Denver 07: The Preparations For Denver Begin or “Put This Liver On Hold For Me, Will You?”

This post from old friend Mike Jones over at Variety’s festival blog The Circuit reminded me of the following, slightly redacted version of an email I recently received from two of the more creative, mischevious, deviant, stellar-of-character and stand-up individuals that I know:
Dear Uncle Monty,
If indeed you believe, as your site states, that “young girls and gin may be the cure”, then you are in for some serious trouble at the Late Night Lounge this year. We have secured Bombay Sapphire as the headliner and peppered the remaining shelf space with such gems as *yummy booze, here*. As far as the young lasses go, we’re having them imported from the area’s more devious centers of low morale and high heel. Get your liver and other vitals in gear, ol’ sport. We mean to do you harm.
Yours in christ,
*redacted* & *redacted*
LNL goons

I think the phrase “Be afraid. Be very afraid” is quite apt. I know. I’ve been there:

Oh me, oh my. Has it really already been a year? Does my liver know it? Is it planning any extra defenses against the onslaught of booze coming its way over the ten days? Only time will tell, my friends. If you remember, last year the Late Night Lounge staff awarded me a certificate for Drunken Jackassery:

This year I plan on getting the inaugural Richard Turner Perfect Attendance Award. I have some video of the man hisself accepting last year’s honor, his 4th in a row (hence the re-naming) but…erm…..I left it in my hard drive at home….Yeah.
So back to this year, here are LNL Big Whigs Chris Dyer and Alex Reshetniak eyeing me suspiciously. I think it was because I didn’t have a drink in my hand and thus, they didn’t recognize me.
