I went back in 2002, and that was enough for me. The beers I wanted were already tapped out (and this was EARLY on Friday afternoon!), and the place stank of too many warm, wet bodies. Haven't been back to a PDX beerfest since. It's sad how everything good in this town has simply become a mobscene.
Nope, too long a drive home and staying up there isn't an option.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

I'm with khiddy. The fest is just in too small a space and too many people to really enjoy. SWMBO and I had thought of going yesterday to beat any crowds. Turns out they had a record attendance day and many folks were tweeting about long lines shortly after opening. Just can't enjoy something like that.
