Chocolate Banana Protein Bar

Chocolate Banana Protein Bar:

Hi! I’m Holly from HalfFitChick.com.  I am so excited to be guest blogging today for Ryan and Kindra.  I think these two have the right idea…have fun and see as much of this world as possible!

Unfortunately, my traveling days have slowed down quite a bit.  Which is funny because my husband is a pilot! … Continue Reading →

Great Divide Brewing Co.

Legendary Craft Beer


Just like bigfoot, Great Divide beer is rare and elusive in Wisconsin (the nearest place to get is…Illinois-gasp!). That means, whenever we’re in Denver, we head directly to the brewery to bag a flight of their exceptional beer. Their flagship brew is the Yeti Imperial Stout, which we think is quite possibly the most perfect example of this style of beer.… Continue Reading →

Ore Dock Brewing Company

Good Beer, Ore Dock, Marquette

Craft Beer in Marquette, MI

Every summer, our dear friend (and L&A contributer!) Al invites us to stay at his family’s camp in Michigan’s upper peninsula. It’s a truly magical place, but frankly so much swimming, sauna-ing and relaxing can make you really thirsty for beer. Luckily the U.P.’s craft beer scene has been growing steadily.… Continue Reading →

Belgian Beer

Drinking Belgian Beer

Drinking like a monk in Brussels

You can find Belgian beer all over the world, but for true fanatics and completists, a trip to Brussels is an efficient (and tipsy!) way to sample every beer Belgium has to offer.

Now, what makes a Belgian beer so special?  First, Belgium has a long historical tradition of producing high quality beers.… Continue Reading →

Comet Cafe

Comet Cafe Menu

Slow food on Milwaukee’s East Side


Comet Cafe’s logo is a Rabbit, but don’t let their speedy mascot fool you. They, like their sister cafe Honeypie, serve slow food sourced from local purveyors. And sure, slow food can mean long lines, but the staff makes you feel right at home as you wait for a spot.… Continue Reading →

Gear Review: Camelbak Groove

Camelbak Water bottle

Leakproof, filtered water bottle for traveling

You guys, I have a confession to make. I HATE drinking water. For years, I got most all of my liquid from drinking Diet Coke and High Life (not at the same time). Fast forward a few years and although my tastes were more refined (read Coffee and Craft Beer) I still had a serious H20 deficit.… Continue Reading →

Photo Friday: Manneken Pis

Manneken Pis in Brussels

Brussels’ (unofficial) mascot is a statue of a small urinating boy.

This cheeky, devil-may-care child is a symbol of Belgian independence and brio. Although his origin story is a little murky, he’s been happily peeing in this corner for over 700 years. He owns hundreds of outfits, sent by adoring fans and foreign dignitaries alike, and on occasion he actually pisses beer.… Continue Reading →

Belgian Chocolate

Part Three: Chocolately Goodness

Belgian chocolate is world-renowned, and with good reason. Sweet, rich and creamy, it is made by hand from top-quality ingredients. Many of Brussels top chocolatiers can be found in the area surrounding the Grote Markt. It is probably a good idea to sample the fare at as many as you can before you decide on which store you are going to empty your bank account at.… Continue Reading →
