UP NEXT :: CONCERTS, COOLERS AND A COASTER
Posted by The Beast on July 22, 2015
Three guys walk into an Umbrella Bar. The first orders a Long Trail Ale, and the bartender checks his ID and hands him a cup. The second guy orders jerk chicken and the bartender points to the grill outside. The third guy orders a roller coaster. The bartender says he doesn’t know that drink, then chuckles and says “you’re in the wrong place – head to Snowshed.”
The Beast has been telling you that this summer was going to have a new level of energy, and the next few weeks are proof positive.
Don’t miss any of the action coming up this summer in Killington.
