I worked as an investigative reporter, news anchor and even executive producer and host of my own talk show. I was also a finalist in the search for a co-host with Regis Philbin appearing on the show twice when Kathie Lee left (and yes, he’s very nice). I’ve worked with some incredible people. We changed lives… even changed state laws.
Fate has always been my biggest ally. It was fate that got me in the news business, and I believe fate is responsible for bringing my passion for wine, food and travel to fruition. After 17 years at the same television news station, I am venturing off in a new and exciting direction. Now, this fabulous world… what I describe as the ‘real’ world outside the news bubble has unfolded. So c’mon—let’s continue to journey — together we’ll have a great time and discover some great wines and fun people along the way.
If you have a story idea, question about wine, restaurants or something else, please email me and tell me about it.
Hooray for a holiday weekend! Sometimes it takes a long weekend to get us locals to get downtown. Folks travel from all over the world to visit our beautiful RiverWalk so why should we enjoy it too.
Boudro’s is probably the most popular restaurant on the river with both tourists and locals alike. Their famous prickly pear margarita is perfect this time of year along with a heaping order of their famous tableside guacamole.
The Fig Tree in the evening is also lovely with its view of the Arnesan River Theater and its large shady patio. And Paesanos fans, you can still get your fill of their famous Shrimp Paesano on the Riverwalk too.
If you’re staying in, I’ve got all kinds of cold drink ideas and great grilling recipes at Goodtaste.tv.
