24 Hours in Panama City, Part I

When in Rome, er, Panama…

We had a mere 24 hours in Panama City before our cruise on Windstar’s Star Breeze. I booked the earliest flight possible, departing Miami at 7 AM, to maximize our short time in Panama City. That meant that we needed to leave by 4 AM, return a rental car, . . . → Read More: 24 Hours in Panama City, Part I

Michaels Restaurant, Key West

Key West boasts a plethora of great restaurants, and it is impossible to frequent them all. We hadn’t been to Michaels in ages when friends came to town, reserved, and said, “we’ll meet you there!” The outdoor seating is beautiful, the food is good, but it is pricey (even by Key West standards).

Key West Food and Wine Festival: Cool Cars, Frosé, and A Quick Nap

Selfie in a Telsa.

You know the part I look forward to the most at the Key West Food and Wine Festival? Sitting. I spend a lot of time running around, pouring wine and helping others, so when I can finally enjoy a five-course menu, it is a spectacular treat.

Key West Food and Wine Festival: Champagne and Shoe Free

Pouring (and sipping) champagne on the beach. Life doesn’t get better.

Key West Food and Wine Festival springs up at the end of January every year to bring our little town something we desperately need: booze. (That was sarcasm, my friends, as we have plenty of booze and boozy events in Key West; the . . . → Read More: Key West Food and Wine Festival: Champagne and Shoe Free

New York City In Winter: Beyond Smoked Fish

I came from unpacking; my cousin came from working. Clearly, he wins the best-dressed award.

One cannot live on smoked fish alone. Well, maybe some people can, but as much as I love the stuff, I need some variety. Plus, I had other people to see, and that meant checking out a couple of . . . → Read More: New York City In Winter: Beyond Smoked Fish

Key West Food and Wine Festival (Discount Here!)

Everyone has fun at the Key West Food and Wine Festival.

While the rest of the country is freezing (I know, I was in New York City last week), we will be enjoying our flip-flop wearing and wine drinking on the beach. Next Wednesday begins the annual Key West Food and Wine Festival, and . . . → Read More: Key West Food and Wine Festival (Discount Here!)

New York City in the Winter: Brrrr.

Welcome to NY, have some smoked fish.

Most people travel to New York City to see a Broadway show, dine in fabulous restaurants, and visit the Empire State Building. Me? I spent last week unpacking my friends’ apartment. Not to worry, we ate well, too.

Made 2 Order, Tavernier, Florida

The Florida Keys enjoy an abundance of seafood, laid-back charm, and beautiful scenery. It is not difficult to find a roadside restaurant with fantastic water views and Made 2 Order is no different. The inside is small, old, and not terribly inviting. The back patio, however, boasts a peaceful canal view.

Seven Fish, Key West: New Location, Same Great Food

The folks at Seven Fish, formerly housed on the corner of Olivia and Elizabeth Streets in Key West, bought land and built a shiny new restaurant. Watching the construction, it seemed like it took forever. The restaurant closed in the old location for their annual summer vacation in September and reopened in the new . . . → Read More: Seven Fish, Key West: New Location, Same Great Food

A Catamaran, A Dinghy, and a Very Long Swim: A Day in St. Thomas

I don’t swim. I mean, I can swim, but case in point: when we built our (tiny) pool, the pool guy said, “well, you won’t be able to do laps here.” My response? “It’s more of a margarita-drinking pool than a lap-swimming one.” I enjoy existing in a pool, or on the beach, preferably . . . → Read More: A Catamaran, A Dinghy, and a Very Long Swim: A Day in St. Thomas
