Official Short's 9th Anniversary Bash aka the only thread not about FFF or Dark Lord thread

  1. Definetly going with a group, but we need a spot to throw down some sleeping bags. Any problems with sleeping in the parking lot or is there a park nearby???
     
  2. I would definitely not sleep in a parking lot. I don't know if you've ever been to Bellaire but the county jail is right down the street from "downtown"--I'm sure there will be cops patrolling the area. I would check local campgrounds or chip in and get a hotel room.

  3. I see Craven park just East of town, should only be a one mile walk.

    Lake Bellaire is right there too, in case you wanna recreate your avatar.

    Make sure you can camp there. Cops are cool in the area, but they are especially attentive that night. We got pulled over walking to our hotel last year because we were too loud (and rightfully so as we were singing Flogging Molly the whole way).

    police...sigh
     
  7. Walking is doing the right thing, if they are going to give us shit we could probably have them call us a cab to the park. Camping is only $10 there.

    I believe it is called Craven Park. I showed up there once after 2am leaving shorts. Everyone was asleep. We just setup hammocks and left at 6am.
     
  12. See my post #83? It's damn near exactly a mile away. Not too far to walk for me, but closer would be cool.
     
  13. Walking is definitely the way to go--I'm pretty sure there are no cab companies in Bellaire.

    As my post says, we were too loud (due to drinking all day at the Anniversary bash). Someone called the cops on us, but no biggie, they were cool and just said keep the singing quieter.
     
  16. Less than a week away....I sense my liver is a bit nervous.
     
  17. I was practicing!!!

    Do you know how this is going to work? Do we pay a one time fee to sample what we want, or is it going to be pay as you go?

  22. Well I guess that would be CBC...so maybe, Canadian Breakfast S'more Stout...or Canadian Breakfast Sustenance!

    Dammit! I'm in Traverse City friday night Jim.
    Saturday morning bottle share or just stay in TC on Friday night :)

    I'm detoxing all week in preparation. We'll see how long that lasts.
     
  27. Maybe a Friday BA meet up at Filling Station or Right Brain?

    if anyone doesn't have a place yet I will shamelessly plug my parent's place in the next town over (Central Lake), Cedars Resort. sleeps up to 4 people per cabin, total of 5 cabins (well or 3, some might still be shut down from winter still). Plenty of room for bottle shares. Plus right on a lake.

    I hope you mean gourmet coffee when you say sharing in line. I suspect in the small town of Bellaire the local police would not be amused by a bottle share on the street.

    Assuming it's the same as the past 7 years it's pay as you go.

    So where is everyone staying? I'm at the Park Place downtown. I'm taking the day off work to make the brewery rounds starting in the afternoon.

    Is this going to be the normal "family friendly" pub during the day? I am up at my family farm and there is no telling who might come with me at this point.
