With father’s day around the corner you may be asking yourself what to get the man who has everything?  While I would love nothing more than to buy my dad a fancy new sports car or mega yacht, the limits of my budget leave me searching for fresh ideas.   I think the gift of a father’s […]

Summertime and ice cream, ice cream and summertime, for me the two are synonymous.   I literally just can’t get enough of the sweet, creamy, cold treat when the temperature rises.  It seems as though the latest trend to hit the ice cream circuit has been the rising popularity of ice cream shops carrying a tart […]

It is the best time of year for fresh fruits and vegetables and there is no better place to purchase them than your local farmer’s market!  I love to shop outside and support local business.  The produce is usually better than purchasing in grocery stores, as well as more affordable.  Bring along your reusable shopping […]

The Fojol Bros. of Merlindia are bringing a new style of dining to the Washington, DC area. They serve delicious food while playing a variety of music from their family truck. This truck is adding a great diverse option for those looking for something new to try during the day. You can only eat at the local deli or restaurant next door so many times before wishing something new was in the neighborhood. No worries! The Fojol Bros. have got you covered!

Last week Pier Six Pavilion kicked off their summer concert season with a “Rock the Docks” party featuring Ben Harper and the Relentless 7. While I did not purchase a ticket for the event I took the opportunity to walk over to Pier “Seven” to check out the show. Great minds think alike as a swarm of people lined the docks across from the Pavilion. While I have been to concerts at Pier Six, and intend to go to a few this summer – I was happy to just sit along the docks and listen for free! This summer’s lineup is especially impressive. Here are just a few of the concerts coming this summer:

Growing up, when my parents said we were going out to eat, I knew exactly what to expect: where we were going, where we were going to sit, who was going to serve us, and what we were all going to order. My parents are creatures of habit who had been dining out at this same establishment since before I was even in the picture, and they felt no need to stray from the tried and true. As an adult, it is not surprising to me that I have my own sort of affinity to the familiar. My restaurant is Regi’s American Bistro on Light Street in Federal Hill. Whenever I have an occasion to celebrate: out-of-town guests, a hankering for a meal out, and yes, even when my parents visit, I find myself relying on the friendly and welcoming neighborhood atmosphere that seems to suit every dining situation.
