One of the things that is great when you’re a crew member on a ship is when you stay at a port overnight. This will allow some of the crew to go out to dinner, which is rare on cruises. We had an overnight in Quebec City, which has a lot of restaurants. I walked around town a little early that day, around 3pm, to scout out and ask some local shop owners about there favorite restaurants in town and the most authentic restaurants. I had a few places that were mentioned a couple of times and they were not to far from the ship. I rounded up a couple people and off we went.Continue reading...

For those avid readers this needs little explanation. For the new comers, my wife was born in the UK. This adequately explains her admiration for anything British, particularly bangers.
Her idea to cook a full English breakfast for dinner came immediately after I informed her of my Living Social coupon to Myers of Keswick. $10 got us $20 worth of necessary provisions at the little West Village shop. On a side note, I’m not sure you have to pay full price for anything anymore. Counter clockwise from the top…Continue reading...

I recently have taken another contract and I am currently sailing in New England going from Boston to Montreal. Not the most exciting route when it comes to food but I am sure I will encounter a few surprises. My first surprise and my last port in the U.S. before heading into Nova Scotia was in Bar Harbor. A friend of mine and I were walking around town looking for the best lobster roll in Bar Harbor. In actuality, I don’t think you can get a bad lobster roll in Bar Harbor so it is more about where can I find the best deal….Continue reading...

Starts: 7:00pm (cocktails and appetizers)
Ends: 11pm (really, when the film is over)
Donation: $60 (make a reservation below)
To kick off season three we dug deep into our favorite movie list and pulled out Bill Murray, Chevy Chase and Rodney Dangerfield. Join us as we take a trip back to 1980 where some of us actual made our scratch by carrying rich peoples woods 18 holes over highly landscaped terrain. If you were a caddy or not, you can at least relate to the pesky gofer that seems to turn the whole country club upside down.
You can bet on some Country Club fair for sure. Of course Aimee and I are still scheming on the exact menu but think old standards with a new twist. The club sandwich probably will make an appearance and you better believe we will serve Arnold Palmers all night.
Sorry, we have a full deck. To be reminded about our next dinner, jump on the list.
Jason and Aimee pair a 5 course gourmet meal for 20 friends, some new and some old on a HUGE deck in Brooklyn. As the name implies, we will be screening a movie during the meal. Don’t worry, there will still be plenty of time pre-entree to mingle, catchup and meet some new friends. Once the sun goes down we will role the film in all its two story high glory. This is an experiment, so we are not sure how much silence or chatting will go on. That’s for you to decide. We hope you will come out and enjoy yourselves with us this summer. See you on the deck.
You can check out pics from our last dinner here.
If you can’t make this dinner but want us to send you an invite to the next one, jump on the list.

….. continuing on with the road trip we found ourselves in Savannah Georgia. After dumping our stuff at a hotel we quickly headed down to River Street. River street is one of those rare street in America that allow you to drink alcohol on the streets. We took full advantage of this benefit before our ghost tour and dinner….Continue reading...

I recently took a road trip from South Carolina to Key West Florida with the southerner. The trip should take about 14 hours from start to finish. However, we did break up the trip and spent a couple days in a few places along the way and back….Continue reading...
