Clinton Wedding Site Rhinebeck Just One Jewel of Hudson Valley

Rhinebeck, the 324-year-old New York State town where Chelsea Clinton staged the overhyped "wedding of the millennium" July 31, is certainly a gentrified charmer these days, with its bistros and Victorian architecture. But apart from being the area where I grew up (in pleasant and not-quite-so-twee Red Hook, part of Rhinebeck till 1812), the rest of the gently rolling Hudson Valley in which it's centrally located is also a trove unto itself,… Continue

Mancation – A Man’s Vacation in Washington Wine Grunge

Once again, I am on the road and looking for interesting things to do while participating in wine tasting (good activity) and less enjoyable shopping. I am in a sort of time warp of suburban Seattle across Lake Washington. This is Woodinville, next to Redmond where Microsoft lives. Back in the 80’s I lived around here. What a change, but life marches on and I just try to keep up these days.

Woodinville is getting big into wine tasting at traditional wineries and tasting rooms.…

Sizzlin’ Eats at Las Vegas' Monte Carlo Hotel

Sticking to the on site restaurants within your hotel does not always make for a wise dining itinerary. Chances are the price point is set for unwitting tourists and the food may not represent the region’s best

offerings. I recently joined a blogger group on a sponsored visit to

Vegas’ Monte Carlo Hotel resolved to challenge this

conventional bit of wisdom. After all, the hotel wasn’t overselling

Small Lot Wines

You‘ve probably heard the term “small lot wines” and took a guess that it refers to wine produced in limited quantities. You would of course be right, but there’s more to it than that. A small lot wine can be produced at a very large winery or a very small winery, or anything in between. As you can imagine, a wine that…

Seduced By The Cayman Island Sisters

Seduced By The Cayman Islands

Most any novel or movie about corporate bad guys somehow always has shady types furtively wiring funds off shore to the Cayman Islands.

Truth is, the three islands that make up the Cayman archipelago are so much more than temples of high finance, regardless of John Gresham's books.

Little Cayman and Cayman Brac are specks of places about a 45 minute puddle… Continue

Miami's Mexican Invasion (of Restaurants, That Is)

Mexican cuisine may be one of America's favorite "ethnics," and Miami may be the single most Latino city in the United States (not to mention an increasingly foodie town in many ways) -- but until recently, Miami has sucked soggy jalapeños when it came to high-quality, authentic fare from the land of tacos and tequila.

Instead, we had to make do with the same chains the rest of the country does: Baja Fresh, Chipotle Grill, Qdoba, On the Border, yada yada, along with an also… Continue
