Decorated in a bold techie decor with a pattern of vibrant colors, bold stripes and the sleek twisted stainless steel mechanisms of the roller coaster railings, ROGO’S is where food meets amusement. If it weren’t for the lack of concert style lighting and throbbing club music I would think it is required to buckle up for the ride, but you don’t, because the only thing that is making loops, spirals and spins at approximately 2-8 km/h is your food coming down a tornado track!
Candylicious is not just a candy store— it is a sweet tooth destination chocked full of 4,000 assorted sweets; or as they like to call it a feast for the senses. It kind of gives me a psychedelic sugar buzz just walking in. It’s a candyland on steroids, a color wheel spun out of control, a mish mosh of all things scrumptious and definitely every child’s dream come true.
There they were. A cozy cuddle of six kittens closely snuggled up directly under my car tire. Thank goodness when I pulled out of the garage for the morning school commute that they were in front of the wheel and not behind. It could have been a terribly traumatic experience for Mini.
Whoa…what do you mean that’s a real pisser? I am no Lily Librarian. I have seen and heard a fair amount in my life but I didn’t expect my ten year-old to use the word pisser straight in my face.
I should’ve been born in the steamy streets of Havana’s Barrio Chino eating a spicy egg roll and washing it down with a cold minty mojito. I think I would’ve felt right at home dancing the conga or the mambo under the Asian lanterns that light the neighborhood of Havana’s uniquely flavor-fused, sui generis community — known as Barrio Chino de la Habana or Havana’s Chinatown.
Be careful over there! my American friends said to me. As if the Middle East is simply one big mosh pit of danger, mayhem and debris. Be careful doing what? I thought to myself. Choking on lobster, slipping on a marble floor, or poking my eye out with a canape skewer?
It is a love affair with the unknown. An addiction to the experience. A memory that may never be forgotten.
