Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Martha Wright has spent six of the last twelve months in Paris, where she’s explored the city through the lenses of both a wine professional and sobriety coach. That’s meant homing in on best options for low-alcohol and no-alcohol venues and beverage options. Seeking out NA beverages around the world has been a colorful mission for Wright, bringing her into contact with young and passionate entrepreneurs. “It takes me out of my routine and across town to investigate a tip about a thoughtful zero-proof drink,” she says, like the “a spooky, sexy opium-den themed basement bar” where she drank a dramatically presented NA cocktail with CBD. “I’ve gotten into great discussions with young Parisian shopkeepers who are interested in these new NA spirits but I’ve also been laughed at and dressed down by the owner of a traditional wine shop when I inquired about NA wine!” To supplement our companion piece about Wright’s … [Read more...] about Alcohol Free Drinking In Paris?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Say “wine” and “Paris” side-by-side, and the association might conjure images of bistros or sidewalk cafés with une demi bouteille of a crisp white or chilled red shared over lunch. Low-alcohol or no-alcohol beverage options haven’t exactly fitted into the picture, traditionally, but that could be changing. Low- and no-alcohol [or NA] options are, contrary to history and romantic imaginings, a recent trend in France’s capital city. What’s behind such a shift? “I see Parisians, especially the younger ones, as being far more experimental and open to new ideas and to change than their parents,” said Martha Wright, a sobriety coach at Clear Power Coaching who also co-founded Scott Paul Wines in Oregon in 1999 and Caveau Selections wine importing company in 2006. Wright has spent six of the last twelve months in Paris, where her daughter currently lives, and has paid keen attention to the developments and trends in the “low … [Read more...] about Paris: The New Go-To Destination For Low- And No-Alcohol Beverages?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Growing up between the UK and US, I found it extremely interesting to watch how different cuisines were appreciated and accessed across the Atlantic. Filipino food, in particular. While it felt readily available in the US, it was nowhere to be found in the UK. In Indiana, Pinoy friends’ parents would whip up Adobo, Pansit and Lumpia with ease—even spit-roasted Lechon for special occasions!—while the parents of my London pals had never so much as heard of them. That is, until accomplished senior banker Rowena Romulo decided to open up London’s very first Filipino restaurant. “The whole idea and feasibility of opening a restauarant in London began at a dinner, where people found out I was a Romulo and said ‘why don’t you open a Romulo Café in London!’,” says Romulo. Attached to four critically-acclaimed restaurants in Manila, the family name did come with a legacy, but she wasn’t sure a legacy would be enough. … [Read more...] about This Family Is Putting Filipino Food On The Map In London
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin When the Florida Legislature convenes next week for a special session, lawmakers will be asked to approve a new tribal-state gambling compact that veers decidedly and aggressively across tribal borders. The new compact gives the Seminole Tribe of Florida— the largest tribal gaming operator in the United States—exclusive control over all sports betting conducted statewide, including over mobile devices (regardless of the bettor’s location) and at licensed racetracks and jai-alai facilities located well beyond tribal borders. This arrangement, however, brazenly flouts the 1988 federal law which allows states and Indian tribes to enter into compacts for Class III gaming activities, such as sports betting. That federal law—known as the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (or “IGRA” for short)—mandates that any gaming activities authorized under a tribal-state compact occur only “on Indian lands,” which is specifically defined by … [Read more...] about Florida’s Gambling Compact Set Up To Fail?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Skiing and snowboarding have surged in popularity in recent years, and the pandemic added fuel to the fire with a general increase in outdoor pursuits and active travel that further boosted the industry. Skiing’s season passes are cheaper than ever, family and multigenerational travel has also boomed, and the new work from home normal have all helped make ski towns much more popular winter destinations. But this has come with major downsides - record crowds, limited lodging availability, lift lines so long they become viral social media fodder, and lots of locals complaining about being overrun. But not at Montana’s Big Sky . Despite a wealth of good press and continuous coverage as “the next big thing” in skiing, the resort has managed to remain ahead of the curve on the ills that plague many competitors for two main reasons. One is part of its name, and part of its next big thing status, “big,” with so much skiing … [Read more...] about Why Big Sky Is Your Top Ski Vacation Destination This Winter – And Beyond
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Ed Jay is the President at Newfold Digital , a leading web and commerce technology company serving nearly 7 million customers globally. Our world is in an ever-changing state; there’s no doubt about it. Challenges brought on by the pandemic have transformed into new concerns, including a potential recession, labor shortages and supply chain uncertainty. While "unprecedented times" have become somewhat of a cliché by now, the economic ups and downs of the past few years have taught us that there’s no playbook for dealing with chaos. An unexpected twist is that large corporations seem to be taking a harder hit than they have in the past. Many are scrambling under the pressures of inflation and a decrease in consumer demand. Powerhouses such as Shopify and Tesla have made layoffs, and Target has needed aggressive product discounting from overestimated demand and excess inventory.
