Texas amateurs can’t run a beer festival
Stick to cattle, Texas! Or, ya know, come to Oregon to see how it’s done by us godless hippie pagans, then go home and apply what you’ve learned. Sheesh, dumbasses. :D
Nearly 20,000 tickets were sold by the organizers of the inaugural Houston Beer Festival, although the festival’s venue only had a capacity of 12,000 people. And that was just the first of many issues that arose at the beer bash on Saturday afternoon, after the embattled organizers had already contested questions about the 501(c)(3) status of the festival’s charity organization and tickets sales that were in direct violation of TABC regulations.
KHOU reported that several attendees were treated for heat exhaustion, a result of standing in a line that stretched for blocks while only a handful of volunteers worked the festival’s sole entrance. Jake Rainey, general manager at the nearby Flying Saucer, was working a booth at the festival and was stunned when he saw how the line had built up in only a short amount of time after the festival opened its doors.
