    Default Vermont EBS/get-together

    Hi All!

    Several people talked about this on Rich's 14th Star thread & I volunteered to post about it here.

    How 'bout we meet up somewhere? Of course anyone from anywhere is welcome, but I think so far we have 2 from Essex, & one each from Mt. Holly, Pittsford, & Montpeculiar.

    Then of course is when & where. Last time was Montpelier, but Middlebury was discussed this time. Of course where everyone is coming from could change it. Date? What about 2/11 or 2/12? Lunch, brunch, dinner?

    Let's hear preferences & go from there. I'll make executive decisions if forced to...

    Bit too large of a hike for me now, but I'll be there in spirit.

    I'd thought of that. We'll raise a glass to you!

    Feb. 11 and 12 are a bust for me. We'll be entertaining guests for the weekend. Anytime after that works. Middlebury might be a good mid point for most, but I'll go where the crowd goes.

    Gosh - I'm getting younger every day! Oh wait - you're not talking about how I behave....

    OK - how about the weekend of the 18th/19th?

    Sounds great. Just noticed yesterday that an indoor craft brewing festival is scheduled for 2-11 in Burlington. Daughter and brand new grand-daughter live there, and Burlington is on the water.
    Please keep me posted.

    How about American Flatbread, in the Marble Works? Great pizza, good selection of mostly Local microbrews, and a funky post industrial space next to the falls on Otter Creek.

    Feb. 25th at American Flatbread in Middlebury. I'll be there! Are we doing 'spouses included' like last time? My dear wife won't be able to make it, but others might want to join in.

    AFAIK - this is the decision. And Yes on spouses.

    Looks like the 25th of Feb. is the final date. I spoke with John Hartmann this morning and we're both looking forward to it.
    We just need a time. Noon?

    Noon. Do we need to make reservations, John?
    BTW, what does EBS stand for?

    I believe EBS stands for Elbow Bending Session, as in a bunch of guys sitting around, elbows on a table, talking boats.

    Well - it really refers to the activity of raising a beer can/bottle to one's mouth - require the bending of one's elbow. Kinda like doing "12 oz. curls"...

    I'll look into whether or not reservations are required.

    It looks like I can make the trip from Montpelier and join the fun! Training the elbows right now, in fact.

    Thanks for that heads up......there is also the Storm Cafe on Mill St, right on the banks of Otter Creek just below the falls, open for lunch, great food, beer selection includes fine micro brews from Vt and New England, but beer selection won't likely be as long a list as at Flatbread.

    Looks like the Flatbread is only open 5-9 PM due to winter hours, unless I am reading it wrong.http://americanflatbread.com/restaurants/middlebury-vt/
    The Storm Cafe is open at noon. http://www.thestormcafe.com/index.html

    Sounds good to me. I don't drink beer anyway.
