National Hamburger Month
"One of the best, if not best restaurants in Morgantown. The burgers are priced very well, and great quality. Friendly, helpful staff and the specials each week are always something I go out of my way to try. The wait is a little long, but certainly worth it. This is somewhere I would take friends or family I haven't seen in a long time."
Tailpipes Burgers is about a 12 minute drive from The Lofts. Happy National Hamburger Month!
National Bike Month
Have you checked out Pathfinder of WV? It’s a great local outdoor shop that we suggest you check out for National Bike Month. They have all kinds of equipment and gear to get you ready for your next adventure. Purchase or rent a bike if you don’t already have one and get outside to enjoy some fresh air this month. Take a ride on a local bike path and enjoy! Pathfinder of WV is about a 13 minute drive from The Lofts. Happy National Bike Month!

The Wisdom of Wolves: Lessons from the Sawtooth Pack by Jim & Jamie Dutcher
“For six years Jim and Jamie Dutcher lived intimately with a pack of wolves, gaining their trust as no one has before. In this book the Dutchers reflect on the virtues they observed in wolf society and behavior. Each chapter exemplifies a principle, such as kindness, teamwork, playfulness, respect, curiosity, and compassion. Their heartfelt stories combine into a thought-provoking meditation on the values shared between the human and the animal world. Occasional photographs bring the wolves and their behaviors into absorbing focus.”
Raw: My Journey Into the Wu-Tang by Lamont U-God Hawkins
“U-God’s unforgettable first-person account of his journey, from the streets of Brooklyn to some of the biggest stages around the world, is not only thoroughly affecting, unfiltered, and explosive but also captures, in vivid detail, the making of one of the greatest acts in American music history.”
