Well, Lincoln wants to change all that by creating a boozy bar camp where you get to have all the fun. But there are a couple catches: The "camp" isn't in the woods, and you will probably wind up learning something (and not just contracting giardia from the stagnant swimming hole.)
Quoth the press release:
Co-owner David Welch will serve as camp counselor, guiding participants through the basics of stocking a home bar, history of the cocktail, how spirits are made, and recipes for some classic drinks. After the session, campers will be treated to a cozy family-style meal prepared by executive chef and co-owner Jenn Louis, complete with cocktail pairings and a good buzz.
So, there will likely be no campfires, but I'm sure if things go well there could be a rousing sing-along of "Kumbaya".
Two camps will occur—One on Saturday, October 16th, and one on Saturday, October 30th. Cost is $125 for knowledge, booze, and eats. Ghost stories will be gratis (as long as you're the one telling them).
Someone's drinkin' m'lord! Kumbaya! Oh looooord! Kumbaya!
