Denver hello!

Anyone want to meet up and celebrate the end of winter? I moved here last October from Chicago and must have brought it with me. Sorry! Just to pull a date out of the hat, how about June 5th (the first wednesday of the month)?

Welcome! I'm new here myself. I'm in for June 5th as long as it's after 7.

I'm in, and consider me another vote for doing something at 7 or later.

I might be able to make the 5th, depending on location. travertina, what area of town are you in?

After 7 works for me too! I'm in Capitol Hill and work downtown, uh "lodo"-- either of those areas are great for me. If folks need easier parking then I'm open to further afield.

Any ideas for where to meet?

I'm pretty unfamiliar with Denver and would be coming down from Fort Collins, so my vote is for someplace that's parking friendly and ideally has food :)

Holmesian, we could carpool. I’m in. And I’ve generally found parking in HiLo to be doable. (But also not terrible in LoDo).

I vote that we get something on the calendar so it doesn't fall off the IRL radar! It seems like 6/5 at 7:00 works for most people. Does anyone have a favorite spacious bar that won't be too slammed on a Wednesday night?

Terminal Bar at Union Station generally works for a largeish group on weekday evenings. I work downtown and we do goodbye drinks here a lot. Plus, it's convenient to transit, and there are a variety of food options if folks need noms or non-booze things.

Rio Grande (Mexican restaurant with good drinks) also works well for this--especially if the weather's nice and we can get patio seats. It's 2 blocks from Union Station.
