The Decatur Beer festival announced this morning that they will be offering 300 $100 VIP tickets to the October 18th event.
A summary in the latest Decatur Focus – not yet online – states that VIPs will be let into the Festival an hour early at 11a, receive exclusive craft beers, have an “exclusive” entrance and receive complementary snacks. All this same info is shown throughout the graphic shown above.
Reminder: the non-exclusive $40 tickets go on sale next Monday at noon and will likely sell out in 15-20 minutes if prior years are any indication.
So the Decatur Book Festival schedule is posted online and printed versions have begun to appear around town (I know that Little Shop and Decatur Library have had them).
If you’re a seasoned DBF patron (the DBF posted a listicle “17 Signs You’re a Seasoned DBF Fan” on their blog to help you determine this) you know that you need a game plan to make the most out of your weekend. Just wandering the market on the Square in the hot Georgia sun is fun, but one can only eat so many King of Pops before you run out of dollar bills and the children begin crying because you’ve eaten all the Chocolate Sea Salt pops. You need to figure out what interests you beforehand to really get your money’s worth. (Harhar)
So here we go – What talks are you planning on attending this weekend? What non-discussing events caught your eye this year? Share what you’ve already uncovered and help your fellow DM readers get a handle on this wonderfully large Labor Day Weekend event!
