Carry On (Travel News) for June 22

Misadventures-with-Andi-Carry-OnYesterday I started a food news series called Amuse-Bouche.  Today I am launching a similar series focused on travel news. Small bits of news, just enough in size to fit comfortably in a carry on…

El San Juan Resort & Casino (a Hilton Hotel) in San Juan Puerto Rico announced their second annual Veuve Clicquot Labor Day Experience. Who doesn’t love a champagne inspired holiday celebration? They have a 3-night resort package featuring a Champagne Pairing Dinner, Daily Champagne Breakfast, Live Music, Renowned DJs, Pool Parties and more.

People voted San Francisco the coolest city in the U.S. according to …I have to say, I concur!


Mint on the pillow? So passé. At the Caldwell House Bed and Breakfast in Salisbury Mills, New York, their putting miniature pies on top of your pillow! Not just any pie – this fall, the innkeeper (a culinary chef with a cookbook coming out) has got a schedule to keep – a seasonal schedule! That’s different!
