Live bloggin from the beach…

February 27, 2009

In South Beach for a wedding this weekend and despite my best efforts to remain healthy the abundance of eateries has gotten the best of me.

Yesterday we paid homage to Top Chef contestant Jeff McInnis and had lunch at the Dilido Beach Club. I must say for a beach-side restaurant, I was really impressed. Similar places always seem overpriced and over-hyped.  Perhaps the drinks were a bit pricey, but the cuisine was spot-on. A great selection of Tapas, salads, sandwiches, etc.

Breakfast thus far has commenced at David’s Cafe. A great spot for standard continental breakfast with a Cuban twist. My new fav… Cuban toast!

More to come with meals planned at le sandwicherie, the Ritz-Carlton, the National Hotel and more!

For now, I’m just tryin to enjoy the sun! Perhaps some poolside live blogging is in the cards?

One nation, under DOG!

There has certainly been enough news coverage surrounding the upcoming inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama. Now I’m not saying that I’m not excited, but it raises a question, when is enough, enough already?

Well today I changed my mind on that theory thanks to the below promotion from the Lowes Regency Hotel on Park Avenue in New York City featuring Executive Chef Marc Ehrler and his dog Stinky

Now anyone who knows me understands that I am passionate about a few things: food (obv.), jets/mets, blondie, and of course… BULLDOGS!

I have stayed at the Lowes in Miami… GREAT HOTEL. Thanks to this, I can definitely say that I’ll be back.

Behold the 2009 “inDOGuration”… featuring new items on the Lowes Loves Pets menu…
