Weekend Reads: 01.10.14

El Molino

We were pleased to see a few of our favorite restaurants and food professionals featured on this year’s Find. Eat. Drink. Fifty. Maine’s own Piccolo was selected by Portland Hunt & Alpine Club owner, Andrew Volk and two of our favorite Durham restaurants, Mateo Tapas & Nanataco, are listed as well. Memorable restaurants from 2013 trips, El Molino Central (pictured above) in Sononma and Peche in New Orleans also made the cut. You can bet we’ll be consulting this list for future outings in the coming year, the Find. Eat. Drink. app is already one of our go-to apps while planning our trips.

Our friend, Graham, shared photos of his recent family vacation to Bald Head Island, located off the southern coast of North Carolina. BHI is an incredibly special place to Michael and I – a place we visited together often when we were living in Chapel Hill. Graham’s images perfectly convey the beauty of the island, even in winter.

We finalized some of the details for next month’s trip to Charleston and began mapping out the restaurants we’re hoping to try in three days. Our list is rather long (go figure) but I found this particular Charleston city guide from Helen Rice on Ann Street Studio to be pleasantly helpful. And just yesterday Ann Street Studio posted photos from the hotel where we’re staying, Zero George. Excited doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about this getaway.

I was happy to see the folks at New England Outwear Co. featured on Tomboy Style this week. I had the chance to speak with them at the American Field Pop-Up in Boston this year and was quite impressed with their craftsmanship.

You’ll find the Mr. C Hotel in Beverly Hills on our rotating list of ‘hopeful reservations’ in the sidebar, thanks to this post from dustjacket attic, featuring the photographs of one of my favorite interior photographers, Patrick Cline.
