Holidays + Celebrations

Holiday beer
Skip the milk and cookies this holiday and leave out something that Santa really wants: an ice-cold holiday themed beer. (Don't worry, Santa is very responsible and always has an elf DD. Plus, the reindeer do all the "real" driving anyway.) Check out our local holiday beer...

Poinsettia
House plants bring touches of life to our homes all year long, and nothing represents December cheer like the classic poinsettia.

Or maybe you’ve opted for takeout from your favorite neighborhood eatery instead of traditional...

"June warmed the air, sun filled the sky and I couldn’t resist that cherry-red '65 Mustang convertible🏎️ It was bliss—until it wasn’t. By October, oil leaked everywhere, and the engine coughed like my uncle Irv. I sold the lemon and learned two valuable lessons: (1) always look under the hood, and (2) beware of summer—it can inspire daring moves." –@mrbradmee⁠⁠
