It was about the right time. It was just yesterday when we were talking about it with some friends and we were about to contact Spyros to ask about it, when the announcement was released. As we have stated at the past, OpenBeer Event, is a periodic event which gathers a lot of beer lovers.
The 17th OpenBeer event is going to take place on the 22nd of May, as the major organizer Spyros Papaspyropoulos announced through the events site (www.openbeerevent.com)
For those who are not familiar with the event, there is a “holy” procedure. Spyros is setting the date and time, usually round 9pm. For a week he accepts suggestions for the place on Faceboook fan page or the site. The criteria’s are the following:
a. Be in Athens.
b. Be close to public transport for easy access (Max 500m).
c. Be “friendly” towards our friends with special needs, so not many stairs or no stairs is even better.
d. Be open from 20:00 onwards.
e. Serve Beer! Lot’s of it!!
When the deadline is over, a poll among the suggested venues is held in order to establish the place which will host the event. The poll is for about a week (this time until 17th May)
Lot of businesses that hosted the OpenBeer Event had made special offers for the people that will be there. They can be easily recognized by a stamp which will be on a noticeable part (ex. hands) of their body. Some had their stamp on their forehead..
To suggest your favorite venue, just fill the form on the events site.
