SAVOR the Second Floor

July 6, 2017 0

Last month, I attended SAVOR at the National Building Museum. Colleen, Tierney, and Chelsie all attended as well, but on Saturday. I went on Friday, since I had plans to rock out to Iron Maiden on Saturday (side note: excellent show). It was a bit odd attending a beer festival by myself, as I usually go with my husband or Read More

One of my favorite Spring and Summer activities is going to a baseball game.
