San Francisco celebrates 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Summer of Love. There will be many stories written and told about it. This almost certainly will be the only such story that won't mention singer Scott McKenzie and the John Phillips lyric, "If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair."

I never had a yearning to visit Atlanta. It just wasn't a city on my radar. I'd flown through it a few times on my way to other cities, but hadn't ever considered it as a travel destination.

Small children and R2-D2s begin to blur. But also, you are reminded, again and again, that this is a family reunion.

Feasting in Verona, where tradition and creativity intersect

It was a chilly Tuesday afternoon in a giant shopping center in Verona, Italy, and there was a feast before me: a plate of tagliatelle strewn with saffron, spec and mushroom; oversized raviolis packed with scampi and artichoke. The raviolis on my friend's plate were stuffed with polenta and ossobuco. It was disorienting to be in a mall because this was some of the most excellent pasta I'd eaten in recent memory.

Marfa, Texas – unvarnished

You may have read, or more likely heard, all kinds of things about Marfa, Texas. That it's super cool. That it's a foodie destination. That it's right next to Big Bend. That it's completely overrated.
