2009_05_16_1508I’m pretty excited about the STL Hops Pinball party on Saturday night, but there are a couple of things I want everyone to know before you head out to CP Pinball.

Everyone please be cool.

While I’ve never had any sort of problem with anyone from here in the past, we’re going to have about 50 people at CP.  We’re all adults, so I shouldn’t have to say this, but I’m going to anyway.  Don’t be an idiot. It’s cool to enjoy yourself, but just be careful, we’re going to be surrounded by over $125,000 worth of pinball equipment.  We’re all here for a good time and to hang out with other beer nerds.   Don’t ruin this event for the rest of us.

I know that the Side Project Brewing release is on Saturday, so do everyone a favor and drink plenty of water and sober up before arriving to CP or the bus.

For the people taking the bus.

The bus will be at the corner of Lafayette Park at Park Ave and Mississippi Ave at 5PM.  The bus will be leaving at close to 5:15.  It will take you up to pinball and you’ll arrive close to 6PM.  The bus will then leave pinball at 10PM and bring you back to Lafayette Park.  There should be plenty of free parking near the park.

Thanks again to STL Brewery Hop for providing transportation for this event. Make sure to check out their website for brewery tours around St. Louis.

If you didn’t buy a ticket, please don’t crash.

While I’m extremely encouraged and excited about the enthusiasm for this party someone has to pay for every person who attends the party.  This place is open two weekends every month, feel free to stop by then. I will have bracelets for people attending so I know who and who should not be attending. This event is SOLD OUT.

Bring a tasting glass.

I’m going to bring a little extra glassware, but not a lot.  I had a sizable amount of my glassware swiped at the last few events, so I’m not bringing as much this time around.  You’re responsible for your own glass.

Don’t arrive hungry.

While Mark from Bigelo’s Bistro will be providing some pizza and some snacks, don’t expect this to be your dinner. Mark generously donates this food and I expect there to be enough for people to snack on, but not enough to fill you up. So, eat a little something before arriving.

If you’re not taking the bus and you’ve had too much, find a ride.

Be safe and be smart, we want you around for the next party. CP isn’t exactly close to home for many of us, so plan on having a ride back home if you’ve had too much to drink.

If you’ve sold your tickets to someone else, make sure I know about it.

Most everyone is a will-call ticket, so I’ll need to know if names have changed. Please send me an email or a private message via the forum if you’ve sold your ticket.


One last thing, I’ll admit up front that this is usually the event where I’m the least social.  I love playing pinball, so I’ll probably be doing that for the entire four hours.  If you have any other additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

2009_05_16_1508After the success of last year’s event, it’s time to have another STL Hops Pinball Party!  This year’s event will take place at at CP Pinball in South Roxana, Illinois on September 25th from 6PM-10PM.

The cost of the event is $12 per person which provides you with all the pinball you can play for 4 hours. We’re going to have a bunch of people bringing different beers to sample and you’re welcome to bring something you’ve been hording as well. We’re also going to have some delicious pizza from Bigelo’s Bistro.

Tickets for this event are being sold through Brown Paper Tickets (click that link!).  Only 40 tickets are being made available at this time, so I wouldn’t wait around to buy them. Be certain to check out some of the photos from Sauce Magazine from last year’s event, it was pretty awesome.

So, a lot of people are saying that September would be a better choice, let’s try this. How about a date of September 25th? Would that work better for people?

2009_05_16_1508I know people have briefly mentioned having another one of these, so I thought I’d gauge the interest from people that may not be posting on the STL Hops Forums.  For those that might have missed the last one, last year STL Hops hosted a beer tasting event at CP Pinball in South Roxana, Illinois.

We rented out the space for four hours and drank all kinds of cool beer, played the jukebox, ate delicious pizza from Bigelo’s Bistro, and played some pinball.  Plus, we did it all for the low, low cost of $12. Check out some of the photos from Sauce Magazine from last year’s event, it was pretty awesome.

Right now, I’m looking at August 28th as the potential date for the event.  I’m curious to know if there is enough interested to make sure that we can afford to rent the place for four hours.  If you’re interested in coming out, vote in the poll below:
