Every year, Chad and I attend the Great American Beer Festival. It is where our discussions of Big Texas Beer Fest originated from. We purchase tickets as ordinary festival-goers, we plan our Denver trip around the four sessions, we make notes on which breweries we want to hit while we are there.
The morning of the festival, we order a pancake flight from Snooze, we pound all the water we can, and we make our walk to the Denver Convention Center. It’s become a tradition, and we don’t plan on breaking tradition any time soon. GABF, much like our Big Texas Beer Fest, has become a part of our lives. Continue reading

The name sounded as if it was a sandwich choice back East, like a hoagie, grinder or hero, but this was not the case. The Zeppelin is a unique product devised by these guys. Continue reading

This is the time of year when everything is infused with pumpkin. From lattes to beer, nothing escapes the gourd’s perfumed treatment. Personally, I prefer my pumpkin in pie form, or one of several delicious savory versions in Dallas such as the kadu at Nora on Greenville Avenue.
Kadu is one of Nora’s signature dishes that is made from sauteed pumpkin, garlic yogurt and an optional meat sauce. I always opt. Continue reading
