www.thechive.com and we took advantage of it. It was a 12 hours drive followed by some over priced whiskey at the hotel bar in downtown Denver. A short bus ride the next morning (and meeting a new friend Dan,) and we were at City Park ready to rock.
It's also worth noting that after years of pushing me in my wheelchair when we were younger, Waylen still has it. Nobody can push a chair like him.
After many hours of enjoying the fest, our age and the 95 degree temps got the best of us, and we headed back to the hotel early to relax in air conditioning. Of course we enjoyed a few more whiskeys and good old Coors Banquet beers before calling it a night. I would love to do another Chive Fest, just maybe it could be a bit cooler next time!
