A brand new Chipotle just opened and today they were giving away free burritos to everyone who came through the door. Allison, Eva and I went with our friends Michelle and her two little ones Nate and Audrey. I am very, very impressed by the precision hard work the Chipotle team did tonight. The line moved really quickly and people were in great spirits. I thought it would be tedious but it wasn’t. The only thing I don’t like about Chipotle and this is the protective parent in me, is the rivets in the walls stick out. Eva was playing and horsing around with Nate, he’s 4 and she adores him. She does everything he does and managed somehow to slide down the wall right where the rivets were. Luckily it didn’t break the skin but she does have a scratch. That is my only complaint. The food was very tasty.
After dinner we went over to ColdStone Creamery. Before we went in though we saw an Omaha Steak store. I had never been in the store before and I wanted to look around, well $108.00 later we walked out with two large bags of various frozen meats. I can’t wait to grill up some of the Franks on the grill this weekend and the burgers too. Dad, we have dinner for tomorrow night at least!
Coldstone was the usual deliciousness. I got sweet cream and chocolate with white choclate chips and Oreo. Allison got Founder’s Favorite. We sat by the pond and the three of us enjoyed the ice creams.
I am going to have a major annoucement tomorrow regarding IZEAFest, even bigger than the Kickoff Party at Busch Gardens on October 1st. Check out details on the post below!
One show that Allison and I totally love is Leverage on TNT. We’re watching the show and live tweeting about it at the same time. It makes the show even more fun to watch. When you want to follow something special on twitter you really must be using Tweetdeck. It is perfect for monitoring things that you are interested in and screening the stuff you aren’t. Also if you are interested in looking for tweeters in your area then Twitter Local and anther Adobe Air product is a good one to use. Really enjoying using these tools.
So, on to the show. It has been a while since I’ve reviewed a TV show so I’m rusty. I liked how many other people on twitter were enjoying the show. I didn’t find any tweets that were negative. The show is a fun one. There is a lot of great nuance to it too. Characters that you can immediately feel for and identify with the characters. When we left the team they split up and went their separate ways. This season starts and they are back, eventually.
I love how this show sets up the con and then reveals how they did everything in the episode. It is so clever and fun. Leverage is one of those shows that I have to watch live and I will certainly be live tweeting as often as possible. Maybe TNT wants a live blogger for this show like SavvyAuntie does for Saving Grace.
I received a very special package today. So did Ted Murphy. (I bought a pack for me and one for the IZEA Crew w my own money.) But more about that on Friday! Fry Sauce Friday!
Also if you live near Mansfield, MA there is a new Chipotle opening and they are giving away free soda and burritos tomorrow. We’ll be going for dinner.
