$15 at the door gets you one big Otto’s sausage on a bun (pork or chicken, lots of condiments, plenty of chips) and two drink tokens. Attendees with big beards and big tattoos (the definition of “big” in both cases is solely up to Nat) get an additional drink token. Hint: If the beard is shorter than Nat’s and the tattoo isn’t at least half sleeve, it’s not “big”.
