  1. I'm coming to Florida in November for the nascar race in Homestead. We are flying into Ft. Lauderdale and driving to South Beach. I'm travelling with a bunch of boys, most of who are basic meat and potates kinda guys but I am looking for a bit more (I'm pretty much open to anything but Indian)...so here's what I'm hoping you can help me with... I'm looking for a few bars/restaurants with tasty pub fare, not too expensive...we like dives too (as long as the food is delicious) & if you know of a great place for bbq or italian that would be a plus too. Also, I'm probably going to kidnap my bo
  2. Yeah I'm ALL about checking out the redwoods, that's why we were planning on staying in Crescent City and Eureka so that we could have lots of time to explore!
  3. Washington is still under discussion. I really wanted to go up to Port Townsend and that area, but I don't know if we'll have time. See, the way this trip started was that we wanted to hit all the cities, so we decided to do this big road trip. Then when I started researching I found all these incredible places to stop along the way. This is how our trip looks right now: Seattle (3 nights) From Seattle we are going to drive out to Astoria for lunch (and then I was considering going to Tillamook) and then to Portland that night (I'm still investigating routes). Spend 2-3 days in Portland a
  4. Hello! I am an East Coaster and this spring my best friend and I are flying to Seattle, renting a car and driving all the way down to San Diego (detouring to Portland too). Anyhoo, I'm not too worried about the cities (Seattle, Portland, San Fran, L.A., San Diego) I can search through threads for that stuff, (although if you have a favorite, I'll take recommendations). What I'm more interested in is not to miss places along the way along the coast. We are not doing too much of the Washington Coast (time constraints), but we are doing Oregon and then of course the long drive through CA.
  5. My two favorites are: Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Pigalle
  6. I went to New Orleans in March and I still remember the taste of that duck. Oh my goodness it was delicious! Ohhh and the bread pudding tooo!
  7. Thanks! That hurricane kit sounds like a great idea! She is 28. Oh, and she has a cat! I think she is going to try to find an animal shelter to volunteer at too! Thanks again!
  8. Hello! One of my best friends is moving next week to Clearwater. I wanted to use my internet resources to make her a little guide to the area..and I was hoping you could help me out. I'm looking for food suggestions (she is a basic kind of girl, so American style or Italian (especially pizza). Nightlife recommendations would also be super! Thanks for your help! kt
  9. I went to NO in March and had a fantastic meal & experience at Jacques Imo's. Was THRILLED to see that one opened in NYC. I went about a month ago with a few friends. My friends thoroughly enjoyed their food, but for me, I was a little disappointed. I ordered the BBQ Shrimp (the same thing i had in NO) and it was way too buttery. Like overwhelmingly buttery. Also a big part of what I loved about Jacques in NO was the ambiance. The hustle and bustle and that was definitely lost. Overall it was a nice time, I think that someone who had never been to NO would enjoy it, for those tha
  10. Thanks!! The place my boyfriend went to in Atlanta had cards. Green card for more meat, red for no more!!! LOL I'll be sure to come back with info afer we go!!
  11. Hello! My boyfriend just got back from a trip to Atlanta. While he was there he went to dinner at this amazing restaurant where they brought out huge skewers of meat and sliced some off for you right at your table. He said there were all different kinds of meat, it was all you can eat and I think he said he thought it was a Brazilian restaurant. I told my friend about it, and she swears there is a place like that in Perth Amboy...Does anyone know if there is? If not Perth Amboy, anywhere in the area?
  12. Really? Wow. That is pretty interesting. I guess I'll check my local supermarket, I thought it would be harder than that.
  13. I went out to Soho in New Brunswick the other night and had the most delicous ostrich!! I was wondering where I could buy some to make for myself at home...My first thought was Wegmans does anyone know if they carry it...And if not, where I can get some so I can chef it up at home!!! Thanks!!
  14. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for their suggestions. We decided on Pigalle and had a wonderful (and very romantic) meal. It was a few weeks back so please forgive the lack of specifics. My boyfriend started with french onion soup, I had a special monkfish appetizer (it was lightly breaded and came with a red pepper coulis). YUM!! For dinner my boyfriend has the duck (which i couldn't stop tasting!) and I had the scallops. Everything was wonderful! Thanks so much for the help!
