There is something civilized about train travel. The smoothness,the mild rocking of the cars, the deceptive speed. Civilized. Very civilized. Which was in marked contrast to the fire drill that I led us on getting to St. Pancras station (home of platform 9 3/4) to get on that sedate, yet speedy transport. It should have …

The first day across the pond is always hard. An overnight flight and hopping right into the touristing makes for a bit of jet-lagged bleariness as you stare slack-jawed at things you have only seen in pictures before. My best advice for dealing with jet lag? Set your watch to the time at your destination …

Et Tu, Tu Go?

I am not much of a rolling luggage guy, but I do appreciate a clever idea. Have you ever been hurrying through the airport having just bought a Venti, pumpkin spice, extra shot, skinny, Mocha Latte with light foam only to dump most of it on the floor in the do-si-do to get your self …

The Southern- A Restaurant Report

The Southern is an extension of the restaurant and catering company of Tom Morales. With brands like Loveless Cafe and Saffire and his own TomKats catering company it’s not like he has to prove anything to anyone. To me though, the Southern looks to be his way of making a statement. It is an intriguing …

Serpentine- A Restaurant Report

I had a couple of things to do in the Dogpatch neighborhood of SF and somebody recommended I try out Serpentine at the corner of 22nd and 3rd. I hopped on the web and made a 12:30 reservation. Yes, I realize that making a lunch reservation makes me hopelessly pretentious but I am a motivated …

Olives in Nassau- A Restaurant Report

I have just survived my first cruise experience. A four-day Carnival Funship trip from Jacksonville to the Bahamas and back. Cruising was not quite what I expected. The food and entertainment were better than I thought they would be. The crowds and summer camp type schedule were actually worse than I thought they would be…but …

Dear Santa

Dear Santa, I know that you are awfully busy this year, so I thought I would try to make it a bit easier on you by sending you a note over the ether with some web links to some stuff that I want so you could just…well, you know…mail order them on Black Friday and …

Thanksgiving Blend

I have a love/hate relationship with Starbucks. I love the mobile office aspect, the free wi-fi and the atmosphere. The coffee you say? Meh. I am a Peet’s Bean fan and I think there was a noticeable decline in the quality when Peet left off doing the roasting of the beans for them. Having said …
