Stella Artois joins Water.org to help end global water crisis with return of ‘Buy a Lady a Drink’ campaign

I recently saw a television ad for the Stella Artois “Buy a Lady a Drink” campaign featuring a beautiful Stella Artois chalice, or glass goblet. Intrigued by the campaign, I decided to do a little research to find out more information about it. I also, of course, purchased a couple of the chalices. From the […]

Schnitzel, Schnaps, and lots and lots of Bier: Oktoberfest Bier Fest at Busch Gardens

One of my travel dreams is to explore the castles, towns, and traditions of Germany and Austria and to attend Oktoberfest in Munich. Well, Munich and Austria are not happening in my very near future, so I jumped at the chance to live out a bit of my Bavarian background (my maiden name is Eisentrout […]

Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign: Ways you can help support the cause

The statistics surrounding childhood hunger are staggering … 1 out of 5 K-8 teachers say they regularly see children come to school hungry. 16 million kids (that equals 1 out of 5) in America live in a household without consistent access to adequate and nutritious food. More than 20 million kids get free or reduced-price […]

Share Our Strength Culinary Events: Taste of the Nation, Dine Out, and the NYC Food and Wine Festival

Usually my research leads me to the latest travel trends, the best beaches or the newest theme park rides (that is, when it isn’t sending me off to cute puppy pictures and amazing online shopping opportunities). Sometimes, though, it takes me down an entirely different path. It all began with Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville (which probably […]

‘Downton Abbey’ Wines and Teas: Bring a bit of Britain to your Viewing Party

Plum pudding, tea, and hot cross buns … it’s time for a “Downton Abbey” party. I, personally, have not gotten around to catching the Downton fever that so many across the country have contracted. I am, however, intrigued by the post-Edwardian era of the show, and I love the idea of spending an hour or […]

Walt Disney Parks to Enhance Access to EpiPen Auto-Injectors

As a parent, I’m thankful that I don’t have to worry about food allergies – or any other type of allergy, for that matter. I can’t imagine the stress and worry that parents of children with severe allergies must go through, especially when traveling. Many theme parks have implemented special menus and created alternate choices […]

Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort coming to Fort Lauderdale in 2015

One of my favorite brands is making its way to another beach location. Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Beach Resort already has a tropical presence on Pensacola Beach, and it will soon be among the soft sand of Hollywood Beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Opening in summer 2015, the destination resort and entertainment complex will be situated […]

SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment and Coca-Cola Create Earth-Friendly Refillable Cup

  You all know how much I love the refillable cup.  Every year, my first purchase at my local theme park is a cup that can be used all season long for .99 refills, and I’ve got a cabinet full of them to prove it. Not only do they save a bit of moolah on drinks, […]
