    Default Freezing Saddles Closing Happy Hour -- Please RSVP on this thread

    Hi everyone,
    Here are the details for the Freezing Saddles Closing Happy Hour, the event at which we will give out awesome prizes and celebrate the end of the Freezing Saddles season!

    Date: Tuesday, April 4, 2017
    (The Freezing Saddles contest ends on March 19 at midnight, but holding the happy hour on April 4 will allow time to crunch the data and prepare awards.)
    Time: 6 to 8 pm (officially) but we’re welcome to stay ‘til 9:30 or 10 pm.
    Location: Bier Baron Tavern, located at 1523 22nd St NW, Washington, DC (between P and Q Streets on the east side of the street)...this is near Dupont Circle and Foggy Bottom in DC. We will hold the award ceremony on the stage, starting at about 7 pm. The room has audio-visual capacity….a screen, a juke box, a sound system (we can hook up an iphone or other gadgets), projector, etc.
    Cover charge (suggested cash donation): $10 per person…all of this will cover food. For our opening happy hour, the Bier Baron zeroed out any charges for the private room and wait-staff, so we paid only for the food (which was $800 total). We have $200 left over from January which will go to food as well…so there will be MORE food this time, and we will stagger it in batches throughout the evening. The buffet of finger food will include soft pretzels, quesadillas, and falafel sandwiches.
    Beer: Bier Baron sells 24 beers on draft, and up ‘til 7 pm there’s a $1 discount on the draft beers (the standard price is $5 to $9 for most types). They also sell 600 types of beer in bottles, and they have sodas and juices as well. There’s a full menu of dinner food for those who wish a heartier meal.
    Children: If you’re not able to park your little ones with a friend or a babysitter, feel free to bring them along. This is a bar, so adults will be carded at the door, but kids are welcome until 9 pm. The award ceremony usually rates between G and PG-13.
    Bike Parking: Bring a U-lock and any other locks you’ve got, ‘cause we will be parking our bikes on the street. Do not park INSIDE the neighbor’s garden – please keep your bicycle on the outer part of the railing if you lock up to any private enclosures. Before the prior happy hour we did an intensive search for bike parking facilities in the area, but without much luck. However, there are 15 racks between Bier Baron and Dupont Circle, which will hold about 70 bikes, plus assorted poles and other things to latch onto. There is also Capital Bikeshare, assuming you can find a space in which to dock your bike. And Bier Baron is located near the Dupont Circle Metro, if you opt to take transit instead.
    Paper Plates: Making paper-plate name badges has become a Freezing Saddles tradition. We will have plates, markers, stickers, hole-punchers and yarn available for those who wish to design for themselves a commemorative name plate.
    RSVPs: We are making a list of likely attendees so as to generate an approximate head count for food.
    Please reply on this thread if you’d like to join in the fun (and please indicate the number if you’ll be bringing friends/family). All are welcome.

    Looking forward! w&w on behalf of your hardworking FS social committee
