Default Great Taste of the Midwest

Anyone going to the Great Taste this year? Tickets go on sale this Sunday. You could always try your luck in the mail lottery on Monday if you can't wait in line.

I was lucky enough to score in the lottery. My dad waited outside, in line for six hours and was 20 people from the front when they sold out. Needless to say, he was bummed. At least he's got my second ticket!

I wish they'd come out with the brewer/beer list before the event so we could make a plan of attack, though.

My co-worker ended scoring brewer passes. She even gets to go in before the general public. Oh how I envy her right now.

Just won a pair of tickets on twitter. Now I just need to find a (man)date. Also, transportation and/or lodging.

Wouldn't have thought winning tickets would be the easy part
