...the last thing they needed to do was hype this event.

Ticket sales were so smooth when they just went unannounced and started one day..

BA is probably in OMGMeltdown mode over this.

Oh snap! I hope this doesnít become one of those DLD type situations where itís impossible to get tickets. Boo-urns, I say, boo-urns...

Okay, so Iíve gotten some clarification overall regarding the changes for FoBAB. First, the Plumberís Union Hall was an impossibility this year. Apparently, the Hall reneged on ICBG and said they couldnít have the weekend that they needed. As a result, a new site was sought. FWIW, the guy that handles FoBAB, scheduling and logistics, lives near OíHare. And doesnít drive to beer events. It is very inconvenient for him as well. Anyway, with all of this being said, the new venue is larger than the Plumberís Hall, apparently. There will be more tickets available this year as well. Thatís all I have for right now, once I have more info, Iíll fill yíall in.

Also, crime has been increasing in the Little Italy/UIC íhood. Chinatown, Fuller Park, IIT area, & Back of the Yards? Eh. Depends when you wander into those areas.


Englewood is quite a hike from Bridgeport. There are dicey areas everywhere. 2 blocks from where I live is gang turf, my street is full of families and old school immigrants. Itís a city. Just sayin.

No early ticket purchasing for ICBG members?

I presume you mean IMBIBE? I donít recall if they had a pre-sale in the past. I know a few years ago they did free IMBIBE entrance for charter members.
