Cheeseburger in Caseville 2006: Video Diary

Friday, August 11 2006
    2:00 PM:  Show up at Joe’s.  Pick up Greg.
    3:30 PM:  Mike is so eager to get out of his office he said his chair is probably still spinning.
    5:30 PM:  Get to Bad Axe.  Check into our room.  Tequila shots.  Head over to Caseville at 7:40 PM.
    8:15 PM:  Buy $5 button at amphitheater for admission to all shows.  Walk around town.  Have dinner and drinks at Riverside Roadhouse.
    12:30 AM:  Back at our room in Bad Axe.  More tequila shots.  Watch TV and video files off Mickey’s laptop.
    2:30 AM:  Bedtime.
    4:30 AM:  Mickey finally falls asleep, tiring of using audiobooks to drown out Schmoe’s snoring

    Morning:  Schmoe, Mike, and Greg avail themselves of the continental breakfast as well as the swimming pool and hot tub.
    11:40 AM:  In an unusually quiet room, Mickey finally wakes up.
    12:30 PM:  Head back to Caseville. 
    1:00 PM:  Go to beach first.  Buy $6 sunglasses.  Find out we could’ve gotten into amphitheater free from the beach.
    Afternoon:  Mike had seen sign for gumbo so we walk to Farm Restaurant to buy some.  Lines to order and to pick-up food are confused and wait is long.  No alcohol either.
    Later: We walk to Elizabeth Port Grill for Bourbon Burger and Coronas.  Next door, in the park, the Lost Shakers are playing.  Go across the street to buy “Mike’s Hard Mike-aritas.”
    Later still:  Walk several blocks to official store.  Buy shirts and souvenirs.  Interview Marie who invites us to look for Steve by the pink bus at tonight’s concert.
    Sunset:  Go back to beach, worried lots might be locked-up before long.  Park on the street, stop at party store, return to amphitheater for Air Margaritaville. 
    Evening:  Sound problems cut first set short.  Manage to videotape both rounds of cheeseburger eating contest (but footage is too dark to be useable).  Finally find Steve during Ai Margaritaville’s second set and record interview.  See a shooting star but Mickey misses it.
    Night:  Stuck on the sidewalk as bars are at capacity.  Find out about Hersel’s and drive a few miles out of town to find it.  Pay $3 cover, quickly buy Coronas, and stand near the dance floor watching the young girls act slutty.  DJ clears dance floor by playing “Come Monday”...and even ruins it for us older folks by trying to sing along without benefit of knowing the words.
    Late night:  Head back to Bad Axe.  Mike makes margaritas.  Mickey determinedly stands out in parking lot in bare feet until he can see his own shooting star.
