The 2023 edition of our recurring Milwaukee meetup rolled up with a skeleton of a schedule. Team Rhody began the festivities on Thursday at Lakefront Brewery. They discovered that Cookies and Cream Cheese Curds are a real thing, and surprisingly good.
One thing everyone was planning on was Germanfest on Friday. The Rhody faction arrived early, and kicked off the party. I arrived later, as night was falling alongside the barometer. The looming storm clouds deterred many, but Ricochetti are of sterner stuff. I up with @katiekoppleman, her friend Philip, @hankrhody , @mattbalzer , and the @therightnurse We chatted and sampled the German food and drink (especially drink) as a light rain began to fall, and distant lightning shut down the stages. Suddenly, the wind and rain massively picked up, with torrents of water blowing sideways like a shower or Milwaukee hurricane. We ended waiting until the storm died down, and again ended up leaving the fest when kicked out. Everything got soaking wet.
