Francisville Pop Up Pool



The weeks have been flying by this summer.  My days of being a full-time student and part-time worker are winding down, but I'm excited for the change.  I've been spending my time at the Francisville Pop Up Pool, a little public pool in my neighborhood of N. Philly, and enjoying the days I have free before the reality of next month sets in.

I'm about to embark on a 4 day motorcycle ride to the Adirondack Mountains in New York state with my dad.  

I plan to eat an ice cream cone from every stand along the way.  Stay tuned, keep enjoying your summer.

Summer So Far...







Summer has been consuming, busy, stressful, liberating, fun, healthy, and everything in between.  But fear not, regular posting to resume shortly.  A motorcycle trip in the works for next month.  Beach trips scattered in here.  Cheers to a lovely summer to you.

Early Summer























I spent a couple of days back home.  First order of business was ice cream.  Then, between rain showers and playing with the dog, we managed to split some firewood.  Oh and of course, ended the week out with a little bit of ice cream for everyone.

Beer Review (54): El Sully by 21st Amendment Brewery

El Sully | 21st Amendment Brewery

Brewery21st Amendment Brewery Beer: Mexican Lager | Beer Advocate Score: 80 Abv: 4.8%

Oh heyyyyyy, are you ready for a tasty new offering from 21st?  Yeah, you'll like this one.  It's perfect for heading to the beach, super smooth, light and refreshing.  Is this a complex, craft beer you'd expect from 21st?  No, its a much simpler beer than that, but done with a superior quality compared to those other cervezas that are popular for regular beach go-ers ;)

Donut, Anyone?


When in Philadelphia there are a couple of things that you naturally cannot pass up.  Number 1 on your list of must-do, must-see, must-eat would of course be Beiler's Donuts in the Reading Terminal Market.  Can anything be more heavenly than the Blueberry Fritter?  No, no there isn't, sorry.  Here's a little bit of history about the baking process and culture behind the best damn donut in town.

My advice, grab a bike share, hop aboard and pedal your way to RTM.  Hit Beiler's first and stroll through the stalls inside.  Once you've hit sensory overload, ride away with a stomach full of sugar and find a good cup of coffee near Rittenhouse.

Seven Kingdoms at Eastern State Penitentiary, Philadelphia!




Brewery Ommegang, who has been releasing Game of Thrones inspired brews, will be making their way to the Eastern State Penitentiary here in Philadelphia, right in my neighborhood! There will be fire dancing, DJs, and *cue the theme song*, your very own Iron Throne to sit on!  You'll see from this post I was loving the 2013 Ommegang GoT beer, so I'm sure the next batch in honor of the new season will be just as delightful.

The festivities will be held on April 14th, $55 per person. SOLD OUT
