    A local restaurant people would be surprised to know you’ve never tried?

    What’d you eat for breakfast today?

    “Quills coffee, a blueberry muffin Lärabar and a banana.”

    What did you eat for dinner last night?

    “Zucchini noodle pad thai and our Gonzofruit kombucha (grapefruit/hibiscus/orange peel).”

    What’s in your freezer right now?

    “Louisville Cream pineapple jerk ice cream, ahi tuna, Trader Joe’s pot stickers, Trader Joe’s hash browns, Trader Joe’s chicken.”

    If you were a vegetable, what would you be?

    “Sounds like a terrible existence. If I have to choose: Carolina Reaper hot chili pepper. Very small chance of actually being eaten.”

    If you were a fruit, what would you be?

    “Maybe a kumquat? No one actually eats those, right? It’s more of a fun word than a fruit.”

    Last drink you had?

    “Moxie at Mile Wide Beer Co.”

    First drink you ever had?

    “Busch Light I snuck from my stepdad. Drank it on my buddy’s roof and pretended to be fine with how it tasted, but I remember thinking: This must be what urine tastes like.”

    Best-bang-for-your-buck bar?

    “Drinkswell. $4 pints!”

    What makes a good drinking buddy?

    “Likes to talk about space, the nature of consciousness, drum machines and/or conspiracy theories.”
