The festival is from 8-11pm unless you purchase VIP tickets in which case you’re granted entrance an hour earlier than everyone else and can begin participating in all the festivities aka you get dibs on drinking before the masses stampede in.

Hot Off the Presses: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Dane DeHaan talk “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”

VIP also includes food and air conditioned bathrooms so I guess that right there, makes it worth the extra bucks you have to pay.

I don’t know if I’m more excited about the brews of the food.

I mean, The food menu is nothing to yawn at:

– Chicken, Avocado and Bacon Mini-Tacos with Chipotle Aioli
-Vegetarian House-Made Kettle Chip Nacho Boats
-Arepas Topped with Pulled Pork and Pickled Onions & Cilantro
-“Sloppy Joe” Sliders with Pickle Chips and Onions
-Linguica Sausage and Green-Chile Redskin Potato Pinchos with Ale Mustard
