Default After Hours/Weekend CO2

So, I ran out of CO2 this evening at 5pm.

I want beer this weekend. I have parties this weekend. I'm a dumbass. I've called the usual suspects, but no one seems to be open on weekends or in evenings.

Anyone have any tricks up their sleeve?

btw, I'm in Albuquerque, NM if that helps anyone.

Find a buddy with CO2.

Find a Home Brew Shop that fills. Mine is open on the weekend.

Just some ideas I could think up.

Hi

Check with your local bartender. It's a common problem and he may have a CO2 guy on speed dial.

Paintball stores, welding shop, lhbs, big greenhouse.

Your LHBS should carry the little gizmo for carbing a party keg. http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/s...2-charger.html If your beer is carbed, it doesn't take much to serve.

I have 8 carboys, 8 cornies, 5-1 gal jugs, 200 wine bottles, 10 cases of beer bottles and a nice assortment of flip tops....My goal is to keep them at least 50% occupied
