Last year we had a great experience at R 'evolution and Commanders. You could call them tourist traps but the food and service was well worth it. The wine list at commanders is very good and well priced; we had a bottle of SNQ for a very reasonable price.

Oysters at dragos (I prefer Mateirie location) are killer. Favorite neighborhood bistros upperline, dick and Jenny's,
Fat hen for breakfast

Emerils brought all the burgundies they had here in south beach; last time I was there 2 or 3 years ago the somm pulled out some amazing stuff.

We got less than an hour in Bellagio because we got a late start then spent so much time at Villa del Balbianello but in any case, after 8 years living in Asia my wife feels we have the whole silk scarf thing covered! And we were not able to get Last Supper tickets without shelling out $100 each for the privilege - next time! But thanks for the tips!

My condolences...


Indeed. An interesting cross section of the country waddling around.


You do disney or were you there for work?


Work.
I've never been to Disney, but we are strongly considering taking the kids (6 and 4) around Christmas time this year.

Details please!!! They were working on it when we were there last and it was nice to see that shitty restaurant that had been there finally close. Stef is good friends with Rhonda next door at the Loom Works.

If you go in there and look at the photo books, Stef did those for Rhonda. I spend a lot of time at Sylvain across the street because I can only take so much talk about cats and carpets Smile

I will relate as much as my fuzzy memory lets me. Wink

When you walk in there is room with a glass wall that shows all their meats aging. Its pretty cool. One of my friends is the bar manager there so we ate at the bar, not a table. Sweetbread appetizer was very good. My sister and I had the filet. Both were excellent. Good meat and well prepared. My cousin had the short rib. I think I liked it more than my steak. Truffle fries were great, nice and crispy. From what I recall, the wine list was a bit pricey and there werent many cheap options. I could be wrong on this because I only glanced at it and I had a pretty good buzz going. I was letting my friend make me whatever he wanted cocktail wise. Good vibe and good, friendly service. Fairly pricey though.

How is it? What are your favorite beaches for snorkeling or just laying down? I'll be there in August.


I'll give you a full report after we return 7/6

Shoot me an email at pespos7508 at aol dot com so I have your email. We went golfing yesterday it was spectacular.
Just finished my second (and final) argument today with Lufthansa reps at YVR. They've changed our seats 3 times for reasons no one can provide, on a flight we booked back in January with seat selection at that time. I've never liked flying this airline, and this has a been a good reminder of why. Harumph!

In any event, barring problems they'll get me to Paris at the time I need to be there.

Wait - you mean there's life in Oakville after all?? Devilish I'd love to meet up for an Oakville offline. Give us a week or so to get settled and we'll figure something out. Thanks for the welcome.

Well, my life is mostly in Ottawa, but my job is in Oakville for the foreseeable future! So let's bring a little more life to Oakville via an offline. Who knows, maybe some of the TO crowd would even venture a whole 40 minutes west and join us! Cool
