2014 Road Trip – Tröegs and Devons

Tröegs beer flight

One of the main reasons we chose to go this route was a suggestion by another friend (also named Dan) who heard Tröegs Brewing Company had some killer microbrews and he was spot on.  Took the brewery tour, enjoyed fresh beer and filled up some growlers to bring back home.  They had a good food program but … Read more 2014 Road Trip – Tröegs and Devons

2014 Road Trip – Mütter Museum

Achondroplastic Dwarf display at The Mütter Museum

Dan had the idea to stop at the Mütter Museum which Wikipedia aptly describes as “a collection of medical oddities, anatomical and pathological specimens, wax models, and antique medical equipment”.  Some very strange stuff here but like nothing you will see anywhere else.

An outdoor view of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

My company closed down in March and I had some time off before starting a new position so I decided to take a 4 day whirlwind road trip with my friend Dan.  Our first stop was in Cleveland to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  We spent hours here and didn’t even have … Read more 2014 Road Trip – Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
