This past Saturday was the infamous Mifflin St. Block Party here in Madison. The weather forecasted rain and thunderstorms, but it turned out to be a warm sunny-ish day, which encouraged more people to come out and go crazy.
Aaron and one of his co-workers.
Aaron and I had to check it out because we live a couple blocks away. We heard the party was sponsored this year, so beer would be available to purchase. Most people definitely brought their own beverages, but since I have been conditioned by Chicago street fairs, we were ok paying $3 for PBR.
Not my beer of choice... but I'm just happy its sunny out.
But this was not, by any means, a street fair. It was just a ton of supremely drunk people have a good time. There was a band playing in the middle of the street and we danced a little bit, but mostly we engaged in high-quality people watching.
Here is a video so you can get a feel for the atmosphere. WARNING: Not safe for work and not safe for kids (no nudity, just swear words).
