Bon Voyage Gathering - You're Invited

Now that things are finally coming down to the wire back in Colorado, I think it is time to have a party.  But...there is just one problem...an empty house isn't exactly the best venue for throwing a party.  The lack of tables...and chairs...and just about everything else just won't work for a gathering.

We thought about doing a cruiser style party...those are typically pot-luck affairs where you bring your own favorite drink and some food to share...but I don't think that would work out as well with guests all across the Denver area as it does in a marina or anchorage.

So, we decided to try a hybrid approach.  We are going to try to meet up with a bunch of folks at a new brewpub that recently (at least to me) opened in the area to say farewell over a couple beers.  They have about a dozen different beers on tap at any given time so you should be able to find something to your liking.

If you are hungry, this place doesn't have a kitchen itself but schedules a variety of food trucks to provide the food, and reports are that they are good.  On Sunday it will be Taj Palace (Indian).

If you are reading this and will be in the Denver area on Sunday, March 29th, please drop in.  Here is some information on the Wonderland Brewing Company:

Come join us for a beer, chat about our upcoming adventure, and say bon voyage!

P.S. If you think you might be coming, please let us know so we know how many tables to hoard.  If you don't have other contact information for us, the email form at the bottom of the right hand column will work just fine.


  1. Wow,a party! We would love to come, but we are leaving ourselves any day, and then there's the flight from Miami to Denver too! When are you setting sail? We are going over to the Bahamas in a few days (weather God's permitting) and will be bopping around the islands. We would love to meet up with you sometime. Let's share a cold one, and have our own Bon Voyage party in the Bahamas!

    1. Sounds like a great idea guys. Had hoped to make the Bahamas this year...but I'm not sure how the timing will work out at this point. If it does, that sounds perfect. You guys heading back this way for H season or are you trying to run south? If the Bahamas don't work, I'm sure we'll eventually cross paths and have that cold one.
