The DFH brewpub in Delaware is really awesome. They usually have some of their more interesting beers on draft and the food is actually really good. Last time I went I had this Thai chili fried calamari and one of their pizzas which had this really earthy dough, it was great, it was almost like "eating dirt...but in a really good way".
They also sell growlers (maybe not useful when you're traveling around) and their distilled spirits. The Jin (gin) and the brown honey rum (not spiced rum) are both really good.
Yeah, we always spend some time there. Over the years the food has been really uneven. Sometimes it's been good, some years it's been borderline bad. It's bizarre. The beer is always great, though.
I guess when you're new to it, you're scared everything is just going to explode if you do even the slightest provocation. But that's just completely untrue, but you THINK it's not because you've spent your entire life telling yourself that building a PC is really hard and delicate and complicated and now you have a plastic bag on your hand rubbing some goop around you stupid piece of shit!
The only thing that scared me on my first build back in the day was the torque I needed to get the heatsink on.
