Library + Bridget's Fantasies - Dinner Plus Drinks #123
Things that make Bridget happy and the Lake Geneva Public Library came together this week to make some interesting threads of conversation. We hope you enjoy listening to our journey through our weeks, plus all the fun and games we have along the way.We have a really fun game this week. Seriously, make sure you listen!The Lake Geneva Public Library re-opened this week after months after renovation. If you're local, go check it out!We checked out Drinking French by David Lebovitz from said Library and made a Triple Ménace cocktail from Gin, Lillet Blanc, and Yellow Chartreuse (a substitute for Suze). It was delicious!Bridget shared this cool organization called Guerrilla Gardening that promotes growing beautiful and tasty things in public spaces. How would you feel about booking a plane ticket that then becomes a bus ticket? Well. It's happening. United is trying to put a positive spin on this development, but Nick isn't having it.If Bridget is using this coffee cup, maybe give her a little space!Nick is a huge fan of the beers they're making at Low Daily Beer in Burlington, WI, especially their Table Beer. It's called 'Buckets' because you can drink buckets of it because it's only 3.5% ABV and delicious.When you want to listen to radio stations from other cities - maybe like Seattle, for instance - Bridget recommends using the Audacy Radio app!Shout out to The Dating Divas for coming up with this at home version of The Price is Right and thank you to Shannon for playing along!Thank you so much for listening, we hope you have a great week.

Nick spent a few relaxing days in Washington, DC and in this episode we talk about the trip, the food, the highs, the lows, the impending threat of nuclear war, and lots more! We hope you enjoy the chat about a great city to visit. Here are some of Nick's favorite places to visit in Washington, DC:International Spy Museum - I went to this after we recorded, and my goodness, it was so fun! Super highly recommend. National Gallery of Art - they have an impressive collection, are a well-run organization, and [usually] have a delicious gelato bar.National Museum of the American Indian - I love this museum on the mall; the food is great and the way the present a complicated story is exceptional.Smithsonian's National Zoo - it's smaller than you think, the layout isn't great, but I love pandas, and if you want to see pandas, you need to go here!United States Holocaust Memorial Museum - this place should be required for everyone in the country to witness.There are plenty of places to go, but those are a few highlights. I'm always happy to share things that I enjoy and provide recommendations if you're traveling, so just reach out if you have any questions!Have a great week everybody, thanks for joining us.
