So you think you’ve done it all at Summerfest? You’ve lost count how many times you’ve been there? If there was a “Summerfest OG Club” you’d be in it? Maybe even the club president? At least the Vice President?

Well here are 10 things that anyone who claims to be a die-hard Big Gig fan knows about.

  1. You know what “Meet me at the fountain” means.

  2. You have stacked empty beer cups and used them as a tall, single drinking vessel.

  4. You have participated in a drum circle.
  5. You know bartenders cannot fill your cup beyond “the line” so you don’t nag them to do so.
  6. You are a woman who has used the men’s bathroom to avoid long lines (or if you are a man you’ve seen a woman do this).

  7. You have taken a break on the rocks (but certainly never done anything illegal while there).

  8. You know the name of the original restaurant that serves eggplant strips.

  9. You have taken the skyglider simply to avoid the massive crowds on the grounds or because you’re too drunk, lazy or tired.

  10. You know what it feels like to have your toes floating in beer after it’s spilled in your shoes.
