Sat June 7 at 5:00 PM, Henry W. Maier Festival Park
200 North Harbor Drive, Milwaukee, WI, USA (Map & Directions)
Hey, Wisconsinites! Our state has most righteously entered the age of marriage equality today! We should celebrate with a MeFi meetup. Would you like to join me and desjardins at Milwaukee Pridefest for this last-minute gathering? Of course you would! Details under the fold.
OMG y'all, our last meetup was A YEAR AGO. Where does time go?! Let's rectify this grievous error by toasting to marriage equality in Wisconsin in true City of Festivals style: on the lakefront, at Pridefest, on a beautiful spring-summer day. We can take a shuttle or carpool and try to park at the grounds or skip there merrily from somewhere downtown or meet at the Main Gate.

We're looking to head over to the festival grounds around 5PM. Libations and comestibles will abound. Maybe we can go bounce to Big Freedia. Tickets are $16, which I will happily front you if you're broke but still want to attend.

C'mon, let's celebrate!

We had so much fun that I had to spend most of Sunday recovering. I feel so old.

Even though no one else ended up being able to join us, I feel like our party of two was its own self-contained meetup. We probably had enough fun for 10 MeFites or more. Drag kings! Big Freedia! Cocktails!(!!!)

*sleeps forever*

Awwww...I was out of town (went to MPLS to see Stephanie Miller's Sexy Liberal Show since I was busy for her recent Madison and Chicago ones). Otherwise it would have been fun to celebrate with folks!
