Title: Rusty and Gabe in Denver Feb 29th and Mar 5th
Post by: Rusty on February 12, 2004, 12:52:50 PM
Sunday Feb 29th Gabe and I are driving up to Cheyenne (in CB5 RKT). Friday Mar 5th we are driving back. Anyone up for dinner on Sunday and/or lunch on Friday? Jay is already a "Hell yeah"...

Hey Rusty, let's see if we can organize something for Sunday dinner.  Put me down and I'll check with Jen to see if she wants to go too.

Cool.  Current count - Jay, You and Jen.  Y'all should decide amongst yourselves the best place and have us meet you there - preferably not too far off the Interstate or Toll Road path.

Rusty,
I'll check with the family and see if I cant get my crew out to make it for dinner.  Hopefully a kid friendly place.  If they cannot make it I'll do my best to get there.

Me, I'm out for sure. I'll be up in Breckenridge starting on the 29th and coming down again on the 5th.  :cry:  :(

I'm working on a small feature film up there and a weeks worth of work is a great thing for me right now. Sorry I'll miss you Rusty, tell Gabe hi for me. I hope your trip is uneventful this time around. But hey, you got a new free flow cat out of the last trip to Cheyenne. What's it going to be this time around? :lol:  :lol:  :roll:  Drive safe.

Hey Rusty, some things have come up at work and now I am working nights for the next couple of weeks.  My weeks starts Sunday at 5pm, unfortunately, since I am helping out some Australian customers.

Do you want to try and get together Friday?  What is your schedule?  Anyone else open to changing to Friday?
Title: Rusty and Gabe in Denver Feb 29th and Mar 5th
Post by: Rusty on February 23, 2004, 02:30:54 PM
We can do both days - Sunday would have to be dinner-ish, and Friday would have to be lunch-ish.  Whatever works is fine with us.  We're comin' through, and all aboard!!!

Sign me up for Friday.
Title: Rusty and Gabe in Denver Feb 29th and Mar 5th
Post by: ColoradoB5 on February 23, 2004, 06:14:52 PM
Me too!  The benefit of working nights is that I have all day Friday and Saturday off, so lemme know when you guy rool through... I'll arrange to hang with Pat and we'll meet you guy when you come through.

Pat, will the lunch Nazi's let you be flexible with your lunch time?

If I know what time we're going I can arrange ahead of time.  Otherwise I'm scheduled at noon.  If we can't plan on something firm a couple days ahead of time, I can see how busy we are at the time Rusty and Gabe get in and ask off at the last second.  If it happens that way, it's unlikely I'll be able to go, but still worth a shot.

Cool!  The only hitch might be if Gabe and I finish up early, we might go home on Thursday.  This is unlikely, but it could happen.  If so, I'll give you guys a heads up, and we'll just meet at noon on Thursday.  Otherwise, if it's not too much trouble, I'd like to plan for 11:15 on Friday - meeting at the decided place at 11:15.  You guys decide.

As for Sunday - between 6 and 7 pm - whoever's going to be there decide the place.  I'll call someone (Jay?) halfway to Denver to let you know whether it'll be closer to 6 or 7.  We're planning to leave at noon, so it should be about 6 barring unforseen circumstances, like my freakin' CAT separating from the turbo housing... 8O  :D

Alright, I have lunch Friday at 11:15.  Dub, you got any idea where we should go?  What about Garcia's just south of your place a block?

Rusty, I ams till up for dinner Sunday, a weekday lunch would be really tough for me since I am out in Golden.  My cell is 720.261.4891.  

Who is in for Sunday around 6 - 7 pm?
Title: Rusty and Gabe in Denver Feb 29th and Mar 5th
Post by: DenverPat on February 24, 2004, 12:57:44 PM
I could probably do Sunday also.

I'm still in for sunday.
I'm in downtown and there's lots of great places to eat and hang out here.
Let me know if want some suggestions, if not I'm open to anything.

