Visit the 611 Foot Multnomah Waterfall in Oregon

Though it was hard to break away from downtown Portland's foodie haven, I needed something else to do besides stuffing my face all day. Bonus if it will burn any of the thousands of excess ingested calories. So, we headed out of town for a short half-day, waterfall hiking trip. Multnomah Falls is a 611 foot cascading […]

Eat Meaty Chocolate Salami in Portland

The same foodie guy who strongly suggested we go to Dean's Scene in Portland, the ultimate man cave bar, also recommended visiting the very meaty Olympic Provisions. Since I had such a great experience in the aforementioned dude haven I opted to trust his judgment again. Good choice. Olympic Provisions is a European-style restaurant and salumeria, with onsite curing facilities. They […]

Though many believe that my husband is a 'nice Italian boy', he is actually a sweet Native American man. And each year the tribe he belongs to holds their annual Pow Wow in Oregon, just an hour and a half from downtown Portland. The perfect opportunity to visit one of the coolest towns in the United […]

A Savannah Swag Bag Giveaway

I walked away from my recent Savannah Media Trip with a crap load of swag. That makes it sound like it is a bunch of poopy stuff…and it's not. It's really good junk. And even though "getting swag" is on my bucket list, there is more than I need or could possibly use. Welcome to […]

Tell a Love Story Through an International Rose Garden

In lieu of Peter ever giving me flowers again, I made him take me to Portland's International Rose Test Garden, a place where hybridists sent roses from around the world in order to keep them safe against the bombings of World War I. In the rose garden, there were thousands of the most beautiful roses on the planet. […]

Have an Adventurous Meal of Pigeon, Heart & Cheeks

Truth be told, I really wanted to dine at Oregon’s Le Pigeon because they were known to have pigeon on their menu. And my extreme lameness wanted to be able to say that I “ate a pigeon at Le Pigeon”. It was purely a bonus that their menu was also filled with other offal; duck heart, pork cheeks and foie gras […]

Drink in the Ultimate Oregon Man Cave

We were sitting at the bar at Tasty n Sons eating our fried cauliflower with olives and chatting with a cook from Olympic Provisions, when he strongly recommended we go to Dean's Scene. With all of my hours of 'things to do in Portland, Oregon" research this name escaped me. What? Where? He continued to give us a lengthy explanation of what […]

Heed the Warning at the Nakalele Blowhole in Maui

While staying at the Ritz Carlton in West Maui, we temporarily needed to escape the wind and rain of Kapalua. My hair just couldn't take it anymore. Typically, we would flee by heading South to dine at a favorite restaurant in Lahaina, but today we decided to travel North towards the Nakalele Blowhole. The Nakalele […]

Play a Machine at the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas

In my younger years, an afternoon out with my father typically included a visit to the local arcade where we spent hours trying to beat high scores on the video games and pinball machines. I am the self-proclaimed Galaga master. I wanted to relive those years. Or at least have my initials flashing on the […]
