Book & Brew
We are excited about our new book club, Book & Brew. The idea is to meet once per month or so, in a different watering hole/coffee shop in town, and discuss fabulous books. So, come on out, meet some new people, see what everyoneâ€™s reading, and letâ€™s put our heads together (and raise a glass or two!).
