Intercourse and more in Atlantic City
One of the Saturday sessions for the Atlantic City Beer Festival , “The Celebration of the Suds,” in the New Jersey resort town has sold out, and organizers say tickets are going quickly for the other two sessions.
The festival will be Saturday, March 20, and Sunday, March 21, 2010, at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
The second session on Saturday from 6 to 10:30 p.m. is the one that sold out. The others are Saturday from noon to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5:30 p.m.
Organizers say the 2009 festival sold out early, with more than 15,000 beer lovers attending over the course of the fest. More than 75 brewers and breweries will be there, including Intercourse Brewing Co., named after the Pennsylvania town in which it is based. (What were YOU thinking?).
A variety of entertainment and beer classes are scheduled.
I’ve never been to Atlantic City, but a road trip to this festival would be a great excuse. It’s going on this road tripper’s calendar for next year. After all, I can always win back the cost of the trip in the casinos, right? But then again, I’m not a very good gambler. Maybe I’ll frequent the world-famous and less financially risky Boardwalk and beach.
