We’ll be following in some pretty big shoes. :-)
This is our final post before the big event. Looks like we are 12+ and we are at WYNKOOP in Denver. We are looking to meet between 7-7:30 pm.
Thanks to thruppence we have a table reserved. He’ll bring the balloons, I’ll bring the name tags and camera.
Here is the google map: Wynkoop Brewing Location and Denver Map
And here is Wynkoop’s webpage and menu
Parking on a Tuesday night with no baseball should be okay. Double-check your meters, some still require $$ after 6 pm. If you want to come early and hangout before the big event, here are some options: Union Station, Tattered Cover Bookstore, Civic Center Park with the Capitol and the Denver Art Museum, 16th Street Mall.
I may popover to the Kirkland Museum to see the new location. I’ve been wanting to see it for a while.

UPDATE: Okay, just for my sanity, can we please just use this for the meetup. Thanks! And for FSM sake, please don’t feed the troll.
Lots of interest in the meet-up. I’ll post again the night before as a reminder. Here’s what we need today:
You guys to agree on a venue. UPDATE: WYNKOOP has been chosen. Do we have a time?
A volunteer to set-up the restaurant choice – see if we can get a table reserved – I believe Wynkoop may even have areas available for larger groups. I would do it, but I am out of town until the 12th.
Someone to bring the green balloons.
A general head count.
Anything I’m missing? We can get a final head count the night before.
Mnemosyne will be in Denver in July and suggested a meet-up on Tuesday 7/17. It would need to be early evening/evening, as she flies in that afternoon. We’ll need to meet near the Sheraton Denver Downtown, which I believe is right near the 16th Street Mall.
Who is up for a meet-up? We’ll need suggestions for a place to meet near the hotel and a volunteer to coordinate with the location.
I’ll repost this the first week of July with an update of numbers. I’ll be out of town from July 1 to just before the meet-up, so I’ll have limited availability for more than that, but I think as long as someone secures the venue, we should good.
I had hoped that our next meet-up I’d bring Bixby and Scout, but even as friendly as most locations are to dogs on the patio, the 16th Street Mall might be a bit too much for me to wrangle them. We will see how that goes. I would very much like for you guys to meet them sometime.
Hit the comments if you’re going to join us and/or volunteer to help out.
Is he going to be there??
Obama or the troll?
@Adam K: He’ll be in South Africa, so probably not.
Why is the guy in the background of that first picture fiddling with that other guy’s mouth?
Obama or the troll?
That looks like Hickenlooper.
@Steeplejack: Obama. No idea where the troll is. Russia’s a good guess.
Since this thread is quickly getting derailed anyway, was anyone else weirded out by the New York Times article about V-selfies? They have the weirdest editor’s note up about it today. Jezebel tells the story.
Sorry looks like I won’t make it :-(. I will be coming back from Spain that day and I don’t come in till 10:30pm. You guys enjoy yourselves. Hopefully we will have another meet up before I move back to Portland!
Wynkoop, a fine establishment.

Yay! See you all there.
Depending on how long it takes me to get checked in and settled at the hotel, I’m probably going to check out the Tattered Cover beforehand since I won’t have time otherwise.
Also, there’s a slight chance that I may allow my worlds to collide and bring along a couple of romance writers that I know, but don’t worry, we’re all from So Cal, so we all loathe Trump with a fiery hatred.
Count me in! Look forward to seeing everyone there.
You kids have fun. Don’t burn the place down.
Also on Tuesday, BillinGlendaleCa will be BillinScaramentoCA for a day. Lunch at Urban Roots on V Street at high noon.
I plan to be there! Just working out the details of where I’m going to stay, since it will be a long drive back to the central mountains after things become convivial.
@Miss Bianca: I’ve slept in my car on occasion. Thirty years ago.
Dead or alive, there are many things to do in Denver. Enjoy, all.
@Omnes Omnibus: Oh, myyy…well, of course, I do have the CRV – and I *have* slept in it before!
> : >
And to the general company, may I just say, how much of a *pleasure* it will be to see you all? It’s been a hard week or two – Adam knows some of the details – and I am very much looking to getting away and meeting some jackals! Cheers!
@Miss Bianca: Me good. France win.
@Omnes Omnibus: Ah, I’d gathered that. ; )
@Miss Bianca: I have a sport sedan. Get in the back seat and toss the keys into the driver’s footwell. It shows that you aren’t trying to drive at all.
I’m looking forward to this!
