to all my friends...

do you love beer?

No I don't..I used to drink it but it made me tired and my eyes bulged eyes is what we called it...Elings Park is host to a Beer festival in get this, a bunch of people driving to the park to celebrate and drink beer..after five or six glasses, some idiots will get in their cars and drive onto the streets of Santa Barbara..well what a brilliant idea for festival fun!
The cops should set up a DUI checkpoint at the park entrance!

The Independent even has a little contest:

Write a little essay about the wonders of alcoholism and win free tickets to the event!
..and here's the pitch!
About the 2008 Santa Barbara Beer Festival..Fun never felt so good
Newly managed by a committee from the Santa Barbara Rugby Association, the 2008 Santa Barbara Beer Festival's goals are simple: to help promote two local nonprofits and have a lot of fun while doing so.
Please join us Saturday, October 18th, from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m., when the fields at Elings Park will be transformed into Santa Barbara's oldest beer festival featuring the best microbrews from the central and west coast. For just $30, you'll get a glass and an afternoon of unlimited beer tasting. We look forward to seeing you there!

unlimited beer tasting!! Well, you won't see me there you drunken hooligans...I'll be working to shut down this stupid event...

I understand your concern. In order to help prevent drunk driving, the Santa Barbara Beer Festival is letting designated drivers in free of charge, has ensured that cab companies will be waiting at Elings Park for pickups, and has arranged for Bill's Bus to shuttle people downtown after the event. Additionally, there will be two uniformed police officers in attendance.

Through our marketing, we have encouraged participants to designate a driver in advance and to be responsible while they enjoy tasting different brews at our festival.

So what you're saying,Chad,is that there will be a whole lotta drunk people there.. At least you didn't throw in a car show like last year..we know cars and beer don't mix well, but I've never played Rugby drunk..hey, souinds like fun..I'll be there!

None for me said...

I wish the folks who plan all those food- and winetasting fundraisers would also plan free transportation home for those who attend.

I don't go to any of them because I don't drink and drive.

None for Me..we need more people like you in the world!
