    I'm the past, they haven't had porta potties available until the employees show up around 8 or 9 a.m. It sucks because there are 45 porta potties on the opposite side of the fence and people lined up for hours ahead of time.

    Anyway can we just start ignoring this guy, please? It doesn't matter what you say to him I think he's just copy/pasting his response. An automated hall-monitor-on-a-power-trip bot.

    Do I actually get to be the first to jinx it? Forecast is high of 53, low of 40, 20% chance of rain.

    Much like last year no need for insulated backpacks or coolers.

    I got E tickets and crap to do in the morning, I won't be showing until 2 or 3pm to witness the carnage. Hope some of you dudes are still around for some shares by then. I'll check the outside tents first with some shit I'll bring.

    8 days.... i'm running a cellar "draft" this week to see which bottles will make it (ok, it will just be me alone in my basement, but i will think hard about it...)

    Guys this is serious (not like email-miester over there), we need to discuss something...

    Can we all be done wearing pretzel necklaces? I mean, i guess if it's your thing that's fine, but seems like a lot of work for something that already comes ready-to-go in a bag? Plus you get crumbs on your shirt, and it's weird if it looks like your 5 yr old made you a necklace so that now matter how drunk you get you don't lose your snack...;)

    I really think we need to settle this on-line, it makes about as much sense as some of the other "concerns" we have here.

    also: anyone dressing up as a monk?

    Per FFF:
    "At least one shrunken head or pentagram medallion is required in order for the pretzels necklace to be offset by metal. This excludes blood-covered pretzels, as they are already metal."

    Thought i posted this before, not sure what happened to it:

    yeah, i think that's ok... on the list of "acceptability" i'll put it above Fanny packs and man-purses, but below camelbaks and good- 'ole backpacks. So you're in, but barely, i'd rub a little dirt on it to be safe.

    - sausage necklaces are great.... it's going to be a sausage fest anyway, you might as well string 'em up in and around your mouth

    - First person to find me with a pretzel necklace containing a shrunken head gets a bottle of Pliny FO FREE...

    I know vienna sausages won't satisfy you perhaps I'll wear a kielbasa necklace to really get you drooling...for kielbasa that is.

    I just added popcorn to my list of stuff to bring. I'll have it out at 8am, watching near the front of the line when someone blatantly tries to cut like an asshole and flaunts an email with riveting info such as "I don't know what time the line starts."

    Should be great.

    The Hampton Inn in Munster has the main bottle share and is the closest to the brewery. It sold out a while ago but it may me worth calling about a room? I'm not sure about other hotels in the area but I know the one in Merrillville had open rooms last year...

    Actually, as of an hour or two ago, the Hampton does have a room available with a king bed for $209 a night.

    I guess now is an appropriate time to announce my plan for DLD - a Chipotle Burrito necklace. I'll have all the different kinds of meat (chicken, barbacoa, carnitas, and steak) with guacamole on each one.

    I don't want to get too drunk and look like a fool.

    No word on bottle allocations yet, right? I shouldn't be surprised that we've got a week to go and I haven't received my tickets, there's no indication of how many regular bottles we can get, and no indication of what the BA variants will be outside of speculative confirmation on Bourbon and Port.
