A Magical Dining Night Out

  • 6:36 pm Sunday, September 18th, 2016 by Ann Kelly

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.

 
The beauty of Magical Dining is in the details; a carefully constructed special menu with your choice of an appetizer, entrée and dessert. These are [More]

PDQ & 4Rivers Team Up

  • 7:39 am Friday, September 16th, 2016 by Ann Kelly

It’s not every day that I walk into a PDQ and find pro wrestler Titus O’Neil working the grill. But making a stop at the PDQ on Waters in Tampa for the launch of their special sandwich, the 4 Rivers Smokehouse Sandwich, was a good enough reason, and Titus was on hand to lend a little help. And eat a lot.PDQ and 4 Rivers Smokehouse have created a delicious treat that will benefit the 4R Foundation. What you find on that brioche bun is special; take one of their signature never-frozen, 100 per cent natural chicken breasts [More]

Love That Pumpkin?

  • 4:48 pm Sunday, September 4th, 2016 by Ann Kelly

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]
