One of the things I’ve never done during my time in New York is take in a show at Jazz at Lincoln Center. I know, it’s blasphemous! Luckily, I recently had the opportunity to not only take in a show, but also a great dinner while I watched. Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola is one of the best jazz club’s in […]

A Winter Weekend Getaway to Lake Placid

My ideal vacation is hopping on a plane and getting somewhere warm. Tropical, desert, beach, lake, whatever it may be, it’s gotta be hot. Especially if you’re planning on a winter getaway, heading some place where you don’t have to bundle up is certainly appealing. But I always like to get a little bit out of my comfort zone and […]
