After months of anticipation and preparation, the Great GoogaMooga is officially underway! And already, Twitter is overflowing with people complaining about epic beers lines, and a broken scanner system. As one colleague mentioned, standing on line is what New Yorkers DO. But there may be an even darker crisis afoot: "Really @GoogaMooga a food festival with no toilet paper? And it's only noon..." tweeted Annie O'Neil.
Googamooga is a bust so far. turns out people want beer. & they want it first. their weird card instead of cash system doesnt work. Shocker

Beer/wine situation at #googamooga one of the most impressively poorly thought out experiences ever. Everyone in lines, nobody drinking.

Beer and wine fail. High tech systems are down and the big beautiful tents are empty. patrons are thirsty! #googamooga
