Another great wine buy at Winn Dixie!  Marques de Caceres 2010 is a Spanish Red wine that is on sale for $11.99 per bottle and also gives you a 15 cent per gallon discount on gas with Winn Dixie fuel perks. The winemakers notes on Marques de Caceres says:“This rich, full-bodied wine is made only in excellent vintages from hand-picked Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano grapes grown in rioja altitude.  Aged in French and American oak casks, Marques de Caceres Red Crianza has a spicy aroma, berry fruit flavors and a velvety finish.”It is recommended that this wine is opened an hour before serving, and is recommended with hearty dishes such as roasts or grilled meats. I am now trying to figure out what to enjoy it with...YUM!

For my fellow Activerain Oenophils out there, I have a new wine for you.  Some of you may remember my  recent blog about the gas perks that are available at Winn Dixie.  Well, as I was buying my large shrimp for my Roast Shrimp and Broccoli dinner this evening, I ran across another opportunity to try a new wine, and earn some fuel perks as well!Little Black Dress Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 is now on sale at Winn Dixie for $8.99 a bottle and  also offers 10 cents per gallon in fuel perks.The varietal breakdown on this wine is:82% Cabernet Sauvignon8% Petite Sirah3% Syrah 7% Other Complimentary Red VarietalsIt is described as, "accessorized with aromas of berry and  lightly toasted oak, a hint of vanilla spice and a lush, lasting finish." My mouth is watering!  I can hardly wait for dinner!

I recently wrote a blog about my friend Stephanie loving chicken wings.  Well so do I, and Long Doggers Radically Relaxed Grill & Brew has the BEST garlic teriyaki wings going!  There are several specials that Long Doggers has during the week.  But in my opinion my favorite by far is the Monday night 39 cent wings.  My mom just recently went back to Minneapolis after visiting for the holidays.  When Mom is in town, every Monday, and I mean every Monday, she wants to go to Long Doggers for JC's Garlic Teriyaki wings. Normally you will get 1 pound of wings (approximately 10-12 wings) for $8.29, but on Monday's you can enjoy over 20 chicken wings for the same price at Long Doggers!  Like my friend Steph, I do like chicken wings, but I have never tasted a garlic teriyaki wing like you get a...

                 Back at the beginning of November, I wrote a blog about the deal on Gnarley Head Old Vine Zinfandel at Winn Dixie in Indialantic.  The deal was that you could buy a bottle of Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin for $8.99 and get 25 cents per bottle in Winn Dixie fuel perks.  What that means is, if you buy 4 bottles of any of the Gnarley Head wines, you would get $1 per gallon off of the price of gas when you go to fill up (maximum of 20 gallons of gas).  If you purchased 8 bottles of wine, at 25 cents per bottle, you would get $2 per gallon off of your gas and so on and so forth.  Furthermore, there are $1 per bottle coupons at Winn Dixie which would bring the price down to $7.99 per bottle.  But wait there's more! (sorry I couldn't help myself) if you buy more than 4 bottles of ...

To all my friends and all those who read my blog...Happy Thanksgiving from here on the Space Coast. I am looking forward to the slight chill in the air we are going to receive from an arctic blast (in the 40s...burr) in the morning. It is still forecast to warm to 70 degrees...so I am sure I will be able to struggle through! My 12 year old will be with me this year and we have big plans for the day. I hope everyone gets to spend time with their loved ones...and can look back on Thanksgiving 2013 with only the fondest of memories! FYI...although I hate black friday...I think I am going to have to go to WalMart and buy the $98 32" flat screen TV they have advertised. That is just too crazy!

Nestled on the south side of 5th Avenue about half way between the Atlantic boardwalk and the Indian River is City Tropics. Located at 249 Fifth Avenue, City Tropics isn't difficult to find, it has a neon green light ringing the top of the buildingin the evening.  For me personally, I enjoy the Happy Hour at City Tropics.  Your daily Happy Hour which is especially long starts at 11:00am and goes to 7:00pm daily.  During that time, you can enjoy the following: $6 Specialty Martinins                                                                $5 Specialty Cocktails $4 Wines $3 Well Drinks $2 Import Bottle Beer $2 Bud Light Draft But that isn't even the best part of City Tropics Happy Hour...the food is!  The City Tropics Happy Hour Menu is diverse and offers something for just about ev...

