While almost anything goes within the walls of the Saint Louis Skatium, a couple of the Missouri laws that seem to exist simply to limit fun still have to be followed...Or the Skatium staff has to give the appearance that laws are being followed.
What I am trying to get at is the fact that around 1AM, the Skatium has to pretend to stop serving alcoholic beverages for a couple hours. Now, before you start throwing a tantrum, please note that this has happened the past two years. Technically, no alcohol is supposed to be distributed after 1AM, but as most of you know, that didn't stop beer from quietly exchanging hands at the bar.
What I recommend you do if you want to continue ingesting beer throughout the night is consider bringing a case of beer or two with you to the Skatium. This will help your desire to drink for two reasons:
A). The "stop serving at 1AM" rule won't interrupt your fun if you have your own stash.
B). While PBR is donating beer and we are trying to secure more free beer from other beer makers, last year's crowd inhaled two kegs in a few measly hours. We may run out of free beer, and while we will be happy to make a beer run if necessary, I encourage you to prepare yourself for the event that we run low on beer at some point during our 24-hour party.
Now you know.
I hope all of you are getting excited. This Lock-In, like every Lock-In, is going to be a damn good time.
