Mugshot Monday - “Official Substitute Riot Fest Chicago Skyline” coffee mug with Airport Potbelly Mocha
My wife Cindy and I are at the airport heading back to Minneapolis after 3 awesome days of live music at Riot Fest in Chicago.
Unfortunately, they don’t sell Riot Fest coffee mugs — just t-shirts and can koozies — which is too bad. Us “old-school punk rockers” need that coffee on a Monday after a 3 day music festival!
So this Chicago skyline mug I found at will suffice as a substitute.
We saw a ton of great shows, but the highlight of the festival has to be seeing The Cure. This band is amazing live and they played for 2hrs+ straight! I wouldn’t have thought to see them if my wife wasn’t such a huge fan, but I’m so glad I did. Robert Smith sounded EXACTLY the same and the performance had a lot of energy. They’ve been playing since freaking 1978, and that’s pretty damn inspiring to me.
Hats off to all the bands that played Riot Fest and to all the people who made it possible!
But please! Please make us some coffee mugs next year!
