Big Improvements -  In an effort to help keep lines shorter on the day of the event, they are asking that you pre-purchase your tokens. If pre-purchased you can come to Brewgaloo up to one hour earlier, (1pm) to pick up your tokens, wristband, cup and have first access to all of the food trucks. You may pre-purchase tokens online or go to Ray Price Harley Davidson or Galatea Boutique. When you pre-purchase at Ray Price or Galatea boutique, all you need to do the day of the event is get your wristband and cup. If bought online, and if you want to pick up your tokens in advance, go to Ray Price Harley Davidson or Galatea Boutique to pick up your tokens. Purchase Tokens Here.

Prices: Cars $25, SUV's $30. Contact: Blaise Waters at tennisboy30@gmail.com or (305)903-1550 (texting is best!) For more info click here.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
