CFF Main Event Recap 2018

A few of the refreshingly delicious Kettle One flavors. Dressed up my cocktail with a lovely edible flower at the Kettle One bar. Grab and go tiny bottles of Seersucker Gin were probably one of the biggest highlights of this year's event. Adored this Seersucker cocktail. Closeup of the Seersucker Cocktail. And this little piggy stayed home. When it comes to The Biscut Bar at CFF, folks do not PLAY! There's something addictively...

The Victory of Tiny Victories

  Tiny Victories – 5 Stars The same place you can sip a Sazerac is the same place you can swig My Neck, My Daq. Mix 2 parts hip hop hipster, 1 part swank then round it out with the neighborhood bar, shake it up and you’ll pour out Tiny Victories.

Brunch and Other Good Things at Thirsty Lion

  A damn good fried potato aka French fry will always be a spot of weakness for me. Pair that with a well-seasoned spicy crispy chicken sandwich, and I’m ready to commit.  While I am not particularly crazy about a lot of chain eateries, when a place does things right, you’ve got to give props. And, without a doubt Thirsty Lion deserves quite a few props. Late last year Thirsty Lion joined multiple other eateries opening their doors at...

7 Reason’s Eating at Edith’s French Cafe is Essential

  Sauce, mimosas and I’ll go ahead and take ALL of the croissants. Edith’s French Café just gets me. Here are 7 reasons why I can’t no longer live without nearly everything on their menu. P.S., this list could have been much longer.   It’s Beautiful Sunlight simply pours inside this space, which is ironic considering it was once the pretty dark and mediocre seafood restaurant, Rockfish.
