I hope this is a success. It really isnt my cup of tea but to have an event like this on the river could be pretty exciting.

Just a reminder folks, the Bricktown Nationals are today through Sunday. In fact, I can hear them roaring through my downtown office window. They are expecting 75-100 thousand people.
