Great Taste Ticket Weekend 2018
« on: March 26, 2018, 10:08:55 AM »
The annual Saturday Night Beer Share will be at our house on May 5th. Let's add a potluck this year!

We have an extra bed/couch/recliner/floor space for your couple of hours of sleep, or if you want us to book you a guest room at the common house, let me know. There are two still available, as of this morning.

Should we plan on Wine and Hop again? It worked out really well for Furley and me last year, so seems like a solid choice.  <_< But it is walkable, so that's something.

Cool :excited:
I'd be open to entertaining other location options, that experience really soured me on the whole ticket thing.

I'd pay to see someone drive up and heckle that dude, then blow an airhorn if he tried to talk.
On the bright side, maybe he had to retire from such a strenuous line of volunteer work. :bye:

If I could claim a couch or someplace to crash, that would be awesome. I'm planning on driving up early afternoon-ish on Friday

Might have to put the air horn on ice.

No Wine and Hop this year. My guess is because of Monroe street construction, but maybe because of Dude Man...
Replacing it with Karben 4.

Rumor is that Star is closed, if true that list of locations will need to change.

Yeah, not much of an update from the home brew club other then acknowledging they are looking at options for other locations.

This sucks for people on the Isthmus as now 2/3 of the closest locations for them are no longer an option as of now. I imagine Cork and Bottle is going to be a bit more crowded then years past.

I doubt FFG, though it would be great. I'm sure they would love to do it but based on what Levi has been posting to fb it sounds like they are having a lot of issues with neighbors and I doubt having 150-300 people line up early in the morning would help with that.

My guess is it goes to Working Draft, as that is less then a block from Star and they have wine and hop shop connection. Though they are so new they may not want something like that.

They haven't for a few years, but this year would have been a great year to bring it back IMO. They gave some reason of it being too far out for the security service they used. But with two locations bowing out and them needing a last minute replacement I had hoped.

Looks like they just added additional tickets to the remaining locations.

Roll call for Saturday night?

Confirmed:
NickJess
Gwen
Ken and Linda (family friends from MKE that most of you have met before)

Nick smoked a bunch of pork shoulder yesterday so we'll have that going with buns and bbq sauce.
We also have a fair amount of cheeses and olives.

We'll figure out a time and post here later this week, but likely 7ish? Bring whatever, beer/food if you're inclined, or just your smiling bearded face. :thumbup: :banned:

Sadly oot this year. :( trying my luck with the lotto, wishing y’all good luck on Sunday.
Putting more tickets at fewer locations seems like it may help the odds some.

Sounds like that should be a condition for you working the weekend.

I can probably buy an extra ticket from MHTG through Surly if we don't win the lotto.

Smaller group this year, but should still be a good time.  :thumbup:

Let's plan on bottle sharing/potlucking around 7 tomorrow night. Feel free to bring a friend or two. Text one of us for an address if you need it.
