CRL Associates chief operating officer and Denver City Council hopeful Roger Sherman held his annual toast to the staff at The Palm restaurant in the Tabor Center Friday night.
The seven-year tradition started when an unexpected winter blizzard derailed Sherman’s flight plans and cancelled his trip to Chicago. He diverted to The Palm with his friend and co-worker Cathie Greig, who again joined Sherman at Friday’s sip soiree.
Sherman, Greig and co-workers at local government relations powerhouse CRL Associates raised a glass of 2001 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon with the staff at The Palm – from managers to dishwashers — who crammed inside the bar for the much-anticipated occasion financed by Sherman.
“We have so much to be thankful for, and this has become something we look forward to each Christmas,” Sherman said. The toasters tipped back two jeroboam (double magnums) of the Jordan Cab.
