our "purgatory list." In other words, if you can't make it, someone else would likely be more than happy to take your spot, so don't be "that guy" or "that girl". 
5) As you RSVP, you will automatically be placed on the waitlist until one of the organizers adds you to the "yes" list.  (more of an FYI).

We have the first two rows of TB 421. There's 13 seats in one row, and 12 in the other, so it worked out pretty well.  As the date gets nearer, we'll talk about coordinating a tailgate.  PBRs and Klements, fo sho.   

Thanks for a great first year, and hope to see you at the game!

    Since this is only my second time to a meetup event with this group I am not familiar with those attending. My guest and I will be arriving about 5:15 and will do our best to locate the tailgate party. If someone going could please call me in case we can't find you. [masked]-9389. Thank you!

    April 21, 2014

  • W A.

    Call/text me tonight at[masked] if you really get disoriented. Check out all the details above for meeting points for those tailgating vs those not tailgating. Jason, Jennifer got off early so I'm going to pick her up real quick, and I'll text or call you where I am at around 515. I suspect that since we're coming from the west, I'll just park it somewhere on Bluemound by the Molitor Lot and wait for you to show up.

    April 21, 2014

  • W A.

    Ya'll remember to bring a poncho or something for the tailgate. We may get rained on for a bit, and I'm not that fancy where I have an instant canopy.

    April 21, 2014

    • Sarah

      I can also bring a portable grill

  • W. Kelly O.

    I'm not sure if I will have to time to drop by my house, but I can either chip in to help the cause or if I do have time, I can bring beer and chips.

    April 21, 2014

    • W A.

      Whatever you'd like, man. If you have time to get some beer and chips, that'd be greatly appreciated. If not, it won't be the end of the world.

      April 18, 2014

    So sorry to cancel. If you aren't able to fill my ticket, I'm happy to pay you for it. Disappointed to miss this but it's out of my control.

    Sorry, I have to take my mother to a late doctor's appointment. Not sure how long it is going to last so I better decline :-(

  • Robert M.

    Where do we go to buy parking tickets? The link above does not work.

    April 16, 2014

    • W A.

      The link above has been fixed, but its intent was just to show the general parking map and where the Molitor lot is. You can purchase parking on the day of the game for 10$ from any of the cashiers at the lot, and at this point - if you want the discounted 9$ parking passes, you'd have to go to the box office.

      April 16, 2014

    • W A.

      To clarify - you'll have to go to the box office prior to Monday.

      April 16, 2014

  • Robert M.

    I just bought two tickets in TB 422 right behind home plate. Row 1 seats 3 & 4. Looking for someone who needs a seat.

    April 16, 2014

      There are approximately 81 games a season, JENNY. Kidddddding.

  • Criminal B.

    Can I just buy my own ticket and come hangout for the tailgate?

    March 7, 2014

    • W A.

      of course!

      March 7, 2014

  • W A.

    FYI - we'll likely shoot to do the tailgate in Molitor (north of the freeway off of Yount - fastest to get off at Mitchell Blvd and take it to Bluemound) since it's the last one to fill up and there's a better chance of us being able to park close(r) together. Remember that if you go to the box office, you can pick up an advance parking pass for 9$ instead of 15$ on the day of. See you all around!

    Hi! I just realized that there's a very good possibility I will be out of town that day. I'm changing my RSVP to a No, so someone else can get a chance to go. I'll see everyone at another event!

    March 6, 2014

  • Rosanna D.

    Hi Andy, Mike and I are comfortable paying for our own ticket (since you're already at 25) but we WILL be attending the Padres game regardless since that's Mike's team and want to participate in the tailgate. Let me know if we need to purchase our tickets separately or if you will purchase additional seats nearby in a second batch for us to reimburse you on game day.
