Summer Travels: Fire Island and Rocket Fuels

Rocket Fuel. Have you heard of this? On her first visit to Fire Island, A-Tooch was introduced to the party town itself and its very potent, resident drink. Behold: half piƱa colada, half mystery booze. Guaranteed good time or your money back. Actually, it should come with a refund since most places on the island […]

Wow. That is a bold statement, eh? During a weekend trip to Florida earlier this year, A-Tooch rekindled her love with the best dessert she has ever tasted.

Graffiato – Washington, DC

After the big Syracuse win, BF and I went searching for a celebratory dinner in the barren wasteland known as the area near the Verizon Center in DC. Enter: Top Chef contestant Mike Isabella’s Graffiato. Two […]

Roscoe Diner and the Happy Waitress

If you have ever traveled on Rt. 17 through upstate NY, you are well aware that it is the most barren, depressing road trip you can make. Until you hit the Roscoe Diner. On a recent trip I got my usual Happy Waitress — grilled cheese with bacon and tomatoes. Duh. Diner classic. This place […]

The trip was amazing, weather was perfect and, of course, the boat came with a private chef who cooked three delicious meals a day. Why would you travel any other […]

It’s not exactly Paris or London…ok, it’s not even Los Angeles or Chicago…but much to the surprise of A-Tooch, Arizona has some amazing culinary offerings.

Ski-cation 2012

You may remember the ski trip-turned-food fest that A-Tooch and friends took last year. This year we went to the Poconos, upgraded to a house with a hot tub and ate even more food…if that is humanly possible. I have a group of serious foodie friends so we kick the emails off a few weeks […]
