Today, I’ll review It’s a Grind Coffee House which is located at 2000 Boulderstone Way in Cary, NC. I have lived in North Carolina for nearly two years, and my visit today was only my second since moving here. It’s not because I don’t like the coffee, but because I either make coffee at home or visit Dunkin’ Donuts. Though Dunkin’ Donuts is TERRIBLE down here in North Carolina, I’m from New Hampshire, and that’s just how it is. I grew up on their coffee, and even worked at a variety of Dunkin’ Donuts growing up.
While I applaud the creativity, you will NEVER find me working on a truck being held up by two rocks, a small piece of wood, and a $10 jack! It is difficult to tell from the photo, but only three of the jack’s wheels are even touching. Talk about a very creative and completely foolish solution to auto repair!
Last Saturday, I went tubing down the Neuse River with a large group of folks. I had not been tubing for many years. In fact, the last time I recall tubing was as a child with my mom down the river at a campground. We used old school “black rubber” tubes that we rented from the campground. It was five bucks to keep those tubes for 24 hours, which I thought was a pretty fair deal at the time.
I had this beer at the Red Monkey Tavern in the Crabtree Valley Mall. What a delicious brew! Has anyone else tried it? Sledgehammer Stout is brewed by Huske Hardware House Brewing Company in Fayetteville, NC. I love supporting local breweries, especially when they produce a brew as delicious as this! This beer’s delicious smokey mocha flavor left me agreeing to another pint. It is such a deliciously smooth brew, almost like sipping a glass full of melted coffee ice cream. Talk about AMAZING!
CONCLUSION: If you love a good stout, you MUST
try this beer!
Today, I’m going to review Brooklyn Boys Pizzeria, which is located at 1260 Northwest Maynard Road in Cary, NC. I purchased a LivingSocial deal to Brooklyn Boys Pizzeria several months ago. I was reviewing my deals and noticed it was expiring soon. Being as I am frugal and did not want to lose the promotional value, I used it later that week on the date it was said to expire. Talk about a close call!
This Saturday, I will be participating in an event called MuckRuckus. Taking place at the Schneider Electric Facility in Knightdale, NC, the 2012 MuckRuckus MS Carolinas is sure to be a blast. Though it will be fun, the true reason braving the FIVE mile, THIRTY-FOUR obstacle is to raise money for the National MS Society. Continue reading
A few nights ago, I found myself craving some Thai food. I have visited a number of Thai restaurants in the area, including Thai’s Noodle in Morrisville, Thai Cafe in Durham, and the two Sawasdee Thai restaurants in Raleigh. Tonight, a quick perusal of Groupon NOW lead me to try Tom Yum Thai in Cary. Continue reading
Just four days before the Coca-Cola 600, I was lucky enough to score a pair of free tickets. A few of my bowling teammates got free tickets from a friend but were unable to go. They asked me if I wanted them, and I said heck yes! With the short notice, I could not find anyone to go with. I did make a few attempts to give away the remaining ticket, but I could not find anyone who wanted it. Continue reading
