Jacksonville Zoo Bursts with Life at Colors of the Wild

Last weekend my sister treated my family and me to an evening at Jacksonville Zoo. My sister currently interns with the behavioral health team at the zoo, and as a reward for her work, the zoo gifted her not only with general admission tickets to the zoo but also with special tickets for the limited-time Colors of the Wild event. This event is so popular, when we arrived we learned the event was sold out, and it was clear to see as we hardly found parking.

A Birthday Weekend

The other weekend, my boyfriend Sam and I went to New York City to visit some friends to celebrate his birthday. We took the train into the city and dropped our bags off at our hotel, Marriott Vacations Club Pulse, and were thankfully able to check in early and get our bearings before our brunch reservation at Bandits in the West Village.

Special Event, Special Venue

Last weekend my husband and I visited one of our favorite local wineries for a special event open exclusively to its wine club members. I've written several times before about how much we enjoy everything about DANCIN Vineyards: its lovely setting, just above its estate vineyards on a forested hillside amid landscaped grounds; its Tuscan-inspired tasting room, patio and terrace; the wonderful food paired with the wines, including wood-fired pizzas and amazing stuffed mushrooms; owners Dan and Cindy Marca and their welcoming, knowledgable staff; and, of course, the wonderful wines, many estate-grown, always elegant, nuanced and delicious. The afternoon event's purpose was to celebrate the winery's 2021 Tribute Barbera, which recently won Best of Class and a Double Gold at the Sunset International Wine Competition (and a score of 98 points). It also provided the opportunity to show off DANCIN's newest venue, the DANCIN Residence.

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
