Breweries around Hampton Roads!

If you care most about seeing cool breweries with good beer I'd be sure to hit The Veil, O'Connor, Wasserhund, Back Bay's Farmhouse, and Big Ugly. I probably wouldn't do them all in a day because they're so spread out but they're my favorites. I'd recommend hitting all of norfolk and an area of Va Beach for a long day of brewery hopping, then pottentially snagging the outliers another day. most rotate through food trucks, but you'll have to call or check their calendar to be sure; a few have food on-site.

Norfolk Scene

If you're focused on Norfolk I'd hit Benchtop, Smartmouth, Elation, ( food at hanks? ), The Veil ( food at the veil? ), O'Connor ( normally food trucks? ), Rip Rap, Maker's w/ a cigar.

All pretty close to each other we've got...

Docker CLI Refresher for when it's been awhile

Running things

Docker Compose!

docker-compose is super helpful to start docker stuff. Create a docker file, I've been having the best luck with version 3.1, and run docker-compose up. It's super nice.

docker-compose up -d runs docker-compose in detatched mode.

Notes on Fixing key-repeat for vscode on Mac

Particularly useful if you use vim in vscode. This helps the directional keys work while holding them down, instead of just moving 1 place.
