The first frost warning of the season is upon us. At the farm, that means it’s time to put down the gin and tonics and move toward something more seasonally appropriate. Last night, we lit a fire and toasted Friday […]


Cocktails at Lantern’s Keep

A wonderful pre-theater discovery thanks to my friend and colleague Karen: Lantern’s Keep, an honest-to-goodness cocktail bar right in the heart of midtown. Greg and I hit it up the evening we saw On the Town. It’s a super-cool place with […]

Sunday Evening Sips and Snacks

The spring weather has arrived — at least temporarily. And so there I was, pruning the blueberries in the front with Sam in her newest neglect-a-tron — — and Tasha pops her head out the door. Feel like a cocktail? […]


Sips and Snacks at Vandaag

We had a date with Team America. The movie. And the best part? It was a sing-along. Those of you who know the words to some of the songs in that movie probably understand: that’s bound to be a lot […]


Cocktails at Clio

Our apartment in the Back Bay was right around the corner from Clio, Ken Oringer’s temple of fine dining and his signature restaurant. We weren’t able to get in a meal, but we did stop for a couple of excellent […]
