Host A Breakfast Party

It always seems like spring is the busiest time for our friends and family. There are soccer games to attend, gardening to accomplish, trips, tours, graduations — all sorts of things are going on and entertaining time can be sparse. Instead of insisting that everyone come for dinner, why not try getting things done early and host a weekend breakfast bash instead?

Although hosting Brunch is a rather fashionable thing to do, it can be a hard time for many folks to drop what they’re doing and swing on by. By the time the sun is already high in the sky, plans have started and your day is progressing. Instead, have all your friends over for a morning cup of joe and some breakfast snacks instead. Besides, who can say no to an 8am breakfast party?

You can host all the food yourself or ask guests to bring things pot luck — though if you go that route, be prepared for a lot of muffins. The good news about breakfast foods is that they’re extra easy to make in bulk. Who’s ever made just one mini quiche? One pancake? One cinnamon roll? Our point exactly!

By hosting a morning party you’ll not only get a chance to catch up with friends, but everyone will still be able to carry on with their busy lives as planned. Have early morning friends? Try hosting a pre-dawn party (which isn’t like Breaking Dawn… sorry Twilight fans) and start things at 5, 6 or 7am to make sure everyone gets a chance to attend!

“The Ultimate Dining Experience: A Rock And A Hard Place”  

“The Ultimate Dining Experience: A Rock And A Hard Place”  

Yes, it is a cave…   a hollow place in the ground.   Specifically,  a natural underground space large enough for a human to enter. Caves form naturally by the weathering of rock and often extend deep underground. The word cave can also refer to much smaller openings such as sea cavesrock shelters, and grottos.

It is estimated that the maximum depth of a cave cannot be more than 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) due to the pressure of overlying rocks. For karst caves the maximum depth is determined on the basis of the lower limit of karst forming processes, coinciding with the base of the soluble carbonate rocks.

Most caves are formed in limestone by dissolution.

But check this cave out:

Stunning views over the Adriatic, a warm summer night’s breeze and world class dining – the only thing the Grotta Palazzese is missing is four walls.

This enchanting restaurant in Polignano a Mare in Southern Italy was built inside a cave centuries ago, allowing for one of the world’s most unique dining experiences.
Carved from the cliff face’s limestone, the restaurant juts out 74 feet above sea level, allowing diners to watch the waves lap the shores just beneath them.

Yes, ‘Breathtaking’: A Restaurant Grotto, situated in a limestone cave in Southern Italy

And, it is also ‘Stunning’: It is just 74 ft above sea level, allowing diners to watch the waves lap the shores below

The dramatic view over the sea is best viewed from one of the dimly-lit tables for two that sweep along the cave’s edge.

MENU

As they take in the sea view, they can enjoy dishes such as Thai squid and grilled garlic prawns with glasses of Fiano di Avellino(and so much more) – at more than $100 a head.   Right here:



World class: Dishes include Thai squid and grilled garlic prawns, and meals can cost $100 a head

And if diners want to work up an appetite before the meal, they can meander through the narrow streets of the medieval town, built on sheer cliffs with scattered white buildings and natural caves.

The setting also provided a feast for the eyes for local nobility during grand banquets at the restaurant as far back as the 1700s.

The grotta – Italian for ‘cave’ – is part of the Grotta Palazzese hotel, which is located above and built from local stone. The restaurant is open from May to October.

Breakfast/Brunch/Dinner at Haunted New Orleans’ Myrtle Plantation… Would you, really?

The Myrtles Plantation is a historic home and former antebellum plantation in St. Francisville, LouisianaUnited States. Built in 1796 by General David Bradford, it is touted as “one of America’s most haunted homes.”

The plantation house is rumored to be on top of an ancient Tunica Indian burial ground. It is currently a bed and breakfast, and offers historical and mystery tours. Touted as “one of America’s most haunted homes”, the plantation is supposedly the home of at least 12 ghosts.[12] It is often reported that 10 murders occurred in the house,[12] but historical records only indicate the murder of William Winter.[6]William Drew Winter is also a very popular character in the plantation. He was an attorney who lived in the plantation from 1865 until 1871. He was shot by a stranger. After being shot, he staggered inside the house and died trying to climb the stairs. He died on the 17th step of the stairs. Until today, visitors, as well as employees in the hotel, still hear his dying footsteps.[13]

In 2002, Unsolved Mysteries filmed a segment about the alleged hauntings at the plantation. According to host Robert Stack, the production crew experienced technical difficulties during the production of the segment. The Myrtles was also featured on a 2005 episode of Ghost Hunters.[14][15] The TV series Ghost Adventures also filmed an episode there.

GroundsEdit

The current plantation landscape is centered on a large pond that features a small island centered with a gazebo accessed by a bridge. To the rear of the main house is the oldest structure on the grounds. Now known as the General’s Store, this was where General Bradford lived while the main house was being built. Currently it is used as the gift shop, laundry facilities, plantation offices and guest breakfast spot.[4] To the south is another structure that houses a restaurant. The two ancillary buildings are connected to the main house by a 5,000 square feet (460 m2) old brick courtyard. Scattered elsewhere on the grounds are modern wooden cottages available to guests.

Would you venture an overnight at this frightful haunted plantation, for a delightful Cajun breakfast or delicious Sunday brunch? Maybe you can be taken simply for a slice of the plantation’s yummy cheesecake.
