We know that many of you are hoping for this to be our “exposé” in to some of the claims that have been made about Tour de Terrace. For a number of reasons, one being that we have several pending public records requests, that story will not be published until after Tour de Terrace is over. We are dedicated to collecting all of the facts before we present them to our readers. Maybe it’s better we put the politics on hold for the weekend anyway.
What we do know is that while Big E’s won’t be running the beer garden this year (see our previous story) there still will be a beer garden. Tour de Terrace organizers have plenty of volunteers that will be serving Red Hook, Widmer Brothers and Bud Light. Both Tour de Terrace organizers and Big E’s say they will be back in 2012. Another point that Tour de Terrace organizers emphasized when we met with them earlier this week was that money made from the beer garden helps fund much of the festival, including the free entertainment and the nearly $10,000 in additional insurance costs this year.
The beer garden will be open from 5-11pm on Friday, 11am-11pm on Saturday and 11am-6pm on Sunday as is located in the north field at 56th Ave W and 224th St SW.
