Quote of the Week. 

“Our minds are generally lazy and like to get rid of problems as quickly as possible, so they surround first ideas with a lot of positive chemicals to make us “fall in love” with them. Do not fall in love with your first idea.” – Bill Burnett. 

See you tonight at our Bunker Brews
