The work part of my trip has come to a close. I think it went well. Karen is coming in earlier than scheduled. She will be arriving tonight.
I was able to change our hotel from the Holiday Inn Airport to the Antlers. For a couple on vacation, the Antlers is the best. It is situated in downtown Colorado Springs and is within walking distance to many great restaurants and attractions.
I am sitting in Colorado Springs getting some work done. Karen will be joining me on Friday for a few days of vacation.
Last night, I stopped by Jack Quinn's for dinner. I had a Guinness and soup which was great.
Jack Quinn's is great place for draft beer and great music. Frequently, the music will be Irish folk music.
Karen and I have booked travel to the Southern Brewers Festival in Chattanooga, TN on the riverfront. It will be September 10th, 2005 instead of the Saturday before Labor Day weekend. It is a great event for all. Typically, 10 to 15 brewers are represented and each brewer has at least two beers available to tasting. At only buck a tasting with everything going to charity, who can beat it!
We stay for the whole weekend, because their is so much to do in Chattanooga. The best place to stay is Courtyard which across the street from all the activities.
We hope to see you there. We will be right in the middle of it all sitting in our folding chairs with cold beer, of course.
