well, the wife and I have been slacking on this so far this month. we have only made it to something like 10 stops.
last Sunday after we took a ride (in the cage, it was raining when we left) out to a state park near Wellington, Ohio. we stopped by a bar called "Little Brown Jug" in Elyria, Ohio.
this was an interesting stop. the place was house that was converted into a bar. it was kind of strange. as we drove by the first time we were like "what?! that's it?! that's the place?!". lol then we turned around and were like "where the heck are we supposed to park?". as we got closer, we saw a sign that said "Parking" with an arrow pointing down what would have been the drive way of the home. we pull in and drive to the backyard, which is now a parking lot. the house looks pretty run down. we get out of the car and pause for a moment, gazing uneasily at the back of the old decrepit looking home. I think to myself "I bet she is thinking the same thing I'm thinking....forget this place and let's get the hell out of here!" then we walk up the steps and open the backdoor and meander inside.
once inside, it was just like many other bars we have been in. we belly up to the bar and order a couple of beers.........and that's when the fun started!
I kind of wish we would have gotten there a little earlier. because we were having a BLAST! but it was Sunday and we both had to work on Monday. besides, we had a long drive home from there too!
oh boy, it just goes to show you, life is like a box of chocolates, you really do never know what you're going to get. lol
this is one of the reasons we love this contest so much. it takes you to these little out of the way places. places that you would never go to for any other reason. but, sometimes, once you're there, you are sure glad you made the trip!
