Back from Rochester

   The weekend flew by but I managed to get a lot done.  I had to go back to Rochester, where I am from, so that I could get some help from my financial adviser (my step-dad) with my taxes. This is the first year that I am filing my taxes with the business so I wanted to make sure I was doing everything correctly.  Our trips to Rochester are usually a lot of fun, usually involving great drinks, food and lots of laughs.  This weekend was no different as Nicole and I, along with my mom and step-dad, went to the Owl House for dinner.  The Owl House is amazing and I wish Buffalo had something similar.  In Buffalo, we have Merge which is basically what the Owl House would be it did everything wrong.  The food at Merge is bland, boring, and unimaginative. The place just lacks anything that would make it special.  The food and drinks at the Owl House are just awesome.  Although they didn’t have the BBQ braised Seitan that I ate the last time I was there (which was by far my favorite), I had a grilled cheese sandwich that was phenomenal.  It was grilled Daiya cheese with mashed potatoes and asparagus right on the sandwich.  That accompanied by a delicious Black IPA made for a great dinner.  My mother even tried the grilled cheese with the Daiya cheese (which is a vegan cheese) which is big for her because she is hesitant to try vegetarian things.  Nicole had this gorganzola mushroom pizza that was also pretty delicious.  She gets this one drink that they make which I believe is called the Smoke Monster.  Its basically a Bloody Mary with liquid smoke. It is out of this world.
     Good food, family, and two days in a row of Sabres victories clinching a playoff spot makes for a great weekend but its time to get back to work!  Orders have been constant and my new screen is ready to form into Charles Bronson!  I will have pictures when it is completed.

Izzy gets sad over everything, even Sabres victories.

Awesome weather!

   The weather here has been terrible for a while now.  Rainy, gloomy days mixed with cold flurries occasionally.  It has not been pleasant here at all.  Yesterday the weather was amazing. The sun was shining bright and people were out and about enjoying a break from the gloom.  Nicole, Ric, and I decided to go for a stroll through the neighborhood.  We live near the Elmwood Village which is filled with all kinds of little shops and a wide variety of people.  Ric has put on some winter weight so its good to get his chubby fanny into gear.  I decided to sport the Vulcan sweatshirt from our new line of hoodies.  We took a few pictures of the neighborhood along the way.
