    MPC #167 Voting: APRES 1/15-2/11

    Topic: Apres

    We all love it. Just to be clear - in this contest regardless of its translation.... "Apres" can also occur during, or before. Wide open.

    Extra credit to photos that make me want to be there, right now!

    ^^^ Likewise. I went adrenalated1 for variety's sake.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    Skialpy for me.... I like adrenalated's shot better, but it doesn't really convey "apres" to me. More like "that was a fucking awesome run".

    I took a more liberal interpretation of apres, for sure.

    skialpy's shot is great and captures the theme beautifully in the way we usually think of it. I voted for it.

    Edit: also, to clarify, it was a fucking awesome run

    Awesome! Thanks everyone that voted. That was indeed a good day, beers ensued. Next week in the NW looks promising so hopefully more photos to stoke the fire soon. I'll try to get a new topic up tonight.
