When we last left off, we were heading down to Harborfest for the first evening of fun! We walked over to the shuttle parking lot, which was a short 5-10 minute walk. The pictures below pretty much follow along with the play by play. We went by one of the 2 main fraternity houses we used to go to, Delta Kappa Kappa, better known as DK which is almost right on campus. We saw a few brothers hanging out in an upper floor window, but nothing major going on when we walked by.

Upon arriving at the main stage area, Frostbit Blue, one of our favorite bands from Oswego, was setting up and about to start and we spotted a Kid Rock lookalike! He was obviously dressed/looked that way on purpose, but honestly the only way you'd know it wasn't really him was to see his eyes behind his sunglasses. I walked by him close enough to see behind the glasses and could tell it wasn't REALLY him, but sure does a great job pretending!

One weird thing was the beer tent. You could not bring in beer to the beer tent and could not bring out beer from the beer tent. I get that to a point, but if you were not in the beer tent area you could bring in all the beer/wine/liquor you wanted in coolers/bags, etc. and that was completely fine. So why could you not bring beer out of the beer tent if everyone outside the beer tent had beer already?! That was a bit weird and annoying...we wanted to go closer to the bands and walk around without being restricted to the beer tent and eventually asked them not to open the beer and snuck a beer or two out in our pockets, but 1 time Tim got busted and so did a friend of ours and they were told they had to get back in the beer tent and drink the beer there. Heh, seems really odd and annoying to me, but really not big deal, was just strange.

We hung with them during most of the time Barenaked Ladies were playing and then I went up front for the last 2-3 songs and they were just as I remember them minus the main singer. But they didn't seem much different at all, same fun guys and great tunes!

We then wandered over to the sub shop. That place is an absolute gold mine, there were no less than 25-30 really drunk people in there. You order, pay and then they just call out the sub type you ordered. You'd thing they'd take a name or something, but it pretty much works out fine. The wait was at least 15 minutes, maybe closer to 20, but it was soooooo worth it. It tasted amazing. Should have gotten the 14" instead of the 7", but too late at that point. Yummy goodness! It's the whole combo for me, the fresh bread, the hamburger meat and the gooey cheese. Tim got his loaded up.
