Welcome to the Brew Hoop Night Shift. Every evening at 9:00pm (central time), this all-purpose thread goes up, and the comments section is where it’s going down. What Bucks news did we not cover? What topics do you want to break down further? Or is there something non-Bucks that you want to bounce off of one another? Even something non-basketball? This is the place.

Tonight’s (off) topic: IKEA Opens in Oak Creek
More than 900 started lining up at 5 a.m. Wednesday for the grand opening of the new Ikea store in Oak Creek. See more photos: https://t.co/kIbXlf8WyC pic.twitter.com/VzMMkLerJ2— Journal Sentinel (@journalsentinel) May 16, 2018
Yeah baby, I cannot wait to get my hands on some build-it-yourself furniture. It has been cool to see the lot that IKEA sits on go from open grassland next the 94, to one of the biggest retail chains in the world. Unfortunately for me, I frequent the Woodman’s off Drexel and that traffic will probably be a nightmare for the next month.
In fact, at around 7:30 PM tonight I stopped at that Woodman’s to pick up a custom six pack as a birthday gift for my brother, and the IKEA parking lot was completely full from what I could tell from the freeway. Those IKEA workers deserve a raise after today and what they’ll deal with this upcoming two weekends.
