Sunset sail with Danger Charters... always a good time.
The other evening, I went on a sunset sail aboard Danger Charters with a friend, as she was covering it for a new magazine. Being her “plus one” I was instructed to get contact information for everyone she had in a photo, so she could get their consent for publication. Continue reading Honeymoon in Paradise
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
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
We chose the last seating at Azur’s now-famous Bubbles and Madness brunch during the Key West Food and Wine Festival. That way, we could go straight from brunch to Duval Uncorked, which my liver did not think was such a great idea. We met friends at Azur and although the last seating was quieter than earlier ones, madness ensued. Continue reading Bubbles, Madness and Duval Uncorked
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
Last night we had dinner at our house, which is not too unusual. Several wine geek friends came over, along with a new friend in from Saginaw, Michigan (and yes, I did have Simon and Garfunkel’s “America” in my head for a week… “It took me four days to hitchhike from Saginaw, I’ve come to look for America…“) I know you now have that song stuck in your head, too. You are welcome. Continue reading Wine Dinner: Good Wines, Good Times
I know you have been waiting for these. As usual, it was a crazy time in Key West. Some of these are not for the faint of heart. You have been warned. Enjoy. Continue reading Fantasy Fest 2012: The Photos
Sporting our Venetian masks
I know you can’t wait until next week, so today I am bringing back some of the favorite photos of the last few years. In addition, if you haven’t yet planned out your whole week, here are a few choices for what to do. There is no shortage of drinking, costuming, body painting, etc.
