Feeling anxious and parched? That's because you simply cannot wait for the MALT BALL: Portland's best bands and best craft brewers together at last in one super fun all-day event! It's all going down on SATURDAY, MARCH 24, and you can get the full schedule of bands and beer here along with tickets—because you can bet your sweet heinie it's gonna sell out!

HOWEVER! If you're feeling particularly stingy with your meager wad of cash (or just want to drink suds and listen to music for free) I'm giving away TWO tickets to the Malt Ball! (A $40 value!) All you have to do is email me here with "I WANT THOSE MALT BALL TIX!" in the subject line (include your real name), and give a half-assed reason why you need them so badly. I will not accept full-assed answers. Take that however you like. The deadline is MONDAY at NOON, and I'll email back the winners!

UPDATE: We have a winner! Thanks to everyone who entered!

See you guys at the MALT BALL: The best beers... the best bands... the best time EVER!
