It was Saturday and we've shopped around the internet and online but hadn't gone shopping together yet, so (After Crystal opened her TOK Christmas with her gang of online knitting nutsos) we took off for Salida. Yes, it's in Colorado. :D Takes us about an hour and a quarter to get there, nice mountain town, good shopping lots of local art and such. Great place to go rafting in the summers.
But I digress......
We wandered around town a bit, Crys* got some "goodies" to savor later on and we picked up stocking stuffers and such. Then it was time for dinner and we went to Amica's. It's a pizza micro brew in downtown. Crys* had the Strong Scotch Ale and I had a Raspberry Porter. I always like to try new things if they sound odd. It was odd, good too. We each had a lovely veggie calzone and enjoyed our beers while listening to Texan's munch nearby and discuss their skiing holidays. :D Texans are very cute sometimes, when we don't want to kill them. Dessert, we splurged a bit, was tiramasu for me and chocolate cannoli for her. Both delish.
You really should hand with us. It's always fun.
