On Our Second Date of Christmas…

in 12 Dates of Christmas, J&L Celebrate the Holidays

…we spent the day visiting some local shops!

First we headed to The Church Bazaar in Verona, where we made our yearly Department 56 – Christmas in the City village purchase! After much deliberation (no seriously, we were there for like ever), this year we went with “The Brew House”.


It took some digging to find it in their HUGE collection, but when we saw it we knew it was the one! Justin has been really into craft beer lately, and we have visited a couple different breweries, so we thought it was a good representation of our year. I did tell him though, that we are done buying bars, since we also have an Irish Pub. I’ll be sure to show pictures once we get it set up!

After that, we headed over to Lawrenceville for their annual Joy of Cookies, Cookie Tour. We stopped at Franktuary for lunch, which was delicious, and then walked through a bunch of the shops along Butler Street. We didn’t actually eat any cookies since we were full on hot dogs, but we did find a new favorite place, Atlas Bottle Works. It’s basically a craft beer shop, attached to a movie theater! If that’s not a genius idea, I don’t know what is. Justin bought himself a 6-pack, and we picked up the movie schedule so we can plan a night out. Who knows, maybe it’ll be one of our Dates of Christmas!

Overall, it was a nice little Saturday on the town. Date #3 will take place tomorrow, and it’s one of my very favorites!
