    Plot twist... lines and chaos is so outrageous they sell all three bottles the first day. Pissing off eveyone imaginable.

    So real opinion question. I have two ppl willing to wait for me but won’t be able to wait until 7am. I can go whenever I want. Do I

    A) wait in line myself and go much earlier to ensure one bottle?

    Or

    B) wait until they can go at 7am, chance to get three bottles but possibility of missing completely if the line is crazy and there are more ppl than bottles.

    Alternative suggestions welcome

    You're really asking people on here for suggestions to mule? Here's a suggestion: jump in a river.

    Unfortunately i think if you wait until 7 you'll end up with 0 bottles all 3 days. The fact several hundred were in line for b2 by 6 am.....this is dld weekend so even more people will be in town and not to mention barrel aged.

    Ok I probably should rephrase that. I have two friends of mine who live close. I will be waiting in line with them as well or alone. Should have said it better. Not just random ppl.

    Go early and hang with the people in line next to you. When your buds get there, walk back and share/talk. When they are doing tickets/scanning, move back up and the people near your chair in line will know you belong there.

    Get there early, and try to have them cut in line with you. You can be sure hundreds of others will be doing the same thing.

    Guys, I’m in line now and I’m cold alone and hungry. There’s a raccoon staring at me menacingly but the scarier thing is the man petting the raccoon.

    I think he is whispering “soon.”

    “He’ll fall asleep soon.”

    ...

    Guys, I’m getting sleepy but I’m afraid. I want to go home to my family. But... vanilla.

    I think my family will be disappointed if I don’t stay. Right? Dad...?

    So real opinion question. I have a “friend” (pictured) who will be placed into line. He’s quiet and likes puzzles. Never really moves around much. I reckon he’ll be there by, hell, I guess I could put him in line now.

    I can’t get there until 9 am Friday morning. Should I be a true BA’er and line cut to join him and act like nothing happened, or just roll the dice ... you know what? Nevermind. I have my answer.

    Not sure if this has been discussed, More mentioned Villa Park having a 'NOISE' ordinance, not a 'People outside in public before 7am" ordinance. I say get there as early as you want and do nothing more than a whisper to each other. Everybody wins. I'm waking up at 2am and making the drive from west Michigan, should be there by 3-330cst, and ill be damned if im not going to line my silent ass up at that time.

    Has the makings of a Hollywood movie. Villa Park: A Quiet Place, neckbeards & their mules must queue in silence while hiding from police & a 3rd party security firm which patrol exclusively by sound.

    The fact that I was able to post gif of Weekend at Bernie’s and a pic from Forest Gump in succession tells one everything they need to know about this thread. It’s a gift that keeps on giving.

    Disappointed in Chicago Entrepeneurs...just looked on Chicago's Craigslist and there are no Postings for people to stand in line at More this weekend...way behind Tampa in this regard where many are hired off Craigslist and even given easy to spot uniforms for The Mule Handler as hired mules have a tendency to wander off when given cash and or have gotten the bottles

    You people are goddamn insane if you think getting there by 7am won't get you a bottle. This is how this kind of bullshit happens. Internet rumors, FOMO, then people line up at fucking 2am.

    Ordinance or not, people will line up, bottle share and be dicks, it's a fact that sucks and makes everyone in line look like assholes. What could possibly hurt More is if the VPPD spends a lot of their time for 3 days monitoring the people in line and answering noise complaints. Will the VP residents appreciate that their tax dollars are being spent monitoring neckbeards at a beer release? I don't think they will. That is what may determine if they move releases off site of go back to tickets or a lottery.

    The bar to clear is the Kentuckley/Bark Lord release of 2017 where a woman threatened to mow the line down with her car. Then she did a re-run and put us on Facebook live. Does VP have a resident crazy lady who's willing to top that?

    What More also didn't mention is VPPD has the right to shut down the events. Almost happened during henna b1 when the one moron decided to piss on the neighboring business' property.

    It really would've been a thing if More had done a timed online ticket sale in which each person would opt for a single bottle of one of the three variants. Just about everyone who tried for a bottle would've likely gotten one, and those of us with friends could've entered into agreements as to who would go for which specific bottle and shared 'em.

    Of course, that wouldn't build hype that leads to crazy pretrades so....

    why, because im going to be ahead of the game and embrace my inner fomo? based on your responses, you have not come to terms with your fomo and think that everyone will get there at 7am, be orderly and this will go off without a hitch.

    does anyone know if there will be honey buckets for those of us camping out over night?

    I’ve got a nervous bladder so peeing outside in front of a bunch of hobos is worrisome.
