@landsnark - *Boroughs -- like the districts, not the author.
I'd take that a step further and it should be illegal for any pedestrian to solicit funds from a driver stopped at an intersection, by they homeless, or a firefighter. Half the city can't use a turn signal properly, so what chance do we have if they're digging in their pockets or purses when the light turns green?
It's more of a traffic safety issue than a public nuisance. $0.02.
Issue#1 - Sounds like it was oversold, which can understandably happen with any new event. Based on the local-focus for beer, etc., seems like hearts were in the right place. Didn't go, and can't say I'd be happy about paying for next-to-nothing, but there's always next year.
Issue #2 - Censoring negative comments on your FB wall undermines credibility, is easily avoidable, and should be PR 101. Respond, take ownership, and move on, but don't censor comments from your own customers, whose money you now have, and who have legitimate gripes about what went down. Bad form.
Nationals like Victory & Stone cost more to get here to be sure, but they have scale that our locals don't, bringing their per-unit production costs well under local operations like Holy City.
That said, pint prices vary around town. I've had Holy City for cheaper elsewhere. I'd look to Triangle to explain that one, not the brewers.
Maybe these car rides will serve as the epilogue for her book: "I Am the Putt-Putt Queen: A Laughably Premature Memoir"
