Irony at the EPIC Fest 2013

This past weekend, if you went to the EPIC Fest booth *inside* the festival grounds -- you know, where they were selling EPIC T-shirts -- you could have picked up a coupon book for $10 (Greenster, if I remember correctly), filled with discount coupons.

Amongst these coupons was a 2-for-1 for entry into the EPIC Fest.

But wait! You would already have been *inside* the EPIC fest.

Which is too bad, because the adult entry is $21. Two adult entries is $42. Plus coupon book for $10 makes it $52. BUT if you bought the book first, you could immediately use the 2-for-1 coupon and save $21, reducing your net two-person entry cost to $31.

Net savings $11 and you get a coupon book for even more savings. They could have moved so many books that weekend.

  1. Re: the coupon books for sale INSIDE the fest -- how could you write this and not make at least ONE pun about the EPIC fail that represented? I wonder if any quick-thinking hustlers bought the book and went outside to sell the discount coupon to incoming eaters for, I dunno, $5, to recoup some of their entry fee?

    1. I thought about it, but that would have been too much of a low blow. :)
