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 […]

Have A Private Wine Tasting in Napa Valley

There are several wine related perks to owning a restaurant; sales reps are consistently leaving you full bottles of wine from the vineyards they are currently promoting, you receive dozens of comped passes to a variety of wine events, wine tastings and freebie promotional wine swag. I now have a corkscrew for every room in my house. Bathrooms included.  But, […]

A goal that has sat on my bucket list for a lengthy amount of time is to extract honey from a beehive. So, when I saw a trip to Savannah Bee Company on my Georgia itinerary I was like a giddy school girl, fantasizing about being decked out in a white polyester jumpsuit and yielding a smoker? […]
