Luckily I didn't pay but this event was a disaster!
a couple words of wisdom to the Beer on the Bridge brass:
1. Don't give people the wrong idea,... this turned out to be a beer TASTING event,... if that's what it's going to be, then fine,... make sure that's how you sell it - people don't TASTE beer,... we DRINK it
2. Close the Bridge - it was already crowded enough with drinkers,.. errr,... tasters,... the last thing we needed were looky-lous & bike riders
3. Running out of beer is one thing,... a majority of the vendors out of beer with over an hour to go of an event that is only 3 hours long is just plan stupid
4. Stretch the vendors all the way across the bridge,... there was a 1/3 of the bridge wasted while everybody was crammed in the middle
$25 advance - $30 day- of is robbery for what this event turned out to be,... even if it was for charity
As a regular participant in these types of events we were there at about 3:50, got in, started tasting and bailed out by a little after 5. The early bear gets the beer. Never count on these events to be managed in any reasonable way.
Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean people aren't after you.
