Wow! It's officially time to celebrate the 2 year anniversary of the Casual Cocktails Meetup Group! It all began on January 30th 2008, with me and Kirk, my “charter member”, showing up and drinking beer together in a bar! Then in February ‘08, Tom joined the fun… in March ‘08, Will and Blaine arrived… and we have continued to gain new members every day since.
It’s a lot of fun looking back at all of the fabulous people I have met who have now become great friends! Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this group over the last 2 years! Now that 2010 has arrived, I look forward to making new memories with all of you in the new decade.
For our January Happy Hour, we will meet at C.B. & Potts located in Broomfield across from the Flatiron Crossing Mall.
I have reserved the Irons Room, which is the side room with the pool tables just left of the main bar area. We will also have the 2 big tables located just outside of the pool area in the main bar. We will have seating for 40 at a mix of bar-height and dining tables, with plenty of room for others to mingle around.
In order for their kitchen to prepare for our size of our group, they are restricting us to a "limited menu" of food items. These items will be available at the normal price off of their main menu. Your choices will include:
- Chicken Tenders
- Alaska Wild Salmon
- All American Burger
- Clubhouse Sandwich
- Big Horn Salad
- Grilled Chicken Sandwich
- Any Calzone on the menu
If you really want something off of the main menu that is not included on our "limited menu", they did say they will try to accommodate those requests.
C.B. & Potts can run separate checks, so they will need a credit card with your name on it to swipe at the beginning. Otherwise, you can pay the servers with cash as you place your order. For our size of group, a 20% gratuity will be added to each bill.
If anyone is interested, there are 2 pool tables available in our room, for a rental fee of $10 per hour.
Please RSVP responsibly! Only sign up if you know that you WILL be able to attend. I am paying for the $50 room rental myself, but the amount of the fee is based on a guaranteed headcount. Please only sign up, if we are going to actually see you at the event! Repeated No-shows and late cancellations (less than 12 hours before an event) will be removed from the group.
I hope you can join us in celebrating our 2 Year Anniversary of the Casual Cocktails Meetup Group!
