Hot Town, Summer In The City

From theweeklybrew


It looks like we may get halfway decent weather for Summer In The City music fest after all. With the clouds looming over the last couple days I was starting to wonder. The forecastthough is calling for partly sunny with temps in the high 70’s to low 80’s this weekend.

I’m still not sure how I feel about summer in the city. I’ve never been a huge festival goer. Also, the more I look at it the more I wonder why they bill it as a music and wine festival. Sure they have something like 21+ wine vendors, but they also have a car show (at Riverfront Park), Texas Hold ’em tournament, sidewalk sales, and beer pong. Seriously, beer pong?? Sounds more like a carnival to me minus the rides (there will be some bouncy houses for the little ones). No fear though, I’m sure those will be listed as a feature in a couple years. Maybe it’ll look like 4th of July in Independence eventually 🙂

Mostly I want to go so I can spend a nice relaxing day listening to some music, maybe swing by the craft beer tent that Venti’s is helping put on. Really that’s all I see as highlights. Problem is I work Saturday and 2 out of 3 of my coworkers are both busy that day. The other just got done covering everyone’s shifts the last two days (except mine) and will be covering shifts for another one my coworkers till Wednesday plus doing their own. I feel almost mean just thinking about asking them to cover my shift Saturday.

For those going the festival, it is at the intersection of Liberty and Court. Entrance is $10 for Saturday, $7.50 for Sunday, and $15 for a 2 day pass. There is a free zone within the fest, but there are also three pavilions. These are the beer pavilion, the wine pavilion, and Hornitos Garden of Agave. Not sure if Hornitoswill be worth visiting though.
