A Royal Announcement

Crown Royal Canadian Whisky recently announced the expansion of its portfolio with two new offerings, the Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye and the Crown Royal Hand Selected Barrel which they showcased in Houston on Tuesday this week at an exclusive tasting event at The Honeymoon Café & Bar on Main St. 

Acclaimed Master of Whisky and fellow Houstonian, Mayra Isais, led a guided whisky tasting to the delight of attendees. Crown Royal Canadian whisky has a smooth, elegant style that Mayra says is a reflection of its aristocratic origins.  

Seagrams created this brand in 1939 to pay homage to the king and queen who were visiting Canada for a grand tour. It was only available north of the border until 1964. Since then, it has become familiar to a much larger audience. Crown Royal Canadian whisky is now the number one selling Canadian whisky brand in the US. 

Guests were also treated to a selection of delicious Northern Harvest Rye cocktails that could keep anyone cool through the rest of Houston's hot summer. 

When you are ready for your next cocktail, check out both Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye, the brand’s first-ever blended rye whisky or a straight up pour of Crown Royal Hand Selected Barrel which pays tribute to the brand’s signature smoothness.

Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows - Santa Monica

My husband and I stayed at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows with our adult daughter this summer after her graduation from a Masters program at Claremont Graduate University.

We wanted to be near the beach but still be able to easily get into Los Angeles to visit some of the tourist attractions. This was our first time to stay at a Fairmont Hotel. I chose the Miramar for its ocean views and its proximity to the Santa Monica Pier and the beach. It has a long history with a Hollywood connection, it has been a destination of the stars for almost a century. After looking over the various room options, I decided that the Palisade King Suite would easily accommodate us. My husband and I shared a private bedroom and our daughter got the fold out couch in the living room. The six story Palisades wing which housed our room is a historic part of the property that was built in 1924. For a more luxe experience, you can also book a poolside bungalow instead.

We all enjoyed spa treatments a…

Touring the Getty Villa

We toured the Getty Villa during our recent trip to Santa Monica, it was about a 15 minute drive from our hotel. We opted to do a self-guided tour as we had not really allowed enough time for this visit. The museum is currently under construction and will be until the fall of this year so some parts were closed or not fully functional during our time there. Check the website for more information on times and schedules.

Visitors enter through the Fleishman Theater which was added in 1996 during a renovation. It is constructed to look like an outdoor classical theater and they will do a live production here on weekends in September which does carry a cost.

Admission is free to tour the Getty Villa but parking is $15 a car. You do need to go on-line and reserve your tickets as you have a designated entry time. They also have shows, tours and live music on their calendar that you may want to schedule your visit around, some fees may apply for those special events. The shows include a wide r…
