One-Piece/Zero Problems

Beaches, lakes and pools, oh my! With the arrival of summer, we’re all ready to shake off those post spring semester woes and dive straight into a fabulous (and hot) summer. Obviously you must do so in style so I thought I’d help you out. The two-piece has been done year, after year, after year.

They have an app where you can schedule a pizza delivery, meaning while you’re in uptown you can have a pizza waiting at your front door for when you get home.

Shhh… It’s A Secret!

If you are from California… then you already know the drill. Everyone else, listen up… Recently, I found myself at a dinner table surrounded by individuals who had NO idea about In-N-Out burger’s secret menu… I was truly surprised.
