As do a lot of news reporters, bloggers, etc., I have "news feeds" set up through various online services. They're designed to send me a link to anything that should be relevant to beer in, around, or from Baltimore.
My inbox is bursting with news stories about the Preakness and its drunken infield debauchery. They're coming in like machine gun bullets. One of the recent ones said something about someone getting a server to fill up a bucket for $10--a bucket swiped from the Mug Club stand.
I'll be so glad when this balderdash is over.
UPDATE: Apparently the "open bar with long lines and waits" strategy worked. Preliminary reports indicate only 20 ejections, NO arrests, and no riots or other stupidity by sunset.
Drink beer. Win acclaim!
