Rocky Mountain Blogger Bash 5.5: The Very Official Announcement

Blogger Bash is coming. Can you smell the shots?

Important Update: The Minturn in no longer the Minturn, regardless of what the Web site says. It is now The Moon Time Bar.

After much hard thought, many drinks, and more than a small dose of procrastination, Andy and I are pleased to present:

Rocky Mountain Blogger Bash 5.5

Friday, August 25, 2006
Minturn Saloon Moon Time Bar
Pseudo-Centrally Located
846 Broadway | Denver, Colorado

Open to bloggers, commenters, significant others, and random passers-by. You can expect to talk about politics, music, movies, and ruminations on the meaning of “Centrally Located” while drinking all the booze your credit card can buy.

RSVP here or at Andy’s joint and we’ll keep a running list of the attendees.

For more information about the Minturn.
Check out Google Maps to find the quickest path to the bar.

Party People
  • David. Me. The End.
  • Andy. Your other host for the evening.
  • Matt. The once and future blogger.
  • Roger Fraley. Who will be there, darnit.
  • Shannon wishes she could come. But she can’t. Which is what she gets for running away to Canada.
  • Off Colfax. Who always shows up right when everyone else is drunk. Which means he sits there, pointing at us and laughing most of the night. Which, if I could remember it clearly, would probably hurt my feelings something fierce.
  • Publicola. Who will be on the roof smoking the night away in the most centrally-located seat he can find.
  • Angie. Keep your fingers crossed.
  • Goyishekop.
  • Jiggity. He’s buying the shots this time, I hear.
  • Charlie. Who isn’t quite older than dirt. Yet.
  • Jed. The vocal voice urging party unity. Or, wait, that’s not quite right.
  • Rae. The far-traveling blogger and long-time buddy (and proof that hot chicks blog).
  • Darren. Who always brings big, loud conversational aids.
  • Wheels. Who will be moving his blogs to new digs soon.
  • Cutter. That’s Doctor Cutter, if you please.
  • Stacy. And her brand new blog location.
  • David Aitken. Because he now realizes that we really are the cool kids and that he should have shown up last time.
  • Sin from Bleeding Right is coming because he knows we might be able to con the bartender into playing some good music.
  • Robert will, hopefully, refrain from creatively destroying anything during the bash.

Comments & Trackbacks
The trackback URL for this entry is:

Yea!!!  I love bars that are within walking distance.  The only problem is the trip home is always twice as long, what with the staggering and all.

I think I still have your number so I’ll call you.

on Jul 25 2006 @ 12:27 PM

Oh Yeah, I guess this is a RSVP.

on Jul 25 2006 @ 12:29 PM

You mean stumbling distance, right?


on Jul 25 2006 @ 12:46 PM

Wait, isn’t this the same place as last year? Hooray!  As I recall, there is a terrific little Jazz bar around the corner…

on Jul 25 2006 @ 01:57 PM

Indeed it is. I really liked the place and Andy did, too--and we figured you’d be able to find it pretty easily.

on Jul 25 2006 @ 01:59 PM

Cool. Maybe this time I’ll stay until the shooting starts.

on Jul 25 2006 @ 03:29 PM

Staggering and stumbling are the same thing right?  And yes, there is a jazz bar nearby...Hopefully no SHOOTINGS this time.

on Jul 25 2006 @ 07:45 PM

I’ll be there, I think.

on Jul 25 2006 @ 08:40 PM

Hey, I consider Dazzle my lifesaver that night.  Well, Andy and Darren, too.

on Jul 26 2006 @ 05:30 AM

Am I slow on the draw or what?  You called me proof that hot chicks blog?  Awww, thanks :D

But, David, the drinking starts in August wink

on Jul 26 2006 @ 05:35 AM

There’s the inspiration for my latest post.

on Jul 26 2006 @ 06:56 AM

I’ll be there, and Cheryl is planning to show up, as well.

on Jul 26 2006 @ 09:05 AM

Excellent. I haven’t checked in a couple days, but is your new site up and running yet?

on Jul 26 2006 @ 09:27 AM

Count me in!  Well, provided I can collect enough donations for the cab ride....

on Jul 26 2006 @ 10:47 AM

Hooray beer!

on Jul 26 2006 @ 01:10 PM

I love those commercials. Actually, I miss those commercials. I haven’t seen one in a while.

Hooray beer!

on Jul 26 2006 @ 01:13 PM

Actually, I’d be perfectly happy to achieve even bilateral unity.

Los Festividades del Bloggo
Yes, it's time for the next Rocky Mountain Blogger Bash. Zombyboy has the scoop, even if the bar has since changed names and he's too lazy to change it. Short version: August 25. Beverages. Delightful company. Be there....
Jul 26 2006 @ 08:25 PM

OC + RSVP - TOGA = I’m so there, dude.

