Yesterday Nancy and I met in town and we went first to Brian's office to drop some things off and he had a gift certificate to Climate City Brewery, so he gave it to us since I told him that was where we were going... HOW NICE!

Back door:

There are hops growing on a vine along the back parking lot. Didn't know what they were at first.. had to ask. Apparently this is the best climate for growing hops.

We sat out on the patio. It was sooooo nice. Not hot, just perfect.

We each had some of their new pumpkin ale ...

I'm not a beer drinker, but this was good!
Nancy had the Chinook Pub Pretzels... baked jumbo sea salt pretzels served with a whole grain mustard-cheese sauce.

I had the Black and Blue Nachos ... seasoned homemade potato chips topped with blackened beef tenderloin, peppered bacon, caramelized onion-poblano cream sauce, blue cheese, scallions, jack cheese, and fried onions.........
OMGOOOOD! But too much for just me to eat. They serve large portions there. I brought most of mine home. Nancy too! LOL, and these items are listed under "Small Plates". Hmmmmm... let's see... future breakfast lunch and dinner! For you fellas who like man-sized portions, this is the place for you!

Later I ran a few errands in Rogue River... Ace for deer blocks, pharmacy for prescription, and something else I forgot!
Dinner ... ha!
Chair, TV, wine......
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Saturday. Ciao.

PRAISE BE TO GOD!!! How wonderful! So happy for Kristin! I love the celebration the school made for her. It is obvious they love her! What great news!!

You all do find the neatest eating places! Your meal looked so unusual and yummy. Love to have leftovers! I have shrimp scampi with angel hair pasta for my breakfast. Leftovers from Coco's last night! :)

Oh I do remember that infamous morning when the murderer got a not-guilty verdict. We were so upset. I told some of the teachers who came into my kitchen at school that day "Vengeance is mine sayth the Lord". Well, it came to pass and look where he's rotting today! Good!

Praise be to God and all who helped Him make Kristen well. Your happiness shows in all you posted- even the sad news from the Oregon college. We can never make what happened right- but when all we can do is show love through support in tough times- that counts.

The Rogue River area is lucky to have you share what a wonderful place it is.
