    Now that we have a city, dates, and a venue, I figured we should probably get a new thread going.

    Twitter announcement is below:

    Very much wanting to be in. I think it corresponds with a wedding I'm attending, but if not, I'm super super there

    Definitely interested in this one, especially given that the drive isn't too bad. Way too early to tell how my schedule is going to be for the fall though.

    Expect the FIB migration to overwhelm the commonwealth

    I don't know you personally, but I'd really like to hear someone say "Julian, please" to your face, in person.

    I was hoping Shaun said it to him at FoFA this past summer... I would have gone home before the festival if that happened.

    Well I went ahead and booked my hotel. After last year's amazing fest, no chance do I miss this one.

    Holding off on flights though in hopes that they'll drop in cost before October. A two-hour flight should not cost so much...

    But man oh man I'll be at the Festival again this year without a doubt.

    I've never figured it out, but flights to/from Louisville are always nuts. Always $250+ for me, and consistently $100 more than whatever flights to NYC run (for about the same geographic distance away)

    I'm not afraid of FIBs - honestly, this thing was amazing last year, and that was Florida. Even CaptiveOdyssey was having a good time. I will be there, 100%.

    I'm not great with beer acronyms, but I assume FIB is synonymous with shitlord, homie, asshole, etc?

    There was one specific dirtbag there that was stealing Westy 12 glasses, but if I'm not mistaken he's actually from Philly, and is a well-known douchebag, so whatever.

    Also, I'm pretty sure there was somebody passed out face down in the grass outside after the first session on day two. Which was unfortunate.

    Otherwise, everybody there was really nice. It was a fun, laid back experience.

    FIB = Fucking Illinois Bastard

    It's a term of endearment from our Sconny brethren

    Oh shit...I gotta go. Will be living in NC by the fall, so Kentucky should be damn near driveable.
