Yes, we’re becoming bluezoo fanboys (well, one of us is a fangirl)

We headed back over to bluezoo on Friday night, if you follow our twitter feed (@extrawdwmagic) then you already know about most of the meal…

BUT here’s a recap, and a story…

When we arrived, we noticed that Monique was behind the bar! Yay! Nick could order a Boulevardier (Monique has been working to get

Chips & Slices, new snack bar at Lake Buena Vista Golf Course

There’s a new snack bar at the Lake Buena Vista golf course located at Saratoga Springs resort. Nick had heard about it on the internet (do you ever stop and think about how incongruous it is that we say that we “heard” something on the internet – it’s mainly a reading and writing medium)…

2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – Beer & Food Pairing at Via Napoli

We did this event two years ago, during the first year of it’s existence… it wasn’t as impressive as our first Tequila Lunch, so we decided to give it a year or two to mature. This year, Calvin agreed to come with us – it was nice to have a friend sharing the experience.

NEW Ice Cream Sandwich from France Pavilion in Epcot

On Wednesday of last week (October 2nd), I had seen a post on The Disney Food Blog – an exclusive news story – there’s a new pressed brioche ice cream sandwich at Epcot’s L’Artisan des Glaces in France… I thought it sounded interesting and of course, had to relay the news to Nick and to

Review – purchase at the Wine Store – 2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

Last year, we surprised ourselves by buying two bottles of wine at the “wine store” inside the Food & Wine Festival Center (known as Wonders of Life pavilion to old-timers)… We liked the Bernau Block from Williamette Valley Vineyards so much that we had to have some all for ourselves (btw here is the blog

2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – Tequila Lunch #1

On Thursday of last week, we went to dinner at Todd English’s bluezoo with our friends Lisa & Andy (we were celebrating their 45th Wedding Anniversary… congratulations!)… In addition to our dinner, Chef Ryan brought out two surprises for us and we wanted to share them here.

First treat was braised duck leg quarter served
