Seven Bridges Jacksonville - 20 Aug 2011

Last night I went to Seven Bridges in Jacksonville with some friends. They are a micro-brewery/restaurant. We’ve been there a few times prior to this, and always have great service and great food. Last night I had the Sweet Magnolia Brown Ale. It was a very good beer, slightly nutty, with a bit of chocolate […]

Greek Garden in Orange Park - 31 Jul 2011

About a year ago, a little greek place named Greek Garden opened in Orange Park at Blanding and Kingsley. We went there right after they opened, and the food was sub par. We hadn’t returned since, but then yesterday we couldn’t decide where to stop for lunch and we decided to give it another shot. […]

Microwave Goodness … - 23 Jul 2011

I’m always looking for something quick for lunch, that I can microwave, but that is also healthy. I picked up a Simply Asia Sesame Chicken Rice Noodle bowl, and it was yummy! It was sort of like Ramen noodles, but they use Rice Noodles instead, and they only have 3 grams of fat. The broth […]

Craft Beer joints in Jax - 17 Jul 2011

We went to Brewer’s Pizza on Friday night. They are a little Pizza/Wing/Craft Beer joint in Orange Park. They have been around for a little over a year now, and have about 21 craft beers from around the country on tap. Recently they have started brewing their own beer. We tried several of their creations […]

2011 Jacksonville Beer Fest - 26 Jun 2011

Last night I went to the 2011 Jacksonville Beer Fest with Lori and Leann. Folio weekly started doing this a few years back. We went the first year, and haven’t been able to make it since. They had a ton of different vendors and about 130 beers to sample, including imports. The event seemed to […]

Asbury Pizza – Two thumbs up! - 26 Feb 2009

We tried a new local pizzaria … Asbury Pizza.  Their pizza is New York Style and very good.  We also tried their wings with the house sauce.  These reminded me of Hooters wings… they were lightly breaded with a sweet/sour honey sauce on them.  We will definitely get them again.  The only complaint I have […]

La Nolapolera Fleming Island - 21 Jan 2009

We just returned from dinner at La Nolapolera in Fleming Island.  I was feeling adventurous tonight and decided to try something other than what I usually get ( the Platillo Del Mar … fish and shrimp ). I tried the Pork Carnitas … and I have to say they were fantastic.  I think I’ve found […]

Top of the Reef - 19 Nov 2008

I’ve been meaning to post about this new restaurant, Top of the Reef, we found when my mom was visiting.  It is located in Green Cove Springs on Walnut Street.   It’s a small restaurant, sort of a hole in the wall, with really good food. When we ate there, I had the steamed and raw […]

Savannah - 11 Jan 2008

We went to Savannah last weekend… have never been before. Apparently January is off-season and most of the shops on Tybee Island are closed. That was a bit disappointing. I found that the seafood there was much better than that we’ve been having in Jax lately. The oysters were excellent. All of the old buildings […]

Vacation in Vegas - 06 Oct 2007

Well, we went to Vegas this past week on vacation.  We had originally planned on going to Boston, but couldn’t get Red Sox tickets again, so went back to Vegas instead. We stayed at the Riviera, as a friend from Port Charlotte works there and got us a good deal.  One thing that I was […]
