For The Weekenders: Upscale Italian Road Trips, Sexy Beach Front Bungalows, Rugged Alaskan Heli-Fishing

It’s the weekend again and it’s time to think about things outside of work. It’s also been pretty hot lately – so when I think of summer and lounging and relaxing…the first things that come to mind are ice cool, refreshing drinks (mojito maybe? Or a nice lemongrass tea?), long summer drives, shady spots to relax in under the clear blue sky, and fishing – so much fishing (I like boats – so what).

Which is precisely why I’ve tailored this For The Weekenders for such things. You read last week’s For The Weekenders post – and if you liked that one then well, it’s time to take another step into my ridiculously epic outlook on enjoying life this week as well. Enjoy.

For The Weekenders: Upscale Italian Road Trips, Sexy Beach Front Bungalows, Rugged Alaskan Heli-Fishing

So it’s summer – the perfect time for holidays and travel (though personally, I think anytime is the perfect time for either). While you could do the next few things I’m about to suggest by yourself, I’m gonna say that a) they’re so much fun words wouldn’t be able to describe the experience and b) think of these as perfect opportunities to treat someone to something special.

Or just treat yourself. And make it look like you’re treating someone (hey it beats looking like a lonely rich bastard/bitch – or does it?). Either way, if you plan on treating anyone, you’ve gotta make some proper effort – so let’s start racking up those frequent flyer miles shall we?

Depending on what you’re into, you’ve got a few of options – so it’s first stop Italy.

As in, touring Italy in a stupidly high-priced Ferrari. Now wait – I know, I’ve mentioned before I’m usually not into luxury sports vehicles, more of a custom made or classics fan, but I’ve also mentioned in the past that there are some things that are just too good to pass up – this being one of them.

So here’s how it’s gonna happen – you’ll grab your sexy someone, and book a 3 day, Italia in Ferrari self-drive tour with the guys over at Red Travel…but don’t worry about getting on a regular airline, with regular, sweaty, depressed people, or fat, bald, miserable businessmen in first-class.

No instead, you’re taken care of with a private jet at your disposal to come pick you up – in either Paris, London, Frankfurt, or Moscow – and drop you off to Florence International Airport.

So all you have to do is sit back, sip [name your favourite drink here], and listen to the sounds of Lounge Fantasia, while staring out the window at white, fluffy clouds, before joining the mile high club (and if you’ve already joined then hey, good for you, slugger).

Fuck these peasants.

That’s not the only thing the tour includes though – with a 5 star hotel suite for accommodation, private car for checking out the area/transfer service from/to the airport, being able to pick and choose your Ferrari for the tour, and the ability to tailor your trip even further to your liking – well, it’s a bit like Christmas arriving early in a tiny, red little box.

So you’ll touch down in Florence – then what? Well after being driven to your hotel, it’s the perfect time to shower, power nap, and hit the gym – before hitting Florence for some sight-seeing via private car.

Starfishing optional.

Towards the end of the night I’d recommend you avoid having too big of a sexy party – you’ll need the sleep for the tour tomorrow and hey, no one likes someone who drives like a baby drunk off Benadryl.

Alright, you managed to fend off the bartender offering you another drink and your weekend accessory pawing at you, good job. Now’s the moment you’ve been waiting for: picking your very own Ferrari to drive around like the boss you are. *Drum roll*….

I feel like the host of Let’s Make a Deal. Or was it the Price is Right? Just…I feel like a game show host, for the millennials who don’t get it.

So you’ll take your pick – the Ferrari 488 Spider, California T, 458 Speciale, or 458 Spider. Any one of them will be a thrill to ride, backed by a 100% guarantee you’ll have a massive sexy party that same night.

Her: I’m gonna marry hiiiiim. Him: I’m getting laaaaiiiid…also married…probably….maybe….*shrugs* meh, who knows.

From there, it’s hitting the road and touring around San Gimignano, Siena, and other sexy sounding Italian places you might not have heard of before, with route plans that have more S-curves, hair pins, and sharp corners than you can shake a stick at (because driving in a straight line is just boring).

“Love your curves and all your edges.”

After a full day of driving you can either let the fun end there (why would you though?) – or if you wanted things to be more interesting – take advantage of the tailoring options you picked including (but certainly not limited to) yachting, hot air-ballooning, and more. There are literally loads of tours to choose from so don’t be a boring bastard, live a little – that money isn’t going to spend itself (but the tax man will if you don’t).

But maybe all that’s too stuffy for you – maybe you just want something chill, low key, somewhere where you can’t be found (angry exes can just be the absolute bane of existence sometimes), somewhere to go alone (or not).

So you’ll opt for a nice little secluded island on the on the Sian Ka’an biosphere coastline (read: Mexico) where you’ll book a wonderful little beach front bungalow with KanXuk Blue Maya Resort, complete with a porch to sit out on and sip mojitos while watching that model you chatted up at Cancun International Airport emerge from the water Baywatch-style.

