If you are planning to hit any of the remaining nights of NERAX at the Dilboy VFW in Davis Sq. I highly reccomend getting there atleast 20 minutes before the door opens especially if you don’t already have tickets. Advance/Will Call ticket holders go to the head of line –which makes sense, that’s why you bought the tickets early, right?– and once the Dilboy reaches capacity they cut off the line until people leave and they can let folks in.
That’s what happened to me. I got in line a bit late and I was about a dozen people from the door when they hit capacity and that was at the very beginning. I decided since there was a good chance I’d be waiting quite a while before I got in I decided to call it a night and head home. I needed to make it an early night anyway and having to wait that much longer would have shrunk the time I had in the event to an hour if I was lucky.
Now, unfortunately my schedule doesn’t allow me the chance to get back there while it’s on, but that shouldn’t stop you! NERAX is a great event and a great cause that needs the support.
If you are going I found this gem of info on the NERAX website this morning:

So there it is. I hope if you have the time you do go. A friend who was smart enough to buy an advance ticket for last night said there were some amazing beers.
