Denver Happy Hour (December)

Postby SurfNTurf » Wed Nov 21, 2012 10:41 am

Well, these things were rebooted exactly one year ago, and in honor of the anniversary we'll return to where it all began. This month's Denver Happy Hour will be at Falling Rock Taphouse.

No fancy giveaways or fundraisers this month, just good old fashioned drinking and socializing. From what I understand, going forward the First Ascent raffles will be a quarterly thing.

Falling Rock also has excellent food -- you can't go wrong with their chicken fingers, unless you're one of those weird vegan sociopaths.

WHAT: December Denver Happy Hour
WHEN: 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13*
WHERE: Falling Rock Taphouse, 1919 Blake Street (Downtown, near Coors Field)

*Not the first Thursday this month. I figured with the rash of recent HHs, a little bit of a break is in order.

**Also, kansas is throwing a hissy fit because he can only do the 13th.

Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Looking forward to seeing everyone again. You guys have a good climb in Mexico and we'll celebrate when you get back.

Why thank you for your concern! But I'm actually doing quite well financially speaking, especially as I was just able to find $10K+ savings in my budget over the next few years. \:D/