Save me a seat on the roof.

on Jul 26 2006 @ 09:29 PM

Again, like last time, I’ll try to be there.  Flight pending.  This place better serve peach martinis.

on Jul 26 2006 @ 11:19 PM

does this allegedly centrally located joint have a patio where tobacco may be lit afire in a soothing & peaceful manner?

& has anyone actually sent the denver city council to hell yet? & their little hickenlooper too? Not that I’m bitter about their outlawing my favorite method of being secure or anything like that, but someone could have at least refused to validate their parking, or told their wives/hubbies/veteraniarians about that itching they picked up on Colfax…

& don’t get too excited about any terrific bars around the corner. No smoking in bars means loss of revenue which means budget cuts which means bars pay bands less which means you’ll either get to see actual starving musicians or substandard musicians who cut a deal. Now I am bitter about that.

on Jul 27 2006 @ 02:40 AM

No, the new site doesn’t have anything more than a placeholder yet. I’m trying to decide how I want it set up, but things are a bit hot and heavy at work at the moment (I’m on the critical path, and behind schedule).

on Jul 27 2006 @ 07:28 AM

And, speaking of substandard musicians, I could bring a ukulele grin

By the way, David, have you seen http://www.hotcaptcha.com/ yet?

on Jul 27 2006 @ 07:30 AM

Oh, man, I wouldn’t bother signing in if I had a Hotcaptcha plugin.

And I’d comment more regularly. Even if I was only talking to myself.

on Jul 27 2006 @ 07:42 AM

Update for everyone who has RSVP’d to this point: the Minturn has changed its name to Moon Time Bar. So, when you’re wandering around all confused and stuff, wondering where the heck the party went to, stop looking for the Minturn and start looking for Drunken Andy.

on Jul 27 2006 @ 08:20 AM

Who always brings big, loud conversational aids.

I was wondering who was giving Goldstein a ride… tongue rolleye

on Jul 27 2006 @ 10:34 AM

I think I might want to come again this year.  I moved URL’s again.  Mother may I?

on Jul 29 2006 @ 12:18 PM

Indeed you may. Look forward to seeing you.

on Jul 29 2006 @ 12:20 PM

I’ll be there if I don’t get a cold like I did last time. That sucked.

on Jul 29 2006 @ 12:52 PM

Missed it the last time around. I’m going to try to make it ...unless my early alzheimers gets the best of me. I have the memory of a goldfish so someone should keep reminding me. smile

on Jul 29 2006 @ 01:59 PM

I come.  Maybe bring beautiful woman.  (Again.) If Wheels bring ukulele, I request “Ukulele Lady.”

on Jul 30 2006 @ 02:24 PM

I can’t wait to see you all again.  Darren needs to be seriously hassled for retiring.  Can we make him sit at a different table?

on Jul 31 2006 @ 06:24 PM

Not only can we do that, we can then throw pickles at him while keeping the cocktail waitress from serving him booze.

It’ll be torture.

(And, by the way, for those who haven’t been linked yet: never fear. I will be making updates later this evening.)

on Jul 31 2006 @ 06:30 PM

Stacy, did you tell me that you got new digs?  I have been so busy that I may have missed an announcement...Your new place is soooooo cute!

I look forward to seeing you :D

on Jul 31 2006 @ 06:50 PM

RAE, I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU!!!  Yes I did move, you understand that MuNu stuff.  Your own domain is the only way to go.

on Aug 01 2006 @ 06:16 AM

Who said I retired, I just can’t get my site up and running, but I’ll bring my computer and all y’all can help me get my new site up and running....

AS for the pickles, that’s fine, but no booze....that would make me angry, and you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry....Think Goldstein times ten.

on Aug 01 2006 @ 10:28 PM

I’m guessing if one needs computer help this’d be the group to look to for help.

on Aug 02 2006 @ 08:47 AM

I shall endeavour to attend.

on Aug 16 2006 @ 08:17 AM

Wow, first I’m hearing about it.

Guess after last time nobody much wants me there, eh?

Rocky Mountain Blogger Bash 5.5
Evidently set for the 25th of this month, though I heard about it accidentally for the very first time today.  Details here. To borrow a phrase, I'm not very popular with Chicago police department. Still, maybe I'll show up anywat just to piss off the hosts.  Because that's what I do.
Aug 19 2006 @ 05:19 PM

You guys now know you can’t make it official without the good ol’ Jiggity, right? Who else is going to keep Jeff in line. Please God, may they have Guinness there otherwise I think Jeff and shots most surely do not mix.

on Aug 19 2006 @ 05:41 PM

This time for sure.

(It’s the day after my 51st birthday.  I hope the bar is old fart accessible.)

