Wordless Wednesday: Sarasota Easter Bunnies
I collected rabbits a long time ago – ceramic, glass, metal, wood, whatever. While browsing through the treasures at the Sarasota Architectural Salvage booth at the Sarasota Farmers Market, I fell in love with these cast iron bunnies. And yes, one made it home with me.Continue Reading

Wildlife Viewing in Pacci Ristorante Bar, Atlanta
Wildlife viewing in midtown Atlanta? Indeed, it’s possible and I found at least one venue to observe these entertaining, middle-aged and nocturnal creatures. As the night progresses, they exhibit elevated levels of giddiness due to an increase in libation consumption.Continue Reading

Wordless Wednesday: Jelly Bellys!
I attended the South Beach Wine & Food Festival last month (if you haven’t read my interview with Food Network’s Marcela Valladolid, check it out now!) and it’s definitely foodie’s paradise. I stopped by the Jelly Belly booth for my favorite candy and the presentation was just as appetizing as the flavor. Enjoy!Continue Reading

October 2, 2011 Note: Bin 82 has since closed. The restaurant became Tapas One, relocating from Port Charlotte, and is now called TRABUE. The restaurant serves locally inspired dishes and implements the farm-to-table concept when possible. “Blah, blah, blah.” When attending wine tasting and visiting wineries, that’s pretty much what I hear. “Blah, blah, blah.” […]Continue Reading
