i guess all i seem to do is drink and eat

i’m kicking ass and taking names.

7) address book issues: well, i’ve officially taken my old, nasty, worn down address book and entered all the information into my computer. now its just time to buy or build an address book/holder of my own.

18) i’ve completed another item and it feels glorious! my goal was to eat at 20 new to me restaurants, and i did! i went to the melting pot in providence in the end of december (the 28th or 29th) with mrs. emerson, who not only is one of my best friends, but my old roommate. after going there i decided i want to cook all the food i eat for the rest of my life in boiling liquid although i won’t because it is not practical and then the twentieth restaurant was la tasca in alexandria on new years eve with sa, jim and amy. it was yummy in my tummy. both places were. i get so excited when i finish an item! i’m actually going to keep working on this item because i liked it so much. i will consider it complete for the 101 in 1001 challenge, but i want to see how many new-to-me restaurants i will actually go to.

26) another goal was to drink at 5 different breweries. i planned on going to one with friends while i was on vacation in VA. we decided on the shenandoah brewery in alexandria. well, we went and while i can tell you it seemed like a cool place, i can’t tell you much else. you see, they claim that its a place you can go and hang out and eat and drink while you wait for your turn to make beer….  but that just didn’t happen. we were there for almost 45 minutes waiting for something to happen. no one came over to us and took our order or asked us if we were feeling the itch to brew some beer. and when we went to the bar, we were told they’d be with us “in one second” and just flat out ignored us the rest of the time. maybe the just didn’t like northerners. and there were 4 out of 5 northerners there, so…who knows. anyway- since i didn’t get the whole brewery experience, but did spend some time there, i decided to consider it 1/2 a visit. i managed to go to another “brewery” called Hops that day, so i’ve technically knocked one whole brewery off this goal. the second place we went was more of a restaurant than a brewhouse, but the beer sampler was super cheap and the beer was pretty darn good. plus they had a beer with ‘alligator” in the name, and we all know how much i love gators 😉
