Owner Sally is on hand to offer a smile to every diner.
Cafe Seville has long been regarded (by me, and many others) as one of the best restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. It is not trendy. The menu hardly changes. The room is dark. So what is so great about it? The food, the service and the friendliness of the owners. What more could you want? Continue reading Cafe Seville, Fort Lauderdale
The view from our table
The Dania Beach pier overlooks a calm, peaceful stretch of beach. Atop the pier sits Quarterdeck restaurant, a casual, neighborhood kind of place. It is a fairly typical menu of sandwiches, salads and seafood, with the addition of sushi and a bar. It was a lovely place to have a lunch meeting recently. Continue reading Quarterdeck, Dania Beach, FL
Tomorrow marks the grand opening of Harlo’s Healthy Pets retail location in Hollywood, FL. Until now, they have been an online-only shop delivering mainly in Broward county. Pet Servants outside of their delivery zone can now rejoice. Harlo’s is open to the public and you can go in and pick up your order, even if you are too far away for them to deliver. C’mon, you know your precious beast is worth an extra few minutes in the car. Continue reading Harlo’s Healthy Pets, Hollywood, FL
Last night the bars of Wilton Manors really rolled out the welcome mat for the 3 Loud Women, and posse. We had quite a nice group of people for our first ever bar crawl, and a good time was had by all. We started at the Village Pub, giving out t-shirts and making new friends. Continue reading Wilton Manors: The Bars

A good start to the meal.
Although I tend to frequent independently owned restaurants, as Key West has plenty of them, once in a while a chain serves a purpose. You know what you are going to get. This weekend, before the big hundredth birthday bash, we went to McCormick and Schmick’s for dinner with my in-laws.

In March of 1913, according to the New York Times (which cost one cent, or, if you were outside of New York, two cents), there were a million phone lines in New York. Now? Who knows? Between cell phones, land lines, businesses, I would go out on a limb and say a lot more than that. In 1913, men’s suits were advertised for $19 and a cruise on the RMS Olympic, the sister ship to the Titanic, was advertised at just over $100/person. Continue reading One Hundred
A sugar high for everyone.
This past weekend we went to a Bat Mitzvah of a lovely thirteen year old that I have known since she was about six. At some point mid-service, FKGuy, realized that the girl getting Bat Mitzvah-ed is a real person, not a little kid anymore, and clearly I have known her mom for a very long time. (So we feel old). Continue reading Rite of Passage
My friends had been raving about this place for weeks, so when we found ourselves in Hollywood one weekend, we decided to give it a try. (Well, it is not so much that we decided, as our friends calling and saying “We’ll pick you up at 10. We are going to Chill Bar.”) Continue reading Chill Bar, Hollywood, FL
Party in my mouth wings!
Recently I had a meeting in Miami that started with lunch at The Filling Station. To say it is kitchy would be an understatement. With menu items named after cars and trucks, and sandwiches served with tater tots, I knew there was going to be some good food here, too. Continue reading The Filling Station, Miami
