This weeks tips and tidbits:
London: The Courtyard at 51 is celebrating summer with a series of musical performances. That would be the courtyard at the 5-star 51-Buckingham Gate, Taj Suites and Residences, -- the posh digs formerly known as St. James Court -- tucked away on a side street between Buckingham Palace and Westminster.
Tickets for the musical events are priced from 75L and include a three-course dinner and signature ‘51’ cocktail.
Hawaii: If you are planning a visit to Hawaii think about going for Oahu’s 2011 Food and Wine Festival being held in a number of locations including Waikiki Edition, Halekulani and Hilton Hawaiian Village, Sept. 29 – Oct.1, 2011.
We can only imagine the culinary wonders that will be created by chefs from the U.S., Canada, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia will take part. For ticket information, click the link above.
Symi, Greece: This comes from Symi Dream, one of our favorite blogs written about one of our favorite Greek islands:
The Symi Dreamers Exhibition runs through October 2011 at the gallery of the same name as the blog. Artists who are visiting the island are invited to bring a piece of art to display that has been inspired by the island. (Contest rules can be found by clicking the link above). And if you make it to the island (which, drat, we won’t this year) stop by the Gallery and meet James and Neil. They also offer photo walks of the islands – which will be high on my list when we return.
Symi Dream is a great source of information about activities and life on this island, just a short ferry ride from Rhodes.
