How To: Go Grocery Shopping Without Seeming like a...
Another part of growing up and existing in the “real world” is purchasing food stuffs for oneself. Navigating a grocery store is a complex ordeal, and not one to be taken lightly. However, you can alleviate the glare of fluorescent lighting, the chill of the freezer aisle, and the temptation of the checkout snacks by showing a bit of humanity with Grocery Store Etiquette.

Beerfest is an event where lots of different breweries (local, national, and international) come together for a sampling of beers. You purchase tickets and wander through booth after booth of spirits. We started our night at Rockbottom Brewery on Fountain Square and found ourselves watching live music and sampling...
