What I like Wednesday: Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art

A piece by Vance Kirkland I was lucky enough to visit the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art for the first time last weekend and definitely recommend. It's worth at least one visit, if not more. I knew very little about this museum going in, except that it featured furniture. This is the museum…

Originally one of Shari's favorite places for a burger, the fact that they no longer offer her preferred burger nor their tasty brussel sprouts, I think she may be rethinking where she wants to go next time. I'm guessing Bull and Bush…
