Asheville Brews Cruise

"Experience a taste of Asheville’s thriving local beer scene with an exclusive tour of three of our award-winning microbreweries." - http://www.brewscruise.com/asheville/

This activity will be Tuesday night starting at 6pm and leaving from the hotel. First stop will be the Asheville Pizza & Brewing Co. to sample 16-20 different beers and eat some pizza (food billed separately). Then two more stops at the French Broad Brewery and the Highland Brewing Company for more beer sampling and learning about their brewery process.

The cost will be $40/person (not including pizza). The minimum number of folks we need is 16. There is no maximum. Due to logistics of transportation and size of the establishments we'll be visiting I've had to set a max of 48 persons.

Working Out

Gotta make up for that BBQ excursion somehow. Let's work out! Ideas: jogging or CrossFitting (Monday evening, 5:30pm or 6:30pm). Signup:

  • Erik Hatcher (game for both jogging and CrossFitting, bring it!)
  • Erik Mitchell (Run downtown asheville or the parkway? - great 12 mile climb up the parkway around Pisgah Mtn.), How about a Code4Lib half-marathon? (Why NOT! Let's do a Half Marathon) - Ray Schwartz
    • Bike riding - yes might be sketchy given our current weather
    • Hike up Looking Glass Rock [1]
  • Emily Lynema (game for jogging, hiking, walking, jumping jacks; not crazy enough for parkway running!)
  • Ray Schwartz (game for a run - why not a half marathon?!).
  • Rick Johnson (Looking to fit in a 10, 12 ,and 8 mile run while in town. Was originally thinking I would go early in the morning: 6:30 or 7. May not be able to run together everytime but definitely looking for suggestions on good routes)
  • Thom Cox (lifting, cardio, yoga--all good)
  • Jason Stirnaman (hiking, biking - don't mind the weather, lifting, cross-fitting)
  • Jean Rainwater (need to get some runs in where the footing's not treacherous and the temp is above freezing)
  • Gerald Snyder (a couple mornings jogging would be good, but only 4 or 5 miles for me thanks)
  • Jodi Schneider (CrossFitting sounds fun if we can fit in their schedule, yoga, walking, hiking)
  • Becky Yoose (hiking (intermediate level max), walking, cheer others on while they run a half marathon)
  • Carol Bean (does shivering in the cold count as exercise?)
  • John Barneson (I'm game for a.m. runs 5-10 miles. I would love a nice scenic route and I don't mind trail running)
  • Gabriel Farrell (running, yoga, pickup soccer?)

Sitting in a room together and half the time talking to each other out loud and half the time talking in IRC

Because you know it's going to happen

  • William Denton
  • Mike Giarlo (fulfiller of destinies)
  • /ignore mjgiarlo
  • Antonio Barrera (trying to avoid a repeat of Portland)
  • Jodi Schneider (one of the highlights!!!)
  • Bess Sadler (can it be in the hospitality suite at 4am? That's the best!)
