Ok, kids!

Confirmation received that GTMW lottery responses are out. Saw a friend got his denial.. the little card said a little under 40% of entries got filled. That seems pretty high.. usually closer to 30%..

Either way, when those start going out.. I start the thread.

Letís hear it.. who won? Whoíll be there?

Cheers!


My check was cashed so it is time to make plans. Iíll have an extra if anyone didnít luck out.

There is a Doubletree near the Brick House that is currently $152 a night. The location is about halfway between the Friday festivities (Maduro, the Dane, etc) and Olin Park.

Iíve had good luck staying at the Hilton. The Sheraton used to be horrible but it is now updated quite a bit. Madison Concourse is awesome but $$$$$. Taxis to and from downtown are cheap, usually under $10. Iím pretty sure they are free when leaving the GTMW, so a ride back into town for a $5 tip isnít bad at all.

Cabs are $1 from the festival.. but the line gets pretty big.

A lot of the downtown hotels do shuttles (Madison Concourse did one my firs year I remember).

The Hilton doesnít have a shuttle service, I know that much. Walking back downtown is only about 25 minutes and a good way to shake your blackout off.

Struck out again this year, 3rd time in a row now. Maybe I need to slide some cash in my envelope next year to make sure I get them.



Looking for 2 if anyone has extras.

I wore a RateBeer shirt last year and ran into lots of folks. Also, someone called out "RateBeer is for fags!" or something like that in passing. Not sure if they were kidding or not...
