MainSail: Newport Marriott-A Review

Drunken Mussels, Crusted Scallops, Blackened Shrimp…need I say more? Normally I am not partial to food from hotels. I find hotel food to be bland and not good. And I am not just talking about breakfast. I am talking about lunch and dinner as well. But the dinner at MainSail at the Newport Marriott was…

Portugal: A Cost Breakdown

If you haven’t already heard, I am getting married. That’s right. Me. My head is spinning with things such as honeymoon planning, wedding details, cost. So much stress. How are we going to afford all this. I know the kind of wedding I would like to have, but chances are that we will not be…

The Mooring: A Review

The Mooring is one of my favorite restaurants in the whole of Newport. Lovely views of the harbor, excellent food, and amazing wait staff. It truly does not get any better. They may have 4 out of 5 stars on Yelp, but they have 5 stars in my book. I have been a regular at the…

Portugal? –All Set

Have I mentioned that I am going to Portugal in September, over the Labor Day Holiday. Yes. And, in fact, did I mention that I am trying to touch down on all six of the major continents before my 30th birthday. That’s a pretty challenging and difficult task. I am, however, going to try. After…

Instagrammable Newport, RI

Views of the Newport bridge from Jamestown, RI. Peaceful, tranquil and relaxing. 2) Newport Vineyards. Newport Vineyards is one of my favorite stops every time I go to Rhode Island. The wines are delicious and the view is spectacular. There is nothing I love more than a gorgeous view. The only down side to this…

On the Border: We go Mexican

So, I do have to be honest. I am not a huge Mexican Food person. As a foodie, it truly does not do a whole lot for me. I do not see many health benefits to it, and it does not wet my appetite quite like other dishes and cuisines from other countries. Maybe I…
