I went to this for the first time last year to meet up with some friends who had volunteered to work the beer tent (not bad people to know, huh?) and when the second shift relief volunteers did not show up they asked if I would mind pulling the tap (who, me? Obviously you have mistaken me for someone else.... let's see 1 for you, 2 for me...). If you were there you might remember me - I was the one wearing the Navy T-shirt that said 'NAUGHTY" in silver glitter (boy does the VIP hate that shirt!), taking tickets with my teeth and pouring the Blonde Ale asking why no one wanted a redhead that night...someone call me a cab home please...
I am CONVINCED it cannot be as much fun this year but it won't stop me from trying! Who's IN?
