Local South Florida Musician Spotlight: Ominé Eager

It is rare in this modern world of auto-tune and manufactured pop divas to find raw musical talent in the mainstream. Most of what we hear on the radio is audibly "photo shopped", so-to-speak, and seemingly nothing comes from the heart. Despite the lack of quality in what we consider "popular" tunes, there is still… Continue reading Local South Florida Musician Spotlight: Ominé Eager

Chima Steakhouse: Tysons Corner Delight

Despite living in the DC-metro area for three years now, it was not until Wednesday night of this week that I discovered one of Northern Virginia's most delicious dining experiences.

Capitol Vineyards, Far from Capitol Hill

Virginia never ceases to amaze me with its rich history and climate potential for the winemaking business.  Though it is the oldest wine-producing state in the country, Virginia is very new when it comes to mass-producing and marketing wines made in the area.

Hello Spring! What do we do in the mid-Atlantic when the weather is divine? We drink wine! As I've mentioned in some of my previous posts, Virginia… Continue reading Virginia Wine in Spring Time

March Madness

If March were a person, she would be diagnosed with schizophrenia. I woke up this morning in Arlington County, Virginia to snow on the ground. Legitimate snow! We haven't had snow all winter… Continue reading March Madness

Best Three-Buck Chuck

Wine-I have neglected you. Well, not in real life, but only on my blog. I feel that my digressions of the past few weeks have made me stray from writing about one of the title topics of History and Wine: Wine. Now, don't get me wrong. I think that the topics of the last few… Continue reading Best Three-Buck Chuck
