tell me about your keg exeriences.

i love the teme camp list. it's a tremendous help.

i'm also not opposed to doing it at places deeper in the city, the more "residential" areas, if you will.

i'll be in touch with you guys, lydia & ring, as well as a gentleman who emailed me over the weekend.

yay stories! yay shisha!
