This week was pretty good, nothing too crazy. We go in on a Thursday night because [Steve] wasn’t working on Fridays lately. The store is pretty empty and they’re watching Thursday night football on a TV above the counter area. The Broncos are playing the Chiefs.

So another great week of progress with week six. Not to mention the official request was given, but I’ll get to that in a bit. Friday comes around again and Trevor and myself are excited to follow through with our usual Whiskey Friday tradition. We meet at the liquor store hoping to find a good “Back […]

By July 10th, we were still pumped up about the week before. We achieved “Back Room” status and even got the “lean-in” inside information. We were stoked to watch more progress unfold before our eyes. Just like the week before, we actually called ahead to see if [Steve] was working at the liquor store that day. […]
