These late-summer skies have been blowing us away.  We can slowly but surely feel summer bowing out and it’s been putting on quite a show of it.  Soon enough these colorful skies will be upstaged by colorful leaves and our favorite season will be here at last.  It’s been a full, busy and sort of exhausting summer.  I’m ready for the cozy-quiet of shorter days and longer nights, pots of tea and burning candles, family visits and also a little bit of solitude.  What about you?  How was your summer?

Mixing it up with Saturday biscuits instead of the usual bagels. A good decision. Also there’s maple syrup in my coffee which is genius. This place is good! (at Maple Street Biscuit Company)

Stare at the bartender long enough while he’s making a milkshake and he’ll give you some. #lifelessons @urbanstack

date night with the chattery

our awesome pal shawanda and her awesome pal jennifer started the chattery - a non profit that throws together fun and affordable classes around chattanooga - from calligraphy to home brewing to dairy culturing.

tuesday night we grabbed our friends, diego and malia and learned the history of the classic cocktail from repeal and serve’s jamion williams, “a historian and evangelist of cocktails ancient and modern”.  we learned all about old fashions (hint:  when you’re making old fashions, add more bitters.  don’t be scared of the bitters.), the martinez (key ingredient:  the maraschino liqueur) and the manhattan (my favorite part of a manhattan is the boozy cherry at the end).  it was so interesting to learn not only about the ingredients and the proper way to combine them but also the history behind each drink.

we had such a great time and are looking forward to taking more chattery classes soon!
