RH Nashville, The Gallery Of Green Hills

If you were remotely close to the Green Hills area on Thursday evening, perhaps you heard the beats of the swanky New York DJ, the clinking of frosé glasses or the swoons from the crowds. 1500 of Nashville's finest gathered to celebrate the grand opening of RH Nashville, The Gallery of Green Hills.  As someone who has watched this structure being built over the last several months, I was eager to see the finished product. It's nothing short of MAGNIFICENT.

TJ Tuesday Information

I always say I wouldn't need a glass of wine after work if my job was tasting wine! Luckily, I have found some great new wines for the summer at Trader Joe's. I've had a lot of questions lately about where you find my TJ Tuesday wine info. So, I thought it might be helpful if I put it all in a short post.

Swan Ball

The Swan Ball is by far one of my favorite events of the year. While this is a departure from my normal content, I received so many questions about the event and the preparation involved, that I thought it would be fun to do a post strictly dedicated to the event, as it merits such. 

Blonde Voyage Nashville Dreams Of Sushi

Jiro Dreams of Sushi, the critically acclaimed documentary that had food enthusiasts marveling over 85-year-old Jiro Ono, the greatest sushi chef in the world. Chef Jiro Ono is the mastermind and owner of Sukiyabashi Jiro which is located in a Tokyo subway station. Not only was he the first sushi chef to have three Michelin stars bestowed upon him, but who would have believed the Michelin inspectors were seeking out fine fining in underground rail stations?

Snacking My Way Through Nishiki Market

Seeing as I am quite the food enthusiast, no trip to Kyoto would be complete without a visit to the Nishiki Market. Nishiki Market, located in downtown Kyoto, spans over five city block and houses over 100 different merchants and restaurants. 

Even though this isn't the largest or flashiest food market in Japan, it has some history, 400+ years to be exact. If only those walls could talk! 

Exploring Kyoto: The Ultimate Itinerary

While I was in Japan, I had the pleasure of visiting Tokyo and Kyoto and they couldn't be more different. Tokyo epitomizes the modern urban experience as residents enjoy an assortment of Michelin starred restaurants, vibrant nightlife and the most state-of-the-art technology. Kyoto, on the other hand, exemplifies tradition, tranquility, and relaxation.

Roaming For Ramen

Some of you might be saying "yawn...ramen? Isn't that foodie trend over?"

No, I'm not talking about the Maruchan noodles you may have considered dinner in college to fund your "extracurricular activities." I'm referring to the delicious broth that's cooked for hours on end that oozes with flavor and filled with delectable noodles. Inevitably leaving a smile on your face, a full tummy and guiding you straight to a food coma.
