Reading Wesley Loy's Anchorage Daily News story about this yesterday, one doesn't get an accurate impression of what this must have been like - at all. The story just sat there yesterday, gathering very few comments. But after frsbdg put up his Kos diary, with a link to Loy's story, it picked up quite a few. Here's one, from AK_Finngirl:
I was at the event. It was BEYOND lame. I assumed that there would be enough people there so I could watch inconspicuously, but there was practically no one there. like the other posters said, MAYBE 50. Of course the news article says it was about 200 throughout the whole four hours, and I didn't stay.
The entertainment/singer/comedian was frankly, bizarre. The event had all the energy of a dying tree stump.
Here's frsbdg's YouTube of the t-shirt counter and almost-empty bunker:
I've seen more people in that bunker waxing skis on rainy weekday. You can go to his diary and listen to the lame band. I'd rather not post it.
