I don't see how they're going to regulate it unless try hand out vouchers like for the meals. I also love how they didn't mention that until after you've purchased the ticket. It's still a good deal though.

Just realized that since my lady doesn't really drink much that I will be able to get some extra beers if needed! Alright alright alright.

10 beers a day isn't that awful, but I am disappointed since this was billed as free unlimited beer. That's a major reason why I went the PIP route. I was also hoping that the free meals would come in the form of vouchers you could use at any vendor, a little worried about what will be catered and how that will affect my viewing schedule. We'll see how it goes, I may not do PIP in the future.

10 beers a day isn't enough? Really? $180 worth of beer? I've never PIPeed, so I never grew accustomed to the never-ending lone star. I guess I can see how y'all feel like something has been taken from you, but seriously... dry your eyes and hide a flask in your panties.

Yeah I am not too thrilled with this change but I won't make a final decision till after the fest. Oh and my PIP pass did not come in the mail.

I totally agree. "10 beers a day" should have been stated from the beginning. I'm still excited to see a lot of acts but this does put a tarnish on the weekend. My friends, who are able to drink more than the average bear, are PISSED. Club Deville is definitely going to have a crowd on their hands tomorrow/today. People, like myself, who have to really save their pennies for a PIP, should have been able to make a better informed decision from the get go on where they wanted to spend their money.

I honestly don't think it's THAT bad, especially because they said that they roll over. So maybe if you decide to go easy on Friday, you can go all out Saturday. Idk...
What concerns me more is the catered meals thing. Two years ago we were stuck eating Chipotle for 2 days and I haven't eaten there since (well, I hadn't before then either, but still...). Last year we had the choice of actual vendors and that was nice. But this year it says catered meals, so I have a feeling its going back to the previous style. I understand that they probably just want it contained more, but the whole point of going to the festival is to be out watching the shows. I'm just glad they are still letting us leave the PIP are with the beers, or at least, for now... I think people would flip their shit if they made us stay in there to drink. So at least we have that going for us.

Apparently TABC has cracked down on the unlimited free drinking thing. I've always wondered how they were getting around that regulation (not to mention how much it must end up costing). Since I don't really drink all that much anymore, I decided the PIP wasn't the best thing for me this year. Even so, for once in my life, it would be truly nice to go to a festival where ONE beer didn't cost the equivalent of a freakin' 6-pack!
