In 1831, Benjamin Disraeli wrote the book The Young Duke. It is a book about a young orphan who comes into a vast sum of money and starts to squander it before the love of a woman shows him the error of his ways. During his party days, he spent a good deal of time at the track, betting on the horses as he drank and wooed the ladies. There was some excitement at the track that day; "a dark horse which had never been thought of, and which the careless St. James had never even observed in the list, rushed past the grandstand in sweeping triumph." Disraeli penned the first written usage in history … [Read more...] about (Not A) Dive Bar Tuesday: The Dark Horse Tavern

For all those folks who may not celebrate Christmas, or just don’t want to cook that day, finding a restaurant open on December 25th can be difficult, especially if you’re looking for a fine-dining experience. Of course you can always dine at Waffle House- they never close, but no matter where you dine out, please remember that the staff of these places have given up their holiday to serve you, so please tip generously, as working on a holiday is never fun, but should at least be profitable for those away from their families Here's a round up of places that WILL be open: Ajanta … [Read more...] about Restaurants Open For Christmas 2016
