Yes, I am on vacation! And to make sure I started that oh so valuable time off on the right note it was off to Orlando for Magical Dining at Urban Tide, inside the Hyatt Regency Orlando. Of course it was just my luck for a fairly nice day to turn into a dark and stormy night but I think it made Urban Tide feel that much more intimate, even for this solo diner.

If you love all things pumpkin, you love this time of year. If you don’t, see you in the spring! Just kidding but I’m pretty sure I sent the barista at Starbucks into a state of shock when I didn’t get overly excited about the Pumpkin Spice Latte being back. Just not in the mood, it was nothing personal. So yes, Starbucks has launched their fall favorite and even kicked that up a notch with their Chili Mocha and the Toasted Graham Latte.
Then there’s Dunkin Donuts and their Pumpkin Muffin, and here’s the newest. How about [More]
