Opening day!

I'm making a trip to the faire with my friend Kimmy this year for opening day. Anyone else going? I'd totally be down for a meetup :)

W00t! I've only been there once, so can someone suggest a meeting time & place for a meetup?

Well, if you're there early, there's always Opening Gate or the dim bulb & Bull Pub right after the gates open. (It's the closest pub to the gate--near the Music Pavilion). Any other suggestions?

I don't think we'll make it by gate open. We'll be driving 6 hours with a 1 year old, so we're likely to have several unexpected stops.

A little later in the day, say around noon or 1 should work.

Hiya!

Something I thought some folks here might enjoy.  NYRF is now sporting a pub crawl twice daily.  Five pubs, five beers, 75-90 minutes.  Your own entertainment and tour.  Costs extra, of course, but there's a special pewter pin I believe you also get.

Ok, let's meet up at the C0ck & Bull Pub at 10:30.  I don't have a RF pin, so I'll be looking for those who do. Or Goody, I know what she looks like :)

Woo I can't wait for next weekend :) I think I'm going to do the pub crawl too.

That's only what's included in the price. ;D  If those on the tour want to partake in more beverages during that time, not one person will stop them. :)

I kinda figured that. I'd need at least 5 beers at each pub.
30 shcarroles for 5 beers is about right if you include tips.
What times are you guys going to have the tours?

Check at the Info Booth when you sign up.  They'll be a sign.  Starts at the dim bulb & Bull Pub which should also have a sign.  We're thinking 12:00 or 12:30 and 3:00 or 3:30.