I recommend Nojol (complete with private garden)…but Lak’in does a pretty good job too.

They’ve got some pretty epic activities available, including whale shark tours – or swimming with sea turtles, for those of you that are frightened by the word “shark”.

If you just feel like a chill stay though there’s a spa and fully stocked bar, so you can sit and enjoy a nice cold one while looking out at the sunset and having the backdrop song “I Think I’m Gonna Like it Here” to Elvis Presley’s Fun in Acapulco play in your head.

Similar to White Desert in the last For The Weekenders post, and considering there are only 18 villas and beach front bungalows combined, it’s still pretty nice and quiet with minimal worries about unpleasant human contact…meaning plenty of privacy for when you want to get away from it all.

But maybe private jets, Ferraris, and beaches still aren’t your thing (you picky S.O.B.)…and maybe you’re the more…outdoorsy type. So this last one’s for the rugged, adventurous, but sensitive soul type – the ones that can wrestle and catch a fish with their bare hands, but secretly listen to Whitney Houston’s “I’m Every Woman” in their bathroom with the air vent on at full blast to drown out you singing along in the shower every morning (you know who you are).

Then I suggest you prepare yourself for mountains, wildlife, and a bit of classic heli-fishing at Tsaina Lodge.

…the heli-fishing bit kind of threw you, didn’t it? Well to answer your question no, I have not been drinking nor am I tripping balls – heli-fishing is a real thing, and no lodge does it better than Tsaina Lodge in Alaska (though I am enjoying some lovely coconut water at the moment…*sips*).

*whips fishing rod back in an attempt to perfectly place near group of fish…hooks pilot’s eye by mistake instead…*

Along with heli-fishing there’s also heli-hiking – but if you’re not interested in anything with the word “heli” in it, that’s fine too – though both are heli-cool (get it? Heli-cool? HELLA cool? no? really? god you’re slow…keep up).

They’ve got regular fly fishing for when you want to be a normal, boring person….wildlife viewing where you can potentially snap a picture of a grizzly bear and insult his grizzly wife (if you’ve had one too many melon balls) at a safe distance then brag to your friends who stayed behind at the lodge about it later…

Dude, I can’t believe you called that bear’s wife a hairy bitch…so not cool man. Never going nature watching with you again.

…or for the more sensible among us, you can just opt for mountain biking. There are a plethora of activities going on at Tsaina, all of which you can explore yourself.

Once you’re done exploring you can shoot some pool at the bar, before being tricked by your newfound Alaskan friend to ring the naval bell near said bar….which basically means you’ve gotta buy a round for everyone in the place (an Alaskan tradition, no less).

Or if you’re clever enough to avoid being fooled, you could always grab some sushi, Tsaina style.

Once you’re done fighting over that last piece of tuna sushi, you’ll probably end up heading back to your room (with or without that *special* company you brought along for the trip) – complete with a Tempur-pedic mattress and soft, cosy bath robes.

For The Weekenders: High Flying in Dubai, Secret Tanzanian Getaways, Tucked Away Antarctic Luxury…

Well it’s Thursday, the kind of wind down point in the week where people focus less on work and more on enjoying themselves. I hope everyone is having a great week and are in a traveling kind of mood – because that’s what this For The Weekenders is all about. So while it’s time for me to dust off my keyboard and flex the old writing muscles, sit back and prepare yourselves for what’s in store. Enjoy…

There’s a point some people reach in their lives where they feel a need to connect with themselves on a higher level…which usually comes with a requirement to “get away from it all.”

On the other hand, in a world where a “Culture of Busyness” has emerged (where “busy,” but not necessarily productive, is becoming a status quo), there seems to be an increasing trend where some tend to view being busy as a bragging right.

I just call it being dumb.

So for the more sensible among us, fear not – amidst this delusional madness, sanity still exists. Yes, you can escape from it all after a smart day’s work, in the most discreet and ninja-like fashion, and fortunately there are places like Dubai that catch my drift and understand exactly how to get away in style.

You know those movies you see where some ridiculously well dressed person of influence saunters onto a helipad and flies away at his or her whim? Well, if you don’t feel like going through the process of buying your own helicopter (pfft. lame.), don’t worry, Dubai RTA (Roads & Transportation Agency) has got you covered – at least in the summer they will (be patient).

Imagine finishing up that last bit of work and wanting to slip away incognito, and at the touch of a button having your own mini chopper show up minutes later. Oh and by chopper, I mean drone – as in drone taxi.

The elusive promises we once saw in Back to The Future Part II are nearly here, compadres. With room for a small suitcase and a travel range of up to 50km it’s the perfect way to go from work to holiday mode, while avoiding that awkward guy at work who always wants to carpool in a taxi with you.

Though if you intend on having that special someone tag along (or, you know, temporary someone) think again – it only seats one, so they’ll have to take a taxi to a mutual meet point, like regular people. Sorry.

