An awesome brewery

I love this place. It's a nice place to relax with locals and drink amazing craft beers. My favorites are the Red between the lines and the Runway IPA. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have food venders on the weekend, that are always good.

The show was great, theatre is old

The show was a charity event called Elvis Palooza. It was great. We really enjoyed it. The theater is old and needs updating, but it was fine for the show. It isn't very big so most seats are good. They have limited facilities. Limited snacks are availabl
