Sorry we're a little late today kids, Miss Vero had to sleep in to recover from last nights dinner party. Nothing elaborate, just a little get together to cheer up a few friends who have been recently "downsized". On the menu - "tossed" salad and beef "stroke-meoff", all washed down with a generous supply of Effen vodka martinis. Probably way too many Effen vodka martinis, but we just couldn't help ourselves, the prices at the new Crown wine and spirits store out on route 60 were so reasonable. $19.99 for a bottle of Effen vodka and yes there really is such a thing!
We spent some time shopping out there and we have to tell y'all - we are in love! It is simply the best new store for alkeehaul and party supplies in Vero! The folks there are just so ever helpful and they let y'all taste the fabulous cheeses, snack items and do a little wine tasting to boot! Miss Vero loves, loves, loves it and this Saturday they are havin a little grand opening party from 6-8pm.
In fact, y'all could do all your holiday shoppin at that store. They have the most beautiful holiday gift baskets. Honestly, we are not easily impressed, but the selection of food, gifts and alkeehaul was incredible. They even have a little gift wrapping station and cards to make it one stop!
MORE RESTUARANT RUMORS!
Looks like the location that was formally Rip's Ribs will keep it's carnivore theme and become MT's Chophouse and we hear that they're trying to open before the end of the year: http://www.mtschophouse.com/
The Peruvian Restaurant on Royal Palm Pointe is being remodeled and yet another Italian restaurant will be moving in.
Costa D'Este has a new General Manager, we hear she's a lovely woman of Puerto Rican decent who will keep the resort flavorful.
PRESS JOURNAL CONTINUES TO FRUSTRATE US!
That's nothing new. But hey y'all, remember all the hoopla about that dog that was found in Fellsmere? Y'all know the one that had special surgery and the PJ posted the story to find the owners, actually we think they posted a coupla stories. With all the interest that the PJ seemed to have in this story, imagine our surprise when we read in the Florida Today that the owners were found and decided they didn't want the dog after all. Thanks also to a Beach House reader who had seen the story and wondered when the PJ would follow up:
We won't even go into Mr. Lemmon's column today of his "adventure" in Sin City. Puh-leassse!
If that wasn't hilarious enough, the first comment by the sharp LDouglas mad us laugh so hard, our head started hurting! And then of course, MaxNewport chimed in and made us laugh some more! Ouch, there's that headache again. Oh well, maybe a little hair of the lost dog?