So you managed to escape your work day early, now what? Off to the airport, obviously.

But where?

Well that depends. Do you fancy somewhere cold? Somewhere warm? Do you even care? The point here is to get away from it all, right?

Either way, you’ve got options…but seeing as it’s never a good idea to subject yourself to radical temperature changes, let’s start with somewhere warm. For this one, I’d definitely recommend taking along that sexy someone you like having around.

Because, y’know, spending time all alone on a private island is just no fun (what? don’t act so surprised).

So here’s how it’s gonna go down – after packing your suitcase with some stylish travel essentials and ringing up your weekend accessory, you’ll charter a flight(s) to, let’s say Mafia Airport in Tanzania (it’s waaay less dodgy than it sounds). Feel free to look around Mafia island upon arrival while you’re at it.

You’ll then have to arrange either a boat or helicopter to take you to the nice, private luxury Thanda Island, where you’ll have booked (for a week or so) prior to arrival – well, the entire island.

For the musicians they’ve got instruments where you can play your little heart out. For the fitness crowd that don’t skip workouts even if on holiday there’s a gym, and for the indulgent but sometimes lazy bastards in all of us there’s a pizza oven and outdoor BBQ for when hunger/hanger strikes.

Because standard Western baths suck. Live a little.

Post-bath you could have a nice bonfire, serenade that sexy someone you brought with you, and if you’re still hungry, enjoy a final meal in the ever so colourful and seductive dining area…before heading off to the bedroom for dessert.

Darn, they just keep giving us complimentary bottles of wine, honey….*stealth tips waiter, shoos away quickly*…

But maybe you don’t want to go to somewhere warm, especially if you live in some place like Dubai. Maybe you wanna check out somewhere cooler. Much cooler.

Ever had fantasies of shipping someone you don’t like off to the South Pole? Yeah stop doing that – there’s a luxury getaway there now. You’d be doing them a favour. No literally.

Instead, opt for heading there yourself – or I should more accurately say the Antarctica, yourself. You said you wanted to get away from it all – and White Desert is the perfect place to do it. You might want to bundle down for this, and warm the blood with some strong spirit.

That is a damn small red carpet…wait what is this shit it’s not even red.

So what does it offer? Imagine if the adventure of the outdoors and luxury bumped into each other on the street one day, only to lock eyes and realise it was love at first sight. Well if the two had a baby, it would be White Desert. While not as exclusive as Thanda Island, the camp does have a very small maximum capacity limit for guests – meaning you can still wind down while being aware of the presence of other human beings around.

12 other human beings to be exact – including yourself.

So there’s a hybrid combination going on here – the adventurous spirit of the great outdoors, with the comfort and feel good tingliness of luxury, all bundled into one neat little package.

So tingly.

This one you can kind of go either way with – by flying solo and booking a spot for yourself, and yourself only – or again, bringing along your weekend accessory to help keep you warm at night.

Let’s just push these beds a little closer together. For obvious safety reasons. Which ones? Well I mean…I’m concerned about you…falling…between that little gap *points* right there…in the middle of the night.

There’s plenty of activities to do here for the brave among us, from rope walking, Nunatak climbing (a rock that sticks out of the ice – educate yourself), lake traversing (WOOO), ice climbing, and probably my favourite – ice tunnels (made from temperature changes and freezing oceans). Perfect opportunities to show off your rugged, fearless spirit.

I guess this is how Moses felt.

For the more faint of heart, there are activities which don’t require any great amount of strenuous effort – such as trekking and the like where you can focus more on conversation with that special someone (or, you know, other people) you brought along…just try to stay with the group and not get separated.

Hello??? Grace? Tom? …..Anybody?…..GRACE?!

If you don’t feel like doing anything (you lazy bastard), there’s always the lounge area to wind down in – complete with a library for the little bookworms in all of us…or a space to charge your electronics and catch up on social media (why would you though? Unless it’s to check this dope blog).

They’ve got wine, too.

If you’re hungry after all that adventuring…or for some, lazying around all day…the camp also serves up three course meals (by spirited, magical chefs) daily, so you can keep your caloric intake and expenditure on point…or just stuff your face.

For The Weekenders: Three Cocktails That Scream Power…

What you drink says a lot about you…the vodka and club soda for the gym rat – the gin and tonic for the health conscious upper-middle class socialite – the Cosmo for the OH-EM-GEE sorority girl who just loves watching Sex and The City …but sometimes, all jokes aside, what you drink really can say something important about you in crucial settings.

Last week’s For The Weekenders was pretty epic, but I wanted to kind of tone down this week’s with something everyone can do over the weekend if they choose to – drink. So here’s three cocktails that scream power, dominance, and that you’ve got your head in the game – whether it’s business or pleasure. Enjoy.

