#PickoftheDay Sale carts at Symposium

This time of year it’s so hard to resist buying books. Symposium has its sale carts out on the street, and sometimes a couple of tables with even more books. Great for finding used paperbacks that are only a couple of dollars each, or some interesting out of print books.

#PickoftheDay The Painkiller at Aurora

Frozen drinks at Aurora have been one of the highlights of summer after-work drinks. My current fave is The Painkiller, and I find it does more to soothe the pain that cause it….except for the occasional brain freeze if you go at it too quickly.
