Weekly Hot Tips – April 7
This is my weekly post that will summarize Weekly Hot Tips that I read throughout the week. I have added a link to my review of the restaurants I’ve visited. Rest assured, the ones I haven’t are on the hit list for sure. I’ll start with restaurants, then food and wine, and finally a section under activities. Happy reading!!
And here’s an excellent quote passed on by my friend and scholar, Mike G, a man of many talents and one of the best sales guys you’ll ever encounter. From A.A. Milne, “The third-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the majority. A second-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking with the minority. A first-rate mind is only happy when it is thinking.”
