RUN

The Donna Marathon Weekend got off to a great start.  We decided to experience as much of the weekend as possible by completing the Booby Trap Challenge, which is the 10K, 5K, and Half Marathon during the weekend.  And who are we kidding, we love the bling!  This episode features the 10K and the 5K.  Both races give runners a great way to see downtown Jacksonville and the eclectic scenery there.

EAT

We were starving when we finsihed our last race, and we had heard great things about The Maple Street Biscuit Company. We decided to try their waffle, complete with bacon and asiago cheese in the batter, salted butter, and warm made-from-scratch maple syrup.  Don't worry, we tried biscuits and their biscuit sandwiches that we will feature in upcoming quick bites, too.

DRINK

Main & Six is one of the newest breweries in the Jacksonville area, and it pays tribute to the community.  Co-Founder Dennis Espinosa talks about how he got started and takes us through a flight of his tasty beers.  Our favorite, of course, was the Hazelnut Coffee Stout, which was a collaboration with Social Grounds Coffee Company.  Although Main & Six has only been open for three months, the beer is on point and it is a spot you need to visit when in Jacksonville.

THAT’S A WRAP!
