Each week, we pick four thematically linked Missed Connections from the weekend to compete in a battle of opinion. First prize is a date with the missed connection. Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you’re fired. (We have no power to actually award any of these prizes. Leave your ranking in the comments.)
It’s no surprise that the “World’s Largest Music Festival” should produce an alarmingly high number of Missed Connections. After all, is there any better place to pine for sweaty strangers than the asphalt Gomorrah that is Henry Maier Festival Park? With the Big Gig finally behind us, we round up a small sampling of Summerfest-related calls to love.
Iron Maiden - m4w (summerfest)
You sure didn’t look like you wanted to be there, and your bf or husband clearly couldn’t figure that out. Is the rest of your relationship so enjoyable too? If you’re looking for something else, maybe someone a bit more understanding? Drop me a line and tell me what you were wearing at the show.
hot black chick in the black nissan summerfest - m4w (miller parkway)
you were the hot black chick driving the black nissan with her gf at Mc Donalds looking for summerfest tickets. are you single?
Summerfest July 3rd Fireworks On The Rocks - m4w - 24 (Summerfest)
You had white shorts on looking sexy had a good conversation you also had a kid. I didn’t ask for your number. I was with my friend you where with yours. I shared my flask with you. If your interested get back at me.
summerfest security at sublime - w4m - 23 (front row)
I haven’t done anything like this before, and im sure nothing will come of it. But I was at summerfest Sunday night, front row at sublime, and my friend got your attention for me. I was wearing a brown polka dot halter top. I wanted to wait till the end of the show to try and get your number, but my friend got sick. You helped lift me over the gate to get to my friend. Uhhhh. That is all!