For The Weekenders: Three Cocktails That Scream Power…

So it’s the weekend. You’re out and about flying high because of a project you just completed and got commended for, or a business deal you just closed. Either way, you want that celebratory drink you’ve been dreaming about since Sunday – and dammit, you’re going to have it.

Maybe you’ll be having it alone – maybe with some of your closest team members…or maybe, just maybe, that pretty little thing you’ve always been trying to chat up and finally got a shot at because of your recent victory.

Either way, if you’re looking to have a drink that reinforces the power you’ve just displayed and claimed, that drink must be a Rusty Nail. Which consists of…

1.5 oz Scotch
1.5 oz Drambuie
Twist of Orange Peel
Rolled Cinnamon Stick

Grab an old-fashioned glass near filled with ice cubes – then pour the scotch and Drambuie in there, stir, garnish with orange peel and a cinnamon stick…indulge.

Bold flavour. Smooth with a kick…and a pinch of cinnamy spice.

This next one’s for those of you who want something a little more familiar – something that shows that you’re low key, but also have some gears turning up there in that noggin of yours…bit of mystery.

The Manhattan is the perfect drink for when you decide to hit up a place where the bartender is just that – a bartender, and not necessarily the type you can throw fancy names at (not saying that, “one Rusty Nail please” is anything fancy).

I like it second best to a Rusty Nail, due to the sheer fact it’s a well known classic and cures that sweet tooth when you fancy something a little more…fruity.

.75 oz Sweet Vermouth
2.5 oz Bourbon Whiskey
Bit of Angostura Bitters
Single Maraschino Cherry
Twist of Orange Peel

There’s two ways to do this – the quick, dirty, I just want a drink way, or the let’s be classy and neat as fuck way. Your choice. So…

The Quick and Dirty: Grab an Old Fashioned Glass, fill it with ice, throw in all the ingredients and stir. Take the cherry and orange peel, chuck it in there too, and voila – the easiest Manhattan you’ll ever make.

The Let’s be Classy and Neat as Fuck: Grab a mixing glass (better yet, get your bartender to grab a mixing glass) – then pour in all the ingredients over about 3 ice cubes in that puppy. Stir it carefully as not to bruise the spirits – don’t let it cloud. Then grab a chilled cocktail glass – put the cherry in there. Take a strainer, and strain the mix over the cherry. Grab the orange peel, take the cut edge, and run it over the rim of the glass to get the oils on there. Twist it further over the drink to release more oils, but don’t put it in the mix.

Toast to life, and enjoy.

Alright, homestretch. This one’s for when you feel like something cool and refreshing after nearly sweating your power attire out as the anticipation rose in you while you saw yourself cruising to victory. This is for those moments when you want something that’ll refresh you, cool you down, and bring a sense of Jesus god I want to get smashed but do it in a suave way to the table.

The Mint Julep cocktail is the perfect mixed beverage of choice. It’s powerful, it’s sweet, it’s refreshing, it taste damn good, and most importantly – it’s one of those drinks that you can feel comfortable enough ordering for the other party, with a warm smile and a reassuring “this is one drink you’ll absolutely love.”

2.5 oz Bourbon Whiskey
1 tsp Powdered Sugar
2 tsp Water
4 FRESH Sprigs of Mint – if you don’t know what a “sprig” is – that’s 4-6 mint leaves – the true definition of “minty fresh” (see what I did there? Yeah.)

Take all this deliciousness and start with the mint leaves – tear them to release their natural oils, then muddle with the powdered sugar and water in a Collins glass. Add some crushed ice, about halfway – then add the bourbon. Stir a bit. Add more ice, and use one of those mint sprigs I mentioned earlier to garnish.

For The Weekenders: Indian Oceans, Costa Rican Villas, Upscale Hippies

There are times in life when humans need a complete wind down period – no noise, no everyday “static,” no distractions…in order to truly get back to finding – or discovering a new part of – themselves.

The dreamers and the entrepreneurs know this, but only the few strong and wise entrepreneurs that are dreamers and dream in their wake understand this. It’s why extravagant holiday getaways are made, catering to your every need. It’s why those dreamers take the time out to take such a large part, a large image of their own dreams, and then make it a reality for YOU to discover and want so much of a part of, you practically throw your money at them in sheer ecstasy of the thought….

….but let’s put aside ecstasy for a moment – this For The Weekenders is all about calming your nerves – and with this line up, there’s no way you won’t be able to. Enjoy.

It’s the weekend. You’ve had a hard week at work. Being a business owner or supervisor of some sort is no easy task – so you deserve time to kick back and relax (unless you’re putting on weight – in that case, gym then holiday.) – so what’s the first thing you do?

Stop treating that laptop of yours like a work horse and give it a break – allow it to book a nice little getaway trip for you and [insert S.O.’s name or recently new found fling’s description here] that’ll help you unwind from your daily stresses.

Naturally, your first thought is Maldives.

