Where to Experience True Italian Aperitivos in New York This Summer

Jul 22, 2014  |   Contributor: Donald Herrera-Fairbairn

Time and again, the concept of aperitivo Italiano is directly compared with the American deal-fest that we so lovingly refer to as happy hour. However, there are some striking differences between the two that should be discussed. Taking place primarily in northern Italian cities like Milan and Turin, aperitivo normally happens between 7 and 9 p.m. and serves as a socializing appetizer before Italians enjoy their decidedly late dinners. Though discounted prices aren't at play (those who advertise discounted prices are usually just catering to tourists), they do often come with small tapas-like plates to accompany guests' beverages.

Does Temecula Valley's Wine Country Measure Up To Its Northern Neighbor, Napa Valley?

Jun 13, 2014  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

With the pull of a lever, puffs of fire shot up above our heads, warming the surrounding air and filling the checkered-rainbow hot air balloon as we rose higher and higher. Lofty Idea, as she is called, slowly moved farther and farther from the ground, quietly showing you how small you really are. On this crystal clear day the wind was tranquil, which meant the women piloting this Wizard-of-Oz vessel would have to heavily rely on finding just the right air space to cause the balloon to move right or left.

Visit Napa County's Less Crowded Town of Yountville for Chandon, Bouchons & Relaxation

Apr 26, 2014  |   Contributor: Lena Katz

Spring is a beautiful time to visit Napa, and if you're in a quandary about where to stay, the small, chic, easily walkable village of Yountville is a great choice. It's not as congested as St. Helena, and there's friendly energy and picture-perfect ambience. With many charming inns and luxury boutique hotels in town, there's a pleasant detachment from reality. It's not unusual to see rock stars and the Mayor hobnobbing at a low-key wine tasting or South American jet-setting visitors strolling down the main street in a toweling robe with a glass of wine in hand.

There's a scene in the BBC miniseries Parade's End, where a group of upper class people (including Benedict Cumberbatch, of course) have a lavish picnic in the English countryside, surrounded by picturesque rolling hills.
