Cantina 🌮 and tequila bar

New Mexican Spot in White Plains..Yes please

On Mamaroneck ave adjacent to Lily’s and Hudson grille Cantina has set up a taco and tequila bar. I can fit lunch on a weekday so it was quiet. It smelled and looked meticulously clean. Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was fresh and delicious! Margaritas came in many different flavors I chose spicy. we ordered steak tacos with chimichuri sauce, rock shrimp tacos, and fried fish tacos. We wanted the pork belly and chorizo too but they weren’t ready yet. But that’s ok gives me an excuse to come back !! There’s outdoor seating however we sat inside because it was an incredibly hot day. Happy that this place exists now white plains was missing a taco spot!

The Parlor 🍕


The parlor tiki bar

One of my fav pizza places in Westchester is The Parlor.. I don’t know if it’s the sauce ..the dough but it’s perfection. 👌 it’s located on cedar street in DObbs Ferry. They have frozen margaritas and Fros’e too! 😋

Captain Lawrence Brewery

Captain Lawrence Brewery in Elmsford, NY is stepping up their game with a brand spanking new beer hall and distillery. The new beer hall is much more spacious  than it’s prior warehouse quarters.

The distillery is not up and running yet. However, the new Beer Hall is in full swing. I am a big fan of Captain Lawrence Beer and I can be a bit of a beer snob. A few of my favs are Galactic Fog, Hylo, and Red Stars and Strikes.

 

There is a new menu. A wide range of food to enjoy. Anything from tacos, BBQ, wings, oysters, and truffle fries. The pizza is amazing! That dough tho…

They have always had a great Beer Garden that has outdoor seating along with bean bag toss (corn hole), boccee ball, and jenga.  There are tons of picnic tables so there is ample seating inside and out. They have trivia on Wednesday nights, and live music on the weekends. They also give 30 min tours on Saturday and Sunday at 1:00pm and 2:00pm for only $7 pp, $2 dollars for a tasting glass that you get to keep.

They are extremely kid/baby friendly, so you don’t have to worry about finding a sitter. I already brought Emma and we both met new friends. However, leave the puppies at home they are no longer pet friendly.

Before you leave you can also pick up a 6 pack of  a limited edition beer such as Cookie Puss Birthday Beer Milk Shake IPA or Soft Swerve for you to enjoy at home.

Re:fresh Beauty Bar

lobbyfresh

I recently moved to Elmsford this May, and I spotted a cute Lil shop with a pink neon sign through the window. What can I say, Cute neon signs get my attention. I googled their name Re:fresh Beauty Bar and I assumed it was a blow dry bar. (Not that a blow dry bar wouldn’t be great right down the street from my apartment). However, they did offer other services like eyebrow shaping and tinting along with popular nowadays thanks to Kylie Jenner and many other celebrities

After I had Emma I felt I needed a little pick me up.  I went in to get my eyebrows shaped and tinted since I hadn’t touched them in months. After I left I felt like a new woman.

This place is extremely cute. It is modern and very girly. There are two extremely talented and friendly girls who own and work there. Roxanne specializes in brows and is a Licensed Esthetician and Danielle who is a RN and a certified cosmetic injector, does the fat sculpting for unsightly cellulite and injectable’s. Volbella is also a great filler for your under eye area and lips to give it a subtle pout.

 

You can make reservations on vagaro.

Wolf & Warrior Brewing

wolf1               wolf

Wolf and Warrior Brewing  located right off Mamaroneck Ave near the WP bar scene. Nice spacious location  with plenty of seating and games to keep you entertained. (I recently became obsessed with Jenga)

Staff was super friendly and took the time to talk to us about their beer and their new location.

They were out of their cider at that time which I was a lil bummed about. They will be getting more beers on tap in the near future.

All beer is brewed on premises.

They also serve food for you to munch on.

They serve farm to table food. No wait staff so you order at the bar.

They do flights were you choose 5 beers to try. My favorite was the Patagonia-Argentinian Blonde Ale (I’m a fan of blonde’s).

BLVD

BLVD …A Posh new Salon opened up in Scarsdale Village recently and I decided to check it out.

But It’s more than a typical Salon ..

It’s a multi brand beauty shop.

They offer nails, by Valley that offer awesome nail art that was once only found in NYC. My nail artist was Carol.

