- Hop N' Barley Beer Festival
I went there last year and it was a lot of fun! I have bought early bird tickets (special cheaper pricing) PLUS got a group discount for buying multiple tickets! Last year, the regular price for a ticket was $40 plus taxes and fees, which came out to just over $45 per person. The early bird tickets I bought are $35 per person and including taxes and fees, come to just under $40 per person. With the group discount, I paid just around $35 per ticket including all taxes and fees. Awesome deal! Anybody interested, please IM me. Schedule: While the gates open at 10 AM, the beer starts pouring at noon until 4:30 PM. Grub: There's food for sale from many participating vendors. Transportation: I'll be taking bus 17 from and to Diridon Station. Drinking Etiquette: PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY! See y'all there! CHEERS! UPDATE: All my early bird group tickets are sold out!

- Fieldwork in the Summer!
Everybody loves Fieldwork and Matt didn't include it in his peninsula beer crawl. Let's enjoy some IPAs in the summer sun at their San Mateo beer garden. I'll take the 9:51 AM Caltrain from Diridon. Will get off at Hillsdale and visit Blue Bottle before heading over to Fieldwork. You can order Roam Burgers at the Fieldwork location. We'll decide if we wanna hit some more spots later depending on the group.
