    Didn't Ankur co-host this party with you in previous years Jawz? What happened to him? He was a cool dude for sure.

    ***IMPORTANT CHANGE***

    The date will have to be changed. Sorry, but an unforseen conflict has arisen. I will be forced to move this event two weeks later than posted above, to Saturday, March 23rd.

    I will be in the riders column as the lady is taking our fuel efficient vehicle to Fargo that weekend. Not to mention the last 2 years I haven't felt to chipper the next morning. I'll pay for gas and snacks.

    Chipper was the last word I'd use to describe us. Though that was the best crappy Perkins breakfast I've ever had.

    I rode last year so am more than happy to drive this year, anybody who wants to climb into the CX-9 & head south, let me know. BeerHunterGuy gets first dibs if he wants it, since he dragged my ass around last winter.

    I ate the fuck out of that Perkins. It was gross, but I was grosser.

    I'm in. I'll be looking for a ride with you, if that's cool.

    Any update folks?

    What are people bringing?

    Who's riding which whom?

    Hotel rooms?

    I'll bring an original label(2009?) Imperial Stout Trooper, Big John, Burly Gourd, a palate cleanser of some sort, and some homemade sours.

    Even though it is a stout tasting, Joe's sours should be more than welcome anywhere!

    Btw- the bottle you have me a few weeks ago: stellar! Thanks a lot!

    Hey, I'm going to have to reverse my RSVP, so that'll open up a space if it's filled.

    Have fun. This was a top-notch event last year.

    I REALLY want to come, and I can't stress that enough, but the wife is working and I'm doing a high end wine tasting as well as a 09-12 Darkness vertical up in the cities Friday night. That and NCAA drinking Thu/Fri keeps me from doing a 3-day bender.

    Alright Fck Faces, you have no idea what you are missing. It will be ANOTHER epic event. Yes, you have to drive to Lake City, but the food and the beer will more than make up for whatever you have to spend. I have room for 2, if you want a ride down and back, you have it, message me. I alone plan on bringing beer alone not to miss: Nooner, 5 50/50 Eclipse variations, and a couple of surprises. So pull up your skirt and jump on.

    I am going. Staying overnight at the Alaska Lodge. Have room in the truck for the ride as well or if someone else is staying overnight, maybe I can ride with you?

    I do not have epic stouts to share, but I am bringing some interesting beers, and maybe an actual stout or two.
