Review of Best Tour’s Boston Cupcake & Desserts Tour

cupcake 10

Recently we ventured into Boston to participate in a cupcake and dessert tour of the Newbury Street area. There was a Living Social special available, and the cost of $80 for four people seemed very reasonable. We were scheduled to visit five different dessert shops. Finding the tour is easy, as it meets at the

A Great Jazz Weekend in Old Lyme, CT

Bill Charlap Trio

We were looking for something to do that was 1: new for us, 2: lots of fun and 3: relaxing at the same time. That’s not a very easy list of things to satisfy at the same time. It would also help if it was not too far from home and didn’t cost an arm

Dining Review – The Palm Restaurant Orlando

When we are staying at the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando one of the added benefits is having a Palm Restaurant right on site. This is one of those upscale chains that you can count on for a good meal, an excellent service experience and an excellent wine list. We always go when we have

Question: How do you know you did at least some things right when your children were growing up?

Answer: They still ask as adults to go to Disney World with you on vacation.

Entrance to Universal Studios

This is a very good thing, and to reinforce it we flew down to Orlando again this

Review of Taste Carolina Restaurant Tour and Restaurants: Durham, North Carolina

durham 13

Having a day or two to ourselves recently in the Raleigh – Durham area meant we were going to be searching for some restaurants. To get a jump start on the task, and really get a quick feeling for the downtown Durham restaurant scene, we booked a three hour restaurant walking tour with Taste Carolina.

Trip to Goriška Brda, Slovenia Part 2: History, Nature, the Capital and a Little More Grappa

Dinner at Kotlar

Here we continue with our report on the recent trip to Slovenia and the Vinska Klet Goriška Brda Winery. Good things just kept happening.

Sunday, or day three, was all about history, and this region has plenty of it. WWI brought long, bitter and fierce fighting to this region, as the mountains were won and

Part of the harvest

This is a review of a recent trip to the Goriška Brda area of Slovenia, and in particular the Vinska Klet Goriška Brda Winery, who hosted eight representatives from their U.S. distributors as well as myself. Slovenia was an unknown to me and almost everyone I talked to beforehand. Most

A beautiful place!

A Bottle to Remember . . . Forever!

The Archive Vault

I recently had the good fortune to tag along on a distributor trip to the Vinska Klet Goriska Brda winery in the Brda region of Slovenia, just over the eastern Italian border. This is a beautiful wine country of hills, valleys and terraced vineyards, reminding me in some spots of the hills of Barolo and

I’ll be off to the Brda region of Slovenia soon to tour the vineyards and the local wine cooperative, as well as sample lots of their wines. Who knows, might even get a bit of sight seeing in as well. Just over the northeastern Italian border, the Brda region is comprised of rolling hills with

We wanted to go to the Boston Wine Expo this year, but it always seems something is working against us. Last year it was a bout with the flu, this year a forecast for yet another Northeast blizzard. What to do? With reservations in place to be in Chatham on Cape
