In honor of March, we are cooking with Guinness! There are not a lot of good cookbooks about this topic so the challenge is to find an online or family recipe which uses Guinness Beer as an ingredient. Then we’ll share food and stories about where we found our recipes.
If you would prefer not to cook with beer, feel free to bring any robust dish to this meeting to share.

Coloring Books are not just for kids anymore! Join us for a relaxing hour of just coloring (and chatting, if you’d like). Touted as a way to help adults “de-stress and self-express”, the BFL is happy to bring this form of “mindful or mindless” activity to its patrons ??
We’ll supply the adult coloring pages and coloring pencils or markers. Feel free to bring your own supplies if you’d like. All adults welcome!
