A couple months ago, my husband, Alex, was drumming with a talented vocalist and guitar player, Johanna Chase. So when CBS assigned me a story on the top female musicians in LA, she immediately came to my mind. Then her PR rep saw the article and contacted me regarding an upcoming benefit show she is participating in. The more I learned about it, the more I fell in love with this amazing event – Beatles on Ukulele: The 50 Greatest Hits, a J/P HRO Benefit.

Having just moved from the East Coast to the West Coast about 2 weeks ago, I was devastated by the recent happenings of Hurricane Sandy back home. I am grateful my family and friends are safe, but my heart goes out to all those affected in CT, NY, and NJ especially. As a Hartford Restaurant examiner, I wrote a recent post regarding dining establishments in the state, post-Sandy, which can be seen here.
Originally wrote this piece as suggestions of affordable kid-friendly restaurants during the summer months. Now that school’s back in session, families are busier than ever. Parents are juggling careers, car rides, sports practices, play dates, homework, and more. With all the go-go-go going on, sometimes there just isn’t enough time (or energy) to cook for the family. These kid-friendly restaurants remain a great option for families this fall!
My husband is a man of many talents, be it behind a camera, on a sports field, manning the grill, or sitting at a drum kit. As a drummer, he’s played at some pretty cool venues, like Mohegan Sun and the Capitol Theater. But my personal favorite places we’ve gone for him to play have been the chill, laid back joints with decent food (I can’t help it, I love stuffing my face), where we can just relax and have a good time. Here are some of the places I’ve had the most fun listening to live music while enjoying something tasty.
