    This is going to be better than The Rapture...but with the same ending.

    You all will be full of regret if instead of an "end" it is a revolution type of thing and you drank all your good beer.......just saying.

    Secret Santa?
    White Elephant?
    Airing of Grievances? Feats of Strength? Wait, I think we are a day or two off for that one.

    BTW, I have a 2011 and 2012 Darkness that I'd love to bring and crack -- is anyone else planning to bring either vintage? If someone is planning to bring 2012, BM me and I will bring 2011 instead

    I am extremely intrigued by this but am unsure I want to spend my final moments in fucking Chicago. Can we move this to like Jamaica or something?

    I'm attending a debaucherous orgy that day, but if I can step out for a few I'll see if I can make my way over.

    I think you were referenced in another thread...apparently I'm not from Chicago if I haven't drank with you, do you prly have to attend. I can't be ready for doomsday without being a real Chicagoan.

    Hahahahahaha. Love it.

    On a side note, the growler of CBS sadly did not come through for the tasting, but it looks like I will still have a growler of Exodus and Nemesis 2010 to bring to the party.

    Looks like I'm out now -- going to Mexico instead. I know how much you'll all miss me. See y'all at the next event...if the world does not end.

    Can I have our Exodus and Nemisis then? Won't do you any good when you can get BA Corona!

    I wouldn't mind a bottle of Sol Brava if you can find one. It's a malt liquor that has proved quite elusive.
     
  30. I've got a Cognac DL saved for this guy. Hopefully they don't cancel my day off.

    Thanks for organizing. I will unfortunately not be there. Driving to Detroit to be at Kuhnhenns.

    However, I believe that a more recent translation of the calendar by a Mayan expert as quoted by the Weekly World News was a bit more ambiguous about the date, only that it would be right about closing time on the third Friday night of the month... Suggest that if the world doesnt end you continue to have the event every month until it does..... or until our cellars are empty. See you in January

    For real? I'll let you know if I see it but I think the place in staying only has stuff like wild turkey and corona available

    In that case, i am canceling the flight to Mexico.

    So, I got an e-mail today from Bryan, but the link for what people are bringing to share and/or trade shows no posts. Is this the same info. everyone else has? Or am I missing something?

    TotallyHosed Savant (340) Illinois Jun 20, 2009

    You're not missing anything. People simply haven't posted anything yet. Speaking for myself, the event is not for another two weeks, so I don't plan to post until next week.
