Cold Chillin' is Saturday

We're holding the one-year anniversary version of Cold Chillin' at Jack's (my friend Jordan's bar) in Japantown San Jose. Those who go to it regularly know about it, and as it's a Saturday, I expect that more people will turn out than ever before. We usually hold Cold Chillin' on Tuesdays, but Saturday will be special. We're opening up the back patio, nobody has to work the next day (oh wait, except me).

In their place will be a black slug. I use this multiple times in any project.  If you over