Dream dry offers blow outs ..waves… braids ..updo’s..anything you can think of! My girl Myra hooked me up with a side braid and waves. I wanted something different and something I couldn’t do on myself. I have tried so many times to watch you tube videos and braid it myself but i just couldn’t get it right. She was so friendly and easy to talk to. My hair was soooo fabulous when I left (runway ready).

My makeup was done by Nicole who was a sweetheart and I had a great chat with her as she was doing my makeup. I opted for a soft natural look with a bright lip. I’ll be using her for my next event 💁

They have iPads where you can sort thru images to find some inspiration on the look you are going for!

Q Authentic Barbeque Restaurant

My love for good BBQ extends beyond the typical NY BBQ season. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, parks and backyards all across the state are full with hungry families wanting their fill of smoky good food. Luckily, in Portchester there is a BBQ joint that will satisfy your hunger all year round. It is named “Q Authentic Barbeque Restaurant & Bar”. This place does come across as a typical hole in the wall style BBQ joint. However, it is a nice restaurant with plenty of seating and a full bar for you to enjoy your meal. I have tried several items on their menu. The stand-outs for me personally are the Chicken Wings and the Grilled Chicken Club sandwich.

Also, I have rated the items that I have tried on a scale of 1 to 5.

The ribs – 4/5

Collard greens- 4/5

Brisket- 3/5

Corn bread- 4/5

French fries- 4/5

Chicken wings- 5/5

Banana Pudding-3/5

Grilled Chicken Club-5/5

FlyWheel Scarsdale

I like bike 🚴 riding and I like jamming out to music. 🎶 Here, you can do both and get a kick ass workout in 45 minutes.My job was offering free classes a few months ago and I decided to take them up on it. I recently tried out SoulCycle and loved it. However, the price was pretty hefty and I couldn’t swing it.

So, off I went to check out FlyWheel located in Scarsdale. It’s in very close proximity to home and work. I downloaded the app and created an account with them. I reserved my class and picked my bike out. And.. I loved it.

You can put your shoe size in your profile and your cycling shoes are ready for you in a cubby with your bike number. Free shoes!! How about that. Soulcycle makes you rent their shoes at $3 a pop.

You can check in with one of the girls who are super friendly or you can check in via Laptop.

There are free lockers where you can toss your belongings in. Along with showers and changing areas.

There is also free water for you to fill up your bottles.

There’s a map where you can find your bike and you head into the studio. There are people there to help the newbies out. The bike seat should be at hip length and the distance from seat to handles should be by length from elbow to hand. I still have problems and people help me.. Those bikes can be tricky.

The instructor comes in ..dims the light and pumps up the music..

They tell you where your torque(level of resistance) and RPM should be. When I went to SoulCycle they did not do this. This makes the class much more difficult.

There is also a arm workout with weights and races to get your competitive streak going. You can pick your name to display on the torque board so you can see how you are doing in the race.

They also have theme rides. I like my old school hip hop and R&B rides. 

They also have fruit out for a pre or post workout snack 🍏 🍎 🍌 

Is this an intense workout. I think so. I always want to puke when I leave. But that’s usually how I feel after any intense workout. Once that passes I feel incredible like I can take over the 🌎 world. 

Cellar 49- Spring HVRW 2017

I made a Last minute decision to check out Cellar 49 in Tarrytown, NY for HVRW… and I’m sooo glad I did . Food and service is top notch 👌🏻

Reservation booked on OpenTable

This restaurant is a hidden gem. It is located on the grounds of the Tarrytown House Estate 🏡 As I walked down the stairs to a wooden door entrance and sat at the bar…I def got a speak easy vibe. Which I love ❤️. It was the “original” Cellar in the historic Biddle Mansion.

I started with the Truffle Burrata. It was drizzled in balsamic with pistachios and flatbread on the side. Delicious! 

🍽For Entree I chose the Flat Iron Steak that was cooked perfectly . It was paired with mashed potatoes and charred asparagus in a savory sauce. It was so tasty and one of the best steaks I have had in a while!

🍰The Dessert was a toffee almond cheesecake drizzled with caramel😋 (the main reason I chose this restaurant). It was heavenly! 

Everything was so amazing..I definitely recommend trying this place out. They have a three course pre-fix menu year round Mon-Thurs.
