Philly w Dessert Zombie

Philly w Dessert Zombie

Many moons ago, Dessert Zombie and I discussed going to Philly. In fact, we even “tried” once – back when I still had Blue Thunder – getting in my car and driving through the city, but due to a late start, excess traffic, and other snafus, it took something like 45 minutes just to cross town. So we decided to give up and stayed in the city, planning to attempt the trip another time down the line. We were determined to eat! and finally, one weekend in April, we made our way to the city of Brotherly Love. First stop:  one [...]

The Butterfly

The Butterfly

Like most friendships, Hungry and I share a love of a number of things (but differ on enough things to keep conversations interesting!). Two things we both love are fried chicken, and restaurants by Michael White. So when she mentioned to me that one of his newest places, The Butterfly, offered fried chicken, there was no question where our next meal together would be. The cocktail list was carefully curated and really, quite beautiful to behold; however, when our awesome server came over and explained the two drink specials to us, one of them immediately caught my attention. It was delicious, [...]

L’Artusi

L’Artusi

What must have been ages and ages ago, I took Hungry of Tasty Eating out for a birthday dinner. I know it was ages ago because first, her birthday is in January! and second, she’s already written about it. Haha. We are both slooooooow bloggers… I think that should be the next movement, like slow food? Slooooow bloggers… ahem.   Funny? or sadly, it’d been so long since I used my dSLR that when I went to take pictures of the first appetizer – roasted mushrooms, fried egg, pancetta and ricotta salata – and then asked Hungry to do the [...]

The Hamptons

The Hamptons

I have a confession to make. Despite having grown up in New York, I’ve never been to the Hamptons. Well, I changed that the weekend after Memorial Day – which is unofficially the start of NYers making their summer weekend sojourns to the Hamptons – when I was invited to be a guest at Southampton Inn. The property was gorgeous, the weather was amazing, and it was just an all around incredible weekend. Thank you to Dede for your generous hospitality!!! Part of the reason I was invited was, of course, to check out the newly revamped Café Oso on premises. Our first [...]

Mohegan Sun

Mohegan Sun

Almost exactly a year ago, I was invited to visit Mohegan Sun for a weekend BBQ fest. Unfortunately, I went on my sabbatical shortly after – I was burnt out from daily blogging – and never posted about the experience. However, I was going through my photos recently and came across the ones from this trip, and remembered how thoroughly I enjoyed my experience that I want to share. The view from my room My very big room with a king size bed. The cool bathroom and me being goofy I was also invited to dine at one of the [...]
