N, Lise, James and I spent Saturday afternoon at the Brewfest at The Oregon Gardens.
It was a fun afternoon, but oh my word! So many people!
Turned out, we just thought it was crowded when we arrived at 4:20. By the time 7 PM rolled around, it was nearly impossible to move (except to the beat of the live music). Near the end of our afternoon, we thought about navigating from one end of the pavilion to the other via the outside route. We had to nix that idea once we spotted the roped off areas prohibiting escape from most of the exits.
Yes, it's true, I'm not used to crowds, but I have to admit it does offer up some great people watching opportunities. Like the wife who returned to her husband only to find her beer glass nearly empty. "What happened to the rest of it?" Silly question and a silly look on his face!
So much good beer all in one place! If there were a few more food options, it would've been even better.
