Las Canarias Spanish Paella and Tapas Bar

I've been meaning to try Las Canarias ever since I saw Gwendolyn Richard's Instagram post (March 15, 2017). I knew it would take 40 minutes for the paella to cook, so I called the restaurant 20 minutes before we arrived to get the dish started. For this post, let's listen to Siempre Me Quedara by Bebe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-HKvYDTpoc… Continue reading Las Canarias Spanish Paella and Tapas Bar

My colleague Jo picked Murieta’s for her birthday lunch. For this post, let’s play something I listen to on the way to work to pump myself up for the day - Money, Money, Money by Abba. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETxmCCsMoD0 The restaurant is beautiful.

Charbar – Rooftop Patio

It was my colleague's Ayyecarama birthday on Wednesday. I wanted to book a table on a patio in the downtown core. My first choice was Charbar but I thought that there was no way I could get a table for eight. I called National and the hostess was rude and unhelpful. I contacted Cactus Club and… Continue reading Charbar – Rooftop Patio
