The Smallest. Bathroom. Ever.

Posted by 1 year ago 0 Comments 96 views

My unsolicited advice to anyone who is building or designing a bathroom in a hotel suite … MAKE IT LARGE ENOUGH FOR TWO PEOPLE! Really. This was by far the worst hotel bathroom I have ever been in. And it was a suite! Recently, Roni and I went to Denver to scope out two hotels for […]

Reviewing The Essex

Posted by 2 years ago 1 Comments 49 views

Two weeks ago The Husband and I embarked for The Essex in Vermont not knowing what to expect. Neither of us has traveled to New England nor stayed at a culinary resort. It really was an anniversary adventure. At least as adventurous as we wanted it to be. Pulling into The Essex we were excited. […]

Celebrating 12 Years at Clementine

Posted by 2 years ago 3 Comments 129 views

Today is my 12th wedding anniversary. I keep saying it over and over because I honestly can’t believe it. This was us a few days before our wedding in 2001. We’re so young and “huggy.” This is us Friday night. We’re so happy and “smiley.” Oh and full! We just finished dinner at a new-to-us […]

It’s Day 2 of The 7-Year-Old’s Fabulous Spring Break Staycation and we were all about The Maryland Science Center. We headed out a little before 10 a.m. and the boys were ready! The Science Center is in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor area. It’s actually a cinch to get to and in a pedestrian friendly area. This […]

This past weekend I had a chance to stay and play at Pechanga Resort and Casino while in Temecula CA for a running event. I had NO idea what to expect. The hotel was one of a dozen or so listed on the event’s site and when I saw “casino” in the name I was […]

Four Courses at Woodberry

Posted by 2 years ago 1 Comments 51 views

Last Friday the husband and I had dinner reservation at the Woodberry Kitchen with friends. This is one of those Baltimore restaurants I hear everyone talk about, but getting there is a bit of a chore. So much so, most people I know that do go regularly rarely do dinner but enjoy their famous Sunday […]

“I Will Never Eat Bread Again…

Posted by 2 years ago 1 Comments 98 views

…unless it’s as good as the bread I had at Teresa Caffe” That was my immediate response after taking a bite from the bread basket at Teresa Caffe in Princeton NJ. Every year The Husband’s company throws the best Holiday Party. This year we got all dressed up… …for a night at the Nassau Inn. […]

Don’t Know How You Do the Voodoo That You Do

Posted by 2 years ago 5 Comments 1562 views

A couple of weeks ago Jen and I went to Portland, Oregon to investigate the home of FitBloggin’13, a conference I organize and host. Jen promised she wouldn’t check out all the touristy things since we only had 24 hours and a business meeting, but she just couldn’t help herself. I received this email just […]

Staying true to my definition of and commitment to “travel,” The Husband and I headed out last night to kick off one crazy busy weekend. It was worth it. My friend Jim Doran was in his first ever solo art show and I just had to go. He’s not only a good friend but his […]

Pairings: Wine for Dummies

Posted by 2 years ago 6 Comments 154 views

I’m not a wine person. There’s a few words that kind of sound familiar when wine people talk, like Sauvignon, Riesling and Port, but everything else might as well be a foreign language. I’m better at translating the teacher’s wah wah wah from Charlie Brown than understanding a sommelier. And yes, I had to google […]

Burning Lips Boonrasa

Posted by 2 years ago 7 Comments 1580 views

Strolling in the Financial District of Manhattan, right next to the 9/11 Memorial, we spotted Boonrasa. After being fed conference food for 3 days we salivated at the thought of a fresh warm meal, but were hesitant to try this unknown restaurant that was completely empty at 6 PM on a Saturday. Don’t judge a book by it’s […]

Hibernating at the Sushi Den!

Posted by 2 years ago 4 Comments 61 views

Walked two blocks , made a right and saw this sushi place that Roni and I decided to try.  It was literally four blocks from the Hilton and was a “local” place.  We definately are not the FORMAL type. The menu was fairly normal with the california roll, spicy tuna rolls, and even a crunchy […]