As many of you know, I am in love with sea turtles.  I volunteer with the Sea Turtle Preservation Society in Indialanticc, Florida on Florida's beautiful Space Coast.  When baby turtles hatch, they crawl into the sea and swim out to the Sargasso Sea many many miles off of Florida's coast.  The Sargasso Sea is full of dense thick seaweed and is approximately 700 miles wide by 2000 miles long.  When the baby turtles reach the Sargasso sea, they live, eat and are protected by the dense seaweed. When there are raging storms out at sea, some of the little turtles are caught in the storm and are washed back to shore in piles of seaweed.  These post hatchling turtles are called washbacks. By the time the washbacks reach the beach they are exhausted and often cannot make the trip back out to th...

This is happening more and more with a tight market. Low offers are often being turned down without a response. This client is looking at the Space Coast beachside...specifically Indialantic, FL The Question: Hello Jeffrey, We are very upset with how the sellers treated us on the home at ___________. We felt it was a fair starting offer and they did not even get back to us before accepting another deal. Why did the sellers not reply to our offer? John and Mary   My Answer: John and Mary, The market is very different then when you sold your home up north two years ago. I discussed with you how tight the market was in the area and price point you want. I advised an offer of ____________ based on the comparable sales we went over.

I love oysters on the half shell, and Bunky's Raw Bar on the beautiful Space Coast of Florida is one of my favorites. Don't let the name fool you.  Bunky's Raw Bar isn't just a "raw bar". In fact, it's kind of like a little dive sports bar that just happens to offer a raw oysters and such.                                                                                             Located 2372 A1A at the other end of the strip mall from Thai Thai II that I blogged about last month, Bunky's Raw Bar is kind of a locals hangout.  When I have people that come to visit me from out of town and want seafood, Bunky's Raw Bar is a great place to take them! The interior isn't fancy, but I could care less about that.  I like the fact that I know that when I put in an order for a dozen oysters on th...

Being from Colorado, I really am fond of good Mexican food.  So, I was really looking forward to dining at Cantina Dos Amigos.  I went to Cantina Dos Amigos with another realtor here on the Space Coast who told me that he really liked it (I won't name him and embarrass him in this blog for his lack of good cuilinary taste...lol). When you walk into Cantina Dos Amigos, located at 990 North A1A in Indialantic, the decor is really very inviting.  The Mexican talavera style is well done and cheerfully appealing.  Unfortunately, that's as far as it goes. The salsa at Cantina Dos Amigos,was bland and certainly was nothing close to an authentic salsa or Salsa Miexicano (pico do gallo).  It tasted as if they opened up a can of tomatoe sauce and threw a few spices into it and served it up.  I o...

This past weekend, a few friends and I went out to eat at Thai Thai II in Indialantic.  Located at 2324 N Hwy A1A in Indialantic, Thai Thai II is located right across the street from Paradise Beach behind Icabods.                               Thai Thai serves both Thai food and sushi, and in our party we tried a little of both!  My friend Candy ordered the Beachside Roll and seaweed salad.  The  Beachside Roll was really good!                   I ordered a Spider Roll and the fresh Ama Ebi shrimp.  The shrimp tails were fresh and garnished with caviar and the heads were served fresh and hot right out of the cooker.  I also had the salmon roe with quail egg which was also fresh and tasty. My friend Avery had the Pad Thai and judging from the fact that her plate was empty when it went ba...

Wednesday night here on the Space Coast is always an easy night to find something fun to do! At the Crowne Plaza in Indialantic they have live music from 5 to 9pm or so out on the oceanfront deck. They generally bring in local bands that play either jazz or classic rock music. The happy hour specials (including $4 wine) are a great value...and listening to live music with a beautiful ocean backdrop is a huge bonus! They also offer a nice bar menu...our party ordered lot of sliders! The fish tacos off the restaurant menu are also a standout. The Crowne Plaza has plenty of parking available...not only in the attached lot, but also in the lot directly across A1A from The hotel (the lot has a walk over so no danger in crossing the street).

With the real estate market hopping the way it is I am putting in a lot of very long days. Sometimes I end up skipping lunch and by the time dinner rolls around I have absolutely no interest in cooking. Enter the quick happy hour and tapas specials that exist everywhere...in fact we have quite a few restaurants and tapas bars that offer fast tasty bites for reasonable prices. My favorite option in town is the Tuna Slider happy hour special at City Tropics on 5th Ave in Indialantic. City Tropics is a cool restaurant that has quite a bit to offer. A full sushi bar, a sit down restaurant open for lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch, and two bars (inside and outside patio). If you sit at the bar City Tropics has a really nice happy hour menu that offers quite a few slider options...but the Tun...
