How to drink like an Adult on St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is next weekend (Sunday, March 17th)  and millions of Americans will be out, overindulging and celebrating their “heritage” for a day. Recently found I that I am 1% Irish/Scottish from Ancestry.com. Therefore I can give my opinion with 1% authority.  This year I’m hoping you can forget about the green beer and…

Tap 42 Hamburger Monday

Long before anyone has heard about this blog, Tap 42 has been having its Monday burger night. While it used to be more encompassing, Monday 1/2 price burger night is still a great deal at a fantastic bar. On almost every Monday night, and just about every other night of the week Tap 42’s location in…

Stratford’s Closing

About 81 years ago when Hollywood, Florida was a sleepy frontier style town, Stratford’s opened. Sadly this amazing historical bar will soon be closed to make way for a pot shop. I would think with the many vacant storefronts available in Hollywood a pot shop could go anywhere. But here we are. While I think it’s…

101 Ocean – Our Birthday Destination

My wife has a lot of friends, like a serious amount, so we seem to attend many birthdays. We both love these birthday gatherings as it brings our ‘groups’ together, and our friends can catch up on the details of our quickly moving lives. I’m often the group photographer too, but that’s another story. One…

Drinks at the Boatyard

One of the not-so-secret secrets of Fort Lauderdale is the Boatyard restaurant. Located right on the intercoastal, this is one of those see and be seen places. Well known for its half-price happy hour and ladies night specials, the Boatyard is a popular place for singles (and their friends) who are looking to meet other…

Circ Hotel and Olivia Restaurant

As my wife would say, South Beach has finally come to Hollywood. The Circ Hotel is definitely bringing a high class ‘South Beach” vibe to the circle in downtown Hollywood Florida.  With a hotel, two amazing bars and a restaurant that I’ll talk about in just a minute, the Circ Hotel and Apartments is a…

Dania Beach Casino Buffet

  There is no shortage of casinos in Broward and Miami-Dade counties. The Casino at Dania Beach was completely updated about a year ago when it was called Dania  Jai-Alai. The new casino is a local treat. It is cozy enough so you don’t need a GPS, but large enough to have everything you need in a…

Paolo’s Three’s Company 

  Rather quickly it seems South Florida is recovering from Hurricane Irma. We are thankful that we fared far better than our friends on the West Coast, including Naples and Tampa and were spared the utter devastation of the Florida Keys. I’m hoping I can return to the Keys sometime soon. In the meantime FPL is doing…

The Riverside Hotel 

Fort Lauderdale, South Florida is known for many things, however, history isn’t one of them. One of the rare exceptions is The Riverside Hotel which adds a touch of glamour and history to the otherwise recent chapter in human history made possible by air conditioning. Located in trendy (and expensive) Las Olas, the Riverside Hotel…

Schnitzel Haus

In the deep snow covered mountains of North Miami, there is a small German outpost that brings a culture from another continent to our fair metropolis. I would have never heard of such a place even though it seems like the restaurant and pils bar has been here since, well it’s certainly been here a…

Shenanigan’s

Yes that man in the red bandana had a sword! Drinks are cheap, TV’s are all over and music is diverse and loud. Looking for a bar where everyone knows your name? Well, maybe that’s not here, but everyone, and I do mean everyone is here… Shenanigan’s practices the lost art of a neighborhood bar…
