DerGolgo in Denver - weekend stuffs!

Post by rhinoviper » Thu Aug 28, 2014 9:10 pm

Updated location! Chickenhawk has graciously offered to host at his place, three three zero birch street in Denver, this Saturday, September 20, 3:00PM. Please BYO drinks and any specialty items you'd like to eat/share. He currently plans to make a food/snack run to save hauling stuff on bikes, etc., so please plan to contribute cash on arrival if you plan to partake. Most importantly, PLEASE POST YOUR RSVP HERE with total people count if you plan to attend (especially if you're not on the FB event) so there will be sufficient foodstuffs. If you plan to ride, you may park in front and walk around back or ride directly into the alley. Thanks, all!



OLD/ORIG POST (so as not to completely lose anyone just seeing the replies!):
So, according to my sources (as much as one can trust such sources!), DerGolgo will be in the Denver area September 19-21. So, unless I've missed something in another thread, what's the plan to give him the OOTMIK welcome here? BBQ? Has Mtne mentioned anything at the DAG? If not, shall I host in the foothills despite the driveway of doom? Reserve a shelter at a local park (like near Buffalo Bill's grave near Evergreen)?

I'd lay odds that there's likely no more than five locals that will see this. As per usual it will mean a couple of emails / group texts / mentions in person to dredge up more than a handful of people. I'm cool with the DAG being used though it's not traditionally comfortable....... though it always seems that all the dirbags ended up in the garage and the alley anyways. I'd likely need an evening or two of help to make space out of my chaos that has overtaken the DAG
How can it be fun if there's not at least an outside chance of dying?

Oh and in case there's local lurkers or travelers wondering where to show up the DAG is in the alley behind 1526 W. Dakota Ave, denver 80223. Don't go to the house because it's being rented currently. We actually live across the alley now days........... or I can be reached at 3 zero 3 six 1 nine 69 seven six.

I don't want to bore everyone with how completely fubar my life has been for the last year, so let me say that I'd love to hang out with DerG etc and we will just have to see.

Jason (chickenhawk) has offered up his place for a BBQ......... just off of 3rd and Colorado. I think that would be a good idea........ The DAG just ain't up to the task these days.

Re: DG in Denver - Plans gelling like Arby's meat!

Post by rhinoviper » Thu Sep 18, 2014 9:18 pm

Okee dokey. Friday 9/19 reservation for 8 people at 7:30PM at New Saigon 630 S Federal Blvd 7:30PM under Dani (and hopefully they have stuff to eat there that won't kill Road Missile!). May check out a craft brewery or hit Pints Pub before the late show (if you're not in the know and interested, please PM me). See y'all then and there!

Saturday 9/20

Morning TENTATIVE fall colors drive via Peak-to-Peak Hwy/Kenosha Pass/Deckers/Squaw Pass. Anyone want to ride and we can be chase vehicle? Will make tourist stops based on route (e.g., Estes Park/Carousel of Happiness/SouthPark...).

Afternoon BBQ (3:00PM ->) at Chknhwk's place.

If we're feeling especially young/motivated/enlivened, may check midnight show of Shaun of the Dead at the Esquire theater.

Brainstormed ideas for the remainder of DG's visit (his choice, of course):

Sunday 9/21 - Open to suggestions (Timmy - since you have the day off?)
Bardo/Paris on the Platte/Breakfast on Broadway
Chihuly Exhibit @ Botanic Gardens
CO Motorcycle Expo
Garden of the Gods/Cave of the Winds
Poetry Slam/Spoken Word @ Mercury Cafe

Monday 9/22 (also open/tentative)
Red Rocks
Dinosaur Ridge
DG's Corp HQ
Airport for flight to East Goatfuck, OK
