What’s there to do during the dreaded Carmageddon weekend? I know some people are opting to stay home so they’re not stuck on the roads all day, but this is the worst week to do it! There’s a lot (and I mean A LOT) of food, drinking and live music in this week’s lineup of events. So fight the traffic for a bit this weekend — it’ll be well worth the drive.
Asian Vegetarian Food & Culture Tour™

Travel through China in just one day and experience what it offers when it comes to delicacies and home cooked meals. Indulge in barbecue (roasted duck and pork), wonton soup, dim sum(roasted pork bun, or fried sesame ball), Cantonese beef jerky, teas, scallion pancakes and dumplings filled with meats, seafood, and veggies. It’s great to go as a group or on a first date!
I’ve already raved about Beth Springer’s “Dim Sum” cinch bag in a previous post. It’s one of my must-have handbag looks for spring.
But really, what I love about the “Dim Sum” is that it has everything you need for spring. The long gold chain strap, the perfectly two-toned tan hue, and the de rigeur drawstring bucket shape. The chain gives any casual shorts-and-tee outfit that extra oomph, while the bucket shape and color lends an air of that nonchalant prep-geek look everyone’s trying to accomplish this season. (Think Alexa Chung.)
What more can you ask for?
