Wolf Trap for Great Summer Music

Wolf Trap for Great Summer Music
With summer just around the corner, it’s time to select upcoming plays, music and dance performances at Wolf Trap just outside of Washington DC. As usual, the schedule includes everything from the National Symphony Orchestra to Harry Connick, Jr. and Jackson Browne. My favorite location to see and hear a show is sitting on the lawn relaxing on a blanket with a picnic and a nice bottle of wine.  But some people prefer to avoid the need to arrive early, and the infamous rush to secure a blanket...

Sophisticated Summer Sweet Treats at Gelato Messina

Sophisticated Summer Sweet Treats at Gelato Messina
Ice-cream may always be a summer staple, but gelato is steadily gaining ground. And why not? It’s a little kinder on the hips with less than 12% fat, but with so many delicious flavours available it still feels decadent. If you take your gelato seriously, you need to make a visit to Gelato Messina. There are more than 40 flavours made fresh each day, so it can be pretty difficult to choose. Chocolate fondant and pistachio praline are fairly traditional options, but I’m most intrigued by the gourmet...

Amsterdam in Summer

What do Amsterdammer do in summer? They sit on their door step and read a book. They meet up with friends and drink Heineken at one of the many outdoor cafes. Many laze away the day in one of the city parks or urban beaches. More active Amsterdammers jump on their bikes and sprint to Zandvoort beach, or go by train if they are less energetic. Why not join them? Head for one of the city parks because you don’t have your own doorstep. A long bike ride to the sea doesn’t sound all that attractive...

Summer is Family Bonding Time

When I was a child, summer meant bonding time with grandparents, cousins, and other relatives we didn’t often see. Most years, my siblings and I would stay for a month at my maternal grandparents’ home in Bataan. A couple of times, we saw our paternal grandparents, who came to visit us when we couldn’t go to Negros to see them. Those summer weeks were the times when we forged friendships with our cousins, relationships which thrive until now. Relationships which I hope my kids will have when...

Musings: Summer Escapes

To me, the Fourth of July is the real beginning of summer, and despite the festivities that sprout up throughout the valley, it is also a time to get away from the intense summer heat.  We just bopped up to the mountains, to Lake Arrowhead in the San Bernadino Mountains of California, where temperatures were 20 degrees cooler and the water clear blue. One doesn’t have to drive three hours, however, to escape the summer heat.  Lake Mead National Recreation Area is 35 minutes from the Strip. ...

West Hollywood’s Views from the Pool Deck

It’s summer (despite the May gray and possible June gloom), and what better place to laze away the days or ogle the nighttime skies than from a pool deck in the heart of happening West Hollywood? Even if it’s too overcast to check out the Hollywood Hills and city views, it’s never too hazy in this city to see and be seen on a roof in the sexiest ‘hood in Tinseltown. Cabanas, movie stars in their bathers, the good life… Photo credit: Whatsername?@flickr Andaz West Hollywood:...

National Moment of Remembrance on Memorial Day

While Memorial Day may mean the start of summer for many, it’s evolution and celebration is deeply rooted in our history and the fabric of our country.  After the end of the Civil War, the tradition began of honoring soldier who had been killed in battle, and a special day was set aside for remembrance.  It was originally called Decoration Day. Since then, it has evolved into a Federal Holiday, observed the last Monday in May, and honors those who died while in service to their country. Please...
