Take a Luxury Cruise and Ruin All Future Regular Cruises

First off, my apologies for the months and months with no new postings here—I’m sure you’ve all been absolutely despondent without our regular updates. Some health challenges, job changes, and general laziness on my part have all contributed to our massive slowdown. But we’ve still been traveling, and we’ve damn sure still been eating, so …

Brave the Crowds and Try This Busy Italian Restaurant in Richmond

If you visit this site, you know we’ve been on a bit of a Richmond kick recently. Our first visit back in July was eye-opening, and our second visit a few weeks ago was, if anything, even better. During our most recent visit, between all the biscuit eating, not to mention our return visit to …

How to Spend a Perfect Week in Paris

Last November, we spent Thanksgiving week in Paris. Our first trip to Paris wasn’t much of a success, so we were damned and determined to get it right this time. How’d we do this? We limited the number of sites to see each day, we slowed our pace of life to be more Parisian, and, …

Restaurant Review: Delia’s Mediterranean Grill and Brick Oven Pizza | Alexandria, VA

Over on our Restaurants Page, we write reviews of our favorite places to dine out. These have included some of D.C.’s hottest spots and restaurants by celebrity chefs. Not to be overlooked, though, are local neighborhood gems that, while they may not have the caché of big-name restaurants, can still be excellent go-to options. In …

Two Breakfasts and a Lunch in Old Town Alexandria

Last weekend, we awoke majorly craving bagel sandwiches. It was the kind of craving only brought on by a night of drinking the evening prior. Unfortunately, Alexandria’s bagel scene is majorly lacking, to be charitable. At least it was…until Genuine Water Bagels recently came to town! Over on our DC Restaurants Page, we just posted …

Where to Eat and Drink in Virginia Beach

Last summer, we spent three fun-filled days only a few short hours from home in Virginia Beach. We drank, we swam in the ocean, and, of course, we tried out a ton of local restaurants. Over on our Travel Page we’ve just posted our guide to eating and drinking around Virginia Beach. Check out our …

Avowed city dwellers though we are, we recently set out to enjoy a quiet weekend at the lake at nearby Lake Anna, VA. A little fresh air, a little sunshine, and some swimming in a nice, cool lake sounded like just the thing for a June weekend. This did not go as planned. Over on …
