Festa starts today down at the Summerfest grounds. We have free tickets so we'll probably stop in Sunday for a while. Northwestern Mutual also has their big shin-dig this week and they will fill the hotels for their week of events.
It's a hot and humid day today but I love it. We staged the backyard for tomorrow's big event. It will be a three grill Saturday.
The highlight of the day was stopping at Otto's Liquor Store. The prices are excellent and we always walk out with free t-shirts and beer glasses. Plus, a ticket to Festa and another for Germanfest! It's not much than the other liquor stores from us but Otto's is getting all of our business!
Baseball resumes regular season play today. The Cubs called up rookie Kyle Schwarber again. He's 2-2 so far today. The kid can get but he did commit an error already. Worse case we slide him over to left field but that bat isn't going back to the minors again. We've got ourselves a pennant race!
