Last month, Summerfest and a very busy Klement's came together to announce the Big Gig's newest grounds stage: the Klement's Sausage and Beer Garden, a backyard-designed space on the festival's north end surrounded by picnic tables, a seated lounge area and barbecue grills. As for the music, the stated goal was acoustic tunes – with an emphasis on local performers.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
