When did the “plus one” become part of society? And when is it appropriate to invite a plus one? When is it not? Is it ever OK for your dog to be your plus one? (I guess that is a different post all together…) I know most of the time this question pops up around weddings, but every once in a while, it comes up other times, too. Continue reading Plus One
The Saturday evening lineup
We kicked off our Saturday evening with good friends, good food and some good wine. A casual meal on the deck of salads, grilled steaks and chocolate lava cakes was topped off by Champagne (Lanson, Black Label, NV), T-Vine Grenache (2011), Howell Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon (2005) and Castelnau de Suduiraut (2003). After conflicting schedules, moves, and life getting in the way, we finally managed to get to have dinner with these friends. And it was good. Continue reading New Additions and Great Meals
Any weekend that starts like this is going to be good.
Ahhhhh, the glorious days of lounging in Key West, being totally relaxed with nothing to do. Alas, that was not this past weekend. We had plenty to keep us busy. The weekend kicked off with a feast of sushi at Origami. Yum, yum, yum. In addition, Babka got to play the part of doggie ambassador (more on that on her blog
next week.) Continue reading Weekend Recap
It was the start of a very good eating weekend. Due to hectic schedules, moves and other craziness, we hadn’t seen some friends in a while. Our dinner for four on Saturday turned into dinner for seven, as they had house guests. My operating theory is usually the more, the merrier, and this was no exception. Continue reading It’s a Secret
A little bummed that we only had one bottle of this...
The easiest way to notice that things have started to return to some level of normal is by the food. When we start having people over for dinner again, all is (almost) right in our world. The other night, our friends came over for a low-key dinner. Continue reading Back to Normal
This was the winning dress, although this image is from the Cache website, as I am sure my mother would have never allowed an in-store photo.
When someone asks my opinion, I give it to them. Hey, I sometimes give my unsolicited opinion, too. But I will tell you what I honestly think, and if you don’t want to know, you should not have asked. Continue reading A Matter of Opinion
Dunkin’ Donuts has really good coffee, and now you may win some of that black, caffeinated goodness for a year. If you are one of the first 100 customers tomorrow, Saturday, February 23 you will win one free coffee a week for a whole year. That should keep you awake for a little while. Continue reading Free Coffee, Dunkin’ Donuts Key West
The Grand Tasting is one of the signature events at the Key West Food and Wine Festival. This year it was held at the Sculpture Garden in front of the Waterfront Playhouse. The weather was typical for south Florida in January, meaning clear skies, cooler temps and the perfect weather to hang outdoors. Continue reading Key West Food and Wine Festival: The Grand Tasting
Key West Food and Wine Festival kick off party
Last night was the kick off of the Key West Food and Wine Festival, and there is no better place to do that than on the sand at the Southernmost Hotel on the Beach. Tables with wine and food are set up as guests mingle and the sun sets. Continue reading It Ends With Grease
