After reading an article on Yahoo! yesterday about Wendy’s making changes to it’s burger, I decided to give it a try. My prior visit to a Wendy’s wasn’t a pleasant experience. It was about 7 months ago at their downtown San Diego location. The burgers were small and didn’t taste fresh. Overall, it was a bad experience. That was not the case yesterday… Continue reading

I enjoy a nice glass of beer, wine, or scotch every once in a while. The drink of choice depends upon what I am doing at that particular moment. I enjoy a glass of beer when I’m watching a game at the ballpark, at a BBQ, or while I’m waiting for my plane at the airport (which I am doing right now by the way). Some of my favorite beers are:
When I go out with my wife, I enjoy a glass of wine, or two, or three. Yes, I enjoy wine. Red wine is my wine of choice. There’s nothing like a Cabernet with strong flavors of pepper or berry with a nice meal. Zinfandel and Syrah are a close 2nd and 3rd in my book. I will drink red wine no matter what I eat. I know some people will say that is sacrilege, but it is a preference of mine. I am by no means a connoisseur, and I don’t believe in spending a lot of money on wine. Some of my favorites are:
Now, when I’m having a drink with my boss, who happens to be a Scotch connoisseur, I will have a glass or two. I have learned to appreciate this spirit. When I was younger, I tried the blended scotch and it didn’t sit well with me. However, after my boss introduced me to Single Malt Scotch, I changed my tune and now I enjoy a nice single malt from time to time. The flavors of butterscotch and peat over just a little bit of ice is tasty. This is a drink that I can’t have too often as it is not an every day drink for me. The only blended scotch whiskey I can drink is Chivas Regal. Some of my favorites are:
Other spirits I enjoy from time to time are Tequila, Vodka, and Irish Whiskey….but I’ll save that for another post. What is your drink of choice? If you don’t drink alcohol, what do you like to drink? Please join the conversation, I would love to hear from you.
Last week, I had a friend, Scott, visit from Chicago. I hadn’t seen him in 8 years and he wanted to go out to a nice restaurant with my wife and I. Since it had been over 8 years since he was in Vegas, I decided to make reservations at Mix, which is located on the 64th floor of THE hotel @ Mandalay Bay. Mix is known around town as a chic, high end restaurant. Continue reading
