Bye Bye September Weekend Brewery/Distillery Round Up
Another week has passed......WE MADE IT! If you are like me and you are stuck in your home working your normal job and also facilitating your kids online learning you've earned yourself a Friday cold beverage......or 6. One thing this remote learning process has taught me is that not only am I the class proctor but I'm also the: school nurse, lunch lady, janitor, tech support, guidance counselor, vice principle, study hall monitor and class bell ringer.
Anyway........here's a list of places you can visit to help you forget the week that just past and help you prepare for the week on the horizon. Make the most of your freedom Drinking Springs! ........also buy this hat because it's amazing!
-also also are you not a member of our amazing Facebook Group, Drinking Springs Neighbors? You are missing the fun.
