Tonight, eight of us gather to celebrate our friend’s birthday… Celebrate in style… Shooters is one of Fort Lauderdale’s finest dining experiences. Inside or on the extensive dock with killer…

Grilled Cheese – Home Cooking 

Eating well does not always mean eating out… You might think from this blog that I live an amazing life and eat out every day. The truth is, that no I don’t. I live a very modest life and have to budget my limited resources just like anyone else. That means I have to eat…

Hemingway Bistro

Hemmingway’s Bistro is one of the most undervalued and underappreciated fine dining restaurants in the Hollywood — Dania Beach Area. I think the patrons actually want to keep it a secret. Inside, you are reminded of a small Italian village. You know, the one you’ve always wanted to visit but somehow never got around to it….

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…

Football is back

It’s not even September, but football, and by football I mean the Green Bay Packers are playing preseason games. The great part about watching the Packers is seeing them win. The hard part about watching the Packers is actually being able to see them. You can see the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, and the…

La Huaca Peruvian 

It was just another Wednesday evening and we thought we deserved sushi because you know – Sushi! But our plans were changed when we saw La Huaca on Harrison Street in downtown Hollywood Florida. Perhaps because it is more frequented by tourists, Hollywood boulevard is always busy. Surprisingly many restaurants come and go even with…

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…

Mozart Cafe

    “Next year we shall be in Jerusalem.” If you’re Jewish, or have an affinity with or towards the Jewish people you will know the meaning of those words spoken every Passover. Leaving behind the many other aspects of Jerusalem and its sister city Tel Aviv, one of the things they are quickly being…

Siam Rice Thai & Tapas

Two Dos Equis begin our evening So, what do the good people of the world do in celebration of Cinco de Mayo (Mexican Independence Day)? Well, mostly we gringos go and drink ourselves to oblivion, while the Mexicans who should be celebrating are busy serving us. I’m hoping that inside Mexico itself there are more…

Mr. M’s Sandwich Sub Shop

With all due respect to Subway, they will NEVER, and I repeat never get the art of making a sandwich just right. While their sandwiches may be adequate for the nutrition needs of supermodels, who eat nothing, for real humans Subway sandwiches are undernourishment meals at best. Subways are many. Real sub shops in this…
