    Breaking down the $35 admission, dont forget you gotta pay the bands.

    I'm all about Oktoberfest, and was thinking about grabbing some tickets to this. Perhaps I will have to get on that.

    So how many tickets were actually available for this? People seem to still be able to buy them.

    I know they said 1/3 of their brewery opening party...but i dont even know the ticket counts for that

    If I wasnt already out of town, I would be all over this. Sounds way more fun than the opening party.

    I'm in. I've missed too many good Rev Brew parties to not jump on this wagon. It's wishful thinking, but if I could get a liter of BA Baracus, I think I might have an awesome time, that I won't remember :)

    My brother-in-law and I are deciding whether to do this or not, and seeing as we really only want to watch college football and drink beer, we'll probably stick to another bar during the day. Definitely hitting Revolution Friday night though!

    When did you purchase the tickets? Anyone that bought them after the 17th (I think) will have a ticket waiting at will-call.

    You'll have no problem whatsoever, I'm fairly sure. Not a busy part of town. For a good alcohol-buffering Mexican meal beforehand go over on Belmont to the intersection with California & Elston and eat at La Traspasada. Their black salsa is the shiiiiit. Or go to the Joong Boo market a quarter-mile west at 3333 N. Kimball for a hearty bowl of bibimbap.

    You definitely will find parking. If not on Kedzie, then on the side streets around it. No problem.

    I'll be wearing knee high obnoxious yellow socks that say "beer". That'll be the easiest way to find me if anyone wants to say "hey".

    Beer socks have vetoed. Look for a red, yellow, and black lei.
