    excited to be going back to Chicago/DLD this weekend. my wife and I are bringing these local beers to share. it's a little over the ounce limit but don't think it'll be an issue.

    Is it acceptable to go shirtless?

    I understand this isnt an option for 99% of the crowd but if it gets too hot and is sunny then I might get some sun to prep for a music fest

    And if it rains a little I might just wear swim trunks and skip the poncho since it'll be warm

    It depends. You a broad? If so, then by all means. If not, no.

    weather.gov changed theirs:

    Saturday
    A 30 percent chance of showers, mainly before 8am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 69. Northeast wind around 5 mph becoming north northwest in the afternoon.
    Saturday Night
    A 30 percent chance of showers after 2am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 56.

    69 and cloudy would be perfect

    I've seen some attractive women there in years past. Especially in '16, there was one girl wearing short shorts and flip flops. It was in the 40's and pissing down rain all day. Honestly I don't know what goes through peoples heads.

    My lineup for DLD:

    2012 Utopias
    2013 Utopias
    2017 Utopias
    2017 Black Tuesday

    If anyone wants to try some of my vintage Utopias or soft as baby shit Black Tuesday by comparison, I’ll be the one passed out either upright against the merch tent or completely inverted in a garbage can. Kind of a Where’s Waldo situation so if you find me, just help yourself!

    I've been weighing my options heavily. And due to some responsibilities on Sunday, it made more sense to deal w/ the shuttles and get home rather than stay in IN. So, I'll be doing something similar. I've done it numerous times in the past and each time it's a bit of an adventure (cabs, trains, buses). Although, the ability to reserve a shuttle spot takes a little pressure off of getting downtown to take the Reggie's bus (which I've done 2 times).

    Anyhow, if anyone's on the 11am bus, give a holler and we can pop a couple on board. I'm going to try to experience the mid to later part of the fest this year. Hoping that pays off to get to try a couple of variants.

    Bad idea, as only sealed containers are allowed in. You will be forced to chug it at the gate. :stuck_out_tongue:
