As you guys know, we'll be in Key West to ring in the new year. Fate would have it our flights get in quite early and once you get to Key West there is nothing better to do than start drinking. The second the wheels hit the ground, Patty and I have decided to embark on an informal bar crawl at our favorite watering holes.
We've heard the bars have loaded up on Resignation Brewery's new KCCO Gold Lager to quench your island thirst. If you're in town on Monday, December 29th, we're looking forward to raising a glass with y'all at one of the most magical places in the world.
Here's what we're thinking.
No need to get any tickets for this, it's just a good ol' fashion day of drinking.

For the fourth year in a row theCHIVE is spending the new year celebrating in Key West. The nationwide kickoff for KCCO Gold Lager will be well underway and we'll be bringing a ton of it with us to the southern most point in the ol' US of A. If you've ever made it to the Conch Republic you've no doubt visited The Porch in the downtown area of Old Town Key West.
The party will go from 9pm-2am and Sekond Nature will be playing all night long. You have to be 21+ to attend and tickets are $15 so start making those resolutions for 2015.

Next Saturday, we are headed to Tallahassee to party our faces off with the Captain and kick a few Black Lagers back. One issue though, we don't have a venue yet. This should come as no surprise to anyone as we are not very smart people. These things do tend to work themselves out, but we need your help.
If you are a owner or general manager of a bar who can fit 300 or more Chivers into your establishment, shout us a holler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the next two weeks in Austin, there's a little thing called South by Southwest. It's only one of the biggest film and music festivals in the world, and we wanted to kick it off with a few drinks with all the Chivers in the area.
We'll be at Old School Bar and Grill for happy hour today from 4-7PM CST. Come out and throw a few back with us. The Black Lager will be flowing and Mac's cat may make a guest appearance!

The moment has arrived. Tickets for theCHIVE's first-ever international official meetup are officially available! We have no idea what to expect from our Chivers on the Emerald Isle, but one thing is for sure, we're all going to get after it.
Tickets and info for the Dublin Chive Meetup on Saturday, February 22nd are available RIGHT HERE.

We weren't joking, theCHIVE really is taking the show on the road to Ireland in a few weeks. We're hopping the pond and heading to one of the best spots in town, Church Bar, to kick off our first ever international meetup on Saturday, February 22nd. We decided to let Mac come along, so we apologize ahead of time to the whole of Ireland.
Tickets will officially go on sale next Wednesday, February 5th at 12PM GMT. We'll see all our Irish Chivers soon!

If you live in Key West you know that theCHIVE has been coming to the Keys every year to ring in the New Year and defile ourselves properly with our friends on the crazy island.
This year, we're having an official New Year's Eve bash at the best bar in the US of A, The Green Parrot. The Green Parrot is an island bar for the people, the doors are always open to anyone so this is not a ticketed event. Just come as you are and make sure you arrive early ready to party.
The party starts around 9 pm-ish and finishes around ????ish. We will have badass limited-edition island KCCO's available at the event - you'll see them all around the island when you arrive and I get drunk enough to hand them out to Chivers as I bar hop.
(You can find cases of KCCO Black Lager at The Green Parrot Wine and Spirits Bar for your hotel room boozing when you arrive).
For all of my friends in the Keys, this is the reminder that the merry band of misfits are all coming. I rarely have my phone on me in Key West - y'all know where to find me.
If last year was any indication, this is going to be a HUGE party. See y'all in Key West!
