I got burned by this. Was going to take the kids to the Penn St game via the family pack ($20 ticket including hot dog and drink), and when I was finally ready to confirm a few days later I was shocked to find only singles available.

In general, make friends with your local store.  It doesn't have to be the highbrow beer store, it can be your neighborhood chain grocer; the grocer isn't as concerned about how much money you're spending on beer every week.  Ask them if they can get things, or if you know something is coming out, give them a heads up a few weeks out and ask if they're getting it, and if so, they could save you some.  I've found that even if they aren't beer fans themselves, if you're nice they'll ask their rep if they can get some.  This won't get you things that are brewery-only, but should cover pretty much anything that sees distribution.

With Pliny in particular, good luck.  They distribute to CA and Philly, that's it, from what I know.  If you're willing to trade someone from those areas, check out some of the beer trading forums on facebook, either national groups or local (try searching for Sacramento Beer as an example for a group in the Russian River distribution area).  Denver beer, especially things like WeldWorks, Casey, Black Project, etc. carries a lot of value in trades.

Depending on your hotel, check out The Ride's football shuttle.  We took it from/to the  Sheraton a few years ago and it worked out great.

Have you tried calling the front desk?  The local folks are often helpful and/or ignorant of extortionary cancellation policies. "My plans have changed and I need to cancel..."

I don't have enough points to post a new thread, but OT: 10% off zingermans mail order if you have a umich alumni membership.

No idea if this is a limited offer or something I've not stumbled across before

An easy way to get behind the WSJ paywall is to Google search for the article title.  The first WSJ should let you view the entire article.

Don't skimp on the "main" stroller.  Picked up a not-inexpensive BOB stroller, and that thing was spectacular.  It's a jogging stroller, not that it was ever used for that function, but the agility was good enough for downtown Chicago, while it also had no issue going offroad through fields.

If you or your wife are tall, make sure that any stroller (even the umbrella stroller) doesn't make you hunch over too much.  Makes a huge difference.

From the main page ( click on the links explorer link. It's at the bottom of the box on the left hand side with your stats in it.  It will open a new page.  On that new page, open every single link (~20).  Once you've done that, go back to the main page and click on update sub karma, and then click on uupdate rating.

Never ate there in college (early 90's).  Same with Angelos, just wasn't in the budget.  Gumby's 5 for $25 was the high life for us, when we wanted to splurge.
