    Vanilla Margins = crossing our fingers for a band invite. We've started writing offensive lyrics just in case.

    There are already 15 people standing outside of 3 Floyd's right now offering $200 for a bottle of Handjee.

    Or maybe they just want a handjee. I don't even know.

    Anyone w/ any experience with any of the hotels in Hammond, namely the Comfort Inn, Courtyard, or Hampton Inn?

    Looks like those are the closest ones w/ availability during that weekend. (at least that don't have the rooms blocked off at the moment)

    I stayed at the Hampton in Hammond last year. Nothing bad to say about it. Full of beer geeks, breakfast buffet in the morning (Likely what saved me at DLD last year), and decent bottle share the night before.

    Hey, let’s try to keep this thread respectful, rational, and logistics-focused this year.

    :hugging:

    But seriously, how many pages was the high-water mark from last year?

    Something like 215 or there abouts. All but about a page and a half were entirely useless (but quite entertaining!)

    May as well as edit the thread title to Dark Lord Day ∞ at this point. Those who have read DLD threads of the past are condemned to read the same posts again...and again...and again.... :wink:

    Any word on variants this year? My guesses:

    Hanjee Whiz - bacon cheese whiz infused

    [insert infected vanilla joke here] - lacto/lactobacillus/Vanilla

    Joan of Arc / French Heroinne - Bordeaux Barrel-aged

    Mueller’s Tears - BA DLD on peaches

    Dragon Abortion - DLD / charro II blend

    Kim Jong Uno! - vaguely irradiated Kimchi (too soon?)
