flo and sarah got here friday afternoon, so we headed out to one of me and keith's favorite places, cpw's, for a drink and some appetizers. our favorite thing about this place is that they have a rotating monthly menu. unfortunate for us, this month is seafood based [we are not big seafood eaters]. but typically we love it!
afterward we headed to duck rabbit brewery [with flo, sarah, matt, and NJ]. this brewery is located about 20 minutes west of greenville in farmville, nc. a very small town. we like their beers and had never been to the brewery, so we thought we'd check it out. well, we were in for a treat.

on saturday we headed to another small eastern NC town, kinston. we went to check out mother earth brewing. keith and flo had gone there a couple of weeks ago, so we knew it was worth another visit. it is such a cool place.

we will definitely be back. perhaps on the 24th when they release their peach beer [yum!].
after having some midday beers, we were hungry! there are a few new local restaurants in kinston, with one of them being the boiler room [same owners as chef and the farmer]. it is a brand new restaurant that is a burger, beer, and oyster bar. it was fantastic! we all shared the southern poutine appetizer. traditional, canadian poutine is fries, cheese curds and gravy [the best thing you're not eating]. so, the southern poutine was fries, mozz curds, brazed pork belly and gravy. holy shit, it was amazing. we all got different variety of burgers. all delicious. sarah was the only to get oysters. she got fried oysters and they were so good.

we ended the weekend by hanging out at our place. our sunday was very lazy. but hey, sometimes sundays just need to be lazy.
it was wonderful to catch up with and hang out with old friends. we always seem to pick up where ever we left off. that is the great thing about friends. see [most of] you guys next weekend!!
and i hope the rest of you had as great of a weekend as we did! :)
