    I'm booking a car rental from downtown Denver for Thursday noon till Sunday noon. if anyone wants to chop.

    It appears cheaper booking downtown. I'll take the light rail to the airport on Sunday.

    I take that back.

    I made it Wednesday instead of Thursday, Used code AW# S107100 and now picking up and dropping off at the airport, $270 total.

    Seems making it 12.30 instead of 12pm lowered it $44 :)

    I'm coming in THUR. I'm picking up my car about 30 minutes out. I need it for 8 days. It was less than half price renting it 30 minutes away vs renting it from the airport.

    I looked at the other places. 1/2 price seems a good deal for 8 days. But half of what?

    My car rental for 8 days is $282.61 from Avis. It was over 600 bucks if I rented it from the airport.

    My 7 day rental in Austin is $285 from Alamo. Including Airport pickup/drop-off. Not bad. :)

    @ChaosRock has been hyping up the Colorado crew. I can't wait to meet you guys. Well, I've already met Mike/Slisk a few times. If he is a good representative of what the meet up is going to be like I'm going to feel right at home.

    This is going to be a great month. Two meet ups in the next three weeks :)

    I desperately tried to make last minute arrangements to piggyback with Gear to make the trip, but was smacked down by the wife veto. Have fun guys. I'll be watching the blog intently.

    I was clicking through and see you still have my name in the lockup list...I think I posted my regrets, but it might have been in the Air BnB messages. I have to be in NYC on Thursday and Friday for work. Sorry to miss this, but it is a command performance.
    Good luck to you all!

    Looks like Tipsy's, which is OK. It's kind of remarkable that they don't have more inventory considering the size of the building. At least their prices have come back down to earth. When they first opened I made one visit and didn't go back for a long time because most Colorado craft beer 6-packs were $2-$3 more than everyone else charged.
