Denver Happy Hour (Nov. 7)

Postby SurfNTurf » Fri Oct 25, 2013 2:30 pm

Hey everyone,

November is rapidly approaching and it's time for our next monthly Happy Hour. I think MonGoose and semitrueskerm want to do their Dance Off awards at this shindig. Or so I've been told. For some reason they reached out to my assistant, Mandy, instead of the Happy Hour Czar. (That's me.) If we keep having MonGoose-centric events we'll have to rename it the MonGoose Ego-Boosting Happy Hour. Either way, semitrueskerm has a bacon costume.

We've been dying to host one of these things at the new Jagged Mountain Brewery (yes, named after THAT Jagged Mountain), but it seems there's a delay in their opening. Soooo...

WHAT: Denver Happy Hour - November Edition
WHEN: 6-10 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7
WHERE: Our Mutual Friend Malt & Brew, 2810 Larimer
Many Miles to Go (Blog)

“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

Things I have "assisted" Goldy with over the years:
1. Carrying him up El Diente. "Hold me, Bill. I'm scared."
2. Teaching him rhythm. Only boy from the South I've met that can't dance.
3. Teaching him game. Before me, he couldn't even score with internet dating.
4. Keeping his fragile ego in check. Now THIS deserves a trophy, Nick.

So, yes, I am proud to call myself Goldy's assistant. He needed it.

Mongoose and I (SemiTrue) have been verifying votes for validity this past week, thus, we've dropped the ball on Dance Off updates.

Yes, the plan is for the 2013 Trophy Presentation to occur at this Thursday night event. I will plan to be there, though I cannot be certain until 24 hours before.

Regardless, all winners, non-winners and whiners are welcome to join and perhaps we'll all get jiggy wit it at the bar...or later in the night.

Until then... Cheerio.

It means The Mongoose's ego is having a hard time dealing with another loss. So he must have called for a recount, ya know, hanging chads and all.

C'mon now, you know all the .com SS must include dogs or guns. Plus this one has that pesky off route forum where all the good ones go to die.
