We met tonight with our friend Michelle to get some coaching about business plan writing. This is a challenging topic for me (for everyone?) so I wanted to make sure our meeting location served adult beverages. I found Will Call on a list of Denver spots that have Happy Hour until 7 p.m. It met location requirements and appeared to have appropriate seating for a working dinner (big booths) so we decided to give it a try.
Happy Hour was a bust, as they had recently removed the only beer on the HH list that interested me and they did not have my next choice in stock. I did finally decide on a Prost Weißbier, which was fine, but not a HH deal. The decor was kinda cool, though, and the fact that the place was pretty empty made meeting pleasant and relaxed.
A big bonus of choosing this establishment was that they serve arepas. I had never eaten an arepa before tonight, so it counts as a new experience! For those who don’t know (like me until yesterday), an arepa is essentially a cornmeal flatbread. At Will Call, as in Venezuela, it is split and filled to make a sandwich. I had the chicken RiNo, which also has cheese, onion, and spicy peppers. I was glad I chose the avocado salsa (essentially guacamole) for my sauce, as it balanced the corn-iness of the arepa nicely. I don’t know if I’d go out of my way to find arepas, but I would definitely eat them again. The sweet potato fries were good too.
We learned a lot about business plans, talked about many ideas for the business and its marketing, and had a good visit with a friend. And a new experience. A good evening, all in all.
