National Shortbread Day arrives on January 6th. Were you aware there was an actual National Shortbread Day? I know I wasn't, and I'm a big fan of shortbread. I have grown up on Walkers Shortbread. Now, with my kids, I've got tins filled with crayons, markers, and colored pencils, because you never throw out a Walkers [...]

All around Rochester exploring the world of play, art and George Eastman, is one of my favorite experiences since starting my travel writing. Don't get me wrong, San Diego, and New York City, are my favorite cities for obvious reasons. However, Rochester has become a place I never expected to fall so deeply in love with. [...]

Eating my way through beautiful Rochester in Western New York didn't cover nearly enough food, so I plan on heading back in 2017! I got a tease of a taste, a little amuse bouche, if you will. Next trip up, I'm hitting the BBQ places, but this time definitely wet my whistle for a lot [...]

By | 2016-12-07T09:56:06-05:00 December 21, 2016|Featured, Reviews|Comments Off on Wii U Skylanders Imaginators gets two thumbs up from The Boy

Wii U Skylanders Imaginators gets two thumbs up from The Boy. The issue I have with it? I don't understand anything about it, and The Boy's addiction to this Skylanders franchise is freakishly strong. As much as I try, and try, and tryyyyy, I just don't get the fascination. I pressed The Boy for what [...]

Minecraft Xbox One S console is available at Best Buy. I've heard many parents saying their kids put it on the old Christmas list, because, you know, Minecraft <insert exasperated sarcastic tone here>. Seriously, it's all my son thinks about. However, it could be worse. As far as I can tell, Minecraft is a decent game. [...]

The Strathallan Rochester is located in the heart of Rochester's cultural and historic districts, and since it's a DoubleTree by Hilton property, you get a warm cookie when you check-in. Sweet! Especially after realizing everything at the hotel closes up rather early on a Thursday night, and I've just landed at Greater Rochester International Airport. JetBlue [...]

Brilliant with a side of personality doesn't even cover Ward Stare. His talent is extraordinary, and the fact that he's from my home state of New York, brings a sense of pride. I'd have never known of him, or his talents, if not for my daughter's desire to play Viola for her school's orchestra. Go [...]
