Who's going to Alpine Valley August 23, 2014

Post by southofdisorder07 »

Another year, another quest:-) Someone had to start the discussion, brought to you from sunny Cabo San Lucas.

Bets are on for late August in beautiful Alpine Valley! Hopefully we get a bit more interest this year!!!

I really think the late announcement/confirmations have hurt attendance at Alpine.. last 2 years have been announced in May, and both years there were lawn and reserved seats available right up until the day of show. Any chance we'll get an earlier confirmation this year?

Thanks for the heads up Steve!

Got reservations made for Comfort Suites in Lake Geneva the weekend of Aug. 23.

Looking forward to hanging at Hemingway's for all the Friday night/Saturday pre show fun that weekend :wench:

Be sure to bring some warm weather back from Cabo! 8)

Go to Hemingway's in Lake Geneva. Steve throws an awesome party every year all weekend long with a pig roast Friday night, live music, and drink specials all weekend long. That's where I will be....can't wait!!
I am sure more details will be coming soon since now we have a Jimmy date. :-) stay tuned!

This date is perfect for us. Room booked in New Berlin. Airfare is reasonable. This venue is on our bucket list.

I was so disappointed that Two Seasons Bowl closed! I did their party a few years ago and it was epic fun. Maybe they'll still throw the party? I was planning on going this year, but alas, no more. I'll have to check out Hemingway's for sure. Now it's just a matter of finding a bus that'll bring me there and back.

So far, sounds like Hemingways will be the big party this year....and it's usually a great party. We'll see who else steps up.

Not quite ready to bring her to Alpine. Getting close. She has been to Johnny Russler shows...and Johnny has played with Jimmy in the past...does that count?

Good luck tomorrow, Alpiner's! :D

I was lucky and snagged four really sweet pavilion seats the day they went on sale last year.

Fingers crossed!
