Thanks guys, it means a lot.
The people are what make Barber worth the trip, the venue is secondary.
I'm definitely gonna miss y'all :(

I agree, last year was my first time going. This year, I could take or leave even going to the event. Id just as soon hang out with all my pals the whole time.

Yup, the venue is top drawer and worth any and every effort to be there all by itself. The Vintage Days event simply adds to that.

But you're absolutely right. The DTT People are the real draw... year after year. You could have the party in a swamp... I'd still wanna be there.  ;) 

However, put it all together and it's an unbeatable, unforgettable, nearly unbelievable weekend. That's why we come for 4 days. We can't bear to leave.  :D

We're gonna miss the missing for sure.  :'(

Never hurts, but the nights are usually cool enough by then that they'll be long dormant.
