While driving back from my trip to Milwaukee with my bandmate Gary, I attempted to wrap my head around the festivities of the weekend. See, a lot happened in a very short time. My band and some fellow Chicago comedy musicians played a wild gig to some crazy train-hopping hobos. We hung out with a hot Russian bartender at a spy-themed restaurant. We sat all over Miller Park. We met a guy named Spider Mike. And of course, we did as the locals do in Milwaukee: We drank lots of beer with Brewers fans. But instead of some long blurry story about two immature man-children running around watching baseball, I made this....

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight
