Sitting at Opal Divines — where (need I point this out?) the wifi and beer are WAY better than the convention center — I keep hearing the story of a keg that somehow rolled down stairs and took out a table. In the words of one tavern worker: it was the event of my life, man.
You need more kegs rolling down stairs.

Walking into a loading dock full of nerdz drinking miller lite makes me feel like I’m walking into someone else’s grad school post seminar party.
No disrespect. I’m socially awkward too. The thing is, I was drunk at most of my grad seminars, so it make me feel like I’m at a perverse disadvantage when I’m walking into that shit sober.
But that was a really nice… uh… neon rainbow thing.
