Are people not chasing calendar winter snowflakes allowed to attend calendar winter happy hours?

If not, can wait until April. Thanks

Brian, I'd be offended if you didn't come.
“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Well now, I wouldn't want to offend anybody.

We have a super duper exclusive and special area reserved under "14ers" from 6-10p. Mentioning Jeff's name will get you nothing. Mentioning my name will get you excellent service. You're welcome.

Is that the sound of a gauntlet hitting the ground I hear?

This fits into my skidule nicely.

I'm looking forward to seeing you there.

Doing my best to try and make this. Looks unlikely but if I make it everyone has to wear a name tag.

I will be there and I look forward to seeing everyone.

Kush, I hope you can make it and be sure to bring patches.

Also, BenFromtheEast owes me a few beers so he will not be in attendance.

Highland Tap & Burger is an excellent choice. The Rocky Mountain burger (Seasoned Rosen Colorado ground lamb, Haystack Mountain goat cheese, tomato mint relish with wild baby arugula) sounds delicious.

And per their Yelp site, off-street parking is an option. Parallel parking can be confusing, frustrating sometimes. Places like the Highlands or Capitol Hill are just a bit scary. Thank you, Jeff for this month's site selection.
