Depends how slow kevin is. He is supposed to be at my place around 8:30 so he can learn how to look after my cats. I imagine we should be at the bar by about 8:50 - 9:00.

I had a good time at Nicks, and if I'm ever looking to actually get full on chicken, I know where to go now for ridiculously HUGE wings. (which I think Brenden is had for breakfast this morning)

I think Brenden's suggestion for Father Murphy's Irish Pub next week is a good one, it looks like a great place! How about making it official right now, and not change it 3x between now and next Wed? Just a thought.
Wink

Anyone who has a piece of obscure-weird-defunct, gear bring it along! Maybe Brian and I should bring our Raichle Super Sherpa full shank, leather boots. and have parking lot races!
(just picture running in ski-boots with 10 lb ankles weights)

Oh..BTW, HAPPY SPUTNIK DAY!!

The wings were indeed insane. Yeah, Father Murphys will be OK if it is down south. JR and I will carpool down there. It may be a couple of drivers changes. I will drive for the first tank.

My raichle boots are long gone ... I may have a coathanger ice screw though. That would freak Grant out just a little bit ...

So, Brian will drive to Squishy or Red Rocks on a whim, but some how thinks the south end of town is a couple tanks away... Guess memory fades with age, eh? Tongue

Good times had by all at the weekly meeting. Father Murphy's it is then. No Changing!

And Brian, I'm quite certain the waitress will know what a "Dark" beer is at an Irish Pub. (Where's that rolling eyes emoticon when you need it?) Oh, here it is:

So you also found it odd that when I asked what was her recommended dark beer, she said a pale ale.

Fired? Laid-off? Or did I completely miss something in the conversation last night? Or are you just done for the day?

I gave my two weeks last Friday and they told me to take a vacation for the rest of the week and next week. Good deal by my estimation. Just debating going to work earlier or lounging for a week. :-)

Sounds like a good deal if you're getting Vac. Pay during the time you're lounging around. You couple hike into all the early season ice locations and tell me what it's looking like if you need something to do.

Early ice?? We still have some (cold) rock to deal with first Laugh

The wings at Nick's.. really wondering if those were in fact *chicken* wings, they looked more like pterodactyl limbs or something. Regardless, they far exceeded the quality of our waitress (again)

Yes.. she sure was up to speed on the beer menu, wasn't she?



<5.4 climber> "What kind of beer do you have on tap?"
<waitress> "We have EVERYTHING on tap"
<5.4 climber> "Great, I'll have a Kilkenny then!"
<waitress> "we don't have Kilkenny"
<5.4 climber> "OK, I'll have an Albino Rhino then"
<waitress> "we don't have Albino Rhino"
<5.4 climber> "why don't you just tell me what you DO have?"
<waitress> Samuel Adams - blah
<waitress> Samuel Adams - blah, blah
<waitress> Samuel Adams - blah, blah, blah
<waitress> Samuel Adams - blah, blah, blah, blah
<waitress> Samuel Adams - blah, blah, blah, blah, blah




They have EVERYTHING on tap, as long as it 's Samuel Adams
Tongue

..and the classic of the night;


<5.4 climber-girl> "I'll have a bottle of xxxx"
<waitress> "OK,.. would you like a bottle with that?"
(no, just bring it to me in a paper bag)



Unsure

But again, the 10lbs of meat on the table made up for the inadequacies of our waitresses .

What's this "carpool" thing? I thought you'd be peddling by headlamp!
You and JR could always "Bike-Pool" Wink

In some placements those would be pretty good. In those placements, though, everything else would be bomber ... including a rubber duck on a sling.

Yes, yes we do have some cold rock to deal with... and I'm still thinking tomorrow would be a good time to deal with it.

I'll bring the stove and coffee pot, you bring the drill and extra battery.

Me thinks that if I gave them $49.99 cdn, that I'd be wanting change these days (and not in USD's thank you)
Tongue

So just how far south will this bike-pooling thing go? Is Father Murphy's anywhere near Vegas?
Come to think of it, this thread has already gone southCrazy Oh well carry on and I'll see you another time.

Murphy's is not like going to Vegas. Vegas has cheap flights!

I hope to be there this Wednesday. The pub, that is.

Wow.. short week, that's OK though because it means tomorrow is Pub Night! And as usual.. I'm in for;

Father Murphy's Irish Pub.


I was even told today that it's a great pub, guess we'll see.

It was Brenden's idea, so he has to be there Wink

Brian has to show us his coat-hanger ice screw

David is unemployed or on holidays or something, so he has no excuse.

Grant is probably passed out at the Mustang Ranch.

JP ?

Anyone else?

That looks handy, we'll probably be there too - climbing at Chinook wall after work so it depends how early we finish.
