I wish everyday was as fun as this past weekend. A good mix of having fun and relaxing.
Eric and I started off our weekend by spending way too many hours (almost 6!) at Standard Tap. And drinking way too many delicious, expensive beers.
I got to try the Sierra Nevada Exportation. This beer was seriously good and definitely worth seeking out (I think it’s only brewed this one time).
I also got to try Broederlijke Liefde, a collaboration between Sly Fox Brewery and De Proefbrouwerij‘s. While it didn’t blow me away, I was still really psyched to get to try it.
Needless to say, that is ALL we did Friday night.
We woke up Saturday morning and helped our friend Juli move. The awesome news is she was moving out of the Art Museum neighborhood to Northern Liberties!!! It’s going to be awesome having her only a few blocks away.
Her new apartment is a really cute trinity, with REALLY small staircases. Like small, small.
We had a little trouble with some of her furniture. Obviously I helped a lot. By taking a lot of pictures.
But the hardest part was probably wrangling her cats Chuck and Amelia.
We all have the scratch marks to prove it.
After moving Juli treated us to lunch at Dos Segundos. We got paid in margaritas and salads.
All that heavy lifting had us beat and Eric and I lounged on the couch the rest of the day.
Sunday was Father’s Day! Since my dad is in Texas I did the next best thing and Skyped with him.
And then I talked to the dogs. They were very confused.
I’ve written before how Eric has a problem with buying bikes (like when we drove all the way to Connecticut). Well…he bought another bike last week (!), so I told him something had to be done about bike storage. While this isn’t the best solution, atleast 2 bikes are off the floor, out of the 12 or so we own.
We did some more house stuff and then we randomly got a few friends together to come over to eat dinner. Eric manned the grill while we hung out on the deck.
Juli brought over a bottle of Elysian Jasmine IPA. I’m kind of obsessed with this beer right now because it’s sort of tea like. Definitely delicious.
After dinner we all shared this Port Brewing Hot Rocks Lager.
And then we spotted this kitty on the roof a few apartments done. Not sure how he got up there!
