New Year’s Eve Thank You List

Thank you, Z’otz, for your Esplanade location, with its 24/7 schedule, its free wi-fi, its things-with-wings on the walls, and its neverending parade of highly interesting humanity. Thank you for a really nice cup of tea. Thank you also for taking such good care of my husband, who preferred to be stationary while I went wandering.

Thank you, Stan and the rest of the crew whose names I didn’t catch at the French Market Restaurant & Bar. I stumbled in, tempted by the smell of boiled seafood, at 11:15–just in time for y’all to start shutting down, but the welcome didn’t suffer a bit for that. The shrimp was excellent and the bloody mary was divine. I mean, seriously, that was the blood mary I’ve been pining for. They don’t know about green bean garnishes in Boulder, let me tell you.

(All those pictures I was taking? No people in them! I swear! Relax!)

Thank you, Trombone Shorty, for providing a vibe that could be felt half a mile down the river. Also, I can’t swear I’ve ever heard anyone incorporate a URL in a rap before. Very catchy and effective. You should use the blog space you got there, though.

Thank you, random strangers in the crowd along the Riverfront, especially y’all handing out the sparklers. That was so very, very cool.

I mean, sparklers!
