602 – Taco Fest


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode, we:

Ate a lot of food
We attended Taco Fest with our friends Shelley and Adam. The event was made up of local restaurants serving tacos. Later in the week, we actually didn’t eat local, we ate salads (!) at BW3.

Chad spied on birds
Chad put together a bird house with an infrared camera in it. Now, a mama bird moved in and we have eggs!

Ruth started biking
Ruth got a new helmet from Nutcase Helmets and started riding every morning for 20+ minutes.

And then there was music
Ruth went to see the 30th Anniversary tour of The Posies live at Summerfest. Jon and Ken were rockin’ out for this show and were having a blast.

407 – Cheater Glasses


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode, we:

MKE Ice Bars

Hung at MKE Ice Bars
Ruth works for an organization which helped to produce a fun time for people in Milwaukee. There are now three ice bars on the corner of Broadway and St. Paul. The bars were created by Max and Jeanne Zuleta of Art Below Zero.

Ruth with Ken and Jon of The Posies

Saw The Posies in Chicago
Ruth got tix and a VIP meet and greet for The Posies. If you’re not familiar with the band,  here’s a clip of them playing live in Seattle on KEXP a few years ago. We thought we were going to miss the meet and greet but just a few minutes late. The show was outstanding and the City Winery concert venue was cool.

Avocado Bomb at Matty’s

Went back to Matty’s
We returned to Matty’s Pub (after finding it closed the week before) and the food was outstanding. We found so much deliciousness on the menu we will have to return! The only downside was the low lighting made Chad realize he needs cheater glasses. Everything got sharper and brighter in his world when he borrowed Ruth’s cheaters.

Watched Clue
Actor Ryan Reynolds recently announced he wants to do an “update” of the movie, “Clue.” We are skeptical. But, since we both love the movie so much we decided to re-watch it. Th original is such a well-done film by John Landis we’re not sure how Ryan can top it.
