Mare Mio Restaurant

It’s the middle of one of the most massive tourist seasons here in South Florida, and we are on the parking lot better known as I-95 thinking about where to take our relatives from the UK. They mention Lincoln Road, which on many days is a wonderful place to go. With so many shops and…

Circ Hotel and Olivia Restaurant

Packers Game at Bokampers

Saturday night brings me to Bokampers to watch the Green Bay Packers loose to the Arizona Cardinals, though just barely. OK, so I was a bit disappointed at the outcome of the game, but it was well played by both sides. Bokampers Sports Bar and Grill, was well played too. It’s an upscale sports bar…
