    Conforming isn't odd people do it all the time. But, I'm not doing it because snobs have a problem with it, I'm doing it because its a supposed "red flag for security" and I don't want to be hassled at the door for attempting to bring in outside food.

    Seems like it's a red flag because people with pretzel necklaces have a propensity for getting really drunk, thus security may want to keep an extra eye on you. But if you're not going to be doing anything abnormal, then who cares?

    Nerds! :angry: Only nerds would argue over stupid pretzels around your neck days before an epic beer fest. :astonished:

    Passport okay for ID? License expires on Thursday and I have plans so won't be able to renew.

    Which room at the Seaport is the fest? I didn't see it on the EBF page and I know there are a few ballroom, convention spaces there. Thanks.

    It's in the main exhibit hall. The big ass room we do ACBF in.

    Anyone having beers before or after? What places are people going? Normally I go to Picco, but it isn't as close this year. Friday night for me.

    There absolutely aren't enough beers at EBF. Plan on having the 300+ beers at EBF, and more...

    So I will get into Boston around 3, get situated at the hotel, and go grab a very late lunch. Yes I would like to have a beer or two with my food. I was hoping for some input on a place really close to the event, that has some good taps. This is my 4 EBF, I know what I'm doing. Anything going on after?

    Do I understand correctly that there is no coat check? Also will my wife be allowed to bring her purse in, no pretzels or empty growlers inside.:wink:

    I'm so excited, holy shit!! I understand that staff probably doesn't get to drink as much as a ticketed attendee, but I'm totally psyched just to be there!

    I've got to avoid that one. My body has a serious, serious, serious objection to the "PB" part of "PB stout".
