Recipe: Olive-Eggplant Spread

Recipe: Olive-Eggplant Spread

Our friend Drew had a “High End” party this past weekend. The concept: everyone brings a “high end” appetizer. No cocktail sausages in barbecue sauce, no Velveeta-based queso dip. We were to try to be homemade if we could. The turnout was great and the […]

Shameless Plug: It’s A Wonderful Life: The Radio Show

Falcon’s new Christmas show, It’s A Wonderful Life, opens tonight at the Monmouth Theater in Newport.  The entire concept is the 40s– from the moment you step in and throughout the show.  I’m hoping to read a few reviews for the show sometime soon, but […]

Relish, revisited

Relish, revisited

My friend Rose and I had lunch (to talk about her doing a blog, yay!) at Relish this afternoon.  A few things have changed since my last visit, and for the better.  First, I won’t be so cocky as to think that they read the […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Big things happening here at Chez wine me, dine me.  Terry and I are preparing for a big meal involving a lot of people you just might know– you’ll have to stay tuned tomorrow for a big post about it. For now, lots of food […]

Lavomatic, new menu

Lavomatic, new menu

I just had a great meal at Lavomatic. Big group, handled beautifully (though, as David pointed out in the comments, it took a little while to get our checks– something I didn’t notice as I was busy gabbing with 5chw4r7z, Krista, @TommyTShirt, Barry and Kate). […]
