Tailgating with a Vespa

Tailgating with a Vespa. Yes, it's possible.

On Sunday, our 1st wedding anniversary, we loaded up the Vespa and took it to Miller Park to tailgate before the Brewers game. Because the Vespa played a leading role in our wedding, we thought it was only appropriate. We made a stop at the grocery store; bought a disposable grill (which worked very well), 2 burgers, some brats, carrot sticks and dip, bread, a six pack of beer and a lighter. We grabbed ketchup and mustard on our way out of the house. We strapped the grill on the back rack, the beer under the seat, and a grocery bag with the rest on the seat hook in the front. We got there and thought, 'we could probably bring two camp chairs and a small radio next time'. Parking for motocycles and scooters is located in front of Helfaer field. So if anyone else has a Vespa and has thought about's totally do-able.

And we even saw the mini racing sausages........


  1. Loved clicking back and seeing some of your lovely wedding photos! And, yep, tailgating on a Vespa looks AMAZING. :) P.S. If you didn't see my reply over on my blog re: Summerfest in the Third Ward---traffic is pretty bad, noise somehow not a problem at all. Can awesomely hear it faintly on the balcony/outside, but the apartments must have magical windows ha. :)
