Say "Cheese"

A few days ago, I volunteered to organize a Humzoo group outing to Milwaukee's Miller Park during the 2009 season. On Wednesday, tentative Major League Baseball schedules were released.

The Chicago Cubs only make two weekend trips to Milwaukee next season. Both of those weekends are very early in the season. In fact, the first is for the Brewers home opener on April 10-12. The next series is from May 8-10. That's all for the regular season. Of course they will meet in the National League Championship Series in October.

Here is what I need to know. Who is interested in going? How many seats would you need? Are you only interested in seeing a Cubs game? Tickets are generally plentiful for most Brewers/Pirates games. Sorry Betsy.

The Cubs series will be the most difficult to get, by far (especially the home opener... those will go in minutes). I'm all for going, but I'd love to host y'all anytime.

Bill, I'd go anytime/any game.. 2 tix. We could also host 4-6 people at our house should you be driving a long distance.


P.S. I'd encourage any of you to make a weekend out of it so we could catch a brewery tour and other Milwaukee traditions... summer is always better for that.

Yes, we want on a booze cruise last September. I'd highly recommend that for anyone. Even if you don't want beer, it's a nice lazy trip through Milwaukee.

Sounds like fun time. It would have to be the cubs though.
2 possibly 3 seats

Wow, that's an odd schedule that the Cubs won't be at Miller Park after May. Though I 0lik0e0 00h00o0w0 0y0ou000're


oops, my cat just walked across the keyboard. What I was trying to write is I like how you're already making predictions about the NLCS for NEXT year. Love it.

I would still come up if it weren't a Cubs game. Even if we could get tickets for the April Brewers/Cubs game, it's going to be freaking cold. For myself, the early May series is bad because that's right when finals are. Maybe JDI and K8 would be interested in a Cards/Brewers match? Anyway, I'm with Carrie that summer is better for...well...everything in my book. The booze cruise sounds awesome. I may skip the game and do that. :) Thanks for offering up accommodations Carrie. We would need 2 tickets, though my husband just told me he reserved the right to bail out. If he does, I'll bring my boyfriend instead.

LOL Sally!
I'm sure there's no law against bringing one of those stand-in blow up dolls ether for that extra seat.

Well, we could go all out and plan it during Summerfest which is usually the last week of June/first week of July. It's the world's largest outdoor music festival and lasts for about 11 days.

Also, the "booze cruise" that Bill mentioned is so much fun. If we get enough HumZoers, we can have to voat all to ourselves. You stop at 3 different breweries, get a tour and get tickets (or a pint glass) to taste the beers they have on tap. It's a total blast.

I realized that when i said I could host 4-6 people, that was for beds and couches. If you have a sleeping bag and don't mind the floor, you could tack on 8-10 more to that number. The more he merrier!

Bill, do you have a link to the tentative schedule your looking at?
Carrie   Thursday, September 18, 2008
Beer Cruise...yes
Live music....yes

I'm in! The mets would be fun as well. Or anyone....really I just want to see a sausage race and meet Bernie.

Here's the 2009 Brewers schedule:

Cool... thanks Bill.

Again, I'll go to any game, but just a couple ideas. The series against San Fran at the end of June would coincide with Summerfest and the series against Houston coincides with the WI State Fair. Just a thought.
