Pearl beer always reminds me of my Granny. It was her drink of choice. Well, Pearl Light. Since tomorrow is her birthday—and if she were still with us, she’d be 100!—I thought I would share some news about her favorite beer. Unless you’re a Texan, you probably have never even heard of Pearl or Pearl … Continue reading Pearl Beer.
New York City streets are filled with a lot of things: people, dogs, trash, mysterious things you’re better off not knowing what they are…but my favorite things NYC sidewalks offer are Chalkboard Art. I mean honestly, when it’s in the mid-90’s (or mid-30s Celsius), who could ask for anything more (aside from beer and a … Continue reading Chalkboard Art: The Simple Things in Life
I know I have been talking quite a bit about beaches and guess what?!?!? I have found the perfect way to get EVERYONE–that’s right, EVERYONE–a beach body this summer! And the best part is that it doesn’t require a crazy ass diet that turns you into a raging Cookie Monster by the end of day … Continue reading Sunday Comics: Beach Body
In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way!). As such, I’ve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday Beer Flights!
New York City streets are filled with a lot of things: people, dogs, trash, mysterious things you’re better off not knowing what they are…but my favorite things NYC sidewalks offer are Chalkboard Art. Appropriate for Fleet Week, I think. Have a great Memorial Day Weekend! Continue reading Chalkboard Art: Problem Solving
Happy New Year! Okay, okay I know I’m a taaaad bit late, but…it’s still January, so I’m not that late, right?!?!? In an effort to not scream down the house or throw things at the television during today’s Cowboy game, I thought during halftime I might share one of those “getting to know you” quizzes circulating … Continue reading 60 Questions.
This month’s wine writing challenge is TRAVEL, as selected by last month’s winner: the hilarious and enlightening Loie of Cheap Wine Curious. Of course, my first thought was to write about Napa, the first place I traveled for wine–but then I remembered I’ve already written about my trip and since I haven’t had the chance … Continue reading Have Wine? Will Travel!
Alright, the guac is prepared and the beer is cold….now all that is left is–The Commercials! Oh yeah and of course, the game too (I mean, you do have to regular allotments of time to refill the snacks!). To help get you prep and get you in the spirit, I’ve found a collection of some of … Continue reading A Super (bowl) Sunday Comics
I know you’re thinking “what a silly question,” but an appropriate one for this post…because a) wine why not? and b) Elizabeth of Traveling Wine Chick, the winner of the last Monthly Wine Writing Challenge, selected the theme for this month’s Challenge to be CHOICES. Everyday we make thousands of choices–some are subconscious, some are instinctual, some … Continue reading MWWC #19: To Wine Or Not To Wine?
Just kidding…no such thing! After an afternoon of wandering around downtown Minneapolis, April & I met up with a friend at the Smack Shack. We started the feast with a lobster guacamole appetizer. I will admit it took a couple of bites to wrap my head around eating guacamole and lobster together. Once I … Continue reading Lobstah Overload!
