I am not one of those people that will be rushing out at 2:00 a.m. to snag all of the great Black Friday deals. Nope, I’m more of a lay-in-bed-until-10-and-then-drink-hot-chocolate kind of person. You won’t find me in a store on Black Friday. And if you do, call the police because I’ve probably been kidnapped. […]

My favorite Super Bowl ad is always the one where some revered player says “I’m going to Disney World! (or Land as the case may be). The folks at Disney sure know what they’re doing because that is always the time of year that I most want to be in a Disney park or resort. […]

Half Shell Raw Bar, Key West, Makes Cover of Kenny Chesney single ‘When I See This Bar’

Laid-back beach bars, island locations and good music always seem to go hand in hand. If anything can bring it home even more, and toss in an artistic touch, it is an artist/performer like Kenny Chesney. A Key West establishment that sings of the images and feelings evoked in many of Chesney’s songs has just […]

Dunkin’ Donuts opens at two Great Wolf Lodge locations

For most of us, getting away from it all doesn’t necessarily mean that we want to leave it “all” behind. We still need that occasional cup of coffee or a tasty treat to keep us going. Whether we’re at the beach, waiting in an airport or off on a waterpark adventure, we need that jolt […]
