Flugtag or Bust!!!

Ok... so we went to the Red Bull Flugtag event on Saturday. I was really looking forward to this. I have seen the commercials and always thought it was be an interesting/fun spectacle.

I saw on the news that the gates opened at 11am... first flight at 1pm...and that they expected 55,000 people to attend... I didnt buy that... BUT... DAMN...was I wrong...

We busted up in there right around 1pm and couldnt even see the launch stage from Riverfront Park... we finally decided to cross the river and view the event from the Titans stadium area... We could actually see from there but after about 5 different launches that immediately nosedived straight into the nasty Cumberland River...we left. It was way too hot and the lines just to get a bottle of water were too long.

So... anyway...Flugtag would be fun... but it was way too crowded for us...

On a more exciting note.... IM FRICKING GOING TO SEE BERNADETTE PETERS TONIGHT!!!!

She's a living Broadway legend and is performing with the Nashville Chamber Orchestra at the Symphony Center. I came really close to buying tickets...but didnt--b/c Hal is a party pooper and wasnt as interested as me--...

Anyway, I entered a contest to win tix... and....I WON!!!! So the event is tonight.... and I'm in gay, Broadway heaven...

I'll update you on the show later... sorry I dont have any Flugtag pics... we took the camera but were way too miserable with the heat and crowd to care about it though.
