Default Who else is waiting in line for tix to Taste of the Great Midwest?

I'm at STEVE'S liquor on the west side of Madison, waiting to buy these tickets. My friends and I have been here since 6:45. It's now 9 or so. Only 3 hours left.

Who else is waiting in line?

Got my tickets after waiting in line for 6 hours. I'm stoked. And drunk.

After watching my oatmeal stout power through its fermentation lock I went to Steve's.

Home run in sight



I'm glad we were able to get tickets. Many people showing up after 8:30 had no chance of getting tickets.

I was at Tyranena at 5:30 this morning. Got tickets, but I'll definately be camping out next year. I was 60th in line but there was well over 300-400 people that showed up expecting to get tickets after 9. Tyranena has an extremely nice setup. You're not allowed to bring your own beer, but they started serving their beer at 8:30. Very well organized and the whole event went smoothly. Now the hard part is waiting until august....

Man, I started drinking in line at 7:00 yesterday morning and kept going until 10 last night. Quite the marathon.
