Here's hoping you all had a fun, safe summer weekend. The highlights of our weekend included a Gnome named Norm derailing our local Amazing Race endeavor, one of the most amazing brunches ever at A Taste of Belgium, the re-realization I'm not good at 80's video games at the 16-Bit-Bar, loving practically every single thing inside Elm & Iron, and dipping my feet in a wading pool in the sunshine with my wife and kids listening to some good live cajun music.
Another realization I had this morning while perusing stories for the Daily Grind is the fact I may have to add Pokemon Go to the list of the other two things we try to avoid talking about on Ventipop: The Orange Menace and that little show on HBO that has the dragons. Everywhere I went on the web this weekend and this morning had a headline talking about Pokemon Go. I get that it's a big deal...but should it be THAT big a deal?! There are a lot of other awesome things in the world that don't involve hunting cartoons with your phone. Here are a few of them:
