Poetic soul of the port at the heart of Adriatic
I walk through Trieste's old red-light district, where, in Joyce's day, up to 400 prostitutes would offer round-the-clock services. Apparently, it partially inspired the seedy Nighttown of Ulysses, but it's Another enduring pit stop is the ...

Review: Love Bug's has lots of doughnuts
It is immaculate, with booths and tables clothed in black or red, a charming mural of cartoon love bugs on the wall and a colorful little nook with an Elmo-themed table for children. "Friendly" probably underestimates the atmosphere; these are nice people....

Second Helpings: El Guapo's Cantina, Nordaggio's reviews

Travel is full of surprises, and the seasoned traveler is always open to a ‘Plan B’. Even after the workout of wandering the streets of Padua all morning, the satisfying breakfast at the hotel in Venice still makes the case for a late lunch. So it’s back to the autostrada and on toward Bologna in search of a lunchtime ‘Plan B’. Fortunately, the city of Ferrara sits just off the autostrada between Padua and Bologna, and the impulse for an unscheduled stop proves irresistible. The best way to see Ferrara is to park at the edge of town and walk or cycle in. Not surprisingly, Ferrara is known as the ‘City Of Bicycles’… no small achievement in a country where bicycles often outnumber motor vehicles on historic streets. Whether you walk or cycle Ferrara, it’s a place where you’ll not have to vie with motor traffic. Ferrara’s Corpus Domini Monastery is the tomb not only of local notables, but also of Renaissance-era princess and femme fatale Lucrezia Borgia, whose third and last husband was the Duke of Ferrara. The Ferrara Synagogue and Jewish Museum is located in the former Jewish Quarter, which was maintained as a ghetto for over 300 years, until the unification of Italy in 1859.
I love this headline: “Mother, 29, who ran through hotel naked ‘after her friend stole her pants’ is slapped with an obscenity charge. If your husband ever invites you to join him on a business trip, be sure to ask him these questions:. Will you ever get to see him while he is not — technically — asleep. What will he do, if you accidentally lock yourself out of your hotel room in the middle of the night while you are not — technically — dressed. Unfortunately, I didn’t think to ask these questions when my husband Mark invited me to join him for a six-week Boston business trip. Whether I could pack my cappuccino machine. Whether we’d have reliable net access in our room. Okay, I admit it: I’m a little — okay a lot — hooked on cappuccino and the on-line life. Anyway, Mark managed to convince me that working out of a hotel room in a strange city would inspire new, creative ideas. He also swore that Boston is a modern city with lots of cappuccino and Internet connections. We checked in late that first night, and the accommodations (paid for by Mark’s client) were luxurious. But I gave no thought to our lovely hotel, the sites and sounds of Boston, or the excitement of living in a new city.
I took a group cooking class in Florence when I was traveling around Italy in March of 2013. The class consisted of a mother-daughter duo, a chef from Long Island, and myself. We were all discussing the places in Italy we visited (or in my case, about to visit), and they were all raving about Pompeii. The chef commented, “It was absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately you have to go through Napoli. Any person who tells you that Napoli is not worth a visit either has is either a non-foodie, a vanilla tourist, a total moron, or all of the above. Napoli is fantastica. Skipping Napoli on a trip to Italy is like coming to San Francisco and bypassing the Mission District. In searching for a race to run during marathon training, I was only too happy to sign up for La Mezza Maratona di Napoli (the Napoli Half Marathon) and an excuse to visit the city yet a third time. But regardless of the outcome, I was going to Napoli, and therefore I was guaranteed at least a great meal or two. The first is Attanasio, a bakery near the train station well known for its sfogliatelle , a flaky ricotta-filled pastry. The queue was long, but well worth it. These little babies are filled with rich ricotta and orange peel, sprinkled with powdered sugar.

Wine Suggestions For a Hoppy Easter
The aromas are intense espresso, mocha, smoke, dark cherry. The palate is a full-on coffee experience. Long mocha finish. Enjoy this with your solid chocolate bunny as dessert or...on it's own before brunch. After all, it's 12 O'clock somewhere.
