Review: The Echo

It’s no secret that Terry and I can usually be found at Tucker’s on Sunday mornings.  One day, when we had to go to breakfast  early– Tucker’s doesn’t open until 9 or so (I think!)– we pondered where to eat (home was not an option!).  […]

An Old Friend: The Peanut-Banana Smoothie

Review: Wild Ginger

Mini-Update:  Newport Pizza Company

Mini-Update: Newport Pizza Company

On Veggie Option’s recommendation (well, Mr. Veggie Option’s), I tried the BBQ Chicken Pizza on Saturday night. Wow– pretty good stuff. I had had Italianette BBQ Chicken Pizza earlier that day (the original location on Plainfield, not the cheap imitation on Erie) and I am […]
