Every year there are two things that I talk a lot about doing and then end up not doing. RAGBRAI and Lollapalooza. I would really love to cross one of those off my list this year. I really thought it was going to be RAGBRAI but as my summer calendar has filled up I've gone from thinking I'd do the whole thing, to the first half, to a couple days, to now I'll be surprised if I actually do any.
Lollapalooza put single-day tickets on sale last week. $80 to a pile of great days at a great venue (Grant Park) in a great city (Chicago). So this is me soliciting anyone who is up for a road trip. I've checked out the band lineups and I could be talked into going any of the three days. I think the middle day is the weakest but it has the best headliner (Beastie Boys) so I'm up for anything! I'll even drive, order tickets, be tour guide and arrange accomidations. Any takers?
