  1. Less than a month away to 4 Elf. Who's coming, and more importantly, who am I going to have to help (read: drag) back to the hotel?

    Last year it was the guy that was bragging about being the 1st one in line..... He was wearing the surly coat and was shit faced......
    Normally i would give someone a ride but i thought a # for a cab was a better idea so when he blew chucks it would not be in my car

    We're staying at a place within walking/stumbling distance through AirBnB that we booked at the end of June. I'll be bringing one of the few remaining bottles of 2010 BBPt5. Come find us!

  23. Oh no, please nuke this thread. This WAS my favorite event, but with this hype train not sure anymore.

    I just hope the A-hole line jumpers from chicago stay home this year, or DH does a better job of policing the situation.

    I am personally going to line jump you with 20 of my closest juggalo friends

    FACE!

    I didn't think line jumping was that big of a deal last year. Get your token, wait in line, give them your token, wait in line, buy beer.
     
  28. Well I may just have to wear my ICP shirt then.

    Considering they tried to cut in with me, and told me they were from Chicago, I think it is a valid statement.

    I feel like we actually need some concrete information before the hype train officially starts. Bottle limits? What beers available for sale? Tap list? Bottle sharing?

    Also, do I need to present my Illinois ID to cut in line? Who hosts the FIB portion of the line that allows cutting? I got BALLER STOUT to entice a good line cut, I know how FIB's love Baller Stout.

    I'm pretty sure Pasta organized the line cutting for the FIB's last year...I owe him a taint tap for that this year. I know you or your boyfriend Frank are reading this, so be aware and prepared my friend.

    I will be attending my first 4 Elf, possibly with 1 or 2 other Detroit area BA's in tow. No idea what time we're arriving Saturday morning, but hoping we don't have to get there too ridiculously early.

    There was actually a pretty insane amount of cutting last year... they were not checking tokens at all. Expect that to change this year. If DH doesn't regulate it better, don't be surprised if others in line take matters into their own hands.

    Lots of the Michigan BAs that go to releases regularly know each other and don't just let people cut, not even on KBS day when it was clear tons of people were line jumping. I wish I could say the same about all of the other groups that come in from out of state. It's not just the Chicago guys.
