    Question Local services??

    My careing wife, Bette, axed a good question today. (she's only allowed one per day since she is blond) Her question, Will we be able to buy beer near the rally site? Meaning will we be able to stock the cooler for our camp? Is the Lima area dry? Liquor stores near by?

    Looking forward to seeing everyone there. If you're not there, well we won't see you.

    On the backside of that carryout is the State Liquor store, Larry's Liquor.
    Also most Grocery stores sell Beer by the six pack or case. Beer is readily available but need a state store for hard liquor.

    30 pack

    I always like the look on the beer guys face when I drop a 30 pack in the Jessie's!

    Add ice, instant cooler!

    Support the BMW MOA & Buy at the Beer Garden

    I would encourage attendees to buy their beer at the beer garden. We will have Microbrew and Macrobrew.... The money supports the rally & helps to pay for the entertainment.

    If you prefer your own brands, then there is a Super-WalMart within walking distance, and a Ray's Marketplace about a half mile away.

    Sue, The reason I ask is based on my assumption that I (we) would not be able to buy the beer in the garden and take it back to our tent. Am I mistaken? We like to have cold beer in the morning over our cornflakes

    Just a few more days'!

    Oops - sorry, you are right. You'd have to bring your own if that was the case.
    Sorry.

    So Beer that is bought in the Beer garden will have to stay in the Beer Garden? Is the Beer Garden and the Entertainment where Thurogood is playing Connected?


    I know in the confusion of Charleston 03, I was able to carry beer around from the beer tent, but not a fair comparison to this setup.

    Beer Tent and Thorogood Show

    Good Question, Grasshopper.......

    We made the beer garden big enough to encompass the WHOLE grass area in front of the stage. Folks in the bleachers and lawn seats will actually be "inside" the beer garden. It's all about priorities, donchaknow.
