OK, so here's me. I met someone at the Bear
Dance this weekend and we hit it off. We made
plans to go out the following week. Unfortunately
I came down with a raging cold and had to
cancel. Now I know what you kids are thinking,
'Canceling a date on that day is rude!' Shut
your damn mouth, Judgey! I was waiting to see
if I felt better.
Now that summer is here, it's time to enjoy all
that this city has to offer. We eventually headed
over to Mayfest in Lincoln Square. It's a German
festival with polka bands, brats and lots of beer.
What better way to learn your date's tolerance
for alcohol and/or children! My date even won
me a stuffed animal at the midway. I named it
There is a different neighborhood festival almost
every weekend during the summer, so don't forget
about them. Midsommarfest in Andersonville
is right around the corner. Lincoln Square does
the same festival again in September, so don't
fret if you want to follow in my footsteps.
