cocobird and I just scored 4x$200 fee-free Visa GCs each at Office Depot. 5x UR per dollar. More on the rack.

And we finally got to see Cocaine Bear.

I'll probably be getting to the Hyatt around 5:30. What's the plan for happy hour? If there isn't a plan, there should be one

Happy Hour

Chevy Chase Inn
833 E Euclid

Whatever you have in front of you at 5:30, you get a free one. Back patio is nice.

I think you’d have to walk pretty briskly to do that in 30.

I am driving, see you there.

Definitely worth a visit.


Icelandic Horse Training, Boarding, Lessons, Shows and More
For those going, should we plan to meet at a certain time? Maybe get there at about 10:30?

I just booked the 1PM Bulleit tour. I think i'll visit the icelandic horses, then get some lunch in Shelbyville, then head over to Bulleit

Planning to eat breakfast at the Hyatt around 9 then head to the horse farm in Shelbyville with a stop at Liquor Barn on the way. I currently have one extra breakfast voucher.
