It's easy for me to get into a rut where all I do is work, go to meetings, grab dinner at a restaurant and then spend the rest of the evening sitting at home watching TV or reading. Thus, I've been trying to expand my horizons a bit.
This Saturday I spent the afternoon on a pub crawl with other Twitterers and bloggers in the town where I've lived since 1995. Here's a better recap than I could do (although, for the record, it was Megadeth, not Metallica). I paced myself pretty well and didn't even need to take a nap when I finally got home.
One of the best things to come out of the experience was our stop at the local sausage shop, Werner's Specialty Foods, which I'd never visited before. Because I'm rather gristle-averse, I had a grilled knackwurst and it was wonderful. I'll definitely be back.
Last night my husband and I went to see The Breakfast Club - Live. It's exactly what it sounds like: the '80s movie staged as a play. Originally we were supposed to go with a big group, but people dropped off one by one until it was just the two of us. However, we ran into another couple we know, so that made it even more fun.
After the play, they invited the audience onstage to graffitti the desks and hang out with the cast, but we decided we wanted to get home and watch "Heroes" before bedtime. Baby steps...
