    @ Monks yesterday. Actually wasn't too bad unless you hate crowds. I was towards the back of the line and got in in an hour.

    Samples of PtY were small but it was for a great cause. Also lots of other RR on tap. Supp/Cons/Sanc/PtE/BP, etc. The de Struise Double combo was pretty wild too.

    That's fucking crazy! I've been to a ton of events at Monks and have never seen a line like that. I woke up early(for me) and planned on heading over there around 10-10:30 but when I heard about the line I decided to wait for the crowd to thin out. I'm glad I did because it was a much more relaxed atmosphere when I arrived. I missed out on younger but I was more concerned with the raffles and double black.

    I'm surprised that the line moved as well as it did. When I left around 2:30, it was really not that crowded at all.

    You're welcome, my only regret is I didn't get to interview enough people I was too busy chatting up my neighbors.

    I thought of this right after the day, but I should have went right to the front of the line and interviewed/filmed the first people there (they were there at SEVEN AM!).

    I would have liked to picked that persons brain for sure.

    The thing was everybody there was in such great spriits, it was one of the best bar vibes I had in awhile, and yeah it was f**** crazy inside.

    How can you not love having Russian River, while the bar is blasting Pantera and Megadeth... I mean SERIOUSLY!

    God it was heaven...