Oh, it wasn’t?

Well it is now.

For The Weekenders Indian Oceans Costa Rican Villas Upscale Hippies, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Indian Oceans Costa Rican Villas Upscale Hippies, For The Weekenders Indian Oceans Costa Rican Villas Upscale Hippies Rego's Life, Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, Maalifushi by Como, Villa Manzu, Botanique Hotel and Spa, Costa Rica Getaways, Brazil Getaways, Travel, Holiday, Brazil, Costa Rica, Maldives

More specifically Maalifushi by Como – a sweet little getaway spot that helps you melt away all your worries with just a few days at one of their suites and villas.

This is one of those places for when you want top class spa treatment while being surrounded by copious amounts of too-good-to-be-true blue oceanfront scenery.

It’s one of those places where you go to get not just a run of the mill spa treatment, but unique, unforgettable, personalised service – service so personal they know that that little black mark just above your left bum cheek isn’t a birthmark, but in fact spawned from that one time you were almost going to get that tattoo you’d regret for the rest of your life.

….though that level of personal probably stemmed from one too many cocktails and a slip of the tongue.

But honestly, do you care?

Not really – because after awakening in your suite, you’ll be too busy receiving invigorating facials and Taksu massages.

Word of advice – take the villa. The Maalifushi Water Villa.

Why? Because…

Look at all this gorgeousness.

Seriously – with it’s own private pool and sundeck, and your very own butler on call (Alfred – let’s call him Alfred), there’s no reason not to.

The villa’s got plenty of light, luxurious bathroom features, baby-butt-soft-to-the-touch bed linen, and enough amenities to make you feel like royalty during your stay before being politely slapped back to reality that no, although your full name does sound rather sophisticated, there is no royal blood running through those veins.

Sorry about that.

But at least Maalifushi by Como made you feel like it.

Let’s say your definition of relaxing isn’t winding down with massages you’ve never heard of, or secluded over water villas, though – let’s say you like a bit of adventure to blow off steam after a good amount of hard work.

That’s cool – I hear you…as does Villa Manzu, cozily tucked away in Costa Rica.

While Villa Manzu also prides itself in it’s secluded 30,000 sq. ft. getaway, they don’t skimp when it comes to staying active and manage to implement the best of both worlds at their 8 suite estate.

….and I’m not kidding when I say estate.

The place is massive with loads of places to unwind – and wind up – and the activities offered are more than you can shake a stick at or count on two hands.

So whenever you fancy a bit of rock climbing after lounging in a hammock for the better half of the morning, or feel the need to sober up from all the choice wine offered by doing a bit of waterfall exploration, they’ve got it all waiting and ready for you at the snap of your fingers.

….just don’t actually snap your fingers at anyone. That could really piss a few people off.

In terms of which suite to pick, check out The Madera Suite:

Though fairly obvious, it’s gorgeous, with an ideal location due to the fact it’s tucked away in its own little corner. Pair that with the fact each and every suite comes with its own little butler (double win), each bathroom is decked out in marble, cigars and wine are always on the ready, and the villas chef will make you whatever it is you desire – whether it’s steak for breakfast or crepes for dinner – and you’ve got yourself a valid excuse to take “business” trips more often for the “greater good” of the company.

You know.

International Business R&D…all that fun stuff.

Pay attention carefully to this next one, because it’s for all you hippies-at-heart out there who graduated from sandals and hemp clothing to linen and a more refined way of keeping things “natural.”

If you’re looking for a place that manages to integrate modern day luxury into the backdrops of nature, look no further – Botanique’s already on the ball and got you covered.

Botanique Hotel & Spa is somewhat of an anomaly – the kind of thing that once you find you want to share and brag about, yet keep exclusive and hold onto forever.

Smack in the heart of Bairro dos Mellos, this is the place to go for those nature lovers out there, who want hiking in the afternoons, and a nice hot shower in the evenings plus decent rest with the zero percent possibility of being attacked by a bear because “dammit Jake, you left that leftover lox and bagels out instead of burying it, you lazy son of a bitch.”

It’s the kind of place you go to when you don’t want the sound of traffic or the annoying pitch of car horns, but instead the calming effects of sweet melodies from surrounding rivers.

I’m not kidding.

There are no motorized vehicles allowed here.

To top it off, the architecture is so unique in the sense that the place has been built off of its own natural resources – right down to the food with farm to plate dining, spa treatments with tropical rain saunas, and pretty epic wooden beams aged 100+ years old.

Oh – and did I mention for a mild head trip the floating chamber they’ve got with underwater sounds and image projections?

Yeah.

One of a kind.

With Botanique, that little hippie flame inside you has no chance of dying out.

Shine on, friend.

As always…

Stay awesome.

For The Weekenders: Skydiving Sandwiches, Lobster Shacks, Late Night Wings…

Lately fitness wise I’ve been getting ready for a bulking season (lost a LOT of gains due to stress) – I’m naturally slender and have always been athletic, so bulking during summer season doesn’t really hurt me in the slightest.

