St. John’s resident wine expert Paul Tsakeres has opened the doors at his new Island Cork location at Wharfside Village.
Paul got permits and all that other last-minute business work out of the way and had an unofficial opening late last week.
We’ll give Paul and the store a couple of days for the dust to settle and everything in its place before we give you a better look, but put the new Island Cork on your list. You can’t beat the location.
Airlines are trying. Really they are, with a free something to munch on for the coach class.
Unlike the United Airlines Stroopwafel, the American Airlines Biscoff won’t gum up your teeth.
The chocolate cookie is called “Europe’s favorite cookie with coffee.” Depending on how you read that, you might be disappointed. There is no coffee in it. It apparently just goes well with coffee. But it’s a good cookie!
Ask your flight attendant if they’re American Airlines holdovers, or former US Airways. An American Airlines flight attendant will give you two cookies. A former US Airways flight attendant will just give you former US Airways attitude.
Cheryl Geller has completed her illustrated book based on the life and times of Buster Keaton Geller, aka Buster the on-eyed rooster, and she’s launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise a little bit of money to get it printed and published.
“After Buster died last year, I promised myself that I would finish his book before the one year anniversary of his death,” says Cheryl. “And I kept that promise.”
Contributing to the Indiegogo campaign gets you a copy of the book. Want it autographed? Absolutely. But that’ll take a little more time to get to you.
Airfare to St. Thomas is pretty attractive right now. Until you make yourself comfortable.
We have no status on United, but it flies these seasonal nonstops from Dulles and that’s just irresistible. And the fare is about $400 round-trip right now. Buying seats near the front of the plane, and buying our way to the front of the boarding line jacked that up a bit.
If you haven’t bought your December or January tickets yet, get going. Back-of-the-plane economy seats always sell out, and on some DC to STT flights on AA and UAL, they already are.
DC area travelers note: United has a second weekend nonstop from IAD to STT right now. One leaves at about 7:30am. The other at 8:30am.
Wharfside Village is undergoing a major, top-to-bottom and much-needed makeover, including what you see here street side that will soon be home to wine store Island Cork, which is relocating from Mongoose Junction.
