    FYI the spirits seminars (besides Lucky’s) are currently scheduled as:

    History of American Whiskeys by Charlie Moore
    A True Experience of Agave by Micheal Martensen
    Pickling, Garnishes, and Gin by Ashley Williams
    Grocer to Glass by Kyle Hilla

    Subject to change but that’s the plan as of two days ago.

  2. Many kids discover who they are and what their passion is
    through these experiences and ultimately find their voice so they can share it with the world.

    However, if you know what you are doing and can properly evaluate the problem with the
    customer, you can charge far more money than for just a buff polish and wax.

    If your Chevy is in need of repairs and you do not have the funds to hire a mechanic it
    may be time to break out the tools and give automotive repairs a try.
    I’ll limit it to the in camera meter but the same applies to all meters in general.
