Connecticut’s Claim to Culinary Fame: A Taste of New England at The Saybrook Point Inn and Spa

Connecticut’s Claim to Culinary Fame: A Taste of New England at The Saybrook Point Inn and Spa

[ 0 ] March 3, 2015 |

      If Virginia is for lovers then Connecticut is for food aficionados looking for a taste of provincial New England. Connecticut often gets overlooked when compared to international culinary powerhouses like New York City and Boston. But what distinguishes Connecticut from these urban dining centers is the fact that it does not try […]

Silvertone Bar & Grill: Perfecting the Art of Mac & Cheese

[ 0 ] December 2, 2014 |

At first glance, you might not notice that Silvertone Bar & Grill is there, but it’s definitely worth the second look. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, Silvertone is my new favorite hidden gem. The restaurant is located in a basement on Bromfield Street in downtown Boston, close to a couple universities and plenty […]

The Paramount: Tasty Boston Breakfast Spot

The Paramount: Tasty Boston Breakfast Spot

[ 0 ] December 2, 2014 |

Two words: French toast. I had The Paramount’s caramel banana French toast for breakfast a few days ago and I’m still recovering from disappointment. I’m not at all disappointed in the meal, but in the fact that The Paramount has been ten minutes away from my apartment all this time and I never knew it […]

A friend and I made plans to grab a glass of wine after work, so we left the office and headed straight for Boston’s North End. We wandered down a few side streets, stopped into a couple cute boutiques we found along the way, and ended up on Hanover Street. We wanted to try a […]

Finding Beauty and Nostalgia in the Nation’s Oldest Park

Boston Common (easily accessible via the Red Line on the train – get off at Park Street) has been the most memorable and iconic place for me in Boston ever since I can remember.  The Common’s “Frog Pond” ice skating rink was where I spent my first hours lying on the ice, watching my other hockey-playing friends skate […]

Behind the Boston Hard Gaze: Are There Kind Eyes?

Behind the Boston Hard Gaze: Are There Kind Eyes?

[ 2 ] January 6, 2014 |

Bostonians have a reputation of being unfriendly to outsiders, and as an adopted Bostonian, I can’t deny it. They are. But this attitude sort of makes sense, even if it is unjustified. (Stay with me here). For hundreds of years, Boston has been home to the best universities, exclusive social clubs and some of the […]

The Boston Tea Party of 2013

December 18, 2013 |

Because I really only think about it during the Fourth of July, I tend to associate the Boston Tea Party with summertime. On a frozen Monday night in the middle of December, with the dedicated efforts of many volunteers, I realized how mistaken I had been. The Old South Meeting House sits near the heart […]

Back Bay Boston is really a town (ssh!), but proudly carries itself like a big city, especially in the Back Bay, one of its most affluent and swanky neighborhoods. The renovated, still pristine nineteenth century Victorian brownstones that line Newbury Street make shopping its high-end stores like Chanel and Valentino feel intimate and cozy (kind […]

There are tons of annual events to check out in Boston and its surrounding areas, including everything from parades of Irish people (and the rest pretending) to film festivals and live music.  It’s a place where you can grab a calendar, pick a week, and you’ll be likely to find something exciting going on, regardless […]

New England Autumns Are Illuminated at Nashoba Valley Winery

New England Autumns Are Illuminated at Nashoba Valley Winery

[ 0 ] November 12, 2013 |

Growing up in Denver, I used to dream about New England autumn. Back in the Mile High, the trees turn colors, as all seasonal plants do, but nothing holds a candle to the brilliance that is New England in the fall. Recently, I found myself engulfed with this wonderful scenery when I visited the Nashoba […]
