Like Dean and Jack decades ago, Dan Gibson and I will be driving to Denver tomorrow. Will we be high on benzedrine? No. Will we be attending the International Christian Retail Show at the Denver Convention Center? Most assuredly. Will we be sampling some of the finest breweries Colorado has to offer? You bet your sweet sassafras.
We'll also be glad-handing, making connections, and generally absorbing the schlockfest that is the Christian retail industry. It should be fun. With massive publishers like Thomas Nelson conspicuously absent, there are rumors 2009's convention may be one of the last. We shall see. I'm also planning an essay recapping the events, so it'll be fun to act as a real life reporter.
If you happen to be attending this convention as well, or have suggestions for where Dan and I should eat or drink in the Mile High City, just state so in the comments or get a hold of me on Facebook. Maybe you can join us for some kolache!
