Germantown Commissary

Where I first enjoyed Southern Barbecue many years ago... and I continue the tradition to this day.
It is a very popular spot located in the heart of Germantown, Tennessee.

Princeton University

We traveled to New Jersey over Thanksgiving holiday, and were fortunate enough to visit the campus of Princeton University. I was fascinated by the history of the place and by the beautiful architecture in the campus. The fall colors added to the show.
We had lunch at Lahiere's, a great restaurant where Albert Einstein used to hang out, and we sat next to his favorite table, under his portrait. Ok, I felt about one-inch tall, but still, it was a great experience. My thanks to my brother and my sister-in-law, the hosts.

Rum Boogie Cafe

The name says it all. This is a classic spot for great food and great music in the heart of Beale Street, Memphis. One among many.
The original ink sketch is shown, along with the final version which includes a light watercolor wash.

Lucaya Beach, Bahamas

This unassuming bar is in the Island of Grand Bahama. Right after our beer, we had to run for it, because a tropical storm came out of nowhere and broke up the party.
