    Wassup Buffs, we got into Boulder about 1:30, about 30 Dawgs on our flight into Denver. Got in town & settled in. Figured how to get across 28th (or 36,whatever y'all call it). Walked on campus for a coupla hours. What a lovely city & campus, killer scenery every where you look. Found the business fields where our UGA tailgate will be. It's halfway between our hotel & Folsom. Went to Folsom, found a open gate & wandered in. All I can say is Wow, very nice. We wandered around for 10 min. before a guy asked who we were & asked us to leave. We just turned on our best southern drawl & told him we didn't know any better. Hitting Pearl St. tonight for some good food & libation.

    Gonna daytrip up in the mountain's tomorrow & play it by ear after that. Perfect weather, cold beer & awesome scenery.... it doesn't get much better than this... Later guys.:thumbsup:

    Welcome Guys!!! Glad you made it safe and like the campus. Enjoy Pearl St. -- The best bars are there. Also another good place to go is the Sink on what we call "The Hill" -- good pizza and Robert Redford used to work there when he was a student at CU before he lost his baseball scholarship to "drunkeness" lol!

    Glad you guys are liking Boulder - if you have a few moments to spare in town, I recommend taking the drive up Flagstaff Mountain if the weather is nice - you'll get some killer views of the city and campus up there - it's just a short drive from the center of town - basically go to Baseline Road, and go west - it turns into Flagstaff Mountain Road and zig-zags up to the top from there

    Wow, these UGA fans will be much better than those hicks from FSU and WV.

    There goes the neighborhood. :lol:

    BTW, what hotel is the team staying in? Not that I'd drive around honking my horn at 2AM or anything.

    Man, why not drive up to Estes Park and check out Rocky Mt. NP?

    Better make it 5 to 9, just in case. You know. Its like when you set your DVR to record a game and then when you are watching it, the DVR ends with 3:46 left in the game.

    Be sure to tell all those Georgia high school recruits you don't have room for what a great place CU-Boulder is. We'll be more than happy to take a handful of recruits every year and keep them out of other SEC programs.

    Hope you have a great time this weekend (game score excepted, of course).

    Good point DBT. Last time we played UGA they were miserable until the last couple of seconds--so if Binary isn't careful, it could happen again. Make it 5-10, just to be extra careful.

    Welcome Dallas and Co. I'm jealous--I wish I could be in Boulder for this one. Enjoy.

    saw some Dawg fans in Liquormart yesterday. they were pretty wide-eyed. i pointed them in the direction of the Buffalo Trace bourbon that was on sale and the good stuff from Avery. the AD should pay me for all i do around here.

    LOL...we were in Liqourmart yesterday due to someone on here's recommendation on where to pick up our Makers Mark. Don't think it was us you ran in to though. We hit Pearl St. last night, what a fantastic entertainment development. Wound up at the Lazy Dog for the 1st half of the OSU-A&M game.

    DBT thanks for your suggestion on RMNP, that's where we're headed in a few minutes.

    Y'all have a great town, everyone we've met has welcomed us to town and been very cordial. We had a blast in Tempe in '08 but Boulder & the people here blow them away....

    Hopefully we won't drive off a mountain looking at the scenery today...Later guys

    No kidding. Ran into a few at Earl's on the 16th street mall last night and ended up talking to them for about 15 minutes. Between this and the experiences that my friends who went to the Georgia game a few years ago had, I'm ready to make this an annual game.

    Our liquor mega-stores are an anomaly. Most states allow liquor to be sold in grocery stores, which keeps the traditional liquor store at a pretty small size. DaveCo Liquors is something like 85,000 square feet. Nothing like that anywhere else in the country. I was back east a couple years ago and my Uncle was telling me about how they just opened up a new, 15,000 SF liquor store in his town in New Jersey. I turned to my Dad and said "How big is Liquor Mart?", "about 50,000 square feet". :wow:

    That's a definite possibility if you go up Trail Ridge Road, which is a must-do if you're in RMNP. Have a great trip.

    The other anomaly of our liquor laws is that you are only allowed to have one storefront per ownership group. So you get the huge places like DaveCo, Lukas, Applejack, etc.

    I drove that in a Lincoln navigator back when the Weasel was coaching Cu and playing against the Huskies. Kept stopping to get radio reception and hear the game. Got up along the ridgelines and the wind was blowing like crazy (hear 90 plus afterwards). Kept gusting and almost ran us off the road in places where we would not have survived. My knuckles were white they were gripped around the steering wheel so hard. That ridge sucked. Once off of the ridge though it was great.

    Yep, that's a huge one, too. And really nice. I've been there a couple times.

    And yet, if you listen to Fusker fans, we are the worst, most evil fan base in the nation. Don't let your guard down, dallasga6. You will soon be captured, gang raped, and then burned at the stake for daring to step into Boulder. Sorry about it, but it can't be helped. It is who we are after all.

    This is what I expected and hoped would happen.

    I was amazed at how well the Georgia/Colorado fans got along back in 2006. Usually when we go on the road the Buff fans are in big groups with some interaction with the locals, but when we were in Athens the groups were all broken up talking to the UGA fans. I remember walking into many restaurants and bars where the entire crowd wa completely mixed. We had many UGA groups offer us seats at their tables as well when there were lines waiting to get in.

    That was the most enjoyable part of the trip...I absolutely loved talking to the fans about football, their state, the mascots and just about everything else.

    Win or loose, booze!

    The Colorado front range has the reputation of being one of healthiest, yet heaviest drinking places in America.

    Hizzah to working out and drinking!

    Tipsy's is the first one that came to my mind. It's size is pronounced simply because there is nothing else around it. An alcohol oasis.

    Glad you are having a good time, be careful on Trail Ridge it's the highest continuous paved auto road in the US. The scenery is well worth it though.

    it's probably too late because dga6 is probably on the road already, but just in case...i'd recommend going through estes park and driving up into rmnp on the fall river road then coming back out on trail ridge. you always see some serious elk lounging by the road above timberline on fall river.
