We can look for the "Hatterizer", but I'd bet we won't be seeing it.

Can't promise, but I may have an extra or two for the afternoon session if you can check back with me in a week or so.

thanks muckraker.

could this be the work of the local evil anti beer coalition?  geez...

for profit company, oh my...this is a community supporting an event.  pardon, i'm not reading the entire article (i generally attempt to avoid news unless my favorite jon or steven is spoofing it...believe it or not my skin is too thin for the disgraces -and in this case what i presume to be nonsense- that is our news)...

if volunteers didn't want to support it there would be alternative ways of making this happen.  it is a free market after all.

...ridiculous...i'm sure this 'for profit' entity at least pays taxes and doesn't cause trouble...this is a low circulation, educational beer magazine, not enron or the church.
i]i want a raise.  i want to go home.  i want sex.  i want a cookie.[/i]

Sometimes nonprofits just don't have the ummpphh to throw their own successful BIG events--or the experience.  I believe it must be a combined effort, esp. in a downtown setting (trash, traffic, locations, etc. usually fall to the city services anyhow)...

What an absurd article and poor journalism.  Not one cricital source in the article allowed their name to be printed?  Characterizing the event as "all day beer drinking event" is also rather slanted. Talk about a non-story.  One definitely has to wonder about motiviation here.  A "newspaper" (even one with only 23,000 monthly readers) should know the difference between editorials, columns and news articles and clearly distinguish those for their readers.

I would think this thing could be put to rest easily if AAB would say how much $ they are giving to the Alliance.      If they amount they are giving is less than the time spent by paid staff or takes away from paid staff activities that would benifit Raleigh-based businesses, than it might be a legit issue.

The fact that AAB would not say how much money they are giving makes me think they might be taking advantage of the tax funded Raleigh org.

So who's going to what session?  I know the Massholes (oldgrowth and myself) will be at the evening (gongshow) session, with our corresponding better halves.  This will be my first evening session for one of these things - I'm curious to see how out of control it's gonna be.  Rumor on the streets is that Big Boss is having Pro Roller Derby women pouring for them...
