Downtown parties with Dixie Beer
The Going the Distance street party at US Bank Plaza gathered approximately 1000 people to drink beer, listen to funk music. Not everyone drank the beer. I decided against it on account that I would rather drink beer with people I know. I only saw one person I knew a little from work but the rest of the crowd were strangers. I wonder how many actually did help put up dikes or sandbag? You could never tell. Still the downtown was buzzing.
I expected more to turn out since the beer was free but alas not even Phil could be lured from his hovel to enjoy a brew.
The mercury dropped a bit but the music was good. A real good funk band with horns and stuff.
