Lots of brewpub choices in Lawrence now. You can't go wrong with Free State, although it's often crowded. There's 23rd St. Brewing Co out on the west side of town. Lawrence Beer Co is a new-ish brewpub east of downtown in the old warehouse area they've been rehabbing the last few years. And a brand new shiny brewpub called Fields &Ivy just opened on east 23rd this summer.

That's a tough call...after checking them out I'm kind of leaning 23rd. St.?

I'd be ok with that. While there's nothing wrong with the two newer ones, they do seem a little more "trendy".

Do believe we have settled on this place. Looks like a total of 5? I can call and make a reservation. Early to avoid a rush??

How early were you thinking? Looks like there is a home football game at 11 am on 10/5 vs Oklahoma. We might have to deal with game day / post game crowds if we go too early.

I'm flexible though, any time is good for me.

I am flexible. Whatever works best for the most is fine.

All for one, and one for all!

The only problem is I won't be able to bring cookies as I would assume bringing in outside food to a pub is a no-no. I guess I could distribute them outside. Furtively, like it's something underhanded.

11am football game should be over around 2. If we shoot for 3:30 or 4 that should be late enough for the game day crowd to clear out and early enough to beat the dinner crowd.

Shit. Just ran across this thread. I'm just over two hours from Lawrence, and I'd be thrilled to join you. But we're leaving on the 4th on vacation and will be gone for over a week. You folks have fun!

That is such a shame. Maybe we can do it again in the spring.

It's on! So, how do we recognize or identify each other when we get there? I was thinking I could get there a little early and get a table for five for "Adams"...

Shoeless, any idea if Uber or Lyft are the better option in Larry?

My wife says Uber, but only because she's never actually called Lyft. She's called Uber a few times when one of the grandkids needed a ride somewhere...

Rrrroger. I'm sure we'll employ one at some point.

This is the day. I've written down directions so I can find it. I'm also starting early so if I do get lost I'll have time to locate it. Then I could also hit Brits and Wheatfields.

Will the table be reserved for Adams, as has been suggested?

Ok I just called them, they are not taking reservations but she didn't think there would be much of a wait by 4 pm, maybe 15-20 minutes tops. So I will try to get there about 3:45 and will try to get a table or get on the waiting list under "Adams". If anyone else gets there before me, please do the same!

Thanks Baker and Sicks Ate for taking the time to get together yesterday. We had a blast! Definitely need to plan for something a little larger come spring-ish.

I had a good time, the place we got together at was really nice. And the company was outstanding! I really want to do this again, and get together folks who couldn't come this time.

Likewise and absolutely! I'll bump this every month or so until then so anyone else interested can comment and be notified well in advance next time
