Cincinnati Winter Beerfest
« on: February 13, 2016, 09:45:56 PM »
Anyone else coming in for Cincy Winter Beerfest? Checked into the festival to get our passes early, then checked into our hotel to wait until fest starts at 730. There is probably about 150 people in line to check into the hotel right now. Glad we checked in an hour ago

ha I knew it! no i'm not in town-wish I was.

The Millennium is notorious for ridiculous check in lines that go out the door when there's any type of event going on.  when we were there this last time on New Years, we checked in about 3pm with no line, and by 4pm the line was out the door.

Yes we had the same situation for Beerfest last year. But it is cheap and has a Skywalk to the convention center, so here we are again. Slow service at check in , slow service in the bistro. And now it's getting busy, time to go back up the the room and sample some more from home
