Idaho debauchery

"A reveler uses the backside of a port-o-potty for a restroom during the 16th Annual Mountain Brewer's Beer Fest in Idaho Falls, Idaho, Saturday, June 5, 2010."

Two weeks ago I made my first visit to Idaho.

I made the venture north with some friends for the 16th Annual Mountain Brewer's Beer Fest in Idaho Falls.

It was a lot of fun, but I wondered what this event would have been like had it been on the east coast.

To sum it up, buses and taxis dumped off around 5,000 people to a small field in Idaho Falls for a $20 all-you-can-drink event.

There were many brewers from Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and beyond pouring their classic and new beers.

I had assumed it would be wild. You know, Kentucky Derby type debauchery.

But to no avail, this was about the most "out of control" thing I witnessed.

Obviously these people never witnessed or heard of the Preakness infield. I mean, who could forget the 2007 Running of the pot-o-potties instant classic?
