Our 9:30AM stop was Barnacles on 9th and Hermosa for an eye-opening "Energizer" cocktail. Our friendly barkeep at Barnacles described the drink as "basically a red bull and vodka, with a splash of grenadine". The Hoosier-red concoction was quite a hit, as our group swelled to roughly 40-strong.

The party was in full swing before 10am. Not a bad way to start off a Saturday!!
