The Travail Lakeside Party is coming and there will be... potato salad tacos?

The Travail Lakeside party: All kinds of fun.

The Travail Lakeside party: All kinds of fun.

Music, food, beer, games, water! Pretty ladies and cute boys. It's summer, and the Travalians like to party in summer. They say their annual warm-weather bash started as a BBQ in their parking lot, but they've moved it into the park for maximum party sprawl. 

The details: 

Food by Travail, beer by local crafters including Fair State, Surly, Fulton, Indeed, Sweetland Orchard, Bauhaus, and F-town brewing.

Games include a nine-hole inflatable golf course, dunk tank, and "off with your head." There will be live music by the Roe Family Singers, Sarah White, Bad Bad Hats, and Viva Knievel.

Potato Salad Taco with smoked bbq pork shoulder, potato salad, and chives
