I cannot believe it is finally here! We registered today for what will surely be a fun-filled 3 days of culinary madness (my sister is holding my other 8 shopping bags, but don’t tell the Hubby).
Upon our arrival last night, we headed to Jimmy’s on Mill Street, a local favorite. Recognized in 2012 as one of the Top 50 bars in the nation by Food & Wine, Jimmy’s has over 120 tequilas and mezcals from which to choose, plus an extensive cocktail and spirits menu. The food was outstanding, and very colorful. Now I just have to convince the ladies to return Saturday night for some salsa dancing.

|Prickly pear sorbet|
We also had to swing by Ajax Tavern for some truffle fries and our first glimpse of Mario Batali, who is often seen eating here during the F&W Classic.

One of my favorite shopping stops was at Amen Wardy to see his beautiful tablescapes. Check out these beaded place mats and the Indo-China inspired place setting below…love, love, love.
Off to get a good night’s sleep…class with Jacques Pepin at 10 am. Sweet dreams!