So all this week it’s been a grand tour of the pure deliciousness one would call food…and my God has it been delicious. When you really think about it, eating food is an actual chore, just like bathing daily or brushing your teeth – but mother of God did nature make it an enjoyable one. Enjoy.

For The Weekenders: Skydiving Sandwiches, Lobster Shacks, Late Night Wings…

For The Weekenders Skydiving Sandwiches Lobster Shacks Late Night Wings, For The Weekenders Skydiving Sandwiches Lobster Shacks Late Night Wings Rego's Life, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Skydiving Sandwiches Lobster Shacks Late Night Wings, Rego's Life, For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, jify's, jify's restaurant, jafflechutes, north river lobster company, north river lobster

Just imagine for a second if eating had to be done without any enjoyment? No flavors? No aromas? It’d be pretty….boring. But alas, this is exactly why it wasn’t made so – three times a day of that would make life hellish.

So just a heads up to everyone – although fitness is discussed quite a lot over at the official site, don’t forget that eating clean doesn’t mean you have to eat bland – and on cheat days, don’t ever forget to ENJOY the food you eat to maximum extent.

Let’s start with North River Lobster Co. – in short, these guys are AWESOME. Intended to be an escape from Manhattan’s hustle and bustle, North River Lobster Company accomplishes exactly that. In saying that, this isn’t your typical sit down and order restaurant. The food is beyond comparison.

For starters, it’s on a boat – scratch that, it is a boat. A boat that offers up little adventures by sailing around the Hudson. How many lobster shacks do you know that offer up that?

Secondly, the menus are dotted around the boat, on the pier, and online (aaaaand click here.)…

….once you’ve decided on what to eat, you hit up the bartender and order. Like in tennis, a little runner delivers your food and presto – time to eat. While keeping their menu simple and to the point, lobster isn’t the only thing they offer – but I do recommend checking out their lobster roll.

For The Weekenders Skydiving Sandwiches Lobster Shacks Late Night Wings, For The Weekenders Skydiving Sandwiches Lobster Shacks Late Night Wings Rego's Life, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Skydiving Sandwiches Lobster Shacks Late Night Wings, Rego's Life, For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, jify's, jify's restaurant, jafflechutes, north river lobster company, north river lobster

Or if you’re a big eater and want seconds, grab a North River Burger, Grilled Chicken Sandwich (don’t let the plain name fool you), or Shrimp Po Boy. Wash it all down with one of their many alcoholic (or non-alcoholic) drinks and top it off with a slice of New York Style Cheesecake (obviously).

But let’s say you’re really not a seafood fan in general or just want something a little more home-style – then I’d say if you’re in Melbourne and up to party, take a gamble and check out Jafflechute’s party happening on July 19th of this year (2014).

I know, you’re probably wondering – what the f*ck is a Jafflechute? Well, if you got the awesome opportunity to try them while they were in New York, a Jafflechute, my friend, is (literally) a heaven-sent grilled cheese (with some possible suprises thrown in) sandwich delivered via parachute to an appointed location.

So here’s the formal description of how it works:

You order up a sandwich (with a twist) of your choice, pay them via PayPal, then like a Mission Impossible agent they give you a location and a time. Wherever X marks the spot is where your lunch will be delivered (somehow, this reminds me of anvils and Looney Tunes.).

So you stand there, gazing into the blue sky (jafflechutes are only delivered during good weather – naturally) until finally you see it – a neatly packaged, carefully thought out little parachute heading your way –

all it takes now is a bit of hand-eye coordination on your part to allow the gently falling parcel of food to fall into your palms. Look up, smile, wave, and carry on about your day as innocent bystanders look on in awe wondering what on earth just happened – and how it can happen to them.

Seriously.

If you’re in Australia go to the party.

Book your tickets.

It’s alright though if you’re not the traveling type – or you just can’t be bothered with a long ass flight. Maybe you just want a great place to go after drinks with friends.

For more drinks with more friends.

And food. Obviously food. You’ve gotta sober up at some point.

This is the go to place not just for late night, but all things food related. A Caribbean themed restaurant with a Caribbean roots founder, you can only expect boundless explosion after explosion of flavour from this place.

For late night eats and drinks, order up some Jerk Wings and Plantain Chips with Mango Guacamole, then pair it with an Old Friend – an Old Friend being a drink, comprising of Cachaça, Ginger, Tamarind Extract, and Angostura Bitters.

(Or, if you’ve still got that “old friend’s” number, don’t hesitate to call him or her, either…*wink*)

If that doesn’t suit your fancy they’ve got plenty of other options as well, so don’t sweat it.

I’d also highly recommend you go there for the music as well, over at Cameo Gallery conveniently placed right behind the place. Tickets are priced reasonably and offer up a great selection, like “The Future Scares Me,” “TUTU,” and Tamara Davidson tonight at 8:00 P.M.

