Today my sister took me to try a new restaurant – The Mammoth Railway Cafe in Park City. It’s part of a bed and breakfast – the Grand Victorian Inn. I have never written a review of a restaurant before, or food, but as I know the owner of the cafe (He was one of my older brother’s best friends in high school and therefore treated me as an annoying little sister), I thought I should share its amazingness with the world!
The building itself is beautiful. It was built in the late 1800s and has been everything from an inn to a stagecoach to a house/residence to a boys school to a old folks home. It has a great history, and one I would like to learn more about. It had fallen into disrepair when it was bought and restored. My friend owns the restaurant half, and then there…

Great guide to some awesome places to visit in Louisville, Kentucky.
Louisville is a five-hour drive from Chicago but a world away, full of Bourbon, Kentucky Fried Chicken, horses and changing neighborhoods. Here are must-do activities to experience some of the best food, drink, shopping and sites of Louisville in a short amount of time.
Day 1 – Morning: From the Marriott Louisville Downtown head to Market Street to get to NuLu, also known as East Market District. This neighborhood is rapidly changing, a.k.a getting hipsterfied, and is a mix of industrial companies, restaurants, shops and galleries.

A great review on eating at Boone Tavern in Berea, Kentucky where the food is fantastic and affordable and the service is great. Always an enjoyable experience.
Berea was hosting its 19th Annual Spoonbread Festival this weekend, so my daughter and I headed south very early one morning, hoping to get tethered rides in one of the hot air balloons. We knew that if weather conditions weren’t right, they wouldn’t take the balloons up and that’s how it turned out–a bit too breezy, so not safe.
Since it was still pretty early in the morning, we decided to go to the Historic Boone Tavern Restaurant for coffee and breakfast. Good choice!
I’d heard of Boone Tavern Hotel & Restaurant and had admired the beautiful 1909 building whenever I’ve been down to Berea, but had never stopped in. It was built by Berea College as a guesthouse after the wife of the president of the college had entertained 300 guests of the college in just one summer. Can’t say I blame her for saying “enough”! Well played, Mrs…
