Date Visited: Wednesday, October, 21, 2015 My husband and I decided to make a date night out of a Wednesday night Armada game and went out for dinner at Hawkers Asian Street Fare first.

Date Visited: Sunday, October 25, 2015 It’s Sunday, Funday during the fall so the Jags are playing. It also happened to be the London game so was a 9:30 a.m. start for football.  All of our friends are die-heart Jags fans so we knew we were getting together for brunch to watch the game – my… Read More


Date Visited: Friday, October 23, 2015 One of the up-in-coming neighborhoods in Jacksonville is the Springfield area.

  Date Visited: Friday, August 7, 2015 Family owned, hidden gems are my favorite type of places, and Chowder Ted’s is one of those places. It’s tucked away off Heckscher Drive past the Blount Island turn off and next to the water. It’s in a perfect little “get-away” spot, but don’t judge a book by… Read More