If that’s not enough to get you to come check out Jify’s I don’t know what is (also, you’re missing out on a very epic part of life).

As always…

Stay awesome.

For The Weekenders: Bar Essentials Part 1

Was out celebrating a friend’s birthday last night and it got me thinking…

The key to a good house party is an even better, proper stocked home bar. Often I enjoy having good friends over rather than heading out all the time. It’s a bit more of a personal experience, and really saves the headache of making sure everyone sobers up and gets home alright. Plus – you can make drinks the bar tender may have never even heard of – and not have to concern yourself with paying top dollar for them.

…because clearly, he thinks that anything original has to be worth more than your first born – either that, or he doesn’t know what to price this masterpiece you just invented on the fly.

So I thought over the next few weeks I’d do a series, starting with the first batch of essentials that are easiest to get your hands on. Ready? Let’s go.

For The Weekenders: Bar Essentials Part 1

First thing’s first – in the drinking world, soda matters. But what type of soda you use matters more….not everything can be mixed with cola. So these are what I have stocked at all times:

  • Ginger Beer – Great for mixing with absinthe.
  • Tonic – Excellent for when you want that “low-calorie” drink for a strict fitness regime.
  • Lemon Lime Soda – Adds a good amount of zest.
  • Club Soda – For when you wanna keep things really light – but I hardly use this one.
  • Cola – Skip the diet junk…it does more harm than good.

This is the real deal here lads.

Next thing – juice is your friend. It doesn’t always have to be used for “fruity” or “feminine” drinks either. Juice is a really great mixer and if you know what you’re doing, can have you hitting the sauce harder than you’d expected without even realizing you’re drinking an “adult” drink. Here’s what I like to keep stocked…

  • Orange Juice – Chock full of that “vitamin C.”
  • Grapefruit Juice – Rim the glass with sugar and you’ve got a nice sweet/sour combination.
  • Cranberry Juice – A standard for the classic “Cape Codder.”
  • Tomato Juice – When you’re in the mood for a Bloody Mary.
  • Pineapple Juice – Tangy. Sweet.
  • Lemon Juice. – Common essential.
  • Lime Juice – Other common essential.

Last thing – The seemingly unconventional but vital others go here. These are the ones that make all the difference in those drinks you like to take off the beaten path of your typical assembly line. Stock your home bar with these and you’ll start to earn your stars…

  • Water – Yes, water…and not to sober up.
  • Simple Syrup – If you haven’t already, get yourself a bar tending 101 book – this mixer is more important than you think.
  • Sour Mix – For when you don’t always want things sweet.
  • Bitters – More bitters the better.
  • Coffee – For when you want the charge with the alcohol “high”…okay I lied – for when you can’t make up your damn mind.
  • Grenadine – For when you wanna get fancy – or when you really start paying attention on how to make real drinks.
  • Half & Half – Pretty obvious.
  • Milk – For the non-lactose intolerant.
  • Tabasco Sauce – Spice things up.
  • Worcestershire Sauce – Goes beyond food.
  • Tea – Now you know how grandma stayed so young.

….and that’s all there is to it. Keep your home bar stocked with these, and before you know it a good night in will revolve around more than just vodka, jagermeister, and Pepsi. A great way to make sure your best buddies or new guests have awesome drinks, and an even better way to impress that date you invited over while giving her a brief but fascinating history lesson during the process of making his/her drink.

Hope everyone’s having an awesome weekend.

As always…

Stay awesome.

For The Weekenders: Top 3 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas – Rego Style…

It’s that time of the year again….Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and many of you are still probably trying to figure out the best gifts to get for your mums (obviously), wives, and mother-in-laws. Let me give you some sound advice from experience – if you’re thinking of flowers and chocolates – don’t. You’d only be begging for a slap. It’s time to get original.

Time to think outside the box.

Which is why I’m here to help you.

Pay attention, yeah? This is gonna go quick.

For The Weekenders: Top 3 Mother’s Day Gift Ideas – Rego Style…

For The Weekenders Top 3 Mother's Day Gift Ideas Rego Style, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Top 3 Mother's Day Gift Ideas Rego Style, For The Weekenders Top 3 Mother's Day Gift Ideas Rego Style Rego's Life, Rego's Life, For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, Michael Kors, Kensington Proximo, Mother's Day, Jewelry, Michael Kors Mini Runway Chronograph Bracelet Watch, Mother's Day Gift Ideas, Mother's Day Gifts

Let’s start with the most important…your own mum.

By now, unless you’re a teenager reading this well, you’re mum – she’s pretty up there. In age that is. So you wanna get her something special…and I don’t mean something she can get at discount during Senior Citizen Sundays, either.

