Time Please Guv'nor

As a Brit I'm very fond of a good pint of Beer from time to time. But Beer drinking has always been seen as a very old fashioned thing to drink and be around, (Well in the UK that is anyway) as well as the vision of grotty old men's pubs to drink it in too.

At Last a venue to be proud of to drink your beloved pint in which is set in edgy East London.

Amsterdam Dining

After about 20 trips to Amsterdam, Constantina and I finally managed to have something other than a hot dog at the airport for dinner. We enjoyed our meal at Mazzo as much as we enjoyed the design of the restaurant: simple, quirky and undeniably Dutch!

Great Website To Find Images :) allows you to set up your own boards and ''pin'' images that inspire you, or simply save into your own image bank. set up into categories the website lets you search/see other people's ''pins,'' that could hopefully be useful for your projects whether it’s an original piece of furniture or the mood itself.

NYC Dining

I wanted to continue on from Gale's last post on New York as I know for many people the City has some of the most amazing places to Eat, Drink and be merry:)

When I visited NY late last year I dined at my hotels Restaurant The Breslin Which I later found out was the name of the old Hotel that used to be there.

I could describe in some way that this venue had a touch of the British about it which works very well as a dining space - I would recommend the Pumpkin pancakes with spiced butter and pecans & the thrice cooked chips are something Else.

Daydreaming about an upcoming trip to Rome made me look through some photos taken in Italy a year ago:
