A Tale of Two Restaurants

With apologies to Mr. Dickens… “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was …

I am feeling a bit faint…

So back in December my wife and I took a trip to Spain for our 20th anniversary and she fainted dead away about two-thirds of the way over the Atlantic. I, of course, am made of sterner stuff.

Barcelona Part 1

Momentous occasions call for big celebrations, so when my twentieth wedding anniversary loomed I knew I had to do a little better than a pair of earrings.

Southside Grill- A Restaurant Report

Norm was right. We all want a place where everybody knows our name. Somewhere where you can say, “Bring me the usual” and they don’t stare at you like you have two heads. I have finally found that place. Bill Darsinos has the restaurant biz in his blood, along with a little bit of Ouzo. …

Sardinia Enoteca- A Restaurant Report

OK, I will be honest. I booked a brunch at the italian restaurant Sardinia Enoteca with my beautiful and very patient wife because it was a 1000 point reservation on OpenTable.

London Day Two

London is nothing if not consistent when it comes to the weather. Cold, gray and damp. Pick any two. Like Lord Nelson, we had no choice but to forge on. Hopping on to the westbound Circle line led us to the Ladbroke Grove stop for the Portabello Road Market. The market is the biggest flea …

Act Globally, Think Locally

I love it when a company thinks out of the box…I mean, in the box…or rather with a box! WaterField Designs is one of those companies that makes spectacular products in the US with great customer service and just a WEE bit of attitude!
