I just downloaded my photos from Memphis Brewfest and wow, are they ever horrible. Out of all the ones I took there are maybe 3 good ones. Lots of out of focus shots, shots with half of people’s heads cut off, shots with eyes closed, etc. That’s what happens when the point is to get as wasted as possible in 4 hours. Well, the organizers of the festival would probably argue that the point is to learn about beer, but I disagree.
I did get a good pic of one of my favorite tube top wearers, and she will probably make an appearance on the blog sometime in June. 36 days until Tube Top Month!
Which reminds me… if you’re going to Wine Race today and want to be on the blog, wear a tube top and find me… I’ll have the camera with me. (Note: This offer applies to women only… shouldn’t even have to say that, but Skippy reads my blog.)
The official start time of Wine Race is 1, but people start congregating on the street earlier… I’ll probably get down there about 12. I’ll mention once again that a Call-a-Cab from Wet Willie’s is a very good idea. (Unless you’re driving… then it’s a very BAD idea.) Events include (not sure about the order) a grape stomp, a parade, Queen of the Vine, and the wine relay. Most of the participants start drinking early in the morning so they’re properly lubricated by the time the competition starts. If you’ve never seen Wine Race, you really need to come down. It’s in Handy Park and on Beale east of Third.
Post-race, everyone (participants and spectators) disperse to nearby bars (Alfred’s in particular) and proceed to get even more wasted. Last weekend may have been the best festival weekend of the spring, but this weekend is surely the drunkest.
After that it’ll be time for Music Fest… I’m undecided about going this year. I’m going to wait until Wednesday, the last day to buy the 3-day pass, then decide. I have two requirements: No low below 60 degrees, and no day with a greater than 50% chance of rain. Looks like the temperatures will hold up, but the rain situation is iffy.
Saw on Twitter that a couple had sex in a hot tub on a Downtown rooftop last night. They apparently had quite an audience. I wonder which rooftop?
What the hell… I’ll go ahead and post the few good Brewfest pics I took… then I’m outta here… see you at Wine Race

Bicycle Bobby and Kelly. With wind gusts to 40 MPH, I was extremely disappointed that Kelly didn’t wear her skirt.
A rare pic of the Nuh-Uh Girl without food. From the look on her face, I’d guess she was sampling Turbo Dog.
