Yup, that’ll be Mr. Athena and I, drunk in da corner. 1200 different beers for us to try! Whoohooo! I’ve been wanting to go to this pretty much since I moved to Colorado, and here it is, my last chance to go, and I’m going! Never went before because I never wanted to spend the $$ on a hotel room, and as we live a good hour and 15 from downtown Denver, driving home after drinking all night is not a good idea.
Mr. Athena had stopped at our favorite brewery last night for a cold one (www.lefthandbrewing.com) and the friendly barmaid asked if we were going to the GABF. He said “No, we don’t have a hotel room, and we’re trying to save money.” She suggested looking into Priceline.com, since so few people are travelling lately. He came home and told me the story, and we went “What the heck? Let’s try it.” We log on to Priceline.com, say we want a 4 star deluxe hotel for $50 in downtown Denver - a laughable price! - and low-and-behold, we GOT it. Yup, we’re staying at a pretty damn nice hotel for the grand price of $50/night.
Any other dopers going? C’mon… meet me there!
