Port Brewing - Santa's Little Helper

A bit pricey for a 12oz bomber but still quite good. Not as much bourbon as I prefer but not too sweet making it a well a balanced imperial stout. Love the label.

Keeping Manufacturing Jobs in the USA with Veterans

DNKB Inc. has a goal - and that is to become the strongest U.S. based manufacturer today, and the fuel behind that goal is their multi-talented, pre-trained team that relies on U.S. veterans and other underutilized Americans who really want to work.

The Milk Carton Kids

Great show at the Mesa Arts Center. They must get tired of being compared to +Simon & Garfunkel but then again, they were great and so are these "kids".

Over a year since I have ridden my mountain bike. I don't recall it being so challenging and painful.

A very unique spot in town for entrepreneurs and start-up businesses. The businesses in this incubator have access to high-skilled experts and resources that will make their business successful. Quite impressive. This is a great model for all business incubators.

A big space but the sound system is not great. Waited 45 minutes to get our first drink order. They have some bugs to work out.

A bit dated and in need of a renovation but you can't beat the location and views if you are a golfer.

Good food but the service was sub-par. Not a collaborative wait staff. If you get a bad server, no one else wanted to help out.
