A ticket gets each participant a booklet of coupons, specials and discounts, which will include a meal at a selection of restaurants and beers at several quality beer bars. Locations will include potential lunch stops, coffee breaks, beer, record stores, clothing shops and more—the full Pilsen experience. Tickets are available here.
