Another good summer drink, and now I'm impatient for summer: the DARK AND STORMY. Only two ingredients: Black Seal rum from Bermuda, and ginger beer. No substitutes, especially not for the ginger bee ...

This is a serious subject, and deserves a serious response. Well, you won't get one from me. That being said, the seasons of the Windy City demand great care in cocktail selection. In the depth of win ...

The Book of Kells has been mentioned, and yes, it is in Trinity College, but it is one of the most magnificent works I've ever seen. It's about 900 years old, and the book is shown under glass in th ...

All of these places sound like they are on I94. I drove from Seattle to Chicago two years ago with my younger daughter after we bought my son-in-law's Ford Escape for her to use in college. I got al ...

I'm back from the Pacific Northwest. Without a doubt, Wild Ginger is worth a visit! My daughter, son-in-law and I were tempted to order virtually everything on the menu, and very nearly did. We sta ...

I'm going to East Chicago Indiana for Thanksgiving, because it's where my wife's family lives. Incredibly, East Chicago (some think of it as a dreary steel mill town) and Antarctica have a lot in com ...