For bloggers in one of those square states out west, the fifth Rocky Mountain Bloggers bash is nigh. Friday, August 25th A ThreeSources favorite, BlondeSagacity is this week's Powerline blog of the week. Woo-hoo!...
Aug 20 2006 @ 08:38 AM

Ya couldn’t have held off one more week when I’d actually be in Colorado? Sheesh. Where’s the love for one of the oldest Colorado bloggers out there, huh?

on Aug 20 2006 @ 10:46 AM

Okay, someone please tell me I’m not the only left-leaning person on this list.

on Aug 20 2006 @ 12:44 PM

Nah, just close to the only one. Heheh.

Andrew, sorry about that. It’s mostly because we’re thoughtless bastards.

on Aug 20 2006 @ 04:58 PM

I’ll show up with some hot chicks.

on Aug 20 2006 @ 06:06 PM

What time does this get started? I can’t leave too early on Friday afternoon. If it’s before 2, I’ll be late.

on Aug 20 2006 @ 06:40 PM

Robin, you’re a good man.

Karl, it doesn’t start until about 6. Which should have been in the post. Which just proves that I’m an idiot.

Sorry about that.

on Aug 20 2006 @ 07:13 PM

I’ll do my best to be there since I’ve missed the last few.  Thanks to Jeff for letting me know, otherwise I’d have no idea.  Am I still the token liberal of the group?

on Aug 21 2006 @ 08:24 PM

No, just the leftiest of the left.

While the rest of the world goes to Hell…
…I’ll be partying it up with my fellow Mile High Bloggers this coming Friday at the Rocky Mountain Blogger Bash 5.5. The shindig is set to go down at the Moon Time Bar which is located at 846 Broadway in Denver. From what I can gather it&#...
Aug 22 2006 @ 10:58 AM

S.G. -

I haven’t learned “Ukulele Lady” yet. It’s not been high on my “I like this” scale. I may be able to do “Their Brains Were Small and They Died” if my voice is back by Friday (I’ve been sick this past week).

on Aug 22 2006 @ 07:13 PM

"Their Brains Were Small and They Died.”

Man, and I thought Corrosion of Conformity was hard core.

on Aug 22 2006 @ 07:17 PM

I don’t know what kind of music you think I like, but that’s a song by Mark Graham, who has been billing himself lately as “The King of Mongrel Folk.” It’s off an old LP of his titled, “Natural Selections.”

His sensibilities and lyrics seem to me to be somewhat similar to the Austin Lounge Lizards, although I think he’s a bit more versatile in his musical style(s).

on Aug 23 2006 @ 09:19 AM

At least I won’t have to kidnap Jeralyn. Though Acidman’s dead, and the Canon got sent back to Canon for repair, so my plan is thwarted regardless.

on Aug 23 2006 @ 05:07 PM

No worries, Charlie—I can personally vouch for its old-fart-accessibility. But I recommend eschewing that “51st” crap and embracing the concept of entering your 40-teens. This year, you’re forty-eleven, next year it’s forty-twelve, and so on.

BTW, David, consider this my RSVP, too, in case my trackback doesn’t make it. I’ll expect a thoroughly maudlin moment or two of toasting the guys like my late father who fought an earlier war against fascism. Then we can get back to the ribaldry and silliness.

on Aug 23 2006 @ 09:46 PM

I’ll expect a thoroughly maudlin moment or two of toasting the guys like my late father who fought an earlier war against fascism.

I’ll buy the round, you make the suitably touching toast. I’m glad you’ll be able to make it; I wasn’t sure you would have the opportunity.

on Aug 23 2006 @ 09:50 PM

This sounds like a fun sort of crowd.  Count me in.  I look forward to meeting you all.

on Aug 25 2006 @ 12:10 PM
lest I forget
Anyway, it should be good fun. If you buy Andy enough shots, he'll tell you all about how I make his heart go pitter-pat. Rae will be there, too. She has super-hot knees.
Aug 25 2006 @ 02:12 PM

Looks like I’ll have to try for next time.  I’ll plan it better next go around.

on Aug 25 2006 @ 03:52 PM

I owe you (rather, all of you) a drink!!  I just realized I left last night without ever paying for my 2nd drink!
My embarrassed but sincere apologies to whoever ended up with the tab for that.
You folks all wowed me so much I left without my brains intact!

on Aug 26 2006 @ 06:36 AM

No worries. I did my best to make sure that I bought everyone a drink--that one was on me.

I look forward to seeing you at the next bash.

on Aug 26 2006 @ 06:47 PM

Good advice for you folks out there.

When you happen to be at a large gathering of people and, for some strange and completely unknown reason, someone leaves a tray of unclaimed Jaegermeister shots laying around…


This has been a presentation of the American Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Bloggers.

on Aug 27 2006 @ 12:16 AM

Heheh. So you’re the one that drank all of the Jaeger. I was wondering who finished off those shots.

on Aug 27 2006 @ 12:26 AM

God that was some nasty stuff.

But a fun time nonetheless.
