If there’s no brewery near you, throw your own tasting party by buying some of those weird new beers whose taste you’ve been wondering about, and making homemade pretzels (simple recipes can be found with just a bit of research).

  Big Balls. Little Balls.  Have yourself a middle-American afternoon dressed in garb appropriate for a miniature golf game, or head to a putting green and whork out your whacks there. If you hate chasing those little white balls, head to the bowling alley (you do have your own shoes and bowling ball, yes?) for a cutthroat bowling tournament for two.” Clark and I spent all day Friday...

This trumps our cheap date challenge for this week, however, we will pick back up again in 2011. I promised Clark I would give him my undivided attention while we are away. That means no crafting, blogging, or Etsy...
