“Live Free, Drink Craft:” A Great IPA on Tap

That’s the slogan of Stoneface Brewing Company located down by the seacoast between Durham and Portsmouth.  I learned about this craft brewery earlier this summer as my best buddy and I spent the better part of an hour each day cozied up in two backyard Adirondack chairs testing mostly local India Pale Ales.  And the really […]

How Sweet It Is!

I am a lover of sweets. Cookies in particular. Cookies involving chocolate most definitely. Cruising down an aisle of the Lebanon Co-Op, I spied attractively packaged cookies that looked like they held promise. While packaging alone (like a book and its cover) can’t always portend good things to come, the cookies were actually visible so […]

Coming Soon: Telluride!

These truly are the dog days of summer – at least when it comes to movies. I defy you to find me something showing at the local cinemas that has either not been there for weeks, or deserves two hours and $10. Good luck. So what is an intrepid movie reviewer to do? Why look […]

The Big Catch in Bristol, NH

I’m in the last few weeks of training for the New Hampshire marathon and last weekend I figured it would be a good idea to visit Bristol, NH to see the course first-hand. As I sat in the passenger seat calculating how fast I’d have to be to finish by nightfall, I developed quite an […]

Hello Café in Thetford, VT

My sister-in-law, who had worked as a camp counselor in the area for years, has talked about a Thetford farm stand with a café just past the farm stand’s doors.

GMAIL Makeover

Google is previewing a vastly improved contacts feature that will eventually become part of Gmail. The new contacts tool is elegantly designed. Instead of a simple alphabetical list, Google’s (GOOGL, Tech30) new contacts tool sorts people according to importance: First, “starred” (favorite) contacts appear, followed by frequently contacted and then “all contacts.” You can easily […]

Your Cat is Now Your Drinking Buddy

You never have to drink alone again, because now you can drink with your cats. At least in Japan you can, because a Japanese company called B&H Lifes has begun selling wine made specifically for cats. This special feline libation is called “Nyan Nyan Nouveau.” As Kotaku reports, “nyan nyan” is the Japanese equivalent of “meow meow.” […]
