“We just wanted to check it out and be outside on a nice evening. See something new. It’s nice that Lawrence is doing something different.”

“It was on my way home. I drive this way every day and the street was blocked off. I’m a big KU fan, so I thought I’d stop by.”

“I’m a KU student so I knew it was going on, and I work on this block. My co-worker came downtown and wanted me to come out.”

“It’s free, and I thought I might see some people I know. I wanted to see some of the bands and have a good time.”

I work downtown and the first I knew something was going on was seeing a stage on 8th St when I left work on Friday.

Actually, I was just coming downtown to study for my 1st module finals. Guess that didn't work out too well, huh?

We should rename 8th street, Montmontre street because so many people were drawn there.

I have to admit, it was a festive evening; a lunatic with a machete would have had a field day. Good thing that didn't happen.

s_s, I think I OMB & I heard what you said. (It's all so much clearer when you're holding your tongue)
