What to Eat in Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam

We spent 10 days in Southeast Asia with stops in Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. In between beaches, massages (our preferred method of avoiding rising 90° mid-afternoon heat), elephants and more beaches, I found time to try the food. Here are some highlights:...

Puerto Rico: Where to Eat in San Juan

The high-energy town of Condado in San Juan, Puerto Rico, may not be what you’d expect–the streets are full of Chinese restaurants, New York-style pizza joints, and American fast food.  Ask a local what the deal is and they might reply that Puerto Ricans are just...

5 Things to Try in Annapolis

We love getting away to nearby Annapolis during the warmer months.  This quaint little town by the water is small but packs a lot of charm.  There aren’t as many options compared to DC, but there are highlights not to be missed.  Be sure to take a loop on the free...
Maryland: 24 Hours in Baltimore

Maryland: 24 Hours in Baltimore

Rarely do I go to Baltimore. Not because there aren’t things to do there. In fact, Baltimore’s grown to be quite the quick getaway destination for Washingtonians. No, no, the problem for me is that having so many cocktails that I lose my purse in the trash, then...

Where to Eat in New Orleans, Part I

My trip to New Orleans sure was a good time.  I haven’t had that much fun since Paula Deen hosted cornmeal-buttermilk wrestling at the Playboy Mansion. Louisiana Creole cooking is influenced by a melting pot of cultures–French, Spanish, African, among others–which is...
10 Things to Do in San Francisco

10 Things to Do in San Francisco

As a true East Coast girl who had never been to San Francisco before April, I am head-over-heels in love with this city. I haven’t been this smitten since my 6th grade boyfriend asked via email if he could kiss me, with the subject line: URGENT.All mushiness aside, SF...
Where to Eat in Philadelphia

Where to Eat in Philadelphia

Some argue that Philadelphia sucks.  I strenuously object.  I love its outdoor murals, funky South Street shops, art in the park, liberal BYOB policy and people who go out of their way to be kind (raging Eagles fans excluded). More thrillingly, I love that Philly’s...
