Steel of the Week: Vegan Milkshake


Our Steel this week may leave you a little hungry... Vegan milkshakes from the¬†Quiet Storm. Vegans and non-vegans alike are sure to be satisfied from one of these shakes. Forget weekly vegan specials: Quiet Storm has twelve different varieties offered every day. The flavors we tried were the espresso shake, sticky bun, banana bread, and ginger lemon. As the menu suggests, they did take a little while to prepare, but were definitely worth the wait. Located in Bloomfield since 2001, this … [Read more...]

Pinball Perfection

Tucked away in a two-floor complex in West View, my first reaction to Pinball Perfection was "woah". Then, "how do I start playing?"

I've read plenty about the craft beer they produce and how great it is, and visiting the brewery and the pub has been on my Summer to-do list for some time. However, I was kind of thrown by the location and nature of it, in a good way. The brewery and pub are tucked away on the hillside and kind of difficult to see from the road. Walking up to the warehouse, all of the garage doors were … [Read more...]
