Poker Barrister Hits the Road

Back in town after some work-related travel.  Flew out Sunday to Denver for depositions.  Denver is always a good time - lots of restaurants and bars.  I set up shop at the Westin early Sunday afternoon, and immediately headed out to see how many brew-pubs I could hit up before the altitude and alcohol combined to incapacitate.  The answer - not many.  After a few beers at the Wynkoop Brewing Company and a few more at the Denver Chop House, I was done for the day.  An utter failure in my mind.  Although I'd like to blame the 4:45am east coast wake up and early morning flight out of BWI for the let down. 

It was mid-60's in Denver the entire trip.  Felt like baseball:



Hit the town a bit after the depositions both Monday and Tuesday.  Knowing you have to be up early in the morning with your "A-Game" limits the degeneracy.  I was, however, able to hit up a smattering of local watering holes, including my favorite "chain" bar, The Yard House (you can never go wrong with a few Stone IPA's . . .).   I could prolly spend an entire week working from bar to bar down the 16th Street Mall . . .



Wednesday began with a 5:00am wake up and a drive north up I-25 towards Cheyenne, Wyoming, for some additional work-related fun.  It was sort of nice to swap Beltway traffic for a Rocky Mountain view on the commute:


My destination was Carr, Colorado . . . just a few miles South of Cheyenne.  I hit the exit, and the sign read:  "no services."  Said sign did not lie.  Carr was basically the middle of nowhere:


I eventually found my destination -- a compressor station -- and quickly determined that my suit was a poor wardrobe choice. 


After TCB (not to be confused with TBC, who has, apparently, blocked me and most others from his new private blog), I decided to make a quick trip to Cheyenne, because . . . how many chances to you get to hit-up Cheyenne . . . After a quick 30 minute walk around town, I had had my fill.


After the not-so-subtle reminder why DC traffic is worth the sacrifice, it was back on the road to Denver to catch a flight back to civilization.   But not before spotting some buffalo on the side of the road.

I really thought buffalo where mythical creatures - like dinosaurs . . . or the Loch Ness Monster.  Apparently, they do actually exist.  The concept of the buffalo burger now makes a bit more sense . . .

Currently back in D.C. . . . for the moment (more depositions early next week).  It's 85 degrees and the cherry blossoms are aleady out around the neighborhood.  Baseball will definately be here soon . . .


Looking foward to some cash games this weekend; but until then . . .

  1. Fun pictures. They look like the definition of "the middle of nowhere."
