Nashville, TN – a city of more than just Honky Tonk

Each year my friend Stacey and I travel to a US city neither of us have been to before.  We have enjoyed some great weekends in LA, Savanah, Seattle and Niagara on the Lake to name a few.  This year we picked Nashville. Steeped in history, Nashville is known for many things – the birthplace of country & western music and of course the Grand Ole Opry, the Honky Tonk capital of the world and now bachelorette central for the US.  This review will focus more on the dining and historic touring scene of the city with a little...

The Gucci Diaries  

Welcome to The Gucci Diaries.  Please meet a favorite Gucci of mine, the Gucci Lady Webb Bag.  This small but roomy little minx can be a cross body or shoulder bag by adjusting the classic Gucci colors red and green strap.  Perfect for running about town hands-free.  After visiting this bag for a few weeks I took my friends for a look and to confirm I was insane for even thinking about purchasing it.   My friend, Libby confidently told the sales person we would be back right after brunch because I was definitely going to buy her today.  She was...

Dining in South Beach, Miami

For my big birthday weekend I had the idea to revisit a place I used to go to in my younger years, South Beach, Miami.  I knew I didn’t want to replicate the past, that would be silly, but rather to create some new memories.  I have to say I initially thought I had made the biggest mistake ever!  10 women in their 40s and one turning 50 (me) during a Hip Hop weekend in South Beach as opposed to my first idea of a relaxing spa weekend certainly made for memories none of us will ever forget.  Our...

A wine lovers dream: A day at Opus One Winery with winemaker Michael Silacci

Ever since I had my first sip of Opus One wine back in 2011 I have had a little bit of an obsession with this emperor of wines. A few months after my review where I did embarrassingly compare the Opus One 2007 to Brad Pitt, Opus One’s winemaker, Michael Silacci thanked me with an invite to a night to remember dinner at L’Espalier where I was joined by my friend, Rob aka BosGuy. The side-by-side tasting of the 2007 and 2008 I shared with Michael at one of Boston’s finest restaurants are the kind of memories I keep with me and think about when I’m having...

Wine Tasting:  French vs. Argentinian Malbec

Each year I offer a wine tasting at my home as part of my company’s annual charity.  I absolutely love hosting, love talking about wine but more importantly I love that so many people seem to want to join me in my wine enthusiasm away from the office.  I always wait until springtime to do this so people are not trudging through the miserable weather of a Boston winter and this past Saturday was the perfect evening.  About 15 colleagues and significant others joined me in a French vs. Argentinian Malbec tasting where we learned that an Hungarian Farmer...
