Southern CA Recap

 Much to do in the big city!  Here is a recap of the activities of the past week in and around the City of Angels...

3/26 (Friday): 
  • Thai Dinner at Ayara.  Be sure to try "When Tigers Cry"
  • "The Fortunate Sons" cheesy tight shiny pants band at The Lighthouse



  • Rock Band.  "Wanted Dead or Alive" is harder than you think.  But I rocked it anyway.
3/27 (Saturday):
  • Baja Sharkeez Mimosa Breakfast.  Free mimosas for an hour after your breakfast purchase. Drink 'em quick!

  • Saying goodbye to Anna, Rich and Simone.  Thanks for visiting us!

3/29 (Monday):
  • Took the Van to Joe's Auto Services to have the transmission looked at.  Ended up getting out the door with only a tune-up, which seems to have fixed the slipping issue.  Thanks, Joe!

  • Pizza

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
