We hope that you are enjoying your break and recharging your batteries for the final third of the 2012-13 academic year. Rest assured, we here on Briggs 2nd are making the necessary preparations for the academic homestretch.
And we couldn’t be more excited, if not a little edgy.
Sports Illustrated‘s Peter King gives a big thumbs up to downtown Appleton:
What a good coffee town Appleton, Wisc., is. In a two-block stretch of downtown on College Avenue (I once had night-before-the-game dinner with Bears linebacker Ron Rivera in an Italian place on this street), there are local espresso places — the trendy and modern Copper Rock, the homey and filled-with-locals Brewed Awakenings — and if those aren’t good enough for you, there’s a Starbucks on the corner. I can’t imagine there’s a better downtown coffee experience in a medium-sized, middle America city.
No mention of Gerardo’s stash on Briggs 2nd.
HT to our wonderful alumni network.
