Did anyone order extra tickets expressly for the purpose of selling them to an idiot like me?

We'll probably have an extra set. We bought tickets for both sessions but I'm not sure we're going to both. I'll keep you in mind when we figure it out.

Edit: PM me if you want the later session tiks...

I just went to the site to order tix and online sales are sold out? WTF?

It says local retailers will be selling tix starting September 1st, can one of you Raleigh guys hook me up?

Let me know who the good samaritan is and I'll make sure you have paypal funds before the 1st.

How can online tix be sold out? That makes no sense....

SWMBO called American Brewmaster in Raleigh and they said they'd take credit card orders over the phone on 1 Sep. She or I will call them first thing after they open and will order them then. As a backup, Boston, IM me your cell in case something goes wrong and they don't want to take our order over the phone - I can paypal you or send a check or something if I need someone to be there in person. Both SWMBO and I will be out of town that day which is why we're relying on the phone-in method.

Nate: Thanks for the offer. Can you hold your extras until I get some locked up for sure. I'd rather be at the session with you and all the rest from Raleigh last time - which I assume is the afternoon session, correct? If you need to get rid of them before the 1st, I understand.

Dude, yeah, can you believe they sold out so early? We tried on the 15th and they were already gone!

Desperatly,
Focus

No problem... we'll hold them for a little while. Worst case, we drink both sessions.

The things we will do for our passions... It brings a tear to this bleary, bloodshot eye.

PS. SWMBO is particularly excited about seeing you and your Frau again. You are going to the afternoon session, correct?

Free shuttle? I'm suddenly interested. Which hotel is this?

Right now, we're looking into a private car / limo to get us from Goldsbubba to Durham to dinner / afterparty and back home. The rugrat makes decisions more complicated - babysitter, bring along, hotel room? - but we're exploring all options.
