I am SO getting that coffin...
 
2010-06-04 03:19:57 PM
So.. are we to expect more beer raids this week?

Nothing like staggering around drunk and getting bumrushed by the SWAT team trying to stop someone from selling unregistered beer.

875 beers in 10 days? That's less than four beers an hour! Is that supposed to be some sort of challenge?

Every hour. For 240 straight hours.

/Is there a Red Bull booth?

Even if the beer was free it wouldn't be worth having to spend four days in Philadelphia.

OK, so I would have to slow down a bit. Wouldn't wanna run out of beer.

I'm sure I'll stumble upon a few joints. What's the point in planning?

Coming from a resident of Pittsburgh, how funny.

If the serving size is a small cup like it usually is at these festivals, 875 is definitely doable.

But like Agent Nick Fury says, that's 10 days I'd have to spend in Philadelphia.

What the hell is that stench emanating from Philly as you drive up I95?

So, as the vaunted Hammer of Glory - the iron keg mallet that has become the symbol of "America's Best Beer-Drinking City"

Agent Nick Fury you sir, are an idiot.

Everyone knows...
"Go Eagles! Philly rules! Cheesesteak Bobby Clark Will Smith your town sucks!"

But seriously- where are all the Philly farkers going this weekend??? I agree Monks is fantastic for pretty much any given day of the week, but for Beer Week I want to check out something new...

Philly is a pretty good drinking city. Lots of cool events throughout the year.

Not sure if I'll try to get into Manayunk for the race this year. That's a fun non-official drinking day.

I'll pass. Aside from the fact that I have almost 15 cases of beer at home, I refuse to do anything that supports PA's retarded, archaic booze laws.

/15 minute ride to the Delaware border for me
//they get all my business
 
2010-06-04 03:41:03 PM
darn, I was supposed to be in Philly too. Maybe all the booze will make the Phillistines? Philadals? Delphians? all complacent at least until the end of the Stanley Cup.

Philly blows away Pitt in both food and nightlife. Not even a competition.

Putting french fries on a sandwich does not make it unique or tasty.

You do not want this argument, Lemon. Boston is the greatest city in the world. Boston Tea Party. Boston Cream Pie. Boston Rob Mariano. Birthplace of Benjamin Franklin.

Food and nightlife is quite special here.

Everybody goes down to look at the six Super Bowl trophies while we eat Captain Crunch out of the Stanley Cup.

Up 3-0 in games and in game 7 aaaannndddd CHOKE. The birthplace of Ben but in a show of his future brilliance he got his ass out of that shiathole and moved to a quality city.

Philly Beer Week is events at bars and restaurants, so the booze laws don't really apply.

The taxes on beer in the city are a little ridiculous but Philly is hardly the only place where that's true.

No you can't, Princess Sindey and the rest of Gary's Girlfriends lost all claim to the Stanley Cup when they lost game 7 at home to the #8 seed

True story. Visited the University of Pittsburgh and left after an hour because the school was awful and everthing smelled like urine.

I can support them by buying in Delaware, and I'd rather have Delaware receive all of the taxes on the purchases, too.
