How do you stay busy outside the hospital? All things games - board games, video games, puzzles, and playing chess. Being new to the East Coast, my wife and I have spent many weekends already finding new restaurants, breweries, beaches, and trivia spots! And of course, exploring the area our dog, Chief.
