The name is an ode to a chain of five and & dime variety stores, one of which used to occupy this corner in Hampden. Now it's known for brunches and lingering happy hours. Their soft pretzels with beer cheese are an absolute must try.
I’m having one of those weeks where all I want to do is churn out words, which is nice. These weeks are becoming rarer; I write copy, articles and content all day, every day for my job, so sometimes coming home and writing into the night and over the weekend can be a challenge if I’m not in the mood. But I’ll keep on trying, because it’s all I know, and I can’t imagine not.
