Well, Micah's suggestion prompts me to drop an idea I've been wondering
about, but haven't had the chance to think through yet. One great pastime
in Milwaukee is the tailgate party, an event often raised to an art form by
many of its participants. During the summer it's a fun way to start off an
evening at the ballpark, while offering a pleasant opportunity to be
outside (albeit surrounded by asphalt), enjoy bratwurst in beer sauce, and
of course sip some homebrew. And what visit to Milwaukee would be complete
without a chance to watch some famous Brewers?

So my idea is to have a tailgate party get-together one evening of the AHA
conference. The Brewers are in town the evenings of June 9th and 10th
against Oakland. Since the evening of the 10th is the opening reception of
the conference, I think the 9th would be better. Beer consumption is
allowed in the County Stadium parking lots (though the best you'll see
inside the park is Leinenkugel's).

Tailgate parties often continue long past the start of the game, so folks
who are not baseball fans should not be shy about coming - you don't have
to actually attend the game to enjoy yourself. And of course many good
parties have enough momentum to resume right where they left off once the
game has ended...

Consider this a proposal I'm sending out to gauge interest in such an
event. If enough folks would enjoy this type of outing, I'd be happy to
head up an effort to put it together (I live in the Milwaukee area). Of
course, if most people would rather not meet at the ballgame, but still
want to meet somewhere else, I could probably help arrange that instead.

Let me know!
