It is with great sadness that we report the news that CLUBJACK in Denver, Colorado, has closed its doors and will not be reopening when the current health emergency subsides.
This is especially sad to report given that in January we were gleefully celebrating their move to a larger space and they had welcomed FIFTY members for their first meeting there, some of whom attended the event having discovered the group here at BuddyBate.
Unfortunately, as this crisis continues, it’s harder for clubs to maintain their position, especially if they have overheads such as venues of their own. As we all know, events such as these will not be protected by local authorities in the way restaurants and bars might.
I hope, as CLUBJACK Denver organizer Jimbo does, that when this is all resolved and life can begin to get back to normal, there will be opportunities to rebuild our local social groups wherever they’ve been lost.
On a personal note, I will truly miss everyone who helped make ClubJack a reality and who attended our events. I had the distinct privilege to get to know many of you well. You have all brought me immense joy and warmth; your passion, enthusiasm, and energy will live in my heart forever. I cannot thank you all enough for allowing me to share in your experiences at the club; I will miss you more than I can express here. Perhaps someday in the future, something similar to ClubJack will emerge like the Phoenix and I hope that I will be able to see and bate with you all again.
Be well, take care of yourself and one another.
I would like to finish by thanking Jimbo for providing the men of Denver (and guests) with a safe and comfortable space for them to meet, and for working so hard over the years to create what CLUBJACK had become. While I never have the opportunity to pay a visit myself I know from reports that he built a great community space and his work was appreciated by all. Their club really did seem to be a perfect example of what’s possible when guys come together to create a venue for this kind of social sharing.
Please join me in wishing Jimbo and the men of CLUBJACK all the best. Let’s all look forward to better times when we can resume our social lives and likely welcome thousands more men who’ve had the time to realize what they’re missing.
