Exploration is really the essence of the human spirit.
Frank Borman

One of my favorite parts about living in a new-to-me city is having the chance to explore new events and try out new things. Even though I've been here for about a year and a half, there is still so much I haven't done!

Yesterday even, Nick was dragged joined me for a trip to the Maplewood Farmers Market which is held through the summer on Wednesdays from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Schafly Bottleworks parking lot. I've always heard it was a good one and while I loved the atmosphere (lots of people, dogs and live music from the patio) I was disappointed in the offerings. A few too many radish shoots and beets for my liking. They did have a few vendors with great meat selections but we didn't really need anything. Oh well, I got a great rosemary baguette from Black Bear Bakery.

After we went (for the second time this week!) to The Village Bar for seriously the best hamburgers and handmade onion rings I've had in a while. Cheap and so delicious.

Overall a fun, Wednesday night exploration (but we came home to a Beagle that really had to go tink!).

Villlage Bar - hands down fantastic. So much that we started a monthly happy hour around it called Booze & Wigs. It's a blast!
