The Fan Van Tour is a two-week road trip where SmartWool employee Jeff Snow is piloting a sock-filled van around the U.S. in search of fun.

We were in Denver last night for the first stop on the tour, a send-off party of sorts at Ace Restaurant & Ping Pong Hall.

The joint serves some mean Korean food. We grabbed some swag, drank some beer, and hung out with the local crowd on a workday night. Here are a few pics from the fun.

Next stop is Chicago on July 20th, where Snow will park the van at a Muddy Buddy Race. Find him there for free socks, beer, and a good time guaranteed. —Sean McCoy

—The Fan Van Tour is scheduled to stop in Minneapolis at headquarters on Monday, July 22. We’ll be organizing a bike ride/race and an after party on our patio to chill under the urban stars along the city’s famous Greenway Bike Path. Monitor the GearJunkie Facebook page for details on the Monday night event.
