The event was scheduled for 7:30, we were there somewhere close to 5ish and about 1/3 of the chairs were already taken. Hunger was an issue, however, so we headed back down and across the fake street that went through the little strip mall type place we were in and entered a restaurant. Once we were inside, we realized we were in a brewery/restaurant and it was SO cool.
Those are the giant vats of beer things
(Heidi is ducking b/c she's camera shy
but I managed to get a good pose out of her eventually)
and we all know how I don't do good taking pics of me
so this is as good as it got
I wasn't sure which of their brews I wanted for sure, so they brought me tiny little taster glasses.
Then, when I made a choice, I was afraid I'd bitten off more than I could chew - so to speak. (ordered taller than I could drink?) Not sure how to make that apply to a drink.
I didn't waste any, though, and then it was back to the book store, which was packed to the gills and getting more packed by the second. Heidi and I got a couple of the only chairs left and held them for quite awhile, since we got back there around 6 or so. Regardless of the crowdedness, though, we were all very happy to see her when she arrived.
Heidi took my picture with her. I'm holding my socks in progress
