Brew Five Three knows the magic recipe for the perfect Pacific Northwest afternoon: beer, music, food, and fun. Some of you out there may be seasoned festival veterans and already have your Saturday all planned out, but for those who will be new to the scene this weekend we’ve got your insider info right here.
We recently sat down with a Broadway Center rep to get all the details on how to make your day drinking extravaganza even more enjoyable. So before you head out with your pretzel necklace and wide brim Coachella hat, be sure to keep these tips in mind:
What to bring
Your ID. Duh. Seriously though, they won’t let you in just because your mustache looks legit and you’ll feel really lame having to turn around at the gate while everyone else has fun. Everyone needs to bring their ID. Even you, grandpa.
A designated driver. Tickets for DDs are only $10 and come with that priceless element called peace of mind.
Your dog. Yes, really! Dawg Town doggie day care will have a splash pool to keep your doogle cool and comfortable.
Be sure to grab a brewer roster on your way in so you know what to go after once you’re inside.
Low back lawn chairs or blanket. It seems obvious but they’re really easy to forget.
Cash. Because we’re not 100% living in the future just yet.
Not your pocket knife. Pretending to be Bear Grylls is great every other day of the year but this day all it’ll get you is a confiscated pocket knife.
A fanny pack. It’ll get you through security quicker than a backpack and it’s a lot easier than stuffing all your things in your pockets.
All the obvious, “I’m gonna be outside all day drinking in the sun and I don’t want to die” stuff. You know what I’m talking about.
