I arrived at Abby and Amanda's on Friday afternoon, in time to watch them prepare for a party, later that night. The party was fun, and finished up with a rousing series of games of Catch Phrase, followed by falling heavily to sleep, soon after. I woke up to the sound of bacon cooking, the next morning, and enjoyed some delicious breakfast, courtesy Abby. I then set to converting the rest of the picture pages to the new format, while Amanda slumbered away the afternoon.
The evening arrived, and we left for St. Paul, where we stopped at the Green Mill for some pizza and tasty in-house beer, before going over to the College Club for 2005's iteration of Winterfest, a beer festival showcasing winter beers from the state of Minnesota. The highlight, in my opinion, was when Town Hall Brewery announced they were going to be pouring the remainder of a keg of a 2-year old Grand Cru. It was delicious.
We left, half drunk and very tired, to get some chicken nachos at a neighborhood bar, before braving the snowy roads back to Amanda's place, where once again, we fell heavily asleep. I left on Sunday morning, and made it home from snow-falling, sub-freezing Minnesota, to sunny, 55-degrees Missouri, in about six hours. It was a great trip. Expect pictures soon.
