It's that time of year...if you like meat and good beer, hit the Hofbrau. Preferably with friends to 1) enjoy the food and beverages and 2) to walk you to the car as it is not located in the best part of town.
If you are not familiar with the place, Peoria's Hofbrau is located off of Adams right across from Komatsu, near the Ice Cream Shack. It has delicious German food and wonderful beers and being this time of year, the Oktoberfests are in. I should mention they do have some seafoods items on the menu as well. Service wise - be ready for some sassy waitresses but you can always eat at the bar. The place is tiny so be ready for a wait.
Warning: beers come in small and large sizes...larges will catch up with you. Enjoy.

I have friends who are trying to get pregnant or pregnant & while lounging around their homes, I browsed a book called "Skinny Bitch Bun in the Oven." The two gals have written a few books with the first being Skinny Bitch - stop eating crap and start looking fabulous. They have a good website - go to it and click on the blue spot that says products we love. It lists out some great organic ice cream, energy bars, breads, etc. Now I will just have to scour Ptown for them.

Em & Lo, regular contributors in Glamour, are the self-proclaimed Emily Posts of the modern bedroom. Check out their blog, Daily Bedpost. They've co-authored five books & I'd suggest checking out "Sex - How to Do Everything" which you can find at Barnes & Noble. I recently gave it as a bachelorette gift and the crowd went wild, even grandma! The website is fun and written in a modern fun language. You'll be entertained.
For those of us who watch Lipstick Jungle, we were all hoping Kirby, Nico's boy toy from her affair, would be back this season. Great news, he is and starts the season off without his shirt! What a great season opener. I won't give away the plot line, but tune in...looks like Kirby will be around all season and hopefully sans clothes! By the way, you can watch the episodes on nbc.com
