Just stumbled across this post over at Joel Spolsky's programming blog.
The importance of eating together with your co-workers is not negotiable, to me. It’s too important to be left to chance.

15th 18th is fast approaching!*

16 19th look like? Will you celebrate your rebate with Champagne and Epoisses, or tighten your belt with tapwater and dry rinds?

Post your ideal apres-filing menu, along with your estimated payment or return (the contest is anonymous, but you wouldn't cheat on your taxes, right?). A crack team of financial experts headed by culture's own long-suffering bookkeeper Roland Timmons will select one winner each each from the most luxurious, and the most abject proposals.
Just a couple of quick pictures from the exhibition floor: there are over 4,000 folks crammed in here, all of them brewers except me (and Steph).
