Telluride: M v Hawaii Game Meetup

Submitted by Esterhaus on August 26th, 2016 at 6:08 PM

Some of us alumnae are attending the Telluride film fest over Labor Day. There will be a small group in town watching the Hawaii game together at the Brown Dog, former Wolverine football player Jeff Smokevitch's award-winning pizza pub:

Please join us in camaraderie as we root for our favorite team. I'm buying some Detroit-style pizzas and perhaps, just meh-bee, a round or so of drinks. Hope to see you mountain and film types then and there.

Go Blue!

I was unaware that "some" and "bunch" were completely exclusive of each other, probably because they're not.

It is just as correct to look at 8 cats and "there are some cats over there" as it is to say "there are a bunch of cats over there."

And, as for reading comprehension, the quotes are indicating a specific type of post that is common on this board, not directly referencing the OPs exact statements.

Behind enemy lines never looked so sweet. View is from the top of Koko Head, looking towards Waikiki and Diamond Head.

No viewing party though. I like to enjoy the games from the confines of my apartment at 6:00am local time. Best time of the day to watch football. And a Michigan win sets the mood for the rest of the weekend.

for the game, and opening weekend on the slopes!



No, that's a lie, I'll be binge drinking in a warehouse in West Oakland. 

Anyone is welcome to come by, but it's BYOB.

I think Colorado is a great place to ski by most standards, but it has long seemed as overrated as Utah is underrated. I believe that's mostly the LDS factor, which matters little when one is measuring quality of skiing. (I'm too old to place much value on "night life.")

Utah's important features IMO:

1. Many hills within an easy drive of SLC and different kinds of experience (and $). Powder Mountain, for example, is vastly different from Deer Valley. Logan != SLC != Park City

2. You have much of what you'd expect to find in a big metropolitan area available to you. No "company stores" at remote resorts or anything resembling them ...

3. Related to point 2, lodging of all levels can be found (Motel 6 near the airport right up to the Cliff Lodge at Snowbird).

Smokevitch opened another place in Denver a little over a year ago. In my biased opinion, it is absolutely the best pizza in town. If Brown Dog is anything like Blue Pan, the pizza will be world-class.
