Blissfully little driving today, blissfully much beer.
It was a two Saucer Day. We met D#1 and a coworker, and three of the husband’s Dallas-based coworkers at the Addison Flying Saucer for (at least) one beer. We checked into the Piersol Palace for a TWO NIGHT STAY and then went to the Ft Worth Saucer for (at least) one beer and trivia. We helped our hosts win a round of the trivia and a $20 gift certificate to use on their next visit to the Saucer. We also sampled from one of our favorite micro breweries, Over-Engineered Beer, located conveniently in the Piersol Palace kitchen.
