    As some of you may know I have recently started a new adventure in my life…Because I wasn’t busy enough…I decided to buy a Bed and Breakfast!

    Not just any bed and breakfast, mine has a bit of a twist to it…naturally…

    Olde Bridge Place is NOT a traditional B&B…Here’s how it works..

    There are 2 suites that are situated in a 130 year old converted garage at the base of the Kissing Bridge. They have full kitchens, living area, large bedrooms and gorgeous bathrooms. The larger of the 2 suites, The Kissing Bridge suite even has it’s own private patio over looking the river and the bridge.

    I stock your room with FABOOSH local ingredients , fresh breads, pastries, eggs, bacon, fruit, juice, tea, coffee etc…and you make your own breakfast at your leisure..At NO TIME do I ever cook for you…

    You have your own private entrance, you get your own key and you come and go freely. At NO time are you in my home…However you can join me for cocktails on the porch…

    It’s a B&B only better…because you get your privacy and there is no awkward ..”I’m in someones house” stuff…

    The B&B is located in the middle of the St Jacobs, Elmira, Elora triangle in the heart of Mennonite country..So many great things to see and do..

    My new B&B is called, Olde Bridge Place and is located beside the historic Kissing Bridge in West Montrose on the banks of The Grand River. The last covered bridge in Ontario..

    It’s Peerrrrty….

    Comments Off on Know your Martini with Belvedere Contest Week #3














    World Martini Day was on June 19th, Belvedere Vodka and I have teamed up to have some fun and spread the Martini LUV!

    Sometimes however that Martini LUV can be expensive…One of the most expensive Martinis I have ever had was at Le Royal Monceau hotel in PaIMG_6319ris. It was a lovely warm ginger tea martini and cost… 29 Euro or in Canadian dollars $42.33…This broke my previous most expensive martini that stood at $29 US in Vegas…

    These are penny cocktails compared to one of the most expensive Martini’s in the world that is served up at the 45th floor lobby lounge at the Ritz Carlton Tokyo…The Diamonds are Forever Martini will set you back ¥1.8 million (approximately $18,000) …and it is garnished with a 1 carat diamond and is a regular menu item there! When one is ordered the live band will play the theme song from the James Bond movie of the same name…

    To enter this weeks contest you must tell what and where you had your most expensive Martini..Was it worth it? Send me a pick of it if you have one…
