Taste Of Iceland 2018

One of our favorite annual events, Taste Of Iceland, returns to Boston this week. I am a big fan of Iceland. The natural beauty of the country compares to no other. Taste Of Iceland celebrates the culture with food, drinks, music, film and design. Show More Summary

Mohegan Sun Wine And Food Fest 2018

To say that we had the most fun with the ladies of Stella Rosa Wines would be an understatement. This was just one of the many fun wines we experienced (they call them semi-sweet, semi-sparkling) at the recent Mohegan Sun Food And Wine Fest. Show More Summary

Tenoch Mexican

Where should we eat? I get asked this question a LOT. Rarely, however, do I get asked: where do you eat most often? And the answer is: Tenoch Mexican in Medford Square. I eat there at least once a week and my favorite is the Chicken Torta. Show More Summary

Brunch Happy Hour At Earls Prudential

It was a long holiday weekend and what better way to enjoy it than with a leisurely, relaxing brunch? So, we headed over to Earls at Prudential Center for their Happy Hour Brunch and were not disappointed, starting with $5.00 Mimosas! The Golden Waffles And Cream were a big hit with everyone at our table. Show More Summary

Finding Your Winter Winefest

We confirmed just yesterday (and were saddened to hear) that the Boston Wine Expo will not be happening this year. This knocks a big weekend out of our winter social calendar as the Expo has for years been the largest of it's kind and one that we regularly attended. Show More Summary

Wine And Chocolate

We were invited to a very fun and informative chocolate and wine tasting recently at Taste Wine Bar And Cafe in the Downtown Crossing area. We not only got to meet Tom and Monica Rogan, owners of Goodnow Farms in Sudbury, but also sipped some interesting new wines. Show More Summary

Caffe Nero At Assembly Row

We stopped by the ever-growing Assembly Row area as part of our busy holiday shopping and social season. One (of many) of the spots that caught our eye was Caffé Nero. ? While we typically prefer an indie coffee shop these are becoming more and more rare, much to our lament. Show More Summary

Frenchie Boston

We stopped by Frenchie Boston in the South End recently for a festive weekend brunch and were not disappointed. It's a chic little spot with an authentic French bistro feel (after all, the owner is from Paris) in this fashionable, eclectic spot in the city. Show More Summary

City Winery Opens

As many may know, the opening of City Winery has been delayed several times but we now can finally say that is officially open for business and waiting for you. We were recently invited to the VIP Opening Party as media guests for this new West End venue and it was quite impressive in scope. Show More Summary

Darlene Love Kicks Off The Holidays In Downtown Crossing At Macy's Tree Lighting

I have so many happy memories of taking trips into Boston with my family as a young child to see the beautiful holiday window displays at Jordan Marsh and Filene's. The temperatures may have been frigid but everyone dressed up when you went shopping in Boston. Show More Summary

Eat Like A Rock Star

What's a great gift during the holiday season for someone who has everything? A new cookbook, of course! And this one is tailor-made for the aspiring musician or one who just enjoys rock stars and good cooking. With over one hundredShow More Summary

Create Your Vibe Event At Cambridgeside

Don't call it Cambridgeside Galleria any more. They just dropped $30 million to redo the entire mall and rebrand it as Cambridgeside. To help celebrate the light and airy new look we were invited to the Create Your Vibe event last week featuring food, fashion and fun something we've been preaching for years. Show More Summary


Heading into the holiday season we'll be featuring some food and food-related products which are standouts in the many, many samples we receive. As we have said before it is rare that we really like a product sent to us to sample and possibly review. Show More Summary

Caramel Patisserie

Word to all the French pastry lovers out there that Caramel Patisserie in Davis Square is now open. It seems they are still ramping up but do have some of the best croissants we've had since, well, being in Paris. All of the pastries are brought in daily from their original bakery in Salem where the kitchens are located. Show More Summary

Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival 2017

Wine And Rosecliff Gala 2017

A heavy, cold mist and brisk winds could not keep the crowd away from Rosecliff mansion in Newport last Friday to kick off a wonderful evening of socializing, drink, and food at the Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival 2017. Among the guests we ran into were Kylie McCallough (l) and Amy Bruni (r) of Ghost Hunters fame. Show More Summary

My Morning With Warhol

Ninety percent of the blog posts here will always be about food. However, we do have a sizable amount of readers who are visitors to Boston and are always looking for fun, interesting things to do. So, I thought I'd share a place to visit just outside Harvard Square and tell the story of my morning with Andy Warhol. Show More Summary
