I’m not made for pavin’ long roads. I ain’t cut out to climb high line poles. But I’m pretty good at drinkin beer.
Our office has a collective anticipation for Thursday nights.
During the summer in Lodi, the city shuts down the main drag, and there is a pretty sizeable farmers market featuring a ton of fruit and veggie vendors. There also is live music, a beer and wine garden and an area with brats, hummus and other tasty treats.
But we really only care about one thing. The Dancing Fox. This place is a lovely restaurant, bakery and winery more reminiscent of Napa than Lodi.
We love this place because they keep unique beers on tap. Oh, and we get free glasses! I love free glasses! Well, it’s not really free, but you pay an extra $1 or so and you get to keep a little keepsake of your evening out. I have a pantry of these pint glasses, which one of these days I’ll have to blog about. But for now, back to Thursday nights.
As a nerd in college, I never really got to experience the party atmosphere because usually I was at the college paper, hyped up on Mountain Dew and writing or editing.
So now that I have a real job, it’s time to party.
I swear we know how to party better than this. After our friend, Joelle, moved onto a new job this July in Bakersfield, we started taking a pic every week of one of us looking sad. So we decided to do a baby photo shoot with that theme. Katie and Dan did a good job of looking uninterested.
Maybe next time we’ll work on happy pictures.
