Et Tu, Tu Go?

Screen Shot 2013-02-09 at 7.36.06 PM

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 Planning Is Half the Fun

I don’t know about you, but I have one major family vacation from my youth that is indelibly marked in my memory. It was a trip to Disneyland and San Diego and it was awesome. I met the mouse, rode Space Mountain when it was brand new and learned to sail in the San Diego …

Table Text

I snuck away to the beach for the Labor Day weekend. Panama City had ducked most of Isaac’s wrath but we needed to see that for ourselves. A couple of days on the beach ( and the beginning of college football!) always do a lot to help my attitude. I was definitely in dire need …

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 …

Mack and Kate’s- A Restaurant Report

20120714-234353.jpg

Mack and Kate’s is tucked on the corner of a multi-use area just past the intersection of Moore’s Lane and Franklin Road. Condos are cheek to jowl with restaurants and retail and it is all wrapped up with a bow. Of course that does mean that there is a lot going on and not quite …

G Foley’s- A Restaurant Report

20120704-001252.jpg

Ahhh, vacation! I have spent the last couple of days working to ramp my speed down to the pace of the beach. You know, wake up without an alarm, get out of bed when you want to. Stumble down to the beach, eat when you are hungry and pay little or no attention to the …

Firefly Grille- A Restaurant Report

20120628-190511.jpg

With a tag line like “Green Hills’ Friendliest and Funkiest Little Neighborhood Joint” I suppose that I should have had my expectations well tempered for what was to come. A “joint” in this sense almost always means that the food outpaces the ambience. I was not quite prepared for the inside of Firefly to look …

Bon Femme Restaurant Report

20120602-112930.jpg

Apologies for the blurry outside photos but the iPhone is still not the best choice for night pictures! I did want to give you a vibe of the area. Who knew that Valparaiso, Indiana (population 31K) had a bohemian, little downtown area? It comes complete with European style spas, bistros, clothing boutiques, jewelry shops and …

Rickshaw City Tote Deal

It is that time of month again! The day that the owner of Rickshaw, Mark Dwight, is out of the office for charity…or another business pursuit…or just because he needs a day off. You know what that means! ONE DAY DEAL! Rickshaw is doing a 50% off deal on their new City Tote for today …

Marzano’s Restaurant Report

A recent trip had me in the Chicago exurbs in a township with the unfortunate name of McHenry. I found myself throwing darts at restaurant names and ended up at Marzino’s for my evening repast. Marzano’s is justifiably proud of their Italian brick oven and their certified piazzolo. The oven is 1000 degrees of crust …
