This year, we are out with the baseball fans, so please eat dinner before starting out. The first two pubs do serve food, but there is no guarantee of seating.

Without further a do, the line-up:

1. Wynkop Brewing Co.
1536 Wynkoop St. (Wynkoop and 18th St.)
Housed in the historic J.S. Brown Mercantile building, the Wynkoop Brewing Company led the way in the resurgence of Lower Downtown. The interior boasts a warm Colorado pub feel with its hardwood floors, thick timber pillars and pressed tin ceilings. Throw in plenty of great food and park it here.

2. Fado Irish Pub
1735 19th St., Denver, Colorado; Tel. 303.297.0066
The Denver outpost of the national Fado Irish Bar chain does much of the same as its green brethren putting forth some authentic, artery clogging Irish food, heavily stocking the bar with Guinness, ales, whiskey and scotches, and promoting good will and joy through food and drink. This Denver bar is the neighborhood pub for all of the mountain dwelling Irish ex-pats and their descendents who need to be reminded of their homeland occasionally (read nightly). The musical selections, many nights at Fado Irish Pub see live acoustic and Celtic bands play, is as authentic as the food and booze selection-the boxty, especially, are spot on.

3. Nallen’s Irish Pub
1429 Market St., Denver, Colorado; Tel. 303.572.0667
Nallen’s Irish Pub is a straight up Denver bar that doesn’t let any of those pesky foodstuffs get in the way of your daily dosages of Guinness and whiskey. If you’re just into downing a quiet pint at Nallen’s Irish Pub, grab a spot at the bar in the afternoons or early evenings because this Denver bar becomes a Larimer Square hotspot hangout once the sun sets and raucous imbibers are released from their daily pens.

Dear Colleagues,

When you’re packing for Denver, please consider bringing along a printed version of any current job postings for your institution. The annual conference is a wonderful time for networking, and there will be many students, new professionals, and “professionals seeking a change” who would be interested in any opportunities you might know of.

If your suitcase is too full, email your postings to me at, and let me know that you’d like ArLiSNAP to post your job on the conference message board. We’ll also circulate a copy of the postings at the ArLiSNAP meeting. As the group for Art Library Students and New ARLIS Professionals, we’re happy to help you find a great applicant for your great job! While you’re at it, consider going the extra mile and adding your contact information in Denver to the job posting. By doing so, you can invite other conference goers to chat over coffee (or a glass of wine!) and have an informational discussion about current job postings at your institution. You just might connect with your ideal candidate!

See you in Denver!
