Neil and I hope you have a great holiday weekend (about time for a 3-day weekend don’t you think?) and we’ll be back Tuesday after our food-filled respite. My best friend Rachel is coming to town with her boyfriend Luke and puppy Jake, so we’ll have a full house and lots of puppy play date time. Our cats are really going to hate us now! Rachel is a fellow foodie, so there will be tons of cooking and food-related posts next week, and per some gentle scolding from some local readers via Twitter, we will try some new and different beer …maybe.
