Natural Grocers Opens in Rochester

Rochester. Crochester. Yeah, I said Crotchester. It’s a word. Ask the locals. Sometimes we get used to well, what we’re used to and we forget how cool our surroundings are.

Rochester’s Best Chocolate

Two of my favorite things… chocolate and coffee.  For me, either one is consumed on a daily basis regardless of what time of day it is.  I can’t even remember the last time I went without either.
