    Why would one want to leave New Ulm before the party at night!

  2. Ben says:

    Not sure but all the buses do that. Kinda lame. Gotta hit Happy Joe’s Pizza after the fest.

    Anyone take the Herkimer bus? A bunch of my friends did and were less then happy about it. Apparently they couldn’t get the kegs working on the bus so they went and bought the bus goers a couple cases of Miller Lite. Because of it they were 45 minutes late in leaving so they arrived 45 into the fest.

    Then they wanted to leave at 2:45. Not sure about anyone else but if I’m paying $60 to ride a bus to Bockfest, I expect to be there on time and not to leave an hour and 45 minutes before it ends. On the way down my friend Brian started a chant to “Stay til 4:30!” and they agreed to let them stay til 3:30. I’d still be a bit upset. On the upside I ended up bringing a couple friends back with me so they could stay the whole time (and goto Happy Joe’s) so I had company on the drive back.

    Sounds like the first and last time any of them will be taking the bus down there. Sad, it seemed like a nice option.
