The meeting point is going to be at the Magic Hat sampling tent. I will be there between 5:15-5:30. As I understand it, the beer fest is going to be in a sectioned off area of the whole Kroger Fest-A-Ville. Meeting at 5:15 will give everybody a little time to get oriented. I will be wearing a black t-shirt and an olive green skirt, probably with sunglasses and my hair pulled back. I'll just keep getting back in the same Magic Hat line for beer until 5:30 ;) Hopefully, this will be a help you find me if we haven't met before.
Did you know the there is a Kentucky Derby Festival Beer Fest (http://discover.kdf.org/events/beerfest/) on the Waterfront on Wednesday? I only found out recently, but I've gotten my tickets and I'm going to check it out.
**If you would like to go, sign up ASAP and we'll work out a good meeting point. Here is a map (http://discover.kdf.org/files/2013/04/kydf545-LR_FAV_map_v8.pdf?&utm_source=internal&utm_medium=desktop&utm_content=hero&utm_campaign=launch_click_trends) that shows exactly where the beer fest is located within the waterfront park complex that is being billed as Kroger's Fest-A-Ville.
