I kinda do. It was good and cheap.
I don't remember seeing them last year either. They were there in 2014 and 2015, but sold out fairly early.
There were people making breakfast tacos at the north gate but I'm not sure they were affiliated with FFF. I think they just set up a stand on public property making tacos.
The last two years I didn't eat because it was pouring rain sideways. I was also black out drunk by 1pm. Hopefully I can actually partake in some of the fine foods this year. Bottle shares in food lines, who would have thought...
I just checked the festival maps (www.darklordday.info) and for 2015 it showed the breakfast taco stands at the north gate line and the south gate line. For 2016 the breakfast taco stands weren't there.
99 Pages..... I think we're going to do it.
I don't understand why they don't have more food vendors.... The main food line last year took roughly an hour to get through.
Food trucks would be sweet, though sometimes those lines takes forever.
I think Three Floyds is abandoning the food truck idea this year but damn I really want Dönermen to be there. The currywurst was perfect after a morning of adjunct stouts.
Here's something to chew on.....weather this weekend looks like shit. So mission accomplished Three Floyds did the right thing. But next weekend is looking like it might be beautiful outside. So if the weather is shit on the 13th we're gonna be complaining about why didn't they just push it back one week? Especially since they mucked up people's Mother's Day.
Come on guys, getting to 100 pages is equivalent to winning a first or second round series in the playoffs. We have bigger goals!
As long as this weekend is a mess, even if DLD is a mess as well, I'd be fine with that. If this Saturday was nice and then DLD turned out to be crap for weather, then I'd be butthurt.
It's just random to try and pick a date that won't have shitty weather.... I respect them for at least trying to get a weekend with potentially better weather, but I'm guessing it was more about money than really caring about the attendees. The better the weather the longer people will stay and spend money. It's all about the $$$.
Ask and you shall receive...
You guys are getting off topic, get back to Dragon Abortion.
Back to the food though...I'd really love to see more of it. A few food booths cannot keep up with thousands of hungry people. I seen't it (and experienced it). Early on it's not too bad. I think I was only in line for 10 minutes to get tacos shortly after entering the fest. As the day goes on and the peoples start getting hungry from all the beers the lines got really long. I think I waited at least 30 minutes for a burger.
man i walk away from this thread for 5 days, and i'm lost as all get out.
still iso that group A extra ticket tho
There's always the pub sale.
I'll see myself out.
Make your own sandwiches and bring them in. Seriously. It will do wonders. When you eat that sandwich and stare at the one hour food line you will feel so good.
First time post in this cluster of a message board
This will be my first DLD. I am attending with my wife and we are group C. After reading some comments about what time people are showing up I have a question. The website says Group C times are 1-3 PM. Does that mean I cannot get into the fest until that time or that's when I can actually go get my allotment? I'm sorry if that's an idiotic question but being my first time out there I want to know how this all plays out. Thanks in advance from a newbie.
I do bring stuff to munch on. It held me off anytime i needed to wait in line for food. I just can't help it...I need hot, delicious food when I'm buzzed.
No, you can enter at 9am as soon as the festival starts, and stay until it closes. The Group time is just when you have to line up to get your Dark Lord bottles.
You can enter the fest when the gates open at 9am. You can't get your allotment of Dark Lord until the time on your ticket, which is 1-3pm.
Perfect! Thanks for the clarification! This DLD virgin was a little confused.
Also, plan on arriving a bit early as the lines to get into the fest take a bit.
Seems like a good time to repost the survival guide that gets posted every year, not mine but I definitely agree with it!
I'm hoping they'll have Dark Lord Ice Cream again. I want to try it and have passed on it the last two years because it was just too damn cold and miserable for ice cream.
anyone staying at the Fairfield Hammond and have share details? If not, PM me and let's get something started. I checked through a decent amount of this and didn't find anything on it.

I scream, you scream, but don't be confused, none of us are screaming for Dark Lord ice cream- it's just the metal bands doing their sets.

On the subject of food, I'm pretty sure I had Dark Lord poutine--or something similar--last year. It was delicious.
I forgot about those poutine fries! I want to try those. They looked really good.
Stupid question, and this may have already been brought up, does Group A have to line up in the North entrance? I was planning to stick with the South...
Not complaining, but when did They start allowing memes and gif's back on this forum?
You don't have to. They ask Group A to go to the North Gate to get them in faster and filter you straight into the bottle pickup line. At least one year they opened the South Gate around 30 minutes later than the North Gate.
But really if you want to hang out with South Gate peeps you can do that. Just like Group Es can get in the North Gate at 9am if they really want to.
I think we've determined that the answer is no.
The North gate was such a mess last year, I was in that line and it was awful. People going in the South gate were getting in earlier and there a bunch of really mad group A people. We shall see if/how they remedy that this year...
