Concord Music Hall - mewithoutYou

Was able to see my favorite band mewithoutYou again January 2020 at Concord Music Hall in Chicago, IL during Thrice’s 15 year anniversary tour for the album “Vheissu”. Venue has a no camera policy so everything was taken in potato vision from my iPhone 8. Best photo was before the show during sound checks when … Read more mewithoutYou @ Concord Music Hall

Safari Shoot @ West Allis Bowmen

Safari Shoot @ West Allis Bowmen - Tiger target

My friend Erin twisted my arm into shooting the Safari Shoot at West Allis Bowmen and I’m glad she did. This is a great event for archers of all ages with some extremely unique and fun targets. How unique, you ask? See exhibit A: the hippo-bear-dog-man-bear-pig? Lots of more realistic animal targets but maybe one … Read more Safari Shoot @ West Allis Bowmen

2019 Root River Paddle Challenge

2019 Root River Paddle Challenge

Picked up a kayak this year to push further into my Wisconsin waterfall search.  For my inaugural paddle I had some friends convince me to join the Root River Paddle Challenge.  Thanks to high water levels this was a pretty easy 6.5 mile float even for a noob like me.  Only took video using my … Read more 2019 Root River Paddle Challenge

mewithoutYou @ The House Cafe

The House Cafe in Dekalb, Illinois

Scored tickets to see one of my favorite bands down at The House Cafe in Dekalb, Illinois. Teddy Roberts and The Mouths were the opening act.  Kind of a bluegrass/country vibe. Tigers Jaw closed the show.  They are good but not quite my style (emo/pop punk). Right in the middle was mewithoutYou.  Sorry my photos … Read more mewithoutYou @ The House Cafe

Foo Fighters @ Fiserv Forum

Foo Fighters - Concrete and Gold Tour

Friends of mine scored tickets for the Foo Fighters latest Concrete and Gold tour in Milwaukee at the new Fiserv Forum.  Gotta say I didn’t expect to see such an impressive show – nearly 3 hours long and one of the best light displays I’ve ever seen.  Setlist can be seen here. Don’t forget to … Read more Foo Fighters @ Fiserv Forum

Packers vs. Bears @ Lambeau Field

Lambeau Field - National Anthem

Lambeau Field.  The Frozen Tundra.  September 9th.  Packers 100th Season opener versus the Chicago football Bears.  Point the way Curly! “Not so fast!” says Coach Lombardi‘s stern gaze.  Made a stop at the Atrium & Packers Pro Shop for merch and had lunch at Kroll’s West (possibly the best cheese curds in Wisconsin?). Stopped at … Read more Packers vs. Bears @ Lambeau Field

Fleet Foxes @ Chicago Theatre

Fleet Foxes @ Chicago Theatre

Got lucky and scored tickets months ago to see Fleet Foxes at the Chicago Theatre.  First balcony booth seats with a table and waiter service thanks to an awesome pre-sale deal. Opening band Nap Eyes was OK if nothing else.  Super chill sleepy-time music.  Guess it’s not just a clever name? Fleet Foxes went on around … Read more Fleet Foxes @ Chicago Theatre

Blackhawks vs Predators @ United Center

Thanks to my cousin Bryce who was able to get a few tickets to a Hawks game, we had a blast! Hawks won 4-1 and Kane’s point streak at the time was up to 23 games.  Check this page for more details and recap.   Some videos:   Lat = 41.8806725 , Long = -87.6740799 … Read more Blackhawks vs Predators @ United Center

Lambeau Field Tour

Visited the historic Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI with my cousin Bryce, Uncle Bob, and Aunt Theresa.  Apparently they don’t let you walk on the grass, but we did get within inches of doing so – very cool considering players like Roders, Favre, White, Starr, Nitschke, etc. all played the game.  We also visited … Read more Lambeau Field Tour

Wolves vs Admirals @ Allstate Arena

Caught a Wolves/Admirals game at the Allstate Arena in Chicago that our manager at work put together (thanks Paul!).  Great seats right on the glass behind the Wolves bench.  Wolves won in OT but beer was relatively cheap I think.  See the game recap here. Lat = 42.0050850 , Long = -87.8875351 — Show at … Read more Wolves vs Admirals @ Allstate Arena
