Sure, it will be cold, but hey, it's a beer parade and a party!


Lindsey and I will be in the parade tonight, running the 5k and pouring beer tomorrow, and volunteering from 10-2:30 on Sunday! Hope to see some Hive13 members down there!


While I still haven’t made to Hive and don’t know any of you yet, I’ll be in the parade today and down there tonight. I’m also running the 5K in the morning.
