RWO Gathering Aug 4th [Update]

[UPDATE FOR SATURDAY]

Hey all, for tonight I’m not going to reserve a room…I reserved one on Wednesday and had a bunch of tables and chairs for Ed, Jeem and myself to use :-)

Tonight we are looking to just get some tables put together and it looks like RMH, Jeem and possibly Ike plus three and one other…Ed is going to Jersey Boys so probably wont be there…

So, we want to get there a little before 4:00 to eat something and then hang out for a bit…we haven’t made batting practice yet (stupid denver traffic!) and really want to tonight (and try and get an autograph)…that is our plan…eat, hang and batting practice…

=================================

 

Here is the updated information, based on comments from the gang, on getting together for a little Rox Walk Off gathering before the games:

LOCATION: Blake Street Tavern
1 Block N. of Coors
http://www.blakestreettavern.com/
DATES/TIME: Wed, August 1st @ 4:30 PM
Sat, August 4th @ 4:00 PM

The game on Wednesday is at 6:50, so that will give us time to eat and hang out for a bit.  Saturday’s game is at 6:10.

I’d like to get an idea of how many people so I can set up a reservation.  Please let me know if you are planning on going, what day and how many people.

I’m definitely in as long as everyone promises not to stone me. Works out great as I return from Boston on the 31st.

A place? Any ideas? Don’t some of you guys like Jackson’s? Falling Rock has a decent outdoor area…

I am definitely up for it! My favorite place to go before games is Buenos Aires pizzeria on 22nd St. Just a note they are closed Mondays.

But am up for anything of course.

Steve, I already mentioned you were at Chase and I had been at Petco. I mentioned that in a thread talking about not going to games or “boycotting” the Rockies. Come from FL, I’m use to supporting a fledgling team.

Not only are we still going to games but we are going to games on the road.

Blake Street Tavern is a great place…one block from the right field line…kids are allowed…great food, cold beer.

I’m in. Before or after on Wednesday…before or after Saturday.

Name the place.

From your article you will be doing “family” stuff until the 31st, but will you be free Tuesday night the 31st? I have Guys Night Out ticket for Tuesday’s game vs. the Cardinals. I invite you to come to the game with me since my wife obviously can’t come to the games anymore for a while. Only one ticket, but if something unplanned happens with my wife then you can have my ticket to share with one of your family… Read more »

There are always tons of tickets from scalpers on Blake below cost.

we thought about scalpers but have tried in the past and didn’t have the best experience/seats/price…i’m sure we got the wrong guy/game…we want to make sure we have tickets in hand so we know… we also made the mistake of thinking we could “scalp” tickets to games in the past…got stuck with a bunch of unused tickets because it isn’t as easy as you’d think…we bought tickets for the World Baseball Classic twice (2006 and 2009) thinking we could sell… Read more »

I can probably do both Wed + Sat. Thinking pre-game best, esp for Wed.

I won’t be in Denver that week, but I can agree with others, Jared, that the Blake Street Tavern is an excellent place to meet before a game. I’ve been there many times and you can certainly bring the kids to a place that seems as much a restaurant as a bar.

While on this subject, will any of you be at the September 1 game against the Padres? I will be flying into Denver that weekend for a wedding and will get to go to the game on Saturday. Blake Street Tavern is likely for me.

J…

Coming Wednesday, pregame for sure. NOT after game.

Saturday is 50/50…Going to Jersey Boys so am trying to talk others into going to Blake Street pre-play…maybe yes, maybe no.

Definitely see you Wednesday…I’ll have your tix with me then.

See ya.

I’ve not been checking in for a few days and missed this whole thread. I should be able to drop by on Sat. There is three of us. Also Jaredean, did you get tickets? If not, we should chat.

Excellent! See you Sat!

RMH hooked me up for tonight and Ed hooked me up for Sat…we bought the other games. Thanks for your thought, I’ll let you know if there is a snag. We do need to buy a single tickets for Thursday and Friday because the Coca-Cola Value Pack are only four tickets and we are five people. But, we will just buy nosebleeds and then have my son sit on my lap.

Sorry Jared, wasn’t checking this post and barely had any cell reception where my friend lives in Mass: Northboro, home of the late lamented Mark the Bird Fidrych.

Probably too late, but I am a solo act.

Don’t be a “black cat” with my tix. The Rox ALWAYS play very well when I’m sitting in them!!

No disrespect intended, Ags. Re-read my post and thought “umm, printed word doesn’t always come across correctly”.

Steve, no offense taken. I think we all agree that Jared and this site is one of the few really good things about this Rockies season.

Hope you guys had fun. And I hope you do it again during a week when I can make it. Watching tonight, just remember this: the Best GM in Baseball preferred Casey Weathers (8th pick overall) to Madison Bumgarner (10th). And you wonder why we’re so awful.

Jack and George talking about what a great guy Giants 3B coach Tim Flannery is. I used to live in San Diego, and folks love him there. Never a bad word about him, and a good baseball guy. Yet he’s never managed at the big league level. Now why can’t we go after a guy like that as our manager next year?

Agbayani
Agbayani

TV guys praising CarGo for sliding to catch a foul ball that he could’ve easily caught if he’d stayed on his feet — at the risk of running into the low wall along the 3B line. I’d like to think that if we were playing meaningful games that CarGo would’ve gone all out for that one. But given the way things are going, CarGo made the right choice by taking the safe route.

Agbayani

Oh, and Manager for Life apparently thought it was a good idea to double switch and stick Rosario at 3B with predictable results. Best GM in Baseball could just stick Arenado there to give us SOMETHING worth watching, but Arenado must be punished for not running out a ground ball, even though that is becoming epidemic on the big club. (Not that Arenado has shown he deserves the promotion, but hey, neither did Bryce Harper)
