|02:19 pm - ComFest|
I have next Friday off for ComFest, apparently. This is a good thing.
It means I can staff the Grove booth.
Time to figure out how much literature we're going to need.
Current Mood: busy
Current Music: "Lovely Cruise", -JB
I should stop by and bug you.
Please do! We'll be there all weekend :)
ComFest has beer tokens, right? Is any of it decently dark beer?
Since some of my Grove members are working beer tents, one of them can probably tell you. At this point, I'll hope they see this post and answer you. romandruid
Yeah ... I'll admit it. I'm a beer snob. I like my beer dark and tasty, not that urinesque crap that most Americans accept as beer.
Comfest is not for beer snobs, unfortunately. There will be Rolling Rock and Rolling Rock light, I believe, and at one tent (the off ramp, I believe?) there will be Columbus Brewing Company Pale Ale.
Please come anyway! :)
Columbus Brewing Company Pale Ale is acceptable.
Yes, ComFest does the tokens bit. Last year they were $3 and $5, depending on which beer you wanted.
i may be in columbus next friday. if so, i will see you there
Excellent! Been missing you.
I might go. I never thought about it before, but I guess I will actually be up there anyway and have no real excuse not to go. Will anybody be available who is NOT working and wants to chill?
Believe me, there is much trouble to be gotten into at ComFest whether you're alone or in a group.
But if you're willing to volunteer, we still have some slots available so we can get our deposit back :)
Me, I'll be at the booth all day drinkin' lots of carrot juice and soakin' up rays.
ComFest is probably *the* best place to people-watch I've ever seen. Simply standing still is interesting.
Volunteer to do what? Sounds good.
Haha, and I'm always up for just chilling around drinking... er, carrot juice and watching people.
The volunteer shifts are pretty varied:http://www.comfest.com/forvolunteers.htm
You can do all sorts of stuff, if you'd like. Every hour earns another $4 back for the Grove, until we recover all the cash from our volunteer deposit. Basically, you just tell them that you're there to volunteer for us, and we get some of our cash back.
But you're more than welcome to hang out and talk to people, a la Student Involvement Fair.
