    For my 767th post, I just wanted to share my juvenile experiences with you all... my freind and I decided to attempt to re-live our high-school days by going to the Sammy Hagar/David Lee Roth show last month.
    Well, there was a 15ft beer bong in the parking lot... my friend and I just had to see if we could still party like idiots and try it. [​IMG]
    Heres my attempt:
    Here I am getting mentally prepared for the feat. (yes, that is a bootleg Van Halen shirt my friend dug out of his attic.. circa 1982, I believe. It didn't survive the show, sadly.)
    Here I am sizing up my opponent. I only put 36 oz of beer in it. The guy who owned the bong says it can hold about a gallon "but you don't want to do that" he said with a look in his eye as if he was reliving a bad experience.
    A word about the bong, it was 15ft tall. The beer is hand pumped up to the top via a pressurized insecticide tank (only used for beer, they assured me). With a gas nozzle on the end (only used for beer, they assured me).
    Here I am getting my game face on.
    Here I am taking it like a champ... well almost. I'm sad to admit I came up about a half a beer short... mostly due to downing a 7 inch italian special sub prior to my attempt.... I thought I was going to explode.
    Okay.. time to act like a grown up again and get back to work.

    Congrats on doing the bong. A skill I never mastered.

    BTW: I'm coming up to Milwaukee for Summerfest. It's my first time there; any suggestions of what to do and where to go.

    Dave Beebe, depends on what you like!! I myself could walk around for 12 hours, drink beer, and people watch and I'd be a happy guy. There are ALL walks of life at Summerfest and the people watching is second-to-none.

    Saturday night was the Boogie Men followed by the B-52's. Awesome!!

    The best night coming up in my opinion is Friday, July 5th. I'll be starting off with Pork and the Havana Ducks at noon, Dread Zeppelin at 5:30, and finish off with Ted Nugent 10:00 .

    If you get to Milwaukee early, just north of Summerfest there is a little Gyro joint that has the best Gyros in town. It's called Oakland Gyros and it's on the corner of Oakland and Locust.

    Enjoy!!

    That's funny as Hell! [​IMG] I've never seen a beer bong that big before. I don't think there's any way I'd survive that.
