SanTan Brewing Company


This past St. Patrick's Day, Sharon and I celebrated in Chandler.  We started by having a brew at Murphy's Law Irish Pub & Ale House.  Even though we both don't like dark beer, we felt the need to order a Guinness anyway.  I ended up drinking half and opting for a Bud Light.  We enjoyed the band and moved to the music.  After an hour, we got hungry and ended up at the SanTan Brewing Company for dinner.  After waiting for 35 minutes, we were seated.  The place was packed with wall to wall adults and kids celebrating the holiday.  We did want corned beef and cabbage, but because of the many orders, we would have had to wait another half an hour to eat.  We opted for a sandwich with Irish beef stew.  The meal was delicious.  We finished the dinner with a white chocolate chip brownie with vanilla ice cream on top.  We shared the brownie and glad we did.  We were full and happy before calling it a night and heading home.

Abandoned: The Doll Shop

Apparently this abandoned building that Sharon and I thought was someone's house used to be a doll shop.  I was looking for abandoned places around Arizona that I would like to check out, and this place showed up on Google images.  Although I did not find any information on the place, I still found it interesting.  I still think I was probably someone's house too.

A Ducks Life

Just floating in the water and diving for fish for a meal or perhaps bread crumbs from a human is the life of these ducks on Canyon Lake, AZ.

Labyrinth

This Labyrinth can be found on the grounds of the Superstition Mountains Museum. 
"In Greek mythology, the Labyrinth was an elaborate structure designed and built by the legendary artificer Daedalus for King Minos of Crete at Knossos. Its function was to hold the Minotaur eventually killed by the hero Theseus. Daedalus had so cunningly made the Labyrinth that he could barely escape it after he built it.  In colloquial English, labyrinth is generally synonymous with maze, but many contemporary scholars observe a distinction between the two: maze refers to a complex branching puzzle with choices of path and direction; while a single-path labyrinth has only a single path to the center. A labyrinth in this sense has an unambiguous route to the center and back and is not difficult to navigate."  (from Wikipedia)
