Have been looking at tickets on Stubhub and can't believe you can get Bucks/Pacers tickets for $4... Crazy cheap, I can't even buy a sandwich at the deli here for that. I found some sweet court side tickets for about $114 which I will definitely be splashing out for. I'll be paying about the same for an upper bowl seat at a Knicks or Lakers game so definitely willing to pay it for the chance to witness some electric long 2's up close.

I've taken Dallas off my list too and changed it to Austin which should be awesome. Going to the Lakers / Mavs season opener, Bulls / Celtics in Boston, Nets / Blazers and a bunch of other games that should be great. Also really looking forward to the Giants and Packers game in NY

Leaving Chicago tomorrow morning with my friend and driving to Milwaukee! Can't wait for Bucks /Pacers on Wednesday, got tickets 2 rows back from court side. :)

Anyone have any good restaurants or bars around that we need to check out when we're there? Leave on Friday morning, will there be any good nights to go out while we're there that will be semi busy?

I would hit up AJ Bombers for a burger before the game, it is within walking distance and delicious.

After the game met up with Dan and Big Steve from Sector 7 and went to Scooters and Brothers. Got real drunk then hung outside Arts at about 2am eating delicious Ian's Pizza, good night :)

It's a shame there wasn't more of the board out but was cool to chat with Dan over some drinks. I think we are going out tonight to Buckheads if anyone is keen, last night in Milwaukee!

Sounds like you did it wrong. Why were you hanging out OUTSIDE of Art's of pizza?

You should have been eating that pizza off of a herpe infested vagina, IMO. That's how we do it in Milwaukee.

Game was awesome too, seats were great and bought heaps of Bucks crap from the store to take home. I got interviewed for Bucks.com too which should be up in a few days. Was only an embarrassing 10 second thing but had to smash down a few drinks to get the courage up for it haha

Some of the girls were finishing their shifts while we were eating and even drunk at 2am, they were absolute rubbish, no idea why anyone would pay to see that haha. Some guy got violently thrown out twice while we were standing there, I imagine that was Twirl yeah?

Yeah, two squad cars actually roared up after getting called about that guy. Not sure exactly what he did, but he was gone by the time they got there. Other than in TV and movies, I had never seen someone actually get physically flung out of a place like that. I mean, it reminded me of Fresh Prince of Bel Air, when Uncle Phil would throw Jazz out the front door and we would go flying quite far.

Also, one of the girls from Arts tried to get us to go home with her. At first I was perplexed a bit, considering she was just one girl and there were 4 of us guys... but then I remembered she was a performer at Art's, so perhaps that kind of thing was exactly what she was hoping for...

We declined :)

Another amusing part of the night occurred when 2 girls convinced us to leave Brothers (was definitely after midnight) and follow them over to Bar Louie. We finished our drinks and headed over there to meet them, but they were not among the 8 people in Bar Louie. So we just went to Scooters, where we were joined by a random girl that was very entertaining and extremely wasted.

I was going to tell her that I was also from Australia (like Garbs and his friend) but that I was a theater actor "back home" and I was practicing my American accent for an upcoming role. She was just to wasted to even appreciate that joke though, so I'll try that tonight at Buckhead instead ;)

She kept calling Tall Steve (from Sector 7) "Long Steve" which had me laughing quite a few times :lol:

Hahaha awesome... That's right I told her to ask him why his name is "Long Steve" so that's how she referred to him for the rest of the night. Somehow she has my number Dan and that's not cool :(

I swear it was NOT me who gave it to her. I'm guessing the person who gave it to her is the same person who traveled here with you from Australia ;)

Milwaukee's strip club situation is an utter joke. Our best clubs (one of which is great) are on the outskirts of town. Instead, visitors to our fair city are forced into ghetto joints like Arts and Solid Gold. Milwaukee is a weird city like that. We also built our huge casino in an industrial area.

Garbs have you seen the river and the lake yet? These would have been top of the list surely?

Myself and a couple friends took Garbs to the casino after bar close. Kind of a sad place at that time of night on a weeknight, so it was kind of a downer. It didn't occur to me it would be like that. So we were there for 15 minutes at most. Good news is that in the span of just over 5 minutes, Garbs proceeded to first use $100 and then $40 more to play roulette. I convinced him to walk away when he hit and won $216 (so up $76). Pretty productive 15 minute casino visit :)
