I guess the stress is part of the fun, too.
I'm not really sure how to break this to you.
I guess I'll just come out and say it.
The DaveFest shirts aren't going to be ready for at least a week.
Now, calm down please. The Sun will still rise and set tomorrow. It will probably continue to do so this weekend when DaveFest begins on schedule.
So, after several emails, I think I've got the quantities correct. For the initial order anyway. Any subsequent orders will, quite frankly, be a pain in the ass and I can't guarantee that they'll even happen.
I'm disappointed, of course. I was really looking forward to seeing my likeness adorn the chests of friends and strangers alike this weekend. It would have been surreal and sublime.
But alas, it's not meant to be. Not just yet.
I'm told that the shirts will be ready by next Friday, in time for the final wave of DaveFest when the Rogue beers go on tap.
For those of you holding non-refundable tickets to Louisville for this weekend, let me apologize. Let me also assure you that the trip will still be worthwhile. In the end, it's really about the beer.
In silent protest of this atrocity, my beautiful female readers should feel free to attend the festival shirtless.
