PBW 2008 - Friday March 7th Schedule
The first official day of Philly Beer Week is finally upon us. After all the hype of the last year, or maybe the hype of the last couple of months, we're gonna finally find out what it's all about. Question is, will the real stories only be told after midnight? (sorry, that wasn't great, but I won't delete it)
So begins my daily reminder to you of what is scheduled two days forward. Trust me, I sympathize. The schedule is so overwhelmingly large to try and make sense of everything going on as you attempt to narrow it down to the one or two events you eventually try to get to. This will hopefully give you a slimmer view of the schedule and one last opportunity to change your mind! I will also denote where I am attempting to be each day.
I've taken liberties to modify the descriptions for each event to conserve space. As always, refer to the official schedule of record over at PBW 2008 website for complete details.
