Despite the chilly evening on the day after our big holiday celebration, eight to ten (depending on when you counted) Appalachian members met on the patio at Oskar Blues in Brevard.

As usual the Chubwagon provided great food and the brewery even better beer and soft drinks. The radiant heaters kept most of us warm enough, although our feet appreciated the drive home.


Our next mixer is at Wedge at Foundation, 5 Foundy Street, Asheville, on January 19. This will be inside, so you won't have to thaw your feet afterward.
