Quick Stowe, VT area recommendations

A few weeks ago, I spent some time in Stowe, VT for work. I went out a few days early with Sarah for a quick mini-vacation. This morning one of my co-workers sent me e-mail asking for brewery and restaurant recommendations. As long as I typed it up for him, I thought I’d repost it …

Must visit bar review and Photo 80: The Meddlesome Moth

Today I went with some people to The Meddlesome Moth in Dallas.  Its a damn shame I discovered this place on my last night here instead of my first, otherwise I would have just been there every day as much as possible.  The image for today is of the first flight I ordered which was …

Beer, it kicks ass!

There is an awesome bar in in Washington, D.C. called the Brickskeller. Its my kinda place.  Hell, even their domain name is lovethebeer.com.

Yes… Yes, it is!

For a combined Father’s Day / Birthday gift, I got a Canon Powershot SD630.  I call it mine, but I guess its the whole family’s.  :)  We still have our Canon Powershot G3 and love it, but we wanted something small we could carry in a purse or backpack without it being too heavy.  We …

You love the Red Sox, but have they ever loved you back?

Last night, Sarah and I watched Fever Pitch.  The movie was a light romantic comedy and was entertaining.  It has Jimmy Fallon as an insane RedSox fan and his relationship with a woman and how the two mix and match, or don’t as the case may be. Anyway, a lot of the movie takes place …
