Regarding the price of beer issue... All I know is, coming from NYC, the average bar price of non-happy hour Budweiser is $5 for a 12 ounce bottle... go over to Madison Square Garden and you will find pints for $7.25... we may not like it, but we accept it because we want our beer, and by doing so, we support these prices and that in turn supports the fact that the market can bear it, so why wouldn't they charge it in free market USA. $6 a beer at a festival for pints of Bud AND/OR crazy fancy microbrews seems completely normal to me, if not extrordinary actually, but then again, i guess maybe being from NYC desensitizes me to an extent, since everything here costs an assload of cash and that's just the way it is if you want to live here.
^^^^ beer in Jackson Mississippi is priced the same - I mean - I may be able to get draft Bud for $3.00 a cup in a bar around here - but it is $4-5 a bottle and up depending on the club (not that we have a whole lot of those around here)
Dude, I live outside of DC, we found the beer prices really quite lovely. We pay the same price at baseball games in a stadium that is ready to fall down and probably more once they build the new shiny place.
Darn Websense, would love to see more of these pictures, though I did like Officer Kitty Corncat... accessories and all! Thank you! ;D

Or grocery store prices if ya brought them yourself. Oddly enough, I was walking into Centeroo on Saturday afternoon/evening and I had sort of a big bag with me that had a bedroll in it. The security guy was so skeptical of it that he missed the fact I had a can of beer in each hand. I walked right past him before I even realized I'd just brought two beers in. Maybe he didn't even care.

^Sunday night, at Plantation (the REAL (wink wink)) Shakedown, for a small donation of whatever you put forward (I gave $5), you could drink out a keg of New Castle. On Fakedown people were giving away shots of vodka and gin.
I felt like I jumped off a building the next day, haha.

random comment - I was once stopped by an undercover officer with the last name of Anderson and for the remainder of our conversation I kept calling him "Mr. Anderson" in a creepy voice, but either he didn't find my Matrix reference funny or I was trying an expired joke.
