Town of Mammoth Lakes
The Town was full of happy people on Blues weekend. Saw tons of people enjoying themselves and ditto for all the locals I know.
Which I guess keeps them too busy to post on the SW Grumpy Board.
attended my 4th beer festival. my thoughts: seemed a bit crowded, always a line to sample beer. more law enforcement walking the festival than in past years. more males than females, 65% male and 35% female breweries held fast to 2 oz. samples, not 4 oz. pours. fewer in German… Read more »
I’ve been to 10 festivals: #1) Dissappointing that right after the beer sampling was complete at least half of the crowd left….obviously just drunks and not real blues fans. #2) Too expensive; the ticket use to be $35 now $65 for Saturday….they want $175 for next years festival when this… Read more »
…and I quote myself with my above comment….quote “and since $$$ is all the TOML cares about ….”….there you have it….from $35.00 last year to $65.00 this year and then up to $175.00 next year….pay to park on a city street.. increased police presance to try to control the rowdy… Read more »
Not being a big beer drinker, I arrived at 3:00 to start beer tasting. Could always find a brewer with no line, but there were some brewers with small lines. Or, quite often, it looked like a line but was actually people standing and waiting to drain their beer glass… Read more »
Why are these events not held out at Shady Rest Park?
Guess everyone is different….I enjoyed hearing the music from a distance at my house. And I don’t see how Canyon being closed would effect Minaret at all. Lake Mary road to Main street worked just fine. Or Forest Trail. Minaret doesn’t even go the same direction as Canyon. Do you… Read more »
Anyone else get a little tired of the constant THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP over a half mile away from the event site? At 1030pm on Friday eve it was louder than my TV next to my bed. I have to get up early and am usually asleep by 9… Read more »
A citizen….I got bad news for you….The loud music….the THUMP….THUMP….THUMP heard throughout the night ?….It includes a lot of people….partiersdrinking booze…..and smoking weed….with money to spend…..and since that’s about all the TOML cares about,you citizens up there just have to deal with the annoyance keeping you up all night long….sorry….
Wayne, that’s what a large precentage of this world does to enjoy themselves. I say crank it up and enjoy!
Trouble……Me and one of my neighbors have a way of “shutting things down” when this happens late-night in my neighborhood,but probably a good idea to leave some guessing to what it is….maybe just say,kinda like how you end your post…..”let it fly and enjoy “…
I can’t hear you!
You sound jealous.
A town sponsored party to celebrate what? 30 years of mismanagement leading to bankruptcy and a 40 million dollar judgement. Yippee! A party to celebrate the same pool of leaders who have so little concern for the working public that they would send a press release that pleads with locals:… Read more »
