Hey, how clever is this? Rather than letting all those hoods & wires from cork-stoppered beers go to waste, our fellow blog author, Adam, is now recycling them into tiny pieces of wrought iron furniture. As you can see from the photo here, we are now the proud owners of a Parisian sidewalk bistro set […]

As many of you already know, this past Saturday, January 17th was the (quasi) annual pub crawl sponsored by Churchill’s Pub and Grille here in North County San Diego. For Beer Molly this is one of the seven or eight highlights of the year (right behind her birthday, Christmas, and any other event at which […]
