IM Intern Has First Carb Day, Hilarity Ensues
Editor’s Note: We must be sadists. IM intern Myrydd Wells had never been to a Carb Day concert. So today, without mercy, we sent her—alone—to the Lynyrd Skynyrd concert at IMS. When we cautioned that it might get rowdy, and asked if she was sure she wanted to go, she reassured us. “I went to IU,” she said. “I’ve seen it all.” This is what she brought back.
Spectators beware: Carb Day is not for the faint of heart. Between dodging one’s way through swarms of the highly intoxicated, sitting in endless lines of traffic in an attempt to find parking, and, of course, sweating out all the water in one’s body in temperatures approaching 90 degrees, going out to the track can be a daunting task. But for race fans and party enthusiasts, all this trouble seems to be worth it.
