Finally got to try a pint of the @sierranevada x @ludlamisland Resilience IPA! If you haven't had a chance to get it yet, whatcha waiting for? NJ friends, for a list of breweries offering it, check out my blog post.
Braving the cold to show Sinead the ropes when it comes to flying my little DJI Spark! Thank you Wawa coffee for keeping me warm.
Friendsmas in Northfield, NJ
If I'm holding a shot in my hand you know it's a special occasion... Friendsmas!! May have had a 2-day hangover (thanks, @captainmorganusa) but the friendship was worth it
Tennessee Avenue Beer Hall in Atlantic City, NJ
Pretty sure the new @tennavebeerhall has more beer options than any other bar in AC combined and I am h e r e for it. They wouldn't let me take my beer glass outside — but did lend me this lovely red Solo cup, which is at least festive
Made Chocolate Bar in Atlantic City, NJ
Alcohol + chocolate = yes please! @made_acchocolate makes their chocolate in house and then tops that by infusing their drinks with it. I got the chocolate mintini that came with the best fresh-made thin mint. My favorite part about this Instagram is making all of my friends wait to sip their drinks so I can take a picture.
Bourre in Atlantic City, NJ
Some people find painting peaceful — I am not one of them. I'm a perfectionist to a fault so paint nights are always a stressful experience… but this tequila drink helped me through it!
Mazza's in Northfield, NJ
Told myself if I woke up early to go to the gym instead of having a lazy Sunday I could reward myself with some good coffee. Everyone needs a little motivation sometimes, especially when it's so cold outside!
Rumspringa Brewery in Bird In Hand, PA
First of all, let me just say that I really appreciate this Two in the Bush IPA both for its taste and clever title. Second of all, let me tell you the names of three surrounding towns: Intercourse, Virginville, and Blue Ball. If anyone knows the origins of these town names PLEASE let a girl know.
Best Western Plus Revere Inn & Suites in Paradise, PA
30 degrees outside, 85 and balmy inside. This little town outside of Lancaster is called Paradise, which I found a slice of c/o Yuengling and a hotel hot tub.
Cracker Barrel in Lancaster, PA
My mom and grandma have raved about Cracker Barrel for basically my whole entire life. It’s only taken me 27 years to finally go to one myself (and will prob be another 27 years before I go back).
The Lil' Country Store & Miniature Horse Farm in Ronks, PA
Visiting Amish country! Made friends with some Lil’ Sebastians and an Alpaca with whom I bonded over frizzy hair struggles, even though he was infinitely more photogenic. Also got some homemade root beer.
Hayday Coffee in Atlantic City, NJ
For this week’s episode of Micki Actually Leaves the House, I hit up the new Hayday Coffee on Tennessee Ave. Excited to see businesses bringing life back into AC (especially when the coffee is bangin’)
