Hello, Doormat!

Because we don’t have to be out of our apartment until September 30, we aren’t moving all of our heavy furniture to the new house until next Saturday, September 28.  We’ll be moving the smaller items ourselves over the next week.  Ah, the benefits of moving exactly 2.1 miles down the same street you live […]

Our Aviator Brewery Adventure

Jay and I decided to have another Living Social/Groupon inspired adventure on Saturday.  This time, we visited Aviator Brewery in Fuquay Varina, NC.  Their logo looked familiar, but upon looking at the list of places where I can find Aviator beer, I’ve never been to any of them nor are any of them in Raleigh.  Unless […]
