    I'm going to Denver, pretty stoked about it. Work has been insane, it will be nice to get the hell out of here a few days.

    Hoping to get 2 good days of snowboarding in A Basin for sure, then somewhere else random.

    As of now snow has been slim. Places are open, but limited trails.

    Don't get me wrong, I love my hometown and would defend it to the death. But I grew up in the boonies of Newark.

    I miss the days when it was 614.

    I make fun of it, but only because I lived it for 18+ years. I do get testy when others talk shit about Newark.

    We mostly just get drunk and bar hop, but the one thing we currently have planned is the cincy winter beer festival. 

     

    Any dinner recs for a group of 8?

    I'll be volunteering at the beer fest, but likely on Friday night in the VIP area.

    Do you know what part of town you're staying in? What price range?

    Hofbrahaus in Newport has good beer, good food.  Great setting for groups.

    Austin was legit, ate some great BBQ, saw some good live music and drank like 5000 beers. Also snowed several inches on NYE which was wild.

     

    Coming up: heading to Tahoe in Feb for skiing, Santa Cruz in March, married in April, debating on going to Ohio for the NFL draft to watch with a buddy, probabaly go intl in June/July for honeymoon. Still debating on locations for that.

    I would also suggest Rheingeist (SP?). It's a solid brewery with a ton of space. Bit of a turn key begging to be bought by big beer but solid beers and a good time.

    Just went through the TSA checkpoint.  Got myself a little extra peepee patdown.  THAT didn't feel like a violation at all.

    I think I just engaged in morning foreplay with a father of two girls before 7am.

    Thought about telling him to call me daddy.  At least then it would have been as uncomfortable for him as it was for me.
