U: Unique Vibe
B: Big flavor

… and they’re not lying! Between the lip-lickin’ burgers, the great vibes, spiked milkshakes (uh huh… more on that below) and the fresh flavors, this place has truly got it all. Continue Reading…

Red Phone Booth: A Prohibition Experience

Red Phone Booth Atlanta

Imagine this… It’s the Roaring 20’s. The music is swingin and jazz is jumpin, but, Prohibition is the order of the day. What this means is that alcohol is prohibited. Banned. Illegal. Can you imagine not being able to belly up to your favorite bar and order your go-to sip? It’s crazy when you really think about it.

Since alcohol drinking was banned, you had to be very, very secretive if you wanted to partake in a few sips. To enjoy your favorite spirits you had to visit a “secret place,” a speakeasy as they called it. And it was all by word-of-mouth… Absolutely no mention of this underground establishment to anyone; only those who knew, knew. It was real hush hush…

Enter Red Phone Booth. A modern-day speakeasy where you can enjoy chic cocktails over great conversation, all set in Prohibition-era style. (And without worry of the lawman breaking up the party) 🙂 At Red Phone Booth, you don’t have to imagine what this experience would be like… you can experience it yourself! RPB has created a super authentic ‘20s-era lounge that really plays into the Prohibition era. And it’s oh-so fabulous darling!!!! Continue Reading…

My Fare Lady Macarons: French Flair with Southern Flavor

My Fare Lady Macarons

I have something to confess. My hubby is wonderful and all, but my one true amour is macarons. There’s just something about these sweet treats that get me so excited. Maybe it’s because I’m a dessert fanatic fiend, or maybe it’s because these adorable little pastries are a flavor-filled adventure in every bite. Yep… definitely the latter. (And only a pinch of the former.) 😉 Continue Reading…

Bonefish Grill Drops Anchor at Akers Mill Square

Bonefish Grill Akers Mill

For those of you who know me, you know that I’m a big fan of Bonefish Grill! No matter where I am, I always seem to find one. I’ve had many an amazing time at Bonefish in The Woodlands TX, and several lunch dates at their Alpharetta spot, so I’m super excited to announce that they just opened a new location at Akers Mill Square in Atlanta, which just so happens to be a stones throw from the new soon-to-open SunTrust Park.

East Coast Wings + Grill: Wings That Zing + Other Things

East Coast Wings + Grill

Wing fanatics, assemble!

Wings are one of those go-to foods I always love to get my hands on especially when I’m having a few sips or watching sports with the hubby. It’s just something about good ol’ wings that just seem to go hand-in-hand with hanging out and having a good time.

So, needless to say, I was pretty thrilled to hear that an East Coast Wings + Grill recently made its way to my neck of the woods. They recently opened in downtown Atlanta and I had the special chance to take my tastebuds on a tasting tour with some of their tasty wing flavors (among other yummy things!). Continue Reading…

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander: An Adventure Waiting to Happen

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander

Special moments call for special transportation. And while the hubby and I couldn’t snag a chauffeur for our anniversary adventures, we got the next best thing: a test-drive with the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander.

And let me tell you: we were riding in style! You know how they say “the journey is half the fun”… Well, I’d have to agree whole-heartedly! With the awesome features the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander has, we almost didn’t want to get out of this baby… even after we arrived at our destinations (almost!). Continue Reading…
