    Ours was the same deal. I managed to snag all 4 tickets for our group, using mine and my friend's info, while they just sat wating in the queue the whole time. 2 group c and 2 group e. Excited, this is the 6th year in a row we'll be going.

    Got some Group E a couple of minutes ago. I will echo the sentiment that if you are just sitting around, keep hitting refresh and you might get in.

    I am expecting a booze-laden wasteland at that point of the day.

    I feel like the key is to do multiple ticket requests from multiple IP addresses and/or cellular connections.

    Got lucky somehow. Was in que for almost an hour for group A, hit back and was able to select best available. Would get "tickets not available". Hit back again which put me back at the same window, just refreshed so the verification code window would reset. Kept repeating until I got in.

    How big of bags do they allow in there? I mean you can't have rolling luggage can you? I am in STL and I want as much Zombie Dust as I can get.

    Also this is my first DLD, what bottles will they be selling besides the DLD? What are the purchase limits if any?

    Don't plan on bringing anything with wheels or luggage like you are heading to Europe for 2 weeks. Can probably get away with a backback with wheels and shoulder cooler but that is about it. If you are coming to STL bring up some Side Project and I am sure you can find one of us locals to stash a few cases for you.

    Also, if I remember correctly, last year, at least around mid day, there was no ZD to be had. Plus, they will have way better beers than ZD on that day to be had.

    Park close, buy and carry back to your car, and then re-enter and party.

    This will be my first year going. I don't have a stock of sought after beer, but don't want to show up empty handed for all the sharing I've been hearing about. Any suggestions on what I could pick up to bring?

    I got on the Etix page around 11:30 in case the darklordday website crashed (it did) from 12:00-12:08 I noticed nothing happening on my screen besides the original "tickets will go on sale at 12:00" message. I refreshed once and immediately was able to secure 2 group A tickets. I even messed up on the text cache but still was able to proceed without losing the tickets once i typed it in correctly. Last year tickets were a lot harder to get from what I am noticing. Either way, I am pumped for my 3rd trip to DLD!

    There's a chance I may have one extra group C ticket. Should know in a day or so if I do for sure. If needed shoot me a PM and we can work something out.

    With this being my first time, what would you recommend trying to grab? Is there a list anywhere of what they will have? Any sort of rankings, etc? I am not a beer freak so I can't name them all off I just loved Zombie Dust, Alpha King, Gumbal head etc. never had anything else, I just want to make the whole thing worth while haul wise, advice?

    That's a recipe for a DWI isn't it? I would think there are sobriety checkpoints for drivers between it and Chicago?
