To Err is Human

 

 

Attention Boys and Girls:

 

I’ve got every excuse in the book but I’m not even going to attempt to explain why my bucket list has gone done the tubes.  I will however own it and ask for a reprieve from my friends and fellow bucket list participants.  

 

I know something about me.  I’m either all in or all out and for the past couple of weeks I’ve been the latter.  Here’s a rundown on my inability to deliver on my bucket…

Tech Talk: Interview with Diner Connection

If you're vacationing in a tropical paradise, there is a lot to see: sandy beaches, gorgeous vegetation, and the crystal clear ocean. But none compare to the real reason people love beaches: the phenomenal sunsets.

 

Shawna and Geoffrey Simpson, vacationing in Waikiki, missed that sunset when they found themselves having to stay within 250 feet of a restaurant in order for their buzzer to go off. Through this and a series of frustrating events, the couple came up with a way to…

Yes there is no denying the proverbial train is off the tracks. In the last 5 days I haven’t worked out, I haven’t been conscious about what I’m eating, I drank alcohol on a Monday…

If you run a bar and you don’t have a cocktail menu, you are leaving A LOT of money on the table. Cocktails allow you to take an ordinary spirit, add an ingredient or two and charge a lot more than you normally would.



Who wouldn’t want to take advantage of the extra margins cocktails can give you? I came across this great free website during the week that allows you to choose from over 50 different professionally designed cocktail… Continue

Gayot lists the country’s heart-healthy restaurants

My instinct was to look immediately for the Baltimore restaurants on the Gayot ~ the guide to the good life list of heart-healthy restaurants. As Gayot explains, “A heart-healthy diet has nothing to do with dieting. It's simply a way of eating foods low in sodium, fat and cholesterol.”



Read the complete story and get the list at the… Continue

The secret to having more, to experiencing happiness, is gratitude.

Is Lodi Making California's Best Zinfandels?

I suppose that before I go making bold-faced statements like Lodi is making the best Zinfandels in California today, I should at least qualify it. So if you will,



1. In recent years I simply have not found Zinfandels from anywhere else in the state that have been as consistently good, i.e. Zinfandel-ish, in the $12-$19 retail price range as those from Lodi. In the restaurant business, where I’m coming from, this means wines I can sell for $6-$9 a glass, which is where most… Continue

Dreams of Velvety Reds

I have this recurring dream. It's almost mid-day. We wake up late, and haven't yet eaten. So after stopping at a tiny charcuterie for some sausages, marinated olives, a round of local bread – tasting of freshly risen dough, not salt or chemicals, crusted on the outside, silky on the inside – and a bottle of wine, we follow a winding brook outside the village in search of a restaurant in the sky.



The vestiges of morning chill are still in the air as our shoes crunch over some loose,… Continue

What's Cutting-Edge in Wine Programs Today?

What’s happening in restaurant wine programs today?



This question almost begs a look back twenty five, thirty years ago when I first started in the business, and was literally hand scripting 70, 80 selection wine lists, switching out pages of glass selections and new fangled California “boutique” wines on a weekly basis. Hard to believe, but White Zinfandel was considered an innovation in those days, and Riesling spätlesen, Sauvignon Blanc and even Chenin Blanc sold… Continue
