    May 19, this can be the super duper early thread because surely no one cares about this event right now

    Weekend after Mother's Day next year. Hot damn I might just make a return trip. Haven't been since 2014.

    Expecting 20 different variants!

    But we really only want like 3 ?

    Marshmallow
    Vanilla
    Coconut

    Finally tried dark lord.... ('17) and it was not appealing. And I heard '17 is better (less Soy sauce) than typical.

    Should I even ask - how are the BA variants so much better and the biggest question - how is the regular DL still popular?

    In a world of pastry stouts and backsweetened IPAs you can't be that surprised that people love a stout with the calorie load of a big mac.

    100% chance of debauchery.

    Read 'debauchery' as 'douchebaggery'. Correct statement either way.

    need to make a dartboard to guesstimate other site's sarcastic death metal band name meme that they'll start in the next 48 hours or so oh shit it's too late

    They are doing Pro-Dragon-Life shirts this year. No more choice for dragon mothers.

    well bigger douchbaggery is the Hampton Inn down the street doubled their rates for this weekend. That being said, I have a twin room reserved and decided not to go this year that is up for grabs.

    Who needs the Hampton anymore now that that new Marriott across Calumet in Centennial park will be open and only about a block from FFF!

    I swear 60% of the reasoning behind building that hotel was because of Floyds.
