Grand.  Glitzy.  Old World Glamor.  Lunch or Dinner in the Russian Tea Room, founded in 1927 by members of the Russian Imperial Ballet, is a dining experience right out of New York City’s celebrated Gilded Age.  A time of elegance, wealth and culture, restaurants were places where the city’s influential cultural, business and political elite gathered for evening-long dining, drinking, socializing and entertainment.  They were glamorous places to see and be seen.  Located near the cultural touchstone Carnegie Hall, The Russian Tea Room was, and still is, one of these.

Set aside a full day for the Catalina Island Day Trip and use the special coupon at the end of this article.  You’ll be glad you did.

My island adventure, which I took with friends, began with an early morning shuttle ride, provided by Southern California Gray Line, from our hotel to Long Beach Harbor.  We arrived in ample time to board the sleek Catalina Express and get comfortably situated for the 9:45am departure.  While there is inside seating, it was a nice day so we opted for outside upper deck seating for the 1-hour ferry ride.  Skimming across the open water of Catalina Channel on the fast, smooth 22-mile ride was a thrill!  As the rocky cliff outcroppings plunging down into the aquamarine waters came into view, excitement grew.

The island is a world apart from the bustle and bling of the mainland.  Crystalline waters, breath-taking scenery and the quaint charm of Avalon, the island’s only “city,” make this a sought-after destination.  It’s busy, but not congested.  There’s plenty of open space to spread out as 89% of the island is protected, thereby retaining its natural beauty.

Presidential Sites – Places of Politics, Policies and Legacies

Category: Misc. Thoughts   Published by

As the end of this contentious, seemingly never-ending, presidential election year nears, one wonders what drives these particular Americans to seek the presidency. Who are they, and why do they run? They are, after all, Everyman.

For insight, look no further than to those who have come before them.  Visit a Presidential Historic Site.  What you’ll find depends on the era, and the president. All former presidents have at least one, with the exception of Zachary Taylor, who has none. Abraham Lincoln has six, the most by far.

A presidential site can be a birthplace, homestead, residence, museum, or library.  Some are thought-provoking in their sheer simplicity; others are Disney-esque complexes designed to dazzle and engage through multimedia presentations, interactive displays, and full-size replicas of Oval Offices. One even has a real Air Force One! Some are cold; others vibrant. Regardless of style, they are a snapshot of the American presidency at a moment in time and provide a sense of the individuals who aspired to, and reached, the pinnacle of power.

JFK Presidential Library Group Tickets & Packages

Category: Boston   Published by

flagApproximately one month before his assassination, John F. Kennedy toured the grounds of Harvard University. The president was considering potential locations for his presidential library and museum. He chose a site near the Charles River and the Winthrop House, which was the dormitory where he lived during his last two years at the university. After his ill-fated trip to Dallas, his family began planning his memorial. President Kennedy’s widow Jacqueline chose I. M. Pei, a relatively unknown architect, to design the museum and library. Due to lengthy delays and opposition to the project, the search committee chose a new location near the University of Massachusetts Boston campus. Dedicated nearly 16 years after the president’s death, the museum overlooks the sea from its ten-acre park complex.
