Watched the Inauguration at my parents' place while trying (fairly unsuccessfully due to a weak wireless router) to work remotely.

Headed back to the office and watched part of the parade on

Next, off to Takah Sushi, the only restaurant in town advertising an Inauguration Night party. Since Takah's my favorite, it would have been my first choice anyhow. Awesome Obama roll, yellowtail, albacore and nori on the outside with snow crab and cucumber inside. Takah did a nice job of showing some spirit with all of their staff dressed as someone who has slept in the Lincoln Bedroom (or some loose interpretation thereof).

3 glasses of Riesling later, we decided to move on to Belly Up for Jes Grew, a local band comprised of friends.

Since it was a bit early for the show to begin, we stopped at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for another drink. Another Riesling and a few sips of Steve's Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey.

Finally, Belly Up just as the band started to play. Another glass of wine (Merlot), lots of dancing until I hit the wall.

Sitting on a stool, leaning on a wall, falling asleep in the middle of a concert . . .

Hey, in addition to 5 glasses of wine and some whiskey, I did get up at 5 am!

Ducked out during the encore and just caught the bus home as it was pulling away.

Woke up with a killer headache and putzed around all day.

You know, 'cause I'm in recovery . . .