She’s a special lady – so you’ve gotta get her a special gift. Something timeless, something that breathes emotion – something that she’ll still use or talk about (in a good way) five years from now. After all – she housed you rent free for 9 months, changed her diet completely to absurd tastes, and went through ungodly things a female human being experiences that are only mentioned in hushed whispers. So…*shrugs* she’s kind of a big deal.

I had a very big head.

So you kind of wanna get her a big gift. I don’t mean in the literal size sense – but something that really has a sparkle and a bang to it. Something that says “I’m sorry for those times you wanted to pull your hair out with me, but look what a great functioning adult your kid turned out to be!”

That’s what mum’s wanna hear.

At least you’d hope they do.

Which is why if anything, you’ll want to get her and Eternity Circle Necklace – with an epic quote card.

Nothing says “thanks” like quoting George Washington – apparently, that man really knew his shit when it came to charming family members.

The necklace is handmade to order, and comprised entirely of sterling silver, but they also have gold if she’s more into the yellow stuff. Pair it with a gift tag that says “with love,” and a wise-crack card chock-full of humour, and you’ve got yourself one hell of a Mothers Day gift idea. If this isn’t a great way to say “thanks” to her for all she’s done well – I don’t know what is.

Present it to her during Mother’s Day Dinner gathering at that one fine restaurant you picked, and prepare to be showered with embarrassing hugs and kisses.

(If single, be prepared to be showered with attractive waitresses/waiters that think you’re just the sweetest thing ever for doing all that for your mother. Have that dialing finger ready – phone numbers will be abundant.)

In saying that – like yours, other people’s mums want to be appreciated, too.

If you’re married, the general assumption is you’ve got a mother-in-law.

You may love her, you may hate her, you may want to give her the best gift ever, or possibly throw darts at her…but dammit man/woman, if there’s one thing that’ll score you huge brownie points with the missus/mister, it’s remembering to get a gift for THEIR mom too.

So the best move here is to be thoughtful, but practical. You wanna shoot for a gift that’s functional, not classic hum-drum, and most of all useful. What could be something that’s useful? Well think about it….

For the most part, parents get old. And I mean like…..OLD (too much?). Which is why you should help them in every way possible to make their day to day lives easier – they did it for you kids – time to return the favor, wouldn’t you say?

One big factor of getting older can be misplacing things.

Car keys.

Phone.

Glasses (my mum’s fucking famous for this – like a modern day Velma from Scooby Doo).

Children.

…joke on that last one.

So wouldn’t it make it easier if you could like, call out to things and they just answer you?

Yeah.

I thought so too.

Which is why I recommend getting the Kensington Proximo.

With this baby, you’ll never again have to be distracted from an intimate moment with your S.O. due to his/her mother ringing saying she needs help with something then turning that inquiry into an hour long gossip session.

Proximo keeps track of your phone and up to four other items with the “tags” provided, so long as you can attach said tags to the things you wanna keep track of.

So if mother-in-law “accidentally forgets” her purse, keys, phone, or any other conceivable thing, she’ll be alerted via her smartphone with a soft alarm that triggers the minute the tag is too far away.

It’s a really beneficial gift for the mother-in-laws that you actually like, too, as this means they’ll spend a lot less of their day trying to track down their phone from the coffee shop they left it behind at while catching up with their friends, and a lot more of their day on more important things – like enjoying their lives.

Now it all boils down to the wife. Dangerous territory here…but with enough thought, you’ll be sure to get the perfect gift for her.

You always wanna think carefully when getting a gift for the woman who bore your children. It’s like stepping into a mine field – be too conventional and you’ll get the disappointed look, fake smile, and shitty reciprocal gift come Father’s Day. Step outside the box too much and you’ll get a slap and that highly inappropriate card with those tacky lingerie selections thrown in your face.

Yep, it boils down to some real Sun Tzu’s Art of War type shiz.

I’ll give you a word of advice – think safe, and classy.

…and safe and classy is what you’ll get with a Michael Kors Slim Silver Case Runway Bracelet Watch.

If it’s one thing your wife’s learned to be, it’s time-management savvy. Between the kids, dinner, housework, and even their own jobs, they’re constantly multi-tasking making sure the ship they run is in, well…ship-shape. I don’t know how the fuck they do it – but all I’ve gotta say is bravo, and keep up the good work…because God knows humanity would be lost without you.

This Michael Kors watch not only helps your lovely lady keep track of little Timmy’s soccer game at 4 or keeping track of that pot roast so the house doesn’t go up in flames, but also adds elegance and grace to both of those activities.

It’ll show you put real thought into a gift because it’s a piece that’s timeless, unique, and versatile – meaning it can be worn by her in a casual and classy environment. Water resistant to 5 ATM and stainless steel, the Michael Kors Slim Silver Case Runway Bracelet Watch can take the everyday abuse of a dedicated mother, while still having her look like she takes care of herself first.

All in all, it’s a great way to let her know that you appreciate her, and always have – even after many years passed.
