Our New Gathering Place, Rosie O’ Grady’s #ReviewCrew @Restaurant_Com #sp

I must have driven past Rosie O' Grady's a dozen times or more since they opened. Thanks to surfing Restaurant.com, my family now has a new place to gather for some laughs and really good food. It was a beautiful evening, so we opted to sit outside. They have a rather large outdoor seating area with a covered, and lit patio, a tv, and a separate bar. The nice seating around a couple of fire-pits … [Read more...]

A little something for everyone @ The Next Chapter Bookstore & Bistro #ReviewCrew @Restaurant_Com #sp

Breakfast is served, without the mess or breaking our budget thanks to @Restaurant_Com #ReviewCrew #sp

The week between Christmas and New Year's Day is usually a busy one around here. The kids are home from school, and my office is typically closed for the week.
