Thanks for that valuable contribution. Very illuminating!

All bets are off when 500 people show up and all want something. The servers may struggle... slightly. But it's fun so I roll with it.

I can't tolerate sitting with an empty glass while server after server walks by without asking if I'd like another. They always appear very busy so losing my business isn't going to hurt them and I have found enough other places that sell fantastic beer and seem quite happy to take my money. I read of many great events being held at Volo but I know I'll probably be disappointed so I choose to go elsewhere instead. On the upside some of the other beer bars in the area are slow on the days when Volo is swamped with an event and I can get some great service at them instead.
To each his own.

Not to be completely snarky about it - but where the heck are you sitting in a bar the size of Volo that you can't get a servers attention?
I haven't had that issue there, and perhaps it's a personal preference thing but I actually prefer having to signal the waitstaff, or make eye contact or something rather than at other places where they come by ever ten seconds or practically stand on your table if you have an empty glass for more than two seconds.
