    Event was great. Blacked out in the Uber on the way back to the hotel. Amazing.

    One tap for Happy Mountain kombucha would be awesome, to get a breather from booze and to allow any DD’s an alternative to root beer / water. Handful of people mentioned that’d be much appreeesh.

    However, the events are still super amazing & would bang over & over again like Nelly & Tim McGraw.

    That cold brew was a life saver. Drank way too much of it.

    My only suggestion would be to bring back the oysters to the event! I certainly had plenty at the o&g social but wouldn’t have minded more like there were last year. Other than that, no complaints. Absolutely fantastic weekend. Although my wallet does hurt.

    ^ The main issue with the oysters during VIP is that we’d like to let Chef Connor actually enjoy one of the events instead of working insanely hard three days in a row. Finding people to volunteer and who actually know how to efficiently & properly shuck fresh oysters is not easy.

    Noted on the kombucha tap. I like that idea, as I don’t drink much myself during the event.

    Huge thanks once again to all of you for your generous support!

    abawol01 got a steal on that 3F package. From what Digita7693 told me, those guys are fahking pumped with the results, and you should be expecting some excellent treatment.

    It's weird that my wife is way more pumped than I am about it and I am freaking psyched.

    Highlight was meeting Digita7693 in person, O+G as a whole and The Referend at VIP... practicing my oyster shucking for a 30 min shift next yr.

    Also, remind me about that Kombucha keg and it will happen.

    I noticed a table with two plates piled with uneaten sausages several hours after “sausage hour” which I’m certain went into the trash. So that will happen if you offer up plates.

    Food was great, beers were awesome, great to see so many of you again (and meet some new people).

    I didn’t feel like I got a ton either but my bill was still $15,000. Glad you got the trip man! It’s gonna be epic