Post by: 92UrS4 on February 26, 2004, 08:57:36 AM
Well I just got a huge project dumped on to me so i am going to be hella busy the next few days.  I ams till planning on Sunday night, but I can't really find the time to figure out where to meet.  Alan, if you have an idea of a good easy to find place for us all to meet up D-Town I would be up for that.

We just need to make it easy for Rusty and Gabe to get there.  I'll keep checking back here, but I would feel bad if those guys call me Sunday evening and I have no idea where to go :).

I suggest the Wynkoop Brew Pub in LoDo.
It's easy to find (across the street from Union Station and from my office), has excellent food and a great selection of their own brews.

Directions: from I-70 exit 20th Street (make a right at lights after exit), turn right at lights onto Wazee St., turn right at second intersetion onto 18th St., and you're there! (the corner of 18th and Wynkoop St.).
There's plenty of pay parking lots around if the streets are full.

I recommend the parking agarge across the street from the Wynkoop,  I know they used to do validation.  It's also covered so it's a bonus.

Post by: aowhaus on February 26, 2004, 04:38:50 PM
I work next door to the parking garage and across the street from the Wynkoop, and on weekends I park in the spots in the alley between my building and the garage -- the security guard in my building checks on the parking outside and he's off on the weekends (but you can never be too sure, so don't take my word for it).  
I don't like to park in that garage because the spaces are tight and I got my car scratched a couple times there. :mad:

OK, so on Sunday, the Wynkoop it is.  See you guys between 6 and 7, hoping for 6.  I'll give you a call on Sunday about 3 and let you know how we're doing time-wise.

Just to be sure - we are coming through:

Sunday Feb 29th for dinner

Friday March 5 for lunch

Post by: 92UrS4 on February 27, 2004, 10:32:19 AM
Yeah, I can only do one calendar event per thread I think...:)  On Monday morning I'll update it with the Friday lunch.

Just heard from Rusty, he thinks they should reach Denver by 6:30, so the plan is to meet at teh Wynkoop at 6:30pm.

We had a great dinner and a few beers at the Wynkoop last night, I hope they made it to Wyoming as I-25 was closed up north. I know they went to aowhaus' offices to check the roads.

It was great seeing Rusty, Gabe and Alan.  

As a reminder, they will be passing through again around lunch time on Friday for all those that were planning on meeting up with them.  I updated the calendar event to reflect this.

Well, I'd been planning on having lunch with you guys Friday, but there's a good chance I'll be in Vail Thursday through Sunday.  I'll keep you posted.

We checked the CDOT highway report and I-25 was closed last night north of Fort Collins due to ice and blowing snow.  Rusty and Gabe stayed over there until the highway opened up.

That was a nice time, great to see everyone.
Was working away in my office until 2:30am (one of my team members went awol  :mad: ), that dinner and beer break did me good!

Awesome!  I worked away.  But do have the day time off all week.  I'm off all day Friday, so I plan on meeting up with you guys.  

If Pat is still going to go, we talked about meeting at Garcia's, which is right in the Denver Tech Center off of Belleview.  

If Pat can't go and anyone else wants to meet up, I am willing to drive, so lay it on me, otherwise, we'll plan on Garcia's.

Wow, what a great meal and great beer and great people!  Was good to see you again, Jay & René, and to meet Alan!  We had fun in Alan's office - they design some really cool stuff there.

We didn't make it to Wyo - the road was still closed.  But nobody else in our work group made it there, either (two other cars).  We stayed in Ft Collins.

Looking forward to Friday! - Rusty

I do hope to make it to luch on Friday.

Rusty - I'm in your neck of the woods this week.  I flew in this evening.

See you then.

Hey, Folks -

Gabe and I have kicked network butt and it looks like we will be coming back home tomorrow.  We won't really know for sure until tomorrow morning because there's just one more little problem that needs to be worked out.

But, at this point, we're planning to be in Denver TOMORROW, Thursday, for lunch at noon, not 11:15.  I hope everyone who was planning for Friday can make it tomorrow.  But like I said, we won't know for sure until the morning.  I have most of your cell numbers, so I'll call you tomorrow  just as soon as I know for sure, but not later than 10:00.

Thanks - sorry I'm not more predictable :)
